Bad Company and Straight Shooter: 2CD and 2LP deluxe editions

badco

Bad Company have recently found the original multi-track tapes from their first two albums and in the process discovered previously unreleased tracks, takes, and mixes from those sessions which form the bonus material on brand new deluxe editions.

Bad Company (1974) and Straight Shooter (1975) have been remastered using the original tapes to create new Deluxe Editions. The two-CD versions include all of the newly discovered bonus tracks, while their 180-gram vinyl counterparts offer as much bonus material as they can fit on a second vinyl record.

The eponymous debut album in deluxe form features the single edit of Can’t Get Enough, b-sides Little Miss Fortune and Easy On My Soul as well as eight previously unreleased recordings such as the demo for The Way I Choose, and an unedited version of Superstar Woman.

Follow up, Straight Shooter (1975) goes even further with 13 previously unreleased tracks and and the b-side Whiskey Bottle. The bonus material here includes a stripped-down version of Shooting Star, and two tracks never released; See The Sunlight and All Night Long.

Bad Company and Straight Shooter deluxe editions are released on 7 April 2015.

    Two really decent albums from Rodgers and chums – I will throw them in to a mega reorder with the 3 Specials discs unless they surface at amazon.com

  2. Phil Cohen says:

    But the price is so low on Amazon.co.uk, and remember, the price will be lowered for people outside the UK.

    • Phil Cohen says:

      Unfortunately, Amazon.co.uk just increased the price from £10.99 to £13.99. I’ll just hold off for a while and see if there will be a U.S.A. release. There’s plenty of other releases by other artists that I can preorder.

  3. peter chrisp says:

    Good Company, i must admit although Free had extras on their albums,
    it was definitely going through my mind and now finally the end result,
    you have summed it up well “Can’t Get Enough” looking forward to both of them in early April

  4. Paul Jaspers says:

    Does anyone know why Amazon UK is not selling these at the moment and has them ‘Under review’ ?
