Paul McCartney Plays She’s A Woman For First Time In 19 Years At First Australian Show #SETLIST

The Paul McCartney fan treat on the opening night of the ‘Got Back’ tour in Australia was The Beatles ‘She’s A Woman’. Sir Paul last played the song at Glastonbury in 2004 and has only ever performed The Beatles b-side solo 21 times before but it did get a bash with The Beatles 123 times.

‘She’s A Woman’ was a throwaway song for The Beatles, appearing on the b-side of the ‘I Feel Fine’ single in 1964 but not appearing on an official studio album. The song was recorded during the ‘Beatles For Sale ‘ sessions on 8 October, 1964.

However, in the USA where the early Beatles catalogue was bastardised and did not resemble the official albums the rest of the world heard, the song did appear on their hybrid release ‘Beatles ‘65’.

The first album to feature the album outside of the USA was the Australia only release ‘The Beatles Greatest Hits Volume 2’. At the time, EMI Australia wanted something to fill the gap between ‘Revolver’ (August 1966) and ‘Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band’ (May 1967) so threw together ‘Greatest Hits Volume 2’ for an Australian only release on 16 February, 1967. The Australian album was the only original 1965 stereo release in the world of ‘She’s A Woman’ until ‘The Beatles Box’ was released in 1980. An altered version of the stereo appeared on ‘Beatles ‘65’ in the USA with added reverb.
