COLD CHISEL My Baby - CountDown performance. Stereo. PAL 16:9 transfer

From an episode of iconic Australian music TV show CountDown, dated 3/8/1980. My Baby was the 3rd single from Chisel's superb 1980 album "East". It was a rare composition by bassist Phil Small and just snuck into the Australian Top 40 (#40) in September of that year.

"My Baby" was a 1980 single from Australian rock band Cold Chisel, the third released from the album East and the first of the band's singles not to be written by organist Don Walker. This was the only track credited solely to bass player Phil Small on any of the band's albums apart from "Notion For You" on the 1994 rarities album Teenage Love (Small co-wrote "The Game" from Twentieth Century with Walker).

The song proved to be one of the band's most popular, featuring a clearly-defined pop sound quite different from Cold Chisel's more usual hard-edged rock. Guitarist Ian Moss provides lead vocals and Joe Camilleri of Jo Jo Zep & The Falcons contributed a saxophone solo. While "My Baby" was the third single released from East in Australia, in the U.S. it was the first. Promotional copies sent to radio stations there were wrapped in a baby's nappy as a marketing gimmick. It was the only Cold Chisel single to chart in America, reaching 32 on the Mainstream Rock chart.
