Original Album Remastered from Original Production Masters! Half Speed Mastered at Abbey Road Studios!
Bad Companys 1974 self-titled debut album, featuring Paul Rodgers on vocals, stands as one of the most important and accomplished debut hard rock albums from the 70s. From the simple electric guitar lick on "Cant Get Enough" to the haunting bass line in "Bad Company" and the fast beats of "Movin On," Bad Company exemplified raw rock!
The album was recorded at Headley Grange with Ronnie Lane's Mobile Studio in November 1973, and was the first release of Led Zeppelin's Swan Song Records. The album reached the top of the US Billboard 200. Since then, the album has been certified five times platinum by the RIAA, and became the 46th best selling album of the 1970s. Kerrang! magazine listed the album at No. 40 among the "100 Greatest Heavy Metal Albums of All Time."
The singles "Can't Get Enough" and "Movin' On" peaked at No. 5 and No. 19 on the Billboard Hot 100, respectively. "Rock Steady," "Bad Company," and "Ready for Love" are also "classic rock" radio staples.
