We’re stepping into the weekend by revisiting a magical moment from the incomparable Amy Winehouse who put her unique spin on a Beatles classic.
Winehouse’s debut album, Frank was released 2003 and emerged as major critical success and was ultimately nominated for the Mercury Prize. With the type of soul and rhythm and blues in her vocals, Winehouse offered a major alternative in the pop industry as she captured the hearts of a nation. She followed Frank with the release Back to Black three years later before issues with alcohol and drug abuse dominated her life.
Winehouse’s untimely death of alcohol poisoning on 23 July 2011 at the age of 27 rocked the music industry, a voice, performer and British icon taken far too soon. As the anniversary of her death closes in, Far Out is dipping back into its archive to remember one of her most memorable performances.
Winehouse, appearing at Glastonbury 2004 the same yea Sir Paul McCartney performed, stopped by BBC Three to perform her live cover of ‘All My Loving’ in the studio. Winehouse, whose voice is like none other, wonderfully converted The Beatles pop classic into a romantic number oozing with soul.
Her acoustic take on the Beatles track was officially recorded for the Glastonbury Calling TV documentary in 2004 and subsequently released as part of the posthumous Amy Winehouse at the BBC LP.
Looking fresh-faced and at perfect ease, Winehouse’s vocal range takes The Beatles track to a whole new level. Enjoy the footage, below.
