Badfinger was so well known during their short time in music history for their wonderful pop confections in the style of their mentors, the Beatles. So well known for this, and so long forgotten for their own true love, hard and driving rock and roll.
And here on this generous disc, you'll find the "other" Badfinger. The tough group of kids, wailing on guitars, singing their lungs out. You'll hear Pete Ham's sweeping and lusty lead guitar (taking his place along side more notable axe men like Dave Mason and Mick Taylor), Joey and Tommy's driving vocals, Mike Gibbins' powerful drums. They're just blasting away here, on songs familiar to their repertoire and some from other writers.
This is how they liked to be known, and spinning this disc you'll hear what most on these shores didn't get to hear - Badfinger WAS a rock and roll band.

The true test of a band is how they come off during a live performance. Judging by this historical disc, Badfinger was a good live band. On their studio recordings, their performances were polished and well-rehearsed; live, the songs are still melodic, but there is more power and grit, qualities that the studio producer softened to gain radio play. This disc shows Badfinger jamming, the wailing guitar solos extending songs- listen to the long renditions of the two Dave Mason tunes- and hear a "singles" band really boogie! The sound is very good quality. This disc will take a place of honor next to my copies of STRAIGHT UP and NO DICE. At one time, I owned all of their vinyl releases up to the time of Pete Hamm"s unfortunate demise, and I'm sorry I sold them. Many folks treated this band lightly- they were not lightweights, as this live disc proves.

I have to tell the truth, all I really knew of Badfinger were their radio hits, "Come and Get It", "No Matter What You Want",and "Day After Day". I also knew George, and Paul helped them out on the Apple label. I loved all of those songs way back then, and still do now.

I did not follow the band that closely though, never saw them in concert, and did not know their very tragic history. And its all those things combined ----that make this BBC In Concert so wonderful a find. Its a terrific revelation of a great band.

You will find only one of their "Hits" on this cd,"Come and Get it". IMHO that is the weakest song on the disk!!!!

This is a straight ahead rock album from a bygone era that holds its own decades later. It is live and so being the vocals are good but not always great, what is great is the music. The Badfinger I heard on the radio was a great vocal band with good licks and melodies. But this Badfinger:In Concert is totally another, even more wonderful band!

It starts off with a Beatles sounding riff on "Better Days" but the song ends up sounding like something from a Rory Gallagher concert!!! And that's just the beginning!!

Its on to a Dave Mason/Traffic cut "Only You and I Know" again the vocal is not that strong but the straight ahead jam is sure worth the price of admission. "We're for the Dark" is one of the strongest vocals with a very Spirit sounding groove. "Sweet Tuesday Morning " hints of the Beatles Revolver period.

Then comes a Funky version of another Dave Mason/Traffic song "Feelin' Alright? " with some sweet guitar licks and an ever improving vocal, and music that in a very Traffic like way jams on and on to our great delight!!

Okay, if you're looking for a live perfomance of "best of" material, you are going to be disappointed with this CD. However, to the Badfinger enthusiast, this disc is a must-have.
The band smokes on later-period material such as "Blind Owl", "Matted Spam" and "Constitution". A couple different readings of "Suitcase" stand out as well. This is also the only legitimate release of live Badfinger that is true to form....much preferable to the highly over-processed, partially re-recorded "Day After Day" live disc. If you are looking for an accurate representation of Badfinger at their live peak, this is it.

This live CD recorded in BBC Radio Program in London is POWERFUL.
