Out of the 'Blue'

Still one of my top five favorite recordings — Badfinger's "Baby Blue":

For you fellow music nerds out there: Tom Evans and Pete Ham (may they rest in peace) are singing live to their original 16-track recording. Because the lip-synch backing comes from the 16-track, it is slower than the 45 and therefore a bit dirgey by comparison; the song was sped up during mastering, as all good 45s were.
