      The music they made as a band is still some of the finest pop ever recorded, but the way they ended up in death and destruction remains one of the horrors of the music business. Discovered by The Beatles and signed to Apple Records way back during the heyday of the late ‘60s, Badfinger featured four supremely talented individuals who could write music, sing, perform and basically hold their own with the best of them. It’s still harrowing to think that the group’s best singer-songwriters, Pete Ham and Tom Evans, each took their own lives following years of turmoil and financial pressures. Badfinger albums such as No Dice and Straight Up are still revered by pop fans worldwide and during their prime the band was incredibly prolific. Just months before Pete Ham took his own life, Badfinger completed their Head First album in December, 1974. The album was supposed to come out on Warner Brothers records, but long story short, a court suit resulted in Warners dropping the group crushing the band as a result. Released on U.K.-based Snapper Music, the golden Head First can finally be heard in all it’s glory complete with a bonus disc of vital demo tracks retrofitted with detailed liner notes by Badfinger expert Dan Matovina.

        This release needs a proper vinyl issue. Actually, all of Badfinger's albums should be reissued on vinyl and the The Iveys album.
