All I Ever Need Is You is the fourth studio album by American pop duo Sonny & Cher, released in 1971 by Kapp/MCA Records.

Album information[edit]

The album was released in 1971 and reached #14 on the Billboard album charts[2] and was certified Gold by the RIAA.

The title track was a top ten hit, reaching #7 on the US Hot 100 chart, and a #1 on the Adult Contemporary chart. The next single, "A Cowboy's Work Is Never Done" also became a top ten hit, reaching #8 on the US Hot 100. Its top 40 follow-up single, "When You Say Love", was not taken from this LP but its B-side "Crystal Clear/Muddy Waters" was.

The album is largely a collection of cover songs including "More Today Than Yesterday" (originally by The Spiral Starecase) and "United We Stand". The only song performed by Bono solo was "You Better Sit Down Kids", which was previously a top ten solo hit by Cher.
