Note: V2 first appeared in the 1990s on 'Deep Down In the Vaults' as "What's The Matter Little Darling", the name it was known by for years. V1, is a recording on 'The Definitive River Outtakes Collection Volume 2' with the same name, faster pitch, and inferior quality, that runs 15 seconds slower. In the studio logs of the Darkness sessions, there are no records of "Ain't Good Enough For You" or "What's The Matter Little Darling". Author Clinton Heylin believes takes were recorded on August 9 and September 26, 1977 at the Record Plant, under the names, "New Rocker" and "First New Rocker". The first official appearance of this song was on the second CD of "The Promise" as "Ain't Good Enough For You", and he makes the good point that on the accompanying Thrill Hill Vault DVD (V3b), Bruce is shown trying to add a vocal overdub to an already existing track at the Record Plant, which suggests it had been recorded earlier. V3a has more developed lyrics than V2, including "getting cool like Jimmy Iovine" and "Sherry Darling" party noises. This song bears some slight resemblance to "This Little Girl", the hit song Bruce donated to Gary U.S. Bonds in 1980.
