"Give a Little Bit" is from the 1977 Supertramp album "Even in the Quietest Moments..." The release of this single became an international hit, peaking at #15 on the Billboard Pop Singles chart and #29 on the UK Singles chart.

In 1992, the single was re- released to raise funds for the ITV Telethon Charity Event, but failed to chart.

Fun Fact: John Helliwell plays alto saxophone on "Give a Little Bit." He also served as MC during the band's concerts, talking and making jokes between songs!

John Halliwell Fun Fact #2: He now leads the Super Big Tramp Band, a jazz big band lineup that plays versions of Supertramp tunes arranged by members of the band... without vocals!
