"I'll Be There" is a song written and originally recorded by Bobby Darin in 1960. It was first released as B-side to his single "Bill Bailey" (ATCO 6167).[2] As such it entered the Billboard charts on September 11, 1960 and reached position 79.[3]

Cover versions[edit]

Invariably used as the epilogue song at The Cavern Club,[citation needed] it became a Canadian number one hit for one of its bands, Gerry and the Pacemakers (The US and UK singles were different recordings).

Elvis Presley recorded a cover version in early 1969. The song was released in April 1970 as the first track on side two of Presley's LP Let's Be Friends. A break from Elvis' early rock-style music and his long stint recording pop film soundtracks, the song features many big band arrangements and an extended jazzy instrumental section. The track runs 2:21.

Other artists recording the song included Cissy Houston (a 1970 single) and Cass Elliot, on her album Cass Elliot (1972). It was also sung by Daveigh Chase in the "D.I.V.O.R.C.E." episode of the television series Big Love. Chase's character Rhonda Volmer sang the song while performing a striptease at a club.
