More Bad Company deluxe editions

This May Rhino continue their Bad Company archival reissues with newly remastered deluxe editions of 1976’s Run With The Pack and its follow up, 1977’s Burnin’ Sky.

Both albums will be issued as two-CD sets with a bonus disc of largely unreleased material and additionally two-LP vinyl packages will also be available, which offer a selection of the same bonus material.

The Run With The Pack expanded reissue includes unreleased early mixes of Honey Child and Simple Man, an extended version of the title track and Let There Be Love a previously unreleased outtake from the recording sessions.

Burnin’ Sky was recorded in Château d’Hérouville, in France (Bowie recorded Low their later that same year) and the new two-CD deluxe edition features unreleased versions of most of the album tracks along with Unfinished Story, which despite the title was a completed song, never released.

Both CD and vinyl sets of Run With The Pack and Burnin’ Sky will be released on 26 May 2017.

    Excellent. Had no idea they were doing any deluxe releases beyond the first two. Hoping this means they’ll release deluxe editions for the final two Rodgers albums as well.

  2. Gareth says:

    Hoping and praying we’ll get a deluxe ‘Fame and Fortune’ but I suspect i’m in a very small minority with that one. The Brian Howe era was really good (albeit closer to Foreigner than the 70’s Bad Company).

    • peter chrisp says:

      Gareth i must admit i don’t mind the Brian Howe era of Bad Co especially No Smoke Without Fire and a fave Holy Water and for memory there was another one too but very radio friendly How About That and a live album too, haven’t heard that one in ages must go revisit Fame & Fortune

  3. Friso Pas says:

    I really liked the first two deluxe editions. I only had a compilation up ’til that point. Hopefully these albums are good too. I’m not familiar with them yet.

  4. TwentySmallCigars says:

    Awesome surprise and I’ve pre-ordered both.

    I thought the previous two were very well done and as vikerii mentioned above, I’m hoping Desolation Angels and Rough Diamonds get the same treatment.

    To each his own of course, but once Paul Rodgers left, that was the end of Bad Company for me.

  5. Greek geek says:

    Paul, you have made my day. If these two are as good as the first two, I will be the happiest man on the planet. Thanks, thanks, and thanks again!!!

  6. Charles K. says:

    Great news, I didn’t think these were going to continue. Burning Sky is their masterpiece, it deserves this treatment.

  7. Galley says:

    Has there always been a human baby suckling along with the wolf pups on that album cover?

  8. madmickeyt says:

    i prefer live material, preferably a full gig and not just bits and peices, to alternative takes. havent bought the first 2 deluxes but have got remastered cds which sound fine.

  9. graeme_ewan@yahoo.co.uk says:

    anyone in the UK ordered from amazon canada? whats the postage/import charge implications?
    ( i ordered something from amazon.it, guess what? it came from amazon uk. weird!!)

    • Gerry says:

      I recently received an album from the USA, the import tax was a few £ , its the collection charge that can be a hard pill to swallow. Royal Mail won’t deliver the item, they leave a card telling you that you have to pay the import tax and an £8 charge for them to collect it, which you have to pay before getting your item.

  10. james johnson says:

    Paul
    Thanks very much for the heads up. This is going to be awesome. I wonder if we can expect the next 2 LPs as well. I picked up the 1st 2 @ best buy for a super cheap price

    What a great surprise after their recent debut album Straight Shooter and the not so long ago a killer live album it had to happen tha is excellent news

  12. peter chrisp says:

    Greek greek could not agree more that is great news an unexpected 2 gems and on the same day cannot get any better than that, thanks Paul!

  13. Wayne Klein says:

    Sales for the previous sets must have been pretty good to put this out. I’m looking forward to “Desolation Angels” myself.

  14. Skippy O'Nasica says:

    Didn’t buy the deluxe edition of the first album as it had zero unreleased songs. Demos & alternate versions alone aren’t enough of an enticement I’m afraid. Did buy the second album for the two unreleased songs. And since each of these upcoming reissues will contain one unreleased song, I guess I’m in.

    Still, somewhat disappointing that the band are being parsimonious with the unreleased material. “Straight Shooter” omitted at least one unreleased number that is in the vaults (“Highway Robber”), possibly more. Now “Run With The Pack” skips Bad Co’s studio version of “The Stealer” (which was announced for then pulled from the “Rock ‘n’ Roll Fantasy” compilation in 2015) and who knows what else. http://www.musictap.net/2015/08/24/new-bad-company-collection-rock-and-roll-fantasy-planned-for-september/

    If after 40 years they aren’t prepared to release truly definitive editions, guess it’s not going to happen.

  15. madmickeyt says:

    remember the Albuquerque live cd that was pulled? i believe that was because Paul Rodgers was not happy with the quality of it (even though it is great, I see what he means). That might explain certain other stuff never seeing the light of day. If it is rough, ie TOO rough, it should probably stay unreleased, even for avid collectors, but the band do not always know best and can sometimes be over-picky!

  16. Al Rearick says:

    Isn’t “Smokin’ 45” a SKY-era b-side? Surprised that isn’t included if so.

  17. Rob Deighton says:

    I wonder how long the version of ““Run With The Pack” – Extended Version, Alternative Vocal” will be. Possibly my favourite BC track. That outro is stellar.

  18. Duane says:

    Is there any serious talk about releasing “Desolation Angels” as a reissue? That would be AWESOME!
