Album of the Day
Bad Company (Deluxe)
Singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Paul Rodgers, drummer Simon Kirke (both from Free), guitarist/songwriter Mick Ralphs (from Mott The Hoople) and bassist Boz Burrell (from King Crimson) became one of the most successful supergroups of the 1970 when they joined forces as Bad Company. Signing with Led Zeppelin's Swan Song label, the quartet's self-titled debut soared to No.1 on the U.S. chart on this day in 1974. Of the eight originals 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 the #5 hit “Can’t Get Enough.” The 5x platinum BAD COMPANY remains a milestone of blues-based hard rock, and Rhino's Deluxe Edition of the album features remastered sound from the original multi-tracks and a bonus disc of B-sides, demo and alternate versions.
