“THE KINKS – ALL DAY AND ALL OF THE NIGHT”

05 Sep

“All Day and All of the Night” is a song by the English rock band The Kinks from 1964. It reached No. 2 on the UK Singles Chart[5] and No. 7 on Billboard’s United States chart in 1965.[6] The song was released on the American studio album Kinks-Size.

Background

Like their previous hit “You Really Got Me”, the song relies on a simple sliding power chord riff, although this song’s riff is slightly more complicated, incorporating a B Flat after the chords F and G. Otherwise, the recordings are similar in beat and structure, with similar background vocals, progressions, and guitar solos.

Jimmy Page may have appeared on the single’s b-side, “I Gotta Move”, which gives credits as “possibly Jimmy Page acoustic 12 string guitar, else Ray Davies”.[7]

Dave Davies claimed that the song was where he “found his voice,” saying, “I liked the guitar sound on ‘All Day And All Of The Night,’ the second single we had. When they tried to develop amplifiers that had pre-gain and all, I thought it wasn’t quite right, and I struggled with the sound for a while. I never liked Marshalls, because they sounded like everybody else. Then in the mid ’70s I started using Peavey, and people said, “Nobody uses Peavey – country and western bands use them” [laughs]. I used to blow them up every night. I used two Peavey Maces together, and it was brilliant.”[8]
