All Of My Love

Lyrics: Unknown
Music: Unknown

This appears on a fragment of a list from 13 January 1966, but there is no known tape in circulation. The most probable explanation is that the title is a mistake for Oh Boy which contains the lyrics "All my love, all my kissin." Indeed, the original version by Sonny West was titled "All My Love."

That seems to me more plausible than DeadBase's suggestion that it might be the song "(You Were Made For) All Of My Love" by Jackie Wilson. I have a copy of that and I can't believe the Dead covered it (it's dreadful!).

One uncertainty about identifying this as "Oh Boy" is that DeadBase once listed Pigpen as singing "All Of My Love", whereas it was Weir who sang "Oh Boy" on other occasions.

Other suggestions that have been made are "All Of My Love" by The Turbans, "All My Lovin'" by the Beatles and "All Your Love" by Otis Rush and Willie Dixon.
