Badfinger - I don't know if I can start a flood of Badfinger recordings, but I'd sure like to. Can anyone help? A few months ago I made a few comments about offering some Badfinger, & I received some PM's, so here they come.

I'm going to be offering some AUD sourced recordings that probably are just not that good when considering quality. The quality of most of these AUD recordings is just not up to todays par.

One of the big reasons for me offering Badfinger is because you just don't see enough of their recordings around these parts. So I'm also hoping to upgrade my own Badfinger recordings & hoping to increase my collection & enjoy their music further.

Quite a few of my Badfinger tapes have come from the old LP bootlegs, & I will note that where I know. So none of my old cassette tapes are from the CD bootlegs, unless specified.

Also I have been able to find some great Badfinger information on the internet at these following sites:

.... these sites show proof of other available recordings, so let's find them.

Most of the commonly traded quality Badfinger recordings you find are on the "The Ultimate Stereo Live Album, Volumes I & II" bootleg. And commonly the early Iveys material is offered.
Here are some Badfinger related recordings that have been offered here recently (many thanks to those uploaders):
