"Little by Little" was released by The Rolling Stones on the Decca label on February 21, 1964, as the B-side to their version of "Not Fade Away". Also included on their debut album The Rolling Stones in April 1964.

Recorded in late January 1964, it was their first Top 5 hit in Great Britain, reaching #3. Phil Spector was in the studio, and was given co-credit with "Nanker Phelge" for writing this typical up-tempo Stones blues, a pastiche of "Shame, Shame, Shame" by Jimmy Reed.
