Background and content

All About a Feeling was recorded in two sessions between November 1972 and March 1973, both at the Jack Clement Recording Studio in Nashville, Tennessee, United States. The session in November 1972 produced the songs "I'll Try a Little Bit Harder" and "Just Call Me". The session in March 1973 produced the rest of the album's material. All About a Feeling consisted of eleven tracks, all of which were written entirely by Fargo. This was unlike any of Fargo's previous releases, which contained either one or two tracks not written by Fargo herself. The opening track entitled "It Do Feel Good" would later become a Top 10 hit when it was featured on her 1974 release, Miss Donna Fargo.

All About a Feeling was originally released on a LP record, containing six songs on the A side of the record and five songs on the B side of the record. The album has never be reissued on a compact disc since its original 1973 release.

In Canada, the single peaked at #2 on the RPM Country Singles chart and #55 on the RPM Adult Contemporary Singles chart. "I'll Try a Little Bit Harder" was spawned as the album's second and final single in January 1974, which peaked at #6 on the Billboard Magazine Hot Country Singles list. All About a Feeling was released in October 1973 on Dot Records and peaked at #5 on the Billboard Magazine Top Country Albums chart.
