Friday On My Mind 15: Badge

Every time I hear this song it takes me back to the Church Hall in Dumbarton and the youth club I used to go to.

I suggested it to the guy in charge of putting the records on. He asked if it was any good. It was.

It is.

The guitar riff at the start of the break is similar to the one in You Never Give Me Your Money (repeated in Carry That Weight) from that great medley of songs on side two of The Beatles’ Abbey Road. Not surprising since George Harrison had a hand in Badge’s conception and he and Eric Clapton often worked together.

Cream: Badge
