Offered for sale is a copy of the 1992 UK reissue of Badfinger’s 1972 LP, Straight Up, a 2 LP set with bonus tracks.
Badfinger was one of those bands that simply couldn’t catch a break. They had a number of hits, but never really made any money due to the double misfortune of bad management and being signed to an unstable record company, the Beatles’ Apple Records. As Apple came apart under a string of lawsuits, Badfinger’s albums went out of print and stayed there for years.
Straight Up, their 1972 effort produced by George Harrison and Todd Rundgren, may be their most fondly remembered album, containing the hits, Baby Blue, and Day After Day. The album was hard to find for years and often sold for as much as $100 before it was finally reissued in 1992. Apple issued the album in the UK as a two record set, and the second disc offered alternate versions of Money, Name of the Game, Flying, Suitcase, Perfection, and Baby Blue. The album only had one pressing and was quickly deleted.
The copy offered for sale is that 1992 reissue with the bonus tracks. Both the records and the cover are in beautiful M- condition and have likely only been played once or twice. These early 1990s reissues of all of the Apple LPs are quite difficult to find today.
A great copy of a terrific album.
