Joey Molland assumes half the songwriting on this, the group's heaviest and most serious album. Ass (1974) is solid gold Badfinger. It was partly recorded at the then state-of-the-art Apple Studios at 3 Savile Row, London, and contains the group's valedictory 'Apple Of My Eye', written by Pete Ham. The album was produced by Badfinger with Chris Thomas.
This Remastered CD includes five Bonus Tracks, all produced by Badfinger themselves. Four of these are previously unreleased versions, and one is a previously unreleased song:
• ‘Do You Mind’
• ‘Apple Of My Eye’
• ‘Blind Owl’
• ‘Regular’ / previously unreleased song

Of course, it is worth the price of admission alone for Pete's adios to Apple Records, "Apple of my Eye" and his brilliant, dark closer ("Timeless" which ends in a never ending "(I Want You) She's So Heavy" outro) - but Joey's Icicles is absolutely beautiful - my favorite song on the album, and Tom's Blind Owl is as wonderful.
Not to be left out, is Mike Gibbon's "Cowboy" Ringo-esque - yes - brilliant - yes!
Give it a chance, don't listen to everyone, and just buy it!
As an aside, if you are a Badfinger completest, purchase the digital-only downloads in addition to the CD. With the digital downloads and the bonus tracks on the CD, one can now created the first, rejected and unreleased version of "Ass." The track listing is as follows:
Get Away (Previously Unreleased)
When I Say (Previously Unreleased)
Apple of My Eye (Previously Unreleased)
The Winner (Previously Unreleased)
Blind Owl (Previously Unreleased)
Do You Mind (Previously Unreleased)
Piano Red (Previously Unreleased)
Regular (Previously Unreleased)
I Can Love You (Previously Unreleased)
Timeless (Previously Unreleased)
Both "I Can Love You" and "The Winner" were produced by Todd Rundgren. As with the first unreleased version of "Straight Up," it is an interesting piece of Badfinger history that is now available officially instead of as a low quality bootleg.
Badfinger never made a bad album. They deserved so much more success.
