Shirley Ellis-The Nitty Gritty
Shirley Ellis was a sixties soul singer who had a few hits with “The Name Game” and “The Clapping Song”. “The Nitty Gritty” is from 1963. This version doesn’t have the “live” sound that the single had and with the fakey crap stripped away, it’s a tough little R&B number.
