Bad Company Swan Song Years Box Set Announced
(hennemusic) Bad Company will release a new box set, "The Swan Song Years 1974-1982", on August 2. The 6CD package includes every studio album the group released on Led Zeppelin's record label during the era, and delivers newly-remastered versions of 1979's "Desolation Angels" and 1982's "Rough Diamonds" that are making their debut as part of this set.
The other albums included in the collection are: "Bad Company" (1974), "Straight Shooter" (1975), "Run With The Pack" (1976) and "Burnin' Sky" (1977).
In 1973, members of three popular bands came together to form Bad Company: singer Paul Rodgers and drummer Simon Kirke of Free; Mick Ralphs of Mott The Hoople, and King Crimson bassist Boz Burrell; that same year, Bad Company was the first band signed to Led Zeppelin's new record label, Swan Song.
The band's 1974 debut, "Bad Company", went to No. 1 in America and was certified 5x platinum on the strength of future-radio staples like "Can't Get Enough," "Rock Steady" and "Movin' On." The multi-platinum streak continued a year later with "Straight Shooter", which hit 3x platinum with tracks like "Good Lovin' Gone Bad," "Shooting Star" and "Feel Like Makin' Love." Read more here.
