S6E264 - Badfinger 'Straight Up' with Rich Ulloa
Play • 1 hr 15 min

It's hard to discuss British rock band Badfinger and NOT focus on the tragic details of their too-short career. This week's guest, legendary Miami music maven Rich Ulloa (Yesterday & Today Records, Y&T Music), doesn't shy away from the dark parts, but much prefers to focus on the wonderful music these four lads from Swansea gifted the world. Their 1971 release 'Straight Up' is as fine an example of lush, meticulously recorded and thrillingly played power-pop as you're ever likely to find.
