Abbey Road SIDE #3, maybe!?!?!?!??!
on July 10, 2004
Well, I'm sure you all have heard the problems this band went through, so I won't even go into that. I will say this though, this recording seems to be focused on what was going on around the band at the time...tough pill to swallow. Just over 30 minutes, this album broke new ground, a different approach then previous releases. I won't sit here and insult anyone's intelligence by stating this is their greatest work. Personally, its my favorite. From start to finish, no bad tracks, some medley's (including important contributions from Mike), some excellent choices of intruments never used before on a Badfinger record. This is by all means, the last record of the Classic Badfinger lineup. The comparisons to Abbey Road are prevelent...but it stands to this day as a Classic Lost Album that will go down in history as just that...Lost. No hit songs here, no tradmark sounds, just pure brilliance.
If I could possibly improve this great release, I would have included "Timeless" (similar time signature to "I Want You, She's so Heavy") somewhere in between the original's release first side and second. Would have been a nice compliment to the Abbey Road theory?!?
This document should not be overlooked by any casual, hardcore or any Beatle fan!
