Background history (written in December, 2011):
Dan Matovina has informed me that there will be a new Badfinger Greatest Hits CD release titled "Timeless - The Musical Legacy Of Badfinger". The CD is planned to have 16 tracks. There will be one Warner Brothers track and an Elektra Records track. The titles were decided and confirmed by EMI and Apple staff. All of the mastering for the new CD compilation will be identical to the 2010 Apple CD reissue mastering. There will be no new or previously-unreleased tracks included in this new release. All of the publishing will now be accurately represented, as the recent reissue CDs did not acknowledge the U.S. publishing.






 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Background history (December 05, 2013 update):
Universal (the new owners of EMI) have now put out the once-cancelled compilation of Badfinger songs that uses the 2010 remastered versions. Apple Corps (the master license owner) and Universal (the licensee) were inspired by Baby Blue's resurgence via Breaking Bad. A sticker hyping the song appears on the plastic covering. This compilation uses the song's U.S. single mix with the heavy reverb on the snare drum that was used in the show. Again, there are no new tracks on this CD, however, the publishing credits for all the songs are accurate for the first time (including Kobalt Music for the U.S. territory for Pete Ham & Tom Evans). You will find the current compilation "The Very Best Of Badfinger" to be cut out (discontinued), but, of course, it will linger around, still able to be purchased.
