Badfinger - Badfinger - Expanded CD $18.99
Real Gone Music, together with Badfinger biographer Dan Matovina, is taking a fresh look at Badfinger's brilliant but ill-fated Warner Bros. #albums, Badfinger and Wish You Were Here. Everything seemed rosy when, upon conclusion of their contract with Apple, Badfinger signed a new deal with Warner Bros. #in 1973 for a big advance, but right away things went south as the label rushed the band into the studio and ended up releasing Badfinger at about the same time as Apple released the band's last record for the label. Not to mention Warner Bros. Rejected the band's title for the record, For Love or Money, leaving the record without any title at all. Our Expanded Edition features the unreleased song "Love My Lady," plus nine more outtakes from the album sessions; it's the first time the original album's been remastered (by Matovina from the original master tapes) since its maiden release on CD, while Matovina's notes include fresh quotes from original producer Chris Thomas!
Badfinger - Wish You Were Here CD $18.99
Recorded by Chris Thomas at the Caribou Ranch studio in Colorado and George Martin's AIR studio in London, 1975's Wish You Were Here stands as Badfinger's most cohesive and powerful artistic statement, with stellar contributions by all four of the band's songwriters. It's an album without a weak track, so it's hard to single out any songs, but Ham's "Dennis," Molland's "Love Time," and Evans' "King of the Load" might take the honors. For this Expanded Edition (which offers a new remastering of the album for the first time since it was initially released on CD), we've unearthed an unreleased song ("Queen of Darkness"), and uncorked eight new remixes that highlight many un-used vocals and novel instrumental arrangements. Matovina's notes include exclusive quotes from original producer Chris Thomas. The last and best record with the original line-up, now fully unveiled!

Anthony would later reflect "I'd become a stranger to the world of guitars and all my lovely stringed instruments would often look at me with mournful reproach! There was a gap in my keyboard-based TV work and so I launched myself on the neglected fretted fraternity, improvising for 2 - 3 hours on each in a state of great excitement but chronic rustiness. Following two aborted attempts at recording the sixty-one pieces of music, recording finally began in earnest in 2004. The recordings saw Anthony utilize 6-string guitar, 10-string guitar, 12-string guitar, Cittern, Bouzouki, Charrango and Mandolin to great effect. Issued the following year, Field Day received a warm response from Anthony Phillips aficionados upon its release. With this new edition, Anthony has revisited the recordings, remastering the original stereo mixes and has created a 5. 1 Surround sound mix with engineer James Collins. The results bring a new life to the compositions and a much loved album. This digipack edition includes a booklet with new essay by Jonathan Dann and comments from Anthony Phillips.
