Ain't No Big Thing - Scotty Todd

Recommended Posts

After doing some hunting on the web, I thought I would share this info I found about this tune that had been bugging me for years

 

Scotty Todd was the lead singer for Scotty Todd and The Toddsmen from Benson, North Carolina USA 
After leaving the music business he became as pastor of Engle Wood Assembly of God in Rocky Mount NC, until resigning in 1989 
A few years later he started Benson First Assembly of God in Benson NC. He passed while preaching a sermon in 2003.

Sounds somewhat like a Magnificent Men recording.  Not nearly as good as The Radiants' original.  The singing is decent, but he had limited voice range.  The instrumentation is fairly weak (as many re-makes of Motown, The Chicago Sound, and The Philadelphia Sound usually are).

Jimmy James and the Vagabonds for me

From memory I'm sure the US and the UK LP tracks are slightly different on this song
