The Beatles – Act Naturally | El Mundo de THE BEATLES

60: ‘Act Naturally’- b-side to ‘Yesterday’- on Past Masters I album. ‘Act Naturally’ a country hit a few years earlier was a perfect song for Ringo to sing. It was originally on the b-side to ‘Yesterday’- you can now find it on the Past Masters I compilation. One of my favorite Ringo covers. Ringo sings ‘they’re gonna put me in the movies’- he certainly was the best actor in the band.

Long Tall Sally (EP) - Wikipedia

#159: ‘Long Tall Sally’- from Past Masters I. Sooner or later Paul had to do a cover of one of his heroes-Little Richard. The Beatles had been doing ‘Long Tall Sally’ from the beginning- in 1964 they recorded and released their version of the song- with Paul of course singing. In the UK it was on a 4 song EP- in the US- it was released on The Beatles Second Album. A fine cover song.

  1. I might be in the minority, but I always liked the songs Ringo sang on. I love that he and Buck Owens later recorded the song together as a duet.

    Long Tall Sally – I like the Beatles version better than the original. Paul’s vocal is paramount here!
