I had never thought about how extensively this chart was covered, and by what an amazing range of artists. Thank you for this.


Steve L.

Thanks, Bernie.

The Beatles began by covering American R & B songs at the Cavern Club. Even after they began recording original music -- mostly by Lennon & McCartney -- they kept Long Tall Sally in their live sets. It may be the last non-original song they ever performed live (although they also kept performing Twist and Shout).

Ian Holloway

You’re right, Steve. They played it (along with Rock and Roll Music) in their very last “proper” concert in San Francisco in Aug, 1966.


At that last concert in SF, they also did Chuck Berry's Rock and Roll Music (first song, LTS was the last song).
