Nay, Will She Deceive.

The next song up for the "With The Beatles" Parlophone LP/CD is a cover tune entitled "Devil In Her Heart". This constitutes the third vocal number by George Harrison. With the call-and-response background vocals, it would have been nice to have a stereo spread of all vocals on this song. But, since this was done on twin track, mono is still preferable as far as balance goes.

"Devil In Her Heart" is probably one of the more obscure choices for a cover by the Beatles. It was originally done by the Donays ( a girl group ) and the original title for the song was "Devil In His Heart". The tune was originally written by Richard B. Drapkin.

"Devil In Her Heart" was recorded by The Beatles at EMI studio two on Thursday July 18 1963. It was captured in three takes with three additional overdubs (vocals, percussion). The song was mixed for mono on August 21 1963 in Studio three. The stereo mix was done October 29 1963 also in Studio three.

"Devil In Her Heart" is available on the Parlophone UK LP/CD "With The Beatles" as well as the Capitol of Canada 6000 series LP "Beatlemania: With the Beatles" and the US Capitol LP/CD "The Beatles' Second Album".

"Devil In Her Heart" was performed twice for BBC radio. Both times were on the "Pop Go The Beatles" programme: episodes 10 and 15.
