Music Review: 'Golders Green'

Posted on

Golders Green

type:
Music
Current Status:
In Season
performer:
Pete Ham
Producers:
Rykodisc

We gave it a B+

These days there’s so much amateurishly recorded, achingly pretty pop music around that Green sounds entirely contemporary. It’s not: Ham — the frontman for power-pop favorites Badfinger — killed himself in 1975. Fortunately, he left behind a cache of demos and song fragments, and it should come as no surprise to Badfinger fans that Green (Ryko’s second volume of such material) is packed with unfinished melodic nuggets, even if several tracks are somewhat oddly augmented by contemporary musicians. B+
