  • Easily one of pop music's greatest would-be success stories and most well-known tragedies, Beatles proteges Badfinger wrote some of the definitive tunes of the power-pop era. There is considerably more to the story of Badfinger than the 18 tracks on this concise best-of would have it, yet as a primer on this most bittersweet of bands, it certainly does its job. Included here is the Paul McCartney-penned hit single "Come and Get It," the power-pop gem "No Matter What," the pensive "Day After Day," and "Without You," arguably the band's biggest hit, as it would prove to be a smash for both Harry Nilsson and, decades later, Mariah Carey. That such wonderful music didn't prevent the band members from ending up destitute and miserable only adds to the songs' emotional impact. THE VERY BEST is an excellent introduction to Badfinger, but once a taste has been had, a deeper investigation is essential.

This is a very good collection of Badfinger tracks. They had alot of very good songs.
Pete Ham and Tom Evans of Badfinger wrote 'Without You'. I prefer the Badfinger version. It is more restrained. Harry Nilson's version is great though.
Stand out tracks are:

1. No Matter What

2. Day After Day

3. Baby Blue

4. Name Of The Game

6. Come And Get It

9. Midnight Caller

12. Without You

Highly recommended.

Great album. Brought back a lot of good memories.Mariah Carey & Harry Nilsson did covers of Without You, but for nostalgic reasons I prefer the original.

Considered by many to be the best power pop band in music history, this release by Badfinger covers most of their best work throughout their solid days as the excellent band they were. Although the price is a little steep for a single CD compilation, this is actually a great buy if you are only looking to own some of the material this band put out in their heyday. Definitely recommended for the car or somewhere you might miss these guys.
