THE BEATLES - I Call Your Name

THE BEATLES - 'Long Tall Sally' EP (Parlophone GEP 8913) June 1964

It's been awhile since I posted something by The Beatles but I prompted myself to showcase this EP when I realised it was released in June 1964, exactly 45 years ago!! How scary is that?

It's a great four track EP where The Beatles really let go with rockers they often performed on their way up to super stardom at The Cavern in Liverpool. The song that particulary sticks out for me is the John Lennon original 'I Call Your Name'. This song was given away to Billy J Kramer to record in the Summer of 1963.

Obviously Lennon still thought it could work for The Beatles and it was earmarked for the film 'A Hard Day's Night' but the track was never used.
The recording of 'I Call Your Name' was completed and mixed in March 1964 and it eventually saw a release on this EP a few months later.
