My comments:

This was Apple's first Badfinger compilation, and though it contains all the hits and most of their well-known songs, it has been critiziced for not representing their music too well. The tracks come cronologically, which mean that some of their greatest hits turn up late ( 16 and 17 ) on the CD. Maybe this selection of songs puts more focus on the softer side of the band? The remastering has not brought a quite satisfactory sound to all tracks, especially the Ass-songs are not as clean as could be wished for. It would have been even more interesting if a few of the unreleased tracks had been included. Baby Please and Sing For The Song would both have been great bonus-tracks

My favourites:

Come And Get It, No Matter What, Midnight Caller, Without You, Take It All, The Name of The Game, Day After Day, Baby Blue, When I Say and Apple of My Eye

Other very good songs: Believe Me, Better Days and Icicles

Of 10 possible stars I would give this album: 8
