This is a previously unreleased song written and performed by Brad Delp and Steve Baker.

Here's the description from the YouTube video, posted by Steve Baker:

Brad and I co-wrote this back in the mid 90's. As you will be able to tell from the lyric, the inspiration was the Beatles appearances on Ed Sullivan back in '64.

We originally recorded it at Winterwood Studios (my basement). It was recorded in a morning and hastily mixed to a cassette for him and me to listen to and finish at a later date (hey, we had a tee time).

Unfortunately, the original masters were lost and the cassette also went missing until 2012.

Amazingly, the cassette was in reasonable condition and through the wonders of modern technology available to me at Winding Pond Studios (my basement) I was able to finish it up and improve the sound quality.

It's still a bit rough but I hope you'll enjoy it anyway. Listen carefully, you can hear Brad humming through my piano solo.

I've been sitting on this for awhile but decided what better time than this, the 50th anniversary of the Beatles' debut in America, to share this with everybody.
