If Badfinger 's debut album Magic Christian Badfinger - Magic Christian Music sounds patchy, there's a reason why: It was assembled from three different sources. Although the title suggests that the record is a soundtrack to The Magic Christian it isn't. It's a hodgepodge, containing the group's three contributions to the film, six highlights from the band's pre- Badfinger album Maybe Tomorrow released when they were known as the Iveysan alternate take from Maybe Tomorrowand four new songs.
It's little wonder that it doesn't hold together, winding up as a document of Badfinger 's unharnessed potential. Since Badfinger - Magic Christian Music breakthrough hit "Come and Get It" was written by Paul McCartneyBadfinger was dogged by comparisons to the Beatles but they were hardly copyists. Elements of the Holliesthe Kinksand very mild psychedelia are Badfinger - Magic Christian Music throughout Magic Christian Musicall part of the band's search for their own voice.
Apart from the lovely pop tune "Dear Angie" and Tom Evans ' stately, yearning "Maybe Tomorrow," the Iveys numbers aren't particularly distinguished pop but they are, by and large, pleasant period pieces. On the newer material, Badfinger sounds stronger and their craftsmanship surfaces. They're two sides of the same coin - dreamy post-psych pop tunes driven by strong hooks and harmonies. They might not always deliver on that promise on Magic Christian Musicbut with its appealing melodies, lite psychedelic flourishes and, yes, Beatles que harmonies, it's an enjoyable artifact of its time.
