I've been wanting to do this for ages.
Back in the 90's, Rykodisc released two collections of Pete Ham demos. Just in case that name doesn't ring a bell, Pete Ham was the leader of Badfinger, a band with a sad and tragic history that released too few records. But I am not here to relive that tale.
Like most collections that feature rare and unreleased material, both "Golders Green" and "7 Park Avenue" have highs and lows. I've sequenced my favorite tracks from both, creating a solid 35 minute record that is very playable.
Badfinger's output is uneven, at best. At least that's how I feel. The best material belongs to Pete Ham, who also possesses the best voice. The tracks here need a little spit and polish, but aside from a few flubbed lyrics, or some "da-da-da-ing" in place of lyrics, I wouldn't do much in the way of producing. The songs shine on their own.
A Lonely Day
Would You Deny
It Doesn't Really Matter
Makes Me Feel Good
Hand In Hand
No Matter What
Live Love All Of Your Days
I'll Kiss You Goodnight
