About The Song:

The song was recorded at least twice. The first version produced by Geoff Emerick was not released until the rerelease of "Straight Up" (1993) as one of the bonus-tracks. The second version was part of the Straight Up album released in 1971 on Apple Records. The single version was a remix by Al Kooper of the Geoff Emerick recording. Both versions are very strong - among Badfinger's best recordings! The band played the song live on several occasions.
