|Long Tall Sally (GEP 8913)
|"Long Tall Sally", also known as
"Long Tall Sally (The Thing)" is a rock and roll song
written by Robert "Bumps" Blackwell, Enotris Johnson, and
Little Richard. Richard recorded it for Specialty Records,
which released it as a single in March 1956, backed with
"Slippin' and Slidin'".
It became one of the singer's best-known hits and has become a rock and roll standard covered by hundreds of artists, including Elvis Presley, Fleetwood Mac, the Kinks and the Beatles.
"Long Tall Sally" was the most durable song in their live repertoire, lasting from their earliest days as the Quarrymen in 1957 through to their last public concert in August 1966. As with the majority of their Little Richard remakes, Paul McCartney sang lead vocals.
The group recorded "Long Tall Sally" at EMI Studios in London on March 1, 1964, during sessions for A Hard Day's Night, although it was ultimately not included on that album.
In the United Kingdom, "Long Tall Sally" was released on the UK EP of the same name on 19 June, 1964.
"Long Tall Sally" was the last song the Beatles performed live in front of a paying audience. It was a frequent set closer during their 1966 tour—which would turn out to be their last—and they used it to close out their final show at San Francisco's Candlestick Park on 29 August, 1966.
