Evolution of a great piano riff

  1. 1956: “Bad Penny Blues” by Humphrey Lyttelton (produced by George Martin)
  2. 1968: “Lady Madonna” by The Beatles (produced by George Martin)
  3. 1968: “Lady Madonna” by Fats Domino

Sorry I can’t give iTunes links to these, but they’re not available (no Beatles on iTunes for now). The Beatles and Fats Domino recordings are easy enough to find. You can buy “Bad Penny Blues” here. It’s worth it.
