I've Just Seen a Face

Paul McCartney performs "I've Just Seen a Face" during Wings' 1976 Wings Over America Tour.



'I've Just Seen a Face" is an album track on the Beatles' "Help!" album in Great Britain, released on 6 August 1965, and "Rubber Soul" in the United States. Paul McCartney, the composer, sings lead but does not play bass because there is no bass line.

Paul has said:
It was slightly country and western from my point of view... it was faster, though, it was a strange uptempo thing. I was quite pleased with it. The lyric works; it keeps dragging you forward, it keeps pulling you to the next line, there's an insistent quality to it that I liked.
The Beatles were used to whipping out recordings quickly in 1965, so not only did they complete "I've Just Seen a Face" on 14 June 1965 at Abbey Road Studies, they also completed "Yesterday" and "I'm Down." That's quite a day's work!

Paul likes "I've Just Seen a Face" and has performed it on several of his tours, most famously during his "Wings Over America" tour in 1976. He also has performed it during the "Out There" tour in 2013-15. Paul's solo versions can be found on 1991 album "Unplugged" (The Official Bootleg) and on the 2005 DVD, "Live In Red Square."
