|Rick Springfield - All Day and All of the Night|
|All Day And All Of The
(Words and Music by Ray Davies)
Originally recorded by: The Kinks
This was the Kink's fourth single and second hit. It was released late in 1964 and it rose all the way to number two in the UK and number seven in America.
Jimmy page has claimed to have done the guitar solo on the recording. Ray Davies responds: "Look, my brother Dave hasn't got too much going for him, but to try and take that stuff away from him is bullshit. He invented that guitar sound. I remember him coming to the session. We had to record at 10 o'clock in the morning, as we had a gig that night. Page was doing a session in the other studio. When he came in to hear Dave's solo, he laughed and snickered. And now he says HE played it!""
Ray Davies filed
legal action against The Doors claiming that "Hello, I Love You"
was stolen from this song.
This song was included on the Limited Edition Greatest Hits Alive Cd. Rick also performed this song several times in concert including:
