Paul McCartney – “All My Loving” Live
Darling, I’ll Be True!
“All My Loving” was written by Paul McCartney and credited to Lennon–McCartney. It was recorded by The Beatles for their second studio album, “With The Beatles.” It was released on November 22, 1963 and received a pretty good radio airplay. Unlike his other compositions, McCartney wrote the words before the music.
- Number 45 on the US Billboard Hot 100
- Number 1 in the Canadian Charts
The song began as a poem he conceived while he was shaving one morning thinking about his girlfriend Jane Asher, who he met when she interviewed him for the magazine Radio Times. He wrote the music that night. He originally envisioned it as a country/western song.
McCartney provided the lead vocals and George Harrison’s Nashville-style guitar solo was influenced by one of his idols — Chet Atkins. John Lennon also contributed a grinding rhythm guitar track. This song has received critical acclaim after its release!
Richie Unterberger of Allmusic said it “was arguably the best LP-only track the Beatles did before 1964” and that if it had been released as a single in America it would have been a huge hit.
Such incredible talent Paul McCartney has!
