A fresh start for The Iveys,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
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.
