Album of the Day
While Led Zeppelin cut some of the greatest records in history, the band also helped launch other hitmakers through its label, Swan Song. Among those was U.K. supergroup Bad Company, formed by ex-members of Free, King Crimson and Mott The Hoople. Bad Company's eponymous debut must have had Page and Plant looking over their shoulders as the set soared to No.1 on the chart on its way to platinum sales status. Of the eight tracks on the album, more than half would spend years in rotation on AOR and classic rock radio - “Rock Steady,” “Ready For Love,” “Movin’ On,” the title song and “Can’t Get Enough,” which hit #1 on the Cashbox singles on this day in 1974. Surely the quartet's finest hour, BAD COMPANY remains at the pinnacle of blues-based hard rock.
