Badfinger ‎- Piano Red 

Tommy and Mike were getting pissed off, quite justifiably in my opinion, at having this stranger trying to get them to play a style for which they had no affinity at all, but Pete Ham wanted to get it, so I found myself recording the bass and guitar parts, at the insistence of him and Bill Collins. .... so I overdubbed the parts as expediently as possible and got out of there.

このpiano、Badfinger が一緒に生活していた頃 Bill Collins の家にあったものらしい。たぶん Pete が一番使っていたんだろうなぁ。

The Iveys ( Badfinger ) Live June 7, 1966 - buy CD

Live in Neath, S. Wales, June 7, 1966 (link below)

The legendary show that The Iveys/Badfinger future manager, Bill Collins taped in their hometown to study and decide if the band was ready for a professional career based in London, England.

Mightily impressed, Collins convinced the young men's parents to let them give up apprenticeships to pursue their dreams.

Pete Ham, Ron Griffiths, David Jenkins and Mike Gibbins comprise of this excellent band, of which you will hear some samples here. Just teenagers at the time, except for David, who was 20, the band is super-tight and on fire. 

They were destined to become the legendary Badfinger ! 

If this project sells all of it's limited edition, more CDs of other music should be in line for fans to study the origins of Badfinger. That would be the musical legacy of The Iveys, from 1966-69.

Thanks to Ron Griffths of The Iveys for setting this project in motion.

The Kinks - Dead End Street (1966) 
Kinks の事務所のロードマネージャーをしていた Bill Collins ということもあり、このビデオに登場する棺が当時 Iveys の4人が住んでいた Collins の家に保管されていた。その棺に白塗りした Mike Gibbins が入り、他の3人が映像のような黒い衣装で棺を担いで、現在でいえばケンタッキーのような近所の店まで行き、店の中で Mike を棺から出し、4人で注文したことがあったらしい。食べ終わったらまた Mike は棺に入り、来た時のように3人で棺を担いで帰ったそうだ。将来、Badfinger のドラマが作られる時に使えるシーンだな。
