Expanded & Remastered w/Bonus LP of Unreleased Outtakes & Alternate Versions!
Cut at Half-Speed at Abbey Road!

The 40th Anniversary Edition of Bad Company's 1979 album, Desolation Angels features the hit single, Rock 'n' Roll Fantasy. The reissue contains newly remastered audio on two 180g black vinyl LPs along with various outtakes and alternate takes of various tracks from the album.

Formed in 1973, the British hard rock outfit Bad Company was a supergroup comprised of ex-King Crimson bassist Boz Burrell, former Mott the Hoople guitarist Mick Ralphs, and singer Paul Rodgers and drummer Simon Kirke, both previous members of Free. Powered by Rodgers' muscular vocals and Ralphs' blues-based guitar work, Bad Company was the first group signed to Led Zeppelin's Swan Song vanity label.

Desolation Angels, released in 1979, contains their major hit, "Rock 'n' Roll Fantasy".
