"Act Naturally"

OK, more Fabness: This '63 Russell/Morrison composition was inspired by the excuse Johnny Russell gave his then girlfriend as to why he was going to L.A. Buck Owens and The Buckaroos' 1st #1 hit. The Beatles' cover was sung by Ringo and was the B-side for "Yesterday". It peaked at #47. Buck Owens and Ringo released a duet record and video in '89, peaking at #27 on the Country charts.

Yesterday's answer: Joni Mitchell's "Free Man In Paris". I saw her doing it live at The Spectrum in Philly in '76 - blew me away!
