[Acetate] Gary Walker & The Rain

Gary Walker & The Rain / 12'' Acetate (1-sided) 1969 
Gary Walker & The Rain 12'' Acetate a
DESCRIPTION:  GARY WALKER & THE RAIN - 12" ACETATE, 1-sided, 1969, USA (I don't think this album was released in USA, so perhaps this is a record company experiment ? ). Even though it has a label that shows " TEST PRESSING", this is a true metal acetate, shown by the shiny metal at the spindle hole, and also, firm, unbending vinyl, does not bend like a regular plastic record. PLEASE SEE PICTURES FOR SONGS.

Remember the songs "No Matter What," "Come and Get It" and the soundtrack from the Ringo Starr-Peter Sellers movie "The Magic Christian"? Then you remember the group Badfinger.

Badfinger dissolved amidst a snarl of red tape and legal hassles following Pete Ham's suicide in 1975. Since then, the band has sputtered but failed to get started again.

That band had original Badfinger bass player Tommy Evans and drummer Mike Gibbins. That was the end of their rather short tour, according to Reid, and Evans and Gibbins have since had a split and Evans returned to England. 

Until now. After a month of practice at a location in the New Castle area, Badfinger is back with a Delaware lad on board. Bass man Rick Reid of Wilmington, who has played with several area bands (the Voltags, the Snaps and Rockochet), will be joining original Badfinger member Joey Molland and two other musicians on the group's newest tour. 

Reid has paid his dues on the club circuit and was enthusiastic about going out on tour prior to leaving Thursday afternoon. "Joey will be on guitar and lead vocals, Steve Craiter, who has been associated with Badfinger for 10 years I guess you could call him a Badfinger -- will be on drums and vocals, Adrian Russell will be on keyboards and vocals and I'll be playing bass and singing, too," he said over the phone. 

"Everything's crazy right now. We're trying to get all the equipment together before the trucks roll in and Joey just got in late last night after being snowed in at the airport in Minnesota. But we're ready." 
Reid has promised to keep fellow Delawareans posted on the tour's progress. The Rogers Agency in Atlanta, Ga., is booking the six-week tour through the southeastern part of the country. 

"This is the Badfinger now," said Reid. "Joey has legal rights to use the name." 
Molland says the band will be playing a lot of original material. "We'll be doing 14 or 15 of my songs. The drummer's got a song, the pianist has a couple. We'll do a couple of old favorites like 'Sweet Little Rock 'n' Roller.' It's not going to be a cover act," he promised. 

"After this tour, we'll have three weeks off, then we head out West," Molland added. "The tour will probably last into March or April." 

"They'll be playing all the major cities Atlanta, Mobile, Ala., Miami, Charleston, S.C., before wrapping it up in early February," said booking agent Michael Davis. How did all this come about? 
If you stopped in on any Saturday jam sessions at Reflections in Possum Park Mall on Kirkwood Highway during November, you might have gotten a clue what was up. Molland came to New Castle to visit some friends. He got together with a couple of musicians, including Craiter and Russell, and organized a band to be called Joey Molland and the Spare Parts. He spent a couple of afternoons in Reflections trying out his new tunes on the crowd. 

"I just came back from England," Molland explained. "I'm still trying to straighten out a lawsuit from the old days I've got a lot of money tied up in it. I live here now in the U.S., I'm married and my family is in Minnesota. I'm making my home here for now because I've been rehearsing here, getting ready to go on tour." 


Andy Norris (Joey and Cathy Molland)

Joey:  Kath and I wrote that song at Clearwell Castle. I've got the lyric sheet somewhere!  It was named after the tape op (operator) at Olympic Studios, Andy Morris.  I love  that "…savin all my money…" 

Andy Morris, a 16-year-old tape-op in 1973, told me of how Bowie created ‘Diamond Dogs’ 
Andy Morris (Jan 11, 2016)
Andy Morris, now living in Northwest Portland, was 16 when he was an assistant recording engineer at London’s Olympic Studios. 

     By the time you worked with David Bowie you were a bit of a veteran, aged 16?
I was in the recording studio when the Rolling Stones recorded It’s Only Rock ’N Roll (But I Like It). I remember placing microphones in the toilets downstairs when Jagger and Keith were about to sing the overdubs. I also worked with Badfinger and The Pretty Things, but Diamond Dogs was the album I worked on the most. 

Badfinger performs "Andy Norris" at the Bombay Bicycle Club in Memphis, TN sometime in 1987 (anybody have the exact date?). The band was Joey Molland, Randy Anderson, Mark Healey, and Jerry Shirley. Camera work by Mike Barnett.

at Good Ole Days in Atlanta GA sometime in 88/89 (90/91?). Joey Molland, Mark Healey, Michael Lichey and John Richar​dson.

He (Tom Evans) told me (Scott Jensen?) this was his answer to Pete's Name of the Game, and that he was basically talking to Pete.
