Badfinger Collection Revisits Their Hits With Guest Stars

Share This:

Joey Molland, the lone surviving member of Badfinger‘s defining era, is releasing an album of many of the band’s biggest hits, recorded as collaborations with many classic rock veterans. Joining Molland on the album are such artists as Rick Wakeman on “Come and Get It” and Ian Anderson on “Day After Day.” No Matter What – Revisiting the Hits arrives March 26, 2021, via Cleopatra Records. Listen to several of the tracks below.

The stellar line-up of special guest stars on No Matter What – Revisiting the Hits also includes Todd Rundgren on “Without You,” blues legend Sonny Landreth, Mark Stein of Vanilla Fudge on the collection’s title track, and guitar virtuoso Albert Lee. See the complete track listing and participants below.

“Without You” was originally released by Badfinger in 1970 but became a global phenomenon when Harry Nilsson recorded a version in 1971. Now Rock and Roll Hall of Fame nominee and producer/songwriter/guitarist extraordinaire Rundgren offers a passionate rendering of the song.

    Cool to hear Terry Reid. Reid is maybe the greatest no-one-knows-who-he-is rock singer. I wish BCB would do a piece or two tracking his career, such as turning down the slot with Led Zeppelin but recommending this kid Robert Plant instead.
