Badfinger

Badfinger were a Welsh pop-rock band from Abertawe that released four albums on Apple Records between 1970 and 1973, followed by a pair of titles on Warner Bros. in 1974. After a period of inactivity, the band reconvened for a seventh album on Elektra and an eighth on Radio Records between 1979 and 1981. Prior to recording as Badfinger, the band gigged for five years as The Iveys, issuing one album under that name in 1969.
