Bari Sax In "Get Back Honky Cat"!

I heard Elton John singin' this one on the radio yesterday, and I liked it so much that I found it on YouTube and played it again!

It's got a low-register Bari Sax that saws through the background like a buzz saw...a really cool effect!

It's also got an unusual key shift...like it modulates a half tone from the verse to the chorus...do you know what I'm talkin' about?

Which one? - there are quite a few versions, and the one I listened to didn't have a bari. sorry no time to trawl through all of them.

Hey, I don't know which one it was...there must be 18 or 20 versions, and don't have the time to go through 'em all until I find the one with the slithering Baritone Sax in the acccompaniment!

Was it the original studio recording rather than one of the many live versions ? I've always liked the groove and sound of this one. Nice bari underpinning the horns and the whole band, but no solo as such.
