Box of Rain

Apple Records Box Set (2010) 17CD [16-44]

Great collection of Apple artists. Badfinger, James Taylor, Billy Preston, Mary Hopkin, Doris Troy are just some of the artists that appear here. The albums were remastered in 2010. The Badfinger albums sound better than the ones released in the early 1990s. Their last last Apple release, Ass, wasn’t even released on CD in America but is available now. James Taylor’s debut is worth hearing. Even though he was only 20 years old when he recorded this album, you can hear the voice of a mature songwriter for which he would become during the following decade.
