Little By Little

This has to be a rare item:  Junior Wells’s “Little By Little” backed with “Come On In This House.”  It was issued as Profile 4011 in February 1960.  Unlike previous Wells blues songs, “Little By Little” featured a back-up vocal group.  This must have paid off, because it was on the national R&B charts in the late spring and early summer.  The flip side is “Come On In This House” not “Come On A My House.”  Junior Wells may have consented to using group harmony, but he would have sounded ridiculous singing “Come On A My House.”
