The choice of Edwyn Collins, whilst talking to Stuart Maconie on 6Music about the launch of his new label with James Endeacott, Analogue Enhanced Digital. ‘Gimme Little Sign’ is the track Edwyn always plays when he’s DJing and, as you can hear, J Dilla sampled it on his track, ‘Signs’:

“‘Gimme Little Sign’ is a classic soul music song by Brenton Wood. It was released in 1967 on the album The Oogum Boogum Song. It was written by Jerry Winn, Alfred Smith and Joseph Hooven. The most well known version is by Brenton Wood, which peaked at number 9 in the U.S., but it has also been a hit for Danielle Brisebois in 1995, also covered by the Sattalites, Hepcat, Mina, Don Dixon, Syl Johnson in 1979 on his album Uptown Shakedown and Peter Andre. Peter Andre’s version was his second single, released in 1992, which went on to win him an ARIA Award in 1993 for highest-selling Australian single of the year. It was also covered by Roberto Jordán and Cox in one Spanish version and by Los Straitjackets in another. Jay Dee aka J-Dilla remixed the song, which was released as a 45 rpm promo. The song was also recorded by Constant Meeuws singer from a Dutch group called Skateboard at the end of the 70’s and was produced by Rudy Bennett from the Motions.”
