The song was written by Domino and his producer Dave Bartholomew. Released as a single in 1955, it topped the US Billboard R&B chart and sold more than a million copies.
A number of cover versions were recorded by McCartney on 20 and 21 July, although he initially had no plans to issue them as an album. ‘Ain’t That A Shame’ was first released a b-side of the ‘My Brave Face’ single.
It was included on Choba B CCCP, released in the Soviet Union in 1988 and internationally three years later.
A live version from the Paul McCartney World Tour was included on the 1990 album Tripping The Live Fantastic.
