Whole Lotta Woman

Marvin Rainwater, 1964 (mono), 1992 (stereo).  Recorded: 06-04-64

Johnny Kidd (voc) - Mick Green (lead) - Johnny Spence (bass) - Frank Farley (drums) - Vic Cooper (keyboards)

A stop-gap 45, salvaged from the sessions for the long-planned but aborted debut album.  It's also the first released appearance on vinyl of a regular keyboard player in the line-up, from here until early '66 Vic Cooper from the Redcap days.  His solo here - probably unintentionally - relegates Mick Green in the process as the song wasn't recorded with single release in mind.

 
It takes a whole lotta lovin' to keep my baby happy
It takes a whole lotta lovin', a whole lotta holdin' her hand
It takes a whole lotta lovin' to keep my baby happy
It takes a whole lotta woman, she's gotta have a whole lotta man

     When she kiss me, she don't miss me
     The best I ever did have
     When she kissed me, I know she kissed me
     I know I've been had

Whole lotta lovin' keeps my baby happy
It takes a whole lotta lovin', a whole lotta holdin' her hand
It takes a whole lotta lovin' to keep my baby happy
'Cos she's a whole lotta woman, gotta have a whole lotta man

     When she kiss me, she don't miss me
     The best I ever did have
     When she kissed me, I know she kissed me
     I know I've been had

Whole lotta lovin' keeps my baby happy
Yeah, a whole lotta lovin', whole lotta holdin' her hand
Whole lotta lovin' keeps my baby happy
'Cos she's a whole lotta woman, she gotta have a whole lotta man

Oh woman, you need a big man, you need lotta man
Aawwww, Yeah, a whole, lotta, woman (etc to fade)
