Having the bonus tracks on a second disc at 45 rpm is a treat. All the liner notes and pics from the CD are included inside the glossy gatefold sleeve. Apparently all the early to mid 90's Badfinger Apple remasters were available this way 2 LP sets , but are quite rare. I'm glad that Apple has remastered and reissued their releases from artists other than The Beatles. JohnWDennis November 24, Report.
Obviously 45s with custom promo labels were the standard, and there were plenty of white label test pressings that were sent out in advance, but typically a promo copy of a UK-pressed LP was merely a regular stock copy with a sticker designating it as a "factory sample" atop one of the standard labels.
Apple label or not, the similarities are uncanny. Twelve tracks from these Emerick-produced sessions were completed by March, with the band rushing to finish the untitled album before reluctantly leaving for a two-month US tour that Polley had booked. Knowing that Harrison rated the band highly, Steckler asked him to work with the group.
Harrison was keen to see the band create a more mature work in the style of the Beatles' album Abbey Road , a vision that Ham shared. Molland later recalled that Harrison virtually "joined the band", by contributing on guitar during these sessions.
The band took a break from recording late in June,   as Harrison worked in Los Angeles with Indian musician Ravi Shankar , producing the soundtrack to Raga. During September , with Harrison embroiled in preparing the Bangladesh live album and concert film for release,   Apple hired Todd Rundgren to finish Badfinger's album. In addition to working with Rundgren in London on some more recent compositions, the band re-recorded two songs from the Emerick sessions: "Money", written by Evans, and Ham's "Perfection".
All these tracks appeared on the released album,  as did the new songs "Take It All", Ham's reflection on performing at the Concert for Bangladesh, and the opening track to Straight Up ; "Sometimes", by Molland; and "It's Over", Evans' tribute to the band's American fans. The other new recording was " Baby Blue ", written by Ham and likewise inspired by the recent US tour.
Rundgren worked quickly on the project,  completing the recordings in two weeks. Rundgren did the final mix for the whole album. He was upset to not receive a co-production credit for any of the Harrison-produced tracks, later telling author Peter Doggett : "[Harrison] didn't finish any of the songs, though he was perfectly willing to take the credit for the songs that I finished.
A note on the sleeve offered "special thanks" to Geoff Emerick. In America, Straight Up peaked at number 31 during a week run on Billboard ' s Top LPs ,  while it placed inside the top twenty on albums charts in Canada  and Australia.
As the follow-up single, "Baby Blue" peaked at number 14 on the Hot ,  and "Name of the Game" became another popular track on US radio. Among the differences in musical arrangements between the bonus tracks and the issued versions, "Name of the Game" features horns and orchestration not found on Harrison's later production, and "Money" and "Flying" similarly have orchestral parts, arranged by George Martin.
The final bonus track on the reissue was the US single mix of "Baby Blue", the main difference being the addition of extra reverberation on Gibbins' snare drum. The remaining bonus tracks were all from the January—March sessions with Emerick. The versions of "Suitcase", "Money", "Flying" and "Perfection" from the reissue appeared in the Apple Box Set on a separate bonus disc,  comprising twenty rare Badfinger recordings, and were also made available for digital download. On release in , Straight Up was much maligned in Rolling Stone.
Saunders derided the songwriting and production, and lamented that the group had abandoned its previous "unabashed rock and roll energy", adding: "With Straight Up , Badfinger seem to have already reached the Beatles' Revolver stage: a stultifying self-conscious artiness, a loss of previous essential virtues, and far too much general farting around. Writing in Disc and Music Echo , Caroline Boucher opined: "Badfinger's sound is that of the Beatles in the Rubber Soul era without the Beatles magic exuberance … The album, overall, doesn't have enough light and shade.
While admitting his fondness for the group's previous "Beatle rip-offs", Niester opined: "Badfinger would be better off doing twelve of the Beatles' greatest hits and doing them without all this pretension of originality. Other contemporary reviews compared Straight Up to past works by the Beatles in a more favourable light.

In my opinion straight up is by far superior, but I could agree that the rejected first version wasn't that bad. It would have been a correct album but not an improvement from No dice, which I think "Straight Up" is.
By the way, "I'll be the one" deserved more than just became an outtake, if they had worked more with the coda it could have been a hit. Its structure always reminds me of Status Quo's "Living on an island". And I think that Sing for the song could have been also a good song, I think that it has potential, but, yes, at that stage it seemed more a pub song than a rock anthem. Jjuanjo , Apr 14, The Unreleased album was recently up on youtube, but the link is gone now I believe the source was a rough mix production reel in Pete Ham ' s collection.
It had a little more clear detail, Analog warmth to it than the previous assorted "grey-releases" the past twenty - five years. I still enjoy playing the tracks occasionally, but a very crude sounding band compared to the punch of "No Dice"!! Location: Texas, Where else? Col Kepper , Sep 11, Location: USA. I prefer the re-recorded versions to the originals.
They actually had enough tracks in the can by the end of the sessions to release a double album.Badfinger - Straight Up - misprinlohagreirweb.bilviequigengsenjuchererangastparming.co Music. Skip to main content. Try Prime Hello, Sign in Account CDs & Vinyl Go Search Best Sellers Gift .
