***********
Maybe Tomorrow was the only album released by The Iveys (who later called themselves Badfinger). It was issued in 1969 on the Apple label in Japan, West Germany and Italy. The scheduled release of the album in the U.S. and UK at that time was halted without explanation. Many reasons for halting the album have been suggested by the band and Apple employees, but the most common suspicion held by all parties is that Apple's newly-hired president, Allen Klein, had stopped all non-Beatle releases until he could examine the company's finances (which were in disarray at the time).The Iveys were a successful live act on the London circuit when they attracted the attention of Apple employee Mal Evans in early 1968. It was through Evans' perseverance that demonstration recordings made by the group were presented to The Beatles (Apple's presidents). Although the band was initially waived by Paul McCartney and John Lennon, the former relented as more impressive Iveys tapes were brought in by Evans.The group signed with Apple in April 1968 and began making recordings immediately upon their arrival. With the incentive of releasing a worthwhile single, the band was not focused on compiling an LP. Maybe Tomorrow was therefore culled from various studio recordings the group made during a 12-month period. The songs on the LP vary widely from pop, rock, and psychedelic. With few exceptions, they do not resemble the sound Badfinger would later become known for. The title track was released as an Apple single in 1968 and enjoyed limited success in regional markets.Due to Badfinger's subsequent fame and the album's limited release, Maybe Tomorrow became an expensive collectible for many years, often earning between $200 and $400 US dollars for a single used copy. Although a 1990s re-release of the album on CD format curbed demand for the original album, the CD itself became collectible because of its limited run.
