Big Daddy: Within You Without You (1992)

Recently Elsewhere retrieved from our vaults a drone-folk version of George Harrison's Within You Without You by the American singer-songwriter Stephanie Dosen. It was interesting and she was serious.

Big Daddy, a kind of retro doo-wop/satirical ensemble who did a tribute to Sgt Pepper, certainly aren't.

So here they take Harrison's song into a cool, late Fifties coffee bar-cum-club populated by beatniks and hipster poets (with jazz flute accompaniment).

We offer it to you with no further comment.
