2010 digital remaster of the classic Badfinger album, released as part of a celebration of the best output from the Apple Records label.
Badfinger's third album, and many argue, their best, Straight Up
was first issued in December 1971. It was mainly produced by Todd Rundgren, apart four tracks which George Harrison produced including the ‘smash' single "Day After Day".
Many of the songs that appeared on this album had been worked on with Geoff Emerick prior to George and Todd Rundgren coming on board. On the previous CD release these were spread between the No Dice
and Straight Up
albums with three tracks left unissued. This 2010 edition remedies this by including those unreleased songs "Baby Please", "No Good At All", and "Sing For The Song" as bonus songs on this album along with the previously released "I'll Be The One" plus the earlier version of "Name Of The Game" and the US singles mix of "Baby Blue".
