Blow-dried and true

The Iveys   “Maybe Tomorrow” b/w “And Her Daddy’s A Millionaire” on Apple Records (1969)

Mal Evans (the longtime “roadie” for The Beatles and an employee of their Apple Records label) took up The Ivys cause and they were finally signed on 23 July 1968, as the first non-Beatle recording artists for the Apple record company.   “Maybe Tomorrow” (a Tom Evans song and the Iveys first single) was released worldwide late in 1968.   It reached the Top Ten in a number of European countries (#1 in Holland) and Japan, but only climbed to #67 in the U.S. and failed to chart in the U.K.   In October 1969, while the release of “Come and Get It” pending, the band and Apple Records agreed that a name change was now critical. “The Iveys” were still sometimes confused with “The Ivy League”, and the name was considered too trite for the current music scene. After much debate, the group changed their name to Badfinger. Other suggestions had included: “The Glass Onion,” “The Prix”, and “The Cagneys” from John Lennon, and “Home” by Paul McCartney. The name Badfinger had been suggested by Apple’s Neil Aspinall as a reference to “Bad Finger Boogie”, an early working title of Lennon/McCartney’s “With a Little Help from my Friends”, the idea alleged by Neil Aspinall that Lennon had composed the melody on a piano using only one finger, after having hurt his forefinger.
