Fats on Friday – We Need a Little Love

This song was written in 1942 by Fats and Ed Kirkeby.  He uses a full orchestra here which he was moving toward using more frequently—after all, it was the Big Band.  This record  came toward the end of his life.  It is one of his lesser known compositions, which hardly got any play.  I agree with the posters on You Tube, it certainly should have been far more popular.
