About this copy: This copy of Ass is a 1973 Japanese pressing on the Apple label.

The cover is VG, with slight edge and corner wear, but with quite a bit of foxing.  The obi is VG++, with a crease across the center.

The custom inner sleeve is M- with no splits.  The 8 page lyric booklet is M-.

The disc is VG++ on side one with a couple of very faint inaudible hairlines.  Side two is M- with a few spindle marks on the labels, but no marks on the vinyl.  It’s a clean disc that has had little play.

A nice copy of a scarce Badfinger LP, and the only copy we’ve ever had for sale.

Background: Released in 1973, Ass was the fourth album by Badfinger, and the band’s final album for Apple Records.

The album reached #122 on the U.S. album chart. gave Ass this review:

Badfinger produced the sessions for the Straight Up sequel themselves, abandoning its lush production for a live, hard-rocking sound. Apple wasn’t keen on the record, insisting that it be remixed, then, once it was remixed, refusing to release it, so the band jumped ship to Warner Bros. in the fall of 1973. Just after Badfinger released their debut single for the label and were prepping a new album, Apple sprung Ass on the world. …It wasn’t fated to be a great album, and it wound up being the weakest thing the original band cut.
