Badfinger Live on Granada TV's first programme of

thanks to Dan Matovina

In 1972, Granada Television staff producer, Muriel Young put together a six-part music series where six well-known bands were given the chance to come and perform in front of a live studio audience. Those taking part were: Badfinger, Argent, Middle Of The Road, Slade, Electric Light Orchestra (ELO), and Pentangle. The series was sadly cancelled after one series and the performances are either lost or buried in the Granada archive. One episode of the series to have remained in circulation and in reasonable broadcast condition is the performance by Badfinger...

Badfinger on Midnight Special, 1979

with: GQ, Peaches & Herb, Tasha Thomas, Elvis Costello

Notes on the taping (from guitarist Bob Schell):
"All three Badfinger selections were recorded live and aired from tape, not lipsync. Sugarman probably taped the equivalent of three or four shows that day. We were the last act to tape in a 6-8 hour session. So from the wings throughout the day, we heard other artists -- especially the headliners -- do take after retake. When our turn came, we cranked thru our three tunes fairly quickly -- one or two takes each. The engineering was dreadful. Whatever the last song was, Joey reasonably believed we should be permitted to do it one more time. He kicked it off, the band followed (as was our custom), and the stage crew promptly killed the mains. And that, as they say in Hollywood, was a wrap."
