There Is One Thing I'm Sure Of

The next song on the Parlophone UK LP "Beatles For Sale" is a Lennon/McCartney composition entitled "Every Little Thing". This was a collaboration between the two writers and the vocals are shared. It's a very nice calming type song and it hard to fit in any catagory. It's a very nice and well done recording including the use of timpani by Ringo and a nice strong piano solo (played by Paul) and guitar intro.

The song was first attempted at a Tuesday September 29 1964 session at EMI studio two with four takes recorded. The song was then left until the next session which took place the next day on Wednesday September 30 1964 when the overdubs were added to the basic track. The overdubs were also completed in Studio two.

The mixing session for both the mono and stereo mixes were both done on the same day: Tuesday October 27 1964 both from the control room of Studio two. The stereo mix has a slightly longer fade out.

"Every Little Thing" is available on the Parlophone UK LP/CD: "Beatles For Sale" as well as the North American Capitol LP/CD "Beatles VI" and is also contained on the EMI/Capitol compilation 2-LP "Love Songs".

"Every Little Thing" was never performed live nor was it performed for the BBC.
