    Re: Badfinger.

    Tragic story, this band. I highly recommend Dan Matovina's "Without You" for an in-depth chronicle of the band's downward spiral. If you're new to the band, I'd recommend starting with "Straight Up" & "Wish You Were Here". Both are just mindblowing.

    Re: Badfinger.

    Thanks for this thread. I love this band. It is sad that this band seems to be remembered for the tragic way their story ended, but when you listen to songs like "Day After Day", "Without You", "Sweet Tuesday Morning" or "Midnight Caller" I mean, Oh God, the very definition of bittersweet. Pete, Tom and Mike RIP.

    Re: Badfinger.

    Great band.:grinthumb

    I never knew that they wrote and sang the following song as it was such a big hit for Harry Nilsson. Their original version is very good.

    They are definitely a band of note.

    I particularly liked Apple of My Eye off that ass album..

    Re: Badfinger.

    One of my All-Time favorite bands.

    I've read "Without You - The Tragic Story of Badfinger" by Dan Matovina. A now expensive, but tremendous read. Detailed explanations of the meanings behind each song and the constant bickering of Joey Molland and his Wife.

    Straight Up is by far, my favorite album of theirs. From Sometimes, Name of the Game, Perfection, Baby Blue, Flying, It's Over and Sweet Tuesday Morning. There is not a single tune of filler on it.

    They recently discovered the Original Masters for Straight Up and No Dice.

    Ummmmm. If you are even REMOTELY a fan of this band, you owe it to yourself to get these new Remasters.

    It is NOT a gimmick. A lot of the "muddiness" is cleared as well as some of the tape hiss. I picked them up off of Amazon. Unfortunately, the tapes are probably in bad shape after this remaster, so this will probably be it.

    Just giving you all a head's up.
