If you feel like reminiscing, walk off into the midnight sun (Badfinger)

The Iveys Maybe Tomorrow/ And Her Daddy's a Millionaire (Apple, Apple 3 1968)

Before they were Badfinger they were Buddy Holly/ Hollies fans as well as Beatle fans - they were The Iveys!

Maybe Tomorrow was one of the famous first four Apple releases along with Jackie Lomax, The Black Dyke Mills Band, Mary Hopkin and a nifty little combo who put out a groovy little pop song called Hey Jude.

I have a soft spot for Maybe Tomorrow. It should have been a hit and it was in Europe but it did nothing much anywhere else.

My theory is that the Pete Ham factor and the Joey Mollard factor was yet to come and so this was a last gasp by The Iveys. It's still a groovy little number worth a revisit.

Hidden gem - And her a rockier song which was a pointer to their future direction. It was only a B side, didn't make the original Maybe Tomorrow album or the soundtrack to Magic Christian (Badfinger redid some Ivey's material including Maybe Tomorrow for that album but not And Her Daddy's...).
