It's a winner! Badfingers best

"Highlights of this great groups 4th album for Apple are...
Apple of My Eye - The late Pete Hams bitter farewell song to Apple
Winner - Joey Mollands open letter to John Lennon who often critisized the band, Joeys best song
Blind Owl, Constitution double shot from the underrated bass player singer writer late great Tom Evans
Cowboy - even the drummer Mike Gibbons writes songs, amazing group
Timeless - Pete Hams best song, unfortunately not many have ever heard it, should have been a hit.
Needing a remaster

"I'm assuming this is a straight reissue of the import that was released on Apple in the '90s. If so, I have that import, and it was really poorly remastered. I have the original LP released in 1973. That LP was poorly remastered, but sounds eons better than the Apple CD. I wish that someone would get hold of the original multitracks (if they still exist) and give this album the sound it deserves. It still does not have the quality of songs or performance that Straight Up (or No Dice, for that matter) has, but if the sound was improved it would be a solid 4 star album. Until then, you must have it if you are a Badfinger fan (it has a handful of really great songs), but be forewarned the sound just isn't up to snuff."
Essential for Badfinger fans - but non-fans should start els

"This album is not the dog that many would have you believe. Blind Owl, The Winner, and Constitution are great rockers. Apple of My Eye and I Can Love You are very decent ballads. Cowboy is a goof, but quite listenable. Timeless is a nice song with both quiet and louder elements. Badfinger fans will undoubtedly find much to enjoy here, but those who are unfamiliar with the band would be better to start off with No Dice and Straight Up."
