    Sounds like he's trying to revisit Badfinger's power pop history.

    I don't care for him personally and that taints the music for me, which doesn't sound like anything special anyway.

    Shame this isn’t on LP, to take advantage of that gorgeous Julian Lennon cover shot...

    Not surprisingly, this has the Mark Hudson sound all over it. Not bad.

    My CD arrived (early!) from Omniore. Of course, it came this afternoon while I am working so I won't be able to listen today. Anyone else get a copy?

    Did you support "Kickstarter" campaign last Fall?

    I'd heard that mailings to anyone that was contributing to "Kickstarter" campaign would be seeing items arrive around end of September, not sure if CD's were included until October.

    Will be playing tracks from Be True To Yourself the new solo release soon
    from Badfinger's Joey Molland.

    The record features guest appearances from The Monkees’ Mickey Dolenz, Julian Lennon and former Wings drummer Steve Holley and recalls Molland’s best work with Badfinger while sounding thoroughly contemporary. We’ll hear music from that release as well as selections from Julian Lennon’s 1998 album, Photograph Smile.

    On the last song now...all I can say is wow. I am impressed! Last time I saw Joey, his voice was a little gruff, but not here. Mark Hudson's production reminds me of the work he did with Ringo. But the songs, all collaborations between Joey and Mark are first rate. And the backing vocals are wonderful. Love hearing Julian Lennon harmonizing with Joey. And fans of the Monkees should like "Shine" which has great backing vocals by Mickey Dolenz, Jason Scheff and Mark. I don't like making judgements about albums based on one listening, but I'll be playing this one a lot. It's very guitar oriented with a lot of little flourishes (even a bit of sitar on one song). There is even a very brief but obvious nod to "No Matter What" on one song.
