ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Badfinger featuring Tom Evans (bass and vocals) and Joey Molland (guitars, pianos, and vocals) recruited new members Tony Kaye (keyboards), Glenn Sherba (guitars), and Richard Bryans (drums) and on January 17, 1981, released their next album, “Say No More.”  Say what you will about this eclectic power-pop band, over the years they created some wonderful music although most of the members were afflicted with personal tragedies.  The loss of Pete Ham to suicide always cast a dark pall over the group as would the upcoming suicide of Tom Evans.  This band could have been one of the all-time greats but beginning with their mistreatment at Apple Records through various managers and a Yoko Ono-like wife and one can see as to why their glorious musical future that might have been instead became very dark and morose.  Still, this album is an excellent one and we hope that everyone will seek it out and add it to their collections
