This is the seventh in a series of posts that highlight classic rock songs featuring someone interesting sitting in on the recording session. For this series I post the song on one day and identify who is sitting in the following day. I hope you enjoy the concept and maybe learn some interesting music history in the process.
My selection for this post is Day After Day by Badfinger, from their album Straight Up. If you have been reading this blog you know that Badfinger is a favorite of mine. Listen to the song and see if you can tell who is sitting in. I will give you a couple of hints, his specific work on this song is uncredited but he played a major role on this album.
The answer will be posted tomorrow along with some additional background information.
Send in your guesses and I will identify the the first person who gives the correct answer in tomorrow’s post.
There are three well known musicians sitting in the making of this record/LP; Al Kooper, Todd Rindgren and last but not least George Harrison. If you listen to this number you can hear the guitar of George playing and strumming in Day After Day.
By the way, Straight Up is also one of my favourites, especially Baby Blue.
