“All I Ever Need is You”

Chet Atkins and Jerry Reed


A great version of this classic by these two fretboard geniuses, this popped up on my Spotify “This is Chet Atkins” playlist this morning. 

Just over two minutes and you’ll wish it was longer. I could listen to this 10 times in a row, no problem.

Here’s a live version. 

Ray Charles live version.

Ray Charles original version.

Sonny & Cher

“All I Ever Need is You” was a hit for Sonny & Cher in 1971, after the original was released by Ray Charles in the same year.
