I know that a perfect album like "Wish You Were Here" ought not be touched upon. I have done anyway, well aware that this alternate running order + one additional track probably wonīt make it a better album. I have made these "new" albums for my own pleasure, and I must say that I feel that especially "No Dice" , "Ass" and my own "invention" "Back on the Airwaves No More" come out as very strong albums.
I have chosen to leave out a "Magic Christian Music" album as half of the songs had already been released on the Iveys album. The songs recorded after Ron Griffiths had left ( except "Come and Get It" ) have the "Badfinger-feel" that most Iveys recordings lack. These late 1969 recordings might just as well have been used for "No Dice"
I have chosen 12 tracks as standard; except for "Maybe Tomorrow" as many of the Iveys recordings are relatively short. I have used the tracklisting for "Straight Up" as a model for best possible running order. Most popular songs on positions 2, 9, 6 and 1. The long tracks are often put as last songs on either "side 1" or "side 2". Anyway here they are:
|Alternate Badfinger Albums|
|Maybe Tomorrow||No Dice||Straight Up|
|Ass||For Love or Money||Wish You Were Here|
|Head First||No More Back on the Airwaves||Great Lost Outtakes|
