Sounds like the Badfinger boys heard The Raspberries album Starting Over and said "You want to hear the ultimate power pop album? That's what we'll give you!" Beginning with the opening track, "Just a Chance" all the way through "Meanwhile Back at the Ranch/Should I Smoke", Wish You Were Here does - in fact- smoke. Consistently superb throughout.
Unfortunately, Warner Brothers pulled the album from store shelves seven weeks later due to a lawsuit that would be yet sad chapter in Badfinger's star crossed story.
