$12.95 each for their first Warners LP, "Badfinger," and the followup album "Wish You Were Here."

Even if you're a long-time Badfinger fan, it's quite possible that you've never heard these hard-to-find albums. Both of them have marvelous songs, even though never had a hit single.

In addition, the first album released under the Badfinger name, "Magic Christian Music" is apparently available for $16.98. (this has a bunch of songs from the first Ivey's album, plus some new songs like the title track). Finally, the Joey Molland/Tom Evans album released under the Badfinger name, "Airwaves" is also available for $13.95.

The also have some Hollies releases:

For $14.95, they have a "two-fer" CD of the first two Hollies albums on one CD ("Stay With The Hollies" and the much better album "In The Hollies Style"). This is a must-have for any fan who doesn't already have the two albums.

And, here's a bunch of other Hollies albums, including "What Goes Around," "Reunion" (the 1983 concert release), "The Long Road" box set (at $74.96, which is a pretty good price), the three "Abbey Road" discs sold together for $21.98 (another great price), and the new compilation release "On A Carousel."

I've bought from these guys before, with no problems. In the US, shipping is free on orders over $50.

The company can be reached via e-mail at

I dug around their website, and below is a copy/paste of the info regarding International shipping. Alas, the steep price for international shipping makes some of the bargains listed above less appealing to our friends across the pond.

We have no jurisdiction over these expenses and cannot determine what they may be.

A street address is required for all international shipments. Delivery to P.O. Boxes is available.

Canadian Exception: Orders to Canada are sent via the USPS at $7.95. U.S. funds only.

The two Warners Badfinger albums are quite superb....BUT Warners made a mistake of issuing a very odd mix of Joey's song "Love is Easy" as the single from the first 1974 album...with the drums put way out infront....Joey Molland himself was none too happy re this....the single was unsuccessful, just as the band really needed a big hit after the collapse of Apple into legal problems...

Sorry, The original Iveys / Badfinger Bass guitarist vocalist was Ron Griffiths....NOT Rod Evans (he was the original Lead Vocalist with Deep Purple ! ) - I muddled the two up as both were ousted from their respective bands.....!

Joey Molland has kept Badfinger's flag flying over the years...and recorded some fine solo material...recently of course uniting with old schoolchum and longtime pal Terry Sylvester for live shows...


I like to think that I can claim some small amount of credit for Joey and Terry working together in recent years.

At one of Joey's shows in Cincinnati around seven years ago or so, I chatted with him afterward - Joey was really good about that, and hung around after his show for almost an hour shooting the breeze with fans. I knew of course that Joey was from Liverpool as was Terry, and figured that they were pretty close to the same age. I informed Joey that Terry was a solo performer in Canada in the Toronto area, and Joey seemed quite pleased to hear that Terry was both in North American and still performing professionally. I scribbled down Terry's website address for Joey (it's pretty easy to remember, after all, isn't it?), and I was pretty sure that Joey was going to try and contact Terry.

My other comment to Joey was that "Magazine Woman" belonged in his live act. He was very surprised that anyone actually remembered that song! Alas, when I saw Molland a couple of years later, that great psychodelic song was still off the playlist.
