Comments:There are too many outstanding and important Badfinger outtakes and alternate track listings to list. Maybe we can start a file sharing service. Badfinger is the most overlooked band in rock history. We need to keep Pete and Tommy's memories alive. I am going to quote Ken Sharp who captured exactly what I want to say about Pete Ham:
"There exists a deep and rich spiritual core that distinctly characterized Pete's work, further uniting artist and listener. Never afraid of revealing his most personal feelings in his music, Pete´s songs ring out like a vivid and detailed commentary of his life; through the heartbreak and the triumph, the listener is rewarded with an alternately bittersweet and joyous musical sound-track. One must not forget the magnificence of Pete Ham, the musician. Indeed, Pete was criminally underrated as a guitarist. It is almost incomprehensible to realize that he was only twentyseven when he left this mortal coil. "
You have made us feel good, Pete. Thank you for all the inspiring, uplifting music you've given us, which we honor now, and which will be cherished for generations to come. Bless you for sharing your joy and pain, revealing the depths of your soul, and for being such a treasured mu-sical companion. And thank you for being such a good friend to so many. May you rest in peace, my friend.
