11 APRIL 1966
Cher’s second solo album ‘The Sonny Side of Cher’ was released during this month. It featured mostly cover songs with a couple of originals by her then-husband Sonny Bono. It peaked at #26 in the US album charts, and at #11 in the UK.
As with her first album, it had a Dylan cover, this one being ‘Like a Rollin’ Stone’. Backing was provided - as it was on most of Sonny and Cher's recordings - by the legendary session musicians ‘The Wrecking Crew’, who also provided the backing on most of your favourite 1960s music from the US west coast.
This was a great song, with brilliant musical backing in the studio, but Cher seems to struggle with the rhythm and trip over the words sometimes.
