    This was Badfinger’s second album which made its debut in November 1970 and was the first to include Joey Molland in the line-up. It is largely remembered because it contains the hit single “No Matter What” as well as “Without You” – a song not released as a single by the group but later covered with enormous success by Harry Nilsson and later still by Mariah Carey. No Dice was mainly produced by ex-Beatles engineer, Geoff Emerick apart from “No Matter What” and ”Believe Me” for which Mal Evans takes the production credit. The previous CD released included five bonus cuts. We also have five but they are different: “ I Can’t Take It “ is a previously unreleased extended version, “Without You” is a studio demo of the song much closer to Harry Nilsson’s cover than the version heard earlier on the disc. “Photograph (AKA Friends Are Hard To Find)” is a different version to that which was a bonus track last time around, “Believe Me” is a lovely previously unreleased alternative version, and the studio demo version “No Matter What” closes the album. There are two digital download exclusives, a previously unreleased instrumental version of “Love Me Do” and a previously unreleased version of “Get Down”.

    Rolling Stone (12/2/70, p.52) - "...One of the best records of the year....great rockers...and gorgeously done pop rock and roll....Don't miss them..."
    Uncut (p.120) - 3 stars out of 5 - "[B]y NO DICE they hit their stride..."
    Record Collector (magazine) (p.90) - "The real Badfinger stood up on NO DICE, a more consistent yet maybe even more Beatles-esque affair."

    Discovered by Paul McCartney and signed to the Beatles' Apple Records, Badfinger was, for many fans, the next best thing to the Fab Four. But even if the band did start as a Beatles wannabe, it eventually forged a successful power-pop style of its own. NO DICE, Badfinger's second album, exhibits a confident band with strong, melodic pop songs and a diminishing Beatles influence. Bandleader Pete Ham, with his distinctively tense vocals and guitar lines, carries the band through well-constructed melodies, well-conceived harmonies, and edgy instrumentals.
    The track list includes a few genuine killers. "No Matter What," a compact gem that recalls the melodic innocence of the early Beatles, may be the band's apex. "Without You" is the band's original version of a quirky power ballad that Harry Nilsson would soon turn into a pop smash. The five extra tracks included with this reissue offer a variety of treats. The fiery "Get Down" displays a hard, bluesy edge and searing lead guitar, while "Friends Are Hard to Find" is all tight, gentle harmonies. These are welcome additions to Badfinger's great, underrated catalog.
