The Beatles’ “Revolver” was released in the UK on August 5, 1966. On the same day, Cliff Bennett And The Rebel Rousers released a cover of “Got To Get You Into My Life“, produced by Paul McCartney (uncredited).
Cliff Bennett was someone we knew. We’d met him a few years before in Hamburg. We admired him; he admired us. He was one of the first people to notice a song, called ‘If You Gotta Make a Fool of Somebody’, that Freddie and the Dreamers covered, and he said, ‘Wow, that’s the first rock and roll song I’ve ever heard in 3/4 time.’ He was very astute to notice something like that. He was a good singer, and he became a friend, and he wanted to do a cover of ‘Got to Get You Into My Life’, so I produced it for him.Paul McCartney – From “The Lyrics: 1956 to the Present“, 2021
