The Rolling Stones’ cut of ‘It’s All Over Now’ is the most famous version of the song. It was the band’s third
single released in America, it stayed in the Billboard Hot 100 for ten weeks and was their first ever #1 hit.
The Valentinos’ original version was played to the Rolling Stones during their first American tour in June
1964 by a New York radio DJ named Murray the K. Six months after Bobby Womack had apparently told Mick
Jagger to get his own song, he received his royalty cheque and then told his manager that Mick Jagger could
have any song he wanted.
