This review is from: Come and Get It (Audio CD)
The reason the other reviewer of this album finds the drums "too forward in the mix" and "almost an 80s sound" is that he has been deceived into buying an album that is not exactly by Badfinger. This Hallmark collection (and several other cut-price 'best of' CDs) was recorded by just one member of Badfinger -- Joey Molland -- assisted by unknown and unnamed session musicians, sometime in the 1980s or 1990s. It attempts earnestly to duplicate the arrangements, playing and vocals of the original Badfinger tracks but was done on the cheap and, inevitably, there is a certain uniformity and soullessness about the results. It's by no means a bad album and can be interesting for comparison with the originals, but should not be confused with them. Joey Molland's Badfinger still tours today and, by all accounts, is an enjoyable nostalgia experience. More honesty about what his 'Badfinger' albums consist of wouldn't go amiss, though.
