The song John Lennon called his “all-time favourite”

The track was a rarely heard number titled ‘Angel Baby’ and originally recorded by Rosie and the Originals in 1960.

The song was originally scheduled to be a part of John Lennon’s iconic covers album Rock ‘n’ Roll, a record which is drenched in infamy for the singer. A contractual agreement, Lennon phoned in some of the covers while others he gave his utmost too. One song that probably landed in the latter category was ‘Angel Baby’, which Lennon provided a rendition for during the sessions.
