Album Review

Released in 1989 when the post-Apple albums were hard to come by, Rhino's The Best of Badfinger, Vol. 2 does an excellent job of summarizing the last three Pete Ham albums (Badfinger, Wish You Were Here, and the unreleased [until 2000] Head First), adding a couple of selections from Airwaves for good measure. Fanatics can complain about missing tracks (and, at a certain stage, most Badfinger fans were fanatics by their very nature), yet this hits most of the high points, offering proof that the group remained viable — in some ways getting better — until the end. Wish You Were Here remains essential, and Capitol's 2000 The Very Best of Badfinger is the best overall compilation, yet as a sampler of the group's latter days, this is hard to beat.

Biography

Formed: 1968 in London, England

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '60s, '70s, '80s

There are few bands in the annals of rock music as star-crossed in their history as Badfinger. Pegged as one of the most promising British groups of the late '60s and the one world-class talent ever signed to the Beatles' Apple Records label that remained with the label, Badfinger enjoyed the kind of success in England and America that most other bands could only envy. Yet a string of memorable hit singles -- "Come and Get It," "No Matter What," "Day After Day," and "Baby Blue" -- saw almost no reward...
