Rita Johns - A Little Bit Of Love 1981

Ladies and gentlemen, I'm the first blogger in the world, who present one of the exquisite modern soul songs entitled "A Little Bit Of Love" by Rita Johns. It has never been played on radio.
Rita Johns is an obscure blue eyed soul singer from Canada. She is lesser known for another club song entitled “Haunted by love”. She released an album entitled “One Woman Show” on Jingle Machine Records (JMR) in 1981.
It was recorded at Zaza Sound Productions, Toronto and Manta Sound, Toronto.
Most of the songs on the album were written by David Schindler and Rita Johns. Produced and arranged by David Schindler.

Pat Labarbera with his sax accompanies Rita on vocals.

Pat (Pascel Emmanuel) LaBarbera (Born April 7, 1944 in Mt. Morris, New York, USA) is considered one of the finest saxophone soloists working within the framework of John Coltrane's principals. The connection was most obvious when he worked with Elvin Jones groups which began in 1975.
He moved to Toronto, Ontario, Canada in 1974 and is a member of the faculty at Humber College. A true intellectual of improvisation, he has been among the key members of the Toronto jazz scene for more than 30 years.

Enjoy this exquisite track. All the other songs from the album have different style.

Note: The above posted track is not played in full

Nice song, always reminds me of Angela Bofill. BTW, it did get some plays on British radio in the 8ts.
