Joe Molland This Way Up Gonzo 2014

The bad boy of Badfinger re-releases a hard to find gem!

Brent Black /

Badfinger was a band that was somewhat haunted by misfortune, it happens. Joe Molland has recently released the critically acclaimed Return To Memphis. Going deeper into the vault the long appreciated and even harder to locate This Way Up from 2002 is now being made available. Some of questioned the strength of Molland's voice and while time takes a toll on any vocalist, I call this character. The release itself includes the smoker "Three Minute Warning" and "Moonlight" which highlights the long forgotten if not ignored versatility of the Badfinger legend.

Badfinger fans should flock to this release and those that like their rock to go just a little deeper than what you are force fed on what is left of commercial radio should give this a shot as well. Badfinger may have been a rock and roll casualty but Joe Molland is a survivor!
