Sam & Dave You Aint No Big Thing Baby

Recommended Posts

Probably a multitude of reasons.

The uva side of this Sam & Dave 45 ("It Was So Nice While It Lasted" -- US) 1st gets a mention in Billboard mag in March 1963 when it is noted that Roulette's Bud Katzell had cut the song on the duo  -- BTW till their 1st 45 release in 62 they were still known (for all their live gigs) as Sam Moore & Dave Prater   ...... 

The track was released again in March 66 but with a different tuva side ("It Feels So Nice") and not "You Ain't No Big Thing Baby".

"You Ain't No Big Thing Baby" escaped in the UK (on King 45 + LP) in 1966 .......... both the 2nd US 45 & the UK 45 being put out to 'cash in' on the duo's Atlantic / Stax success. 

My guess is that the tracks they had cut for Roulette in 62/63 were remixed for their 1966 outings, to make them sound more like the duo's Stax tracks.

The uva side of the UK King 45 -- "No More Pain" -- was the duo's 1st release on Roulette in 62.
