All I Ever Need Is You is the fifth compilation album by American pop rock duo Sonny & Cher, released in 1990 by Universal/MCA Records.

Album information[edit]

It was released in 1990 and did not enter the Billboard album charts.

"All I Ever Need Is You" was released sixteen years after the 1974 Greatest Hits compilation. This was the first collection of Sonny & Cher's songs from her time with Kapp/MCA to be released on new digital format compact disc, and includes songs from All I Ever Need Is You, Mama Was a Rock and Roll Singer and their two live albums, Sonny & Cher Live and Live in Las Vegas Vol. 2.

The album included two Bono solo tracks, the divorce song "You Better Sit Down Kids", "Crystal Clear, Muddy Waters" and the four live tracks come from the duo's early-1970s cabaret act. It also included the ten-minute "Mama Was A Rock And Roll Singer Papa Used To Write All Her Songs". (this is the only CD appearance of the full-length version)

The live tracks, "The Beat Goes On", "I Got You Babe", "United We Stand" and a Sonny-sung "Bang Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down)", are in the Vegas style familiar to fans of the duo's kitschy but popular variety show.
