Lucille was a classic rock and roll number by Little Richard that came out in February of 1957. Albert Collins (a well-known blues artist) and Richard ("Little Richard") Penniman have the credits as the songwriters. The Beatles were friends with Little Richard and admired his music. They performed together in England in October of 1962 and in Hamburg in November of the same year. Paul especially enjoyed covering Little Richard's songs with his vocal imitation of the original artist. Many other prominent pop groups also covered Lucille, including AC/DC, the Animals, Van Halen, Peter & Gordon, the Everly Brothers, Bill Haley & the Comets, Otis Redding, and John Entwistle (the Who). The Beatles recorded Lucille on September 3, 1963 for the 14th installment of Pop! Go the Beatles, a BBC radio program and four days later for the BBC's Saturday Club program. The second recording was released as part of the Live at the BBC collection. Before the BBC recordings, Lucille had been part of the Beatles' performance set for quite a while. Five and a half years later, in the Twickenham Film Studios on January 3 and 7, 1969, the Beatles again performed Lucille as part of the Get Back recording sessions.
