4.0 out of 5 stars Badfinger Rock
All too sadly cut down in their prime, Badfinger were well on the way to superstardom with this classic Album from 1969. For me this album is one of their strongest (perhaps due to the close presence of Apple and Beatle personnel along with production and song writing from Paul McCartney - even if credited to messers Lennon/McCartney at the time). The bonus 12" single...

3.0 out of 5 stars Come And Get It
The Iveys have now become Badfinger. Paul McCartney has gifted them a sure fire hit in "Come And Get It". Some of the songs from The Iveys album are added, and a few more good songs are written to complete this album.
The album sounds a little dated today, but it reeks of potential, which was soon to materialise in the later "No Dice" and "Straight Up" albums...

This review is from: Magic Christian Music (1991 Reissue with bonus disc) [VINYL LP] (Audio Cassette)
All too sadly cut down in their prime, Badfinger were well on the way to superstardom with this classic Album from 1969. For me this album is one of their strongest (perhaps due to the close presence of Apple and Beatle personnel along with production and song writing from Paul McCartney - even if credited to messers Lennon/McCartney at the time). The bonus 12" single is a real treat for Apple collectors. It is just a pity that EMI/Apple at the time of release, didn't promote all the re-issue series a lot better though. It would have given the collectors such as I, much more availabilty to the releases, before deleting them once again after such a short run. In my opinion, this is certainly one of the best reissues from the original vinyls of Badfinger. Rock on Tom, Pete and Joey.

Well worth a listen

This review is from: Magic Christian Music (Audio CD)
It says something about the quality of Paul McCartney's output that he could afford to give away the song, 'Come And Get It'. Naturally, it was a big hit. 'Magic Christian Music' is, however, one of Badfinger's less interesting releases, simply because half of the tracks had already appeared on their gorgeous, but unnoticed 'Maybe Tomorrow' album as The Iveys (check that one out).

The new songs are mostly pleasant, upbeat, if lightweight, rock songs. The exceptions are the outstanding ballad, 'Carry On Till Tomorrow' and 'Walk Out In The Rain' which, though commercial, sounds like something Engelbert Humperdinck would record. This album gave Badfinger a deserved foothold but their inheritance from The Beatles was to be at its most rewarding on the next three albums.

Great tribute to an underrated band. Contains a lot of Badfinger classic compositions. Only fault on my part is that I did not buy it in it's re-mastered format

cd delivered promptly, first class service.
This CD is cracking and does full justice to the original Badfinger recording.
The sound quality is excellent and sounds amazing on my Grado SR80 headphones.
This CD is definitely recommended.
