Dizzy Miss Lizzy was written by Larry Williams in 1958. He was a rhythm-and-blues singer from New Orleans whom the Beatles particularly admired. This song would be the third of three Larry Williams covers recorded by the group. John particularly liked singing this lively, up-tempo song, and it was a performance favorite through 1962. It was resurrected for the 1965 US tour, and Lennon also performed it as part the "Plastic Ono Band's" live gig in Toronto in September of 1969. The recorded track was made during the Help! recording sessions (May 10, 1965, in 7 takes). McCartney added electric piano to his bass, and Ringo added a cowbell in the take 7 overdub. The song appeared in the UK version of Help! and in the US in the later release, Beatles VI, where it closes the album. In the CD release of Help! listen for the pesky and bizarre reverb added to the vocal track, something that surely would not have gotten past the group or George Martin during their productive years.
