Music + Tragedy revealed in the ‘other' band from Liverpool.
12 March 1999 | by (Lucas Buck, NC) – See all my reviews

`Day after Day' is one of those songs that is always with you, no matter how many times you hear it, you never tire of it.. My only real knowledge of the British Group, Badfinger, is through this song. In fact, until I saw this documentary, I never realized they did `No Matter What', wrote the Harry Nilsson super hit, `Without You', or originally recorded the pop smash `Come and Get It', written by Paul MacCartney.

The documentary is rather one-dimensional, featuring video interviews with the remaining band members, and film and video snippets from past performances. It's a little amateurish, many gaps and holes, but informative--I wish the DVD packaging had more written chronology of the band and events, cast of characters and the like. But it contains great performance footage, and at 84 minutes, well worth the time.

If you're a fan of the British Invasion, it's a must.
