Is this just me? The recording seems to be in B at the beginning but somehwere aroung the flute solo it is has arrived in something like C. It is definitely in a higher pitch there.

And, I think, the initial question is less about the key itself but more about the voicings. Whatever key the recording is in, I think Simon doesn't play B / E or F# shapes. I hear a lot of open strings on the recording; sounds like he plays in G (capo 4th or 5th fret) or C (guitar tuned down one semi-tome to make it B).

But this weird key change still puzzles me. Do you hear it too?
