In recent years, Joey Molland , the last surviving original member of Badfinger , has kept the band's music and legacy alive by leading his own version of the group.  Molland also has been a fairly prolific solo artist and in February, the singer/guitarist released a new solo studio album titled Return to Memphis .  He also recently made available a pair of archival records that should interest fans too.

The first, Demos Old and New , is a compilation of rough recordings Molland made dating back to as early 1970s, during Badfinger's heyday, and as recent as 1995.  Among the tunes is version of "Sometimes," a song that appeared on Badfinger's hit 1971 album Straight Up .

The second release is a reissue of Molland's hard-to-find 2001 solo album This Way Up .  While the 13-track collection garnered little commercial attention, the CD Universe website praised it as a "mini-masterpiece" and compared it favorably to the early solo work of The Beatles ' members.

Joey Molland's Badfinger has a few upcoming concerts scheduled, while Molland also has lineup up a handful of solo acoustic appearances.  You can check out his full itinerary at BadfingerSite.com .
