Phoebe Snow - Every Night (CBS 6842 - 1978)

In 1978, New York singer-songwriter Phoebe Snow was being played regularly on the radio with a familiar song from the pen of Paul McCartney. The song Every Night appeared on McCartney's debut self-titled solo album in 1970 just after the break up of The Beatles. Phoebe Snow's version of the song was produced by Phil Ramone and Barry Beckett and was released just prior to Snow's fifth album AGAINST THE GRAIN, the song being the album's lead track. In 2011, after several subsequent solo album releases and a series of guest appearances with such prominent artists as Paul Simon, Dave Mason, Janis Ian and Ladysmith Black Mambazo, Phoebe Snow died after suffering a cerebral hemorrhage at the age of just 60.
