My comments:

This album is really a mystery to me. This is certainly not Badfinger. There seemed to be no need for this CD as most the Badfinger albums had been rereleased or was about to at this point. Joey gives versions of all the hits and a few of his own Badfinger songs. None of these version come anywhere near the original versions in quality. It's really hard to say much positive about this recording. I'll try though:

The material is first-class, some of the guitar parts are okay and on some tracks Joey's singing is also okay. The worst thing about this recording is the lousy sound of the drums, I'd even prefer the Day After Day drums to these. The production is cheap, the arrangements are mostly identical to the originals, which makes the whole thing even less interesting. A few new songs and better drums might have saved this project, but as it is - well I don't know

My favourites: None really

Other good tracks: Sweet Tuesday Morning. Some of the other tracks are not all that bad, if it had not been for the annoying drums.

Of 10 possible stars I would give this album: 2
