A cracking collection of the first five albums from Bad Company. You know the drill - cardboard sleeves with lp designs on them, all together in a flimsy card case. Nothing else. No detail. Nothing to say these are anything other than the old Warner's remasters. However, with one of them going for a fiver a pop, this little bundle is a steal. Go Wiki for the individual album details. Nothing can be added to the individual album reviews that hasn't already been said. British classic rock at it's best, apart from "Knapsack". There's a minute and a half of valuable ear time that has gone forever.

The complete classic Bad Co. for a tenner. This runs the whole gamut from the impeccable soulful blues rock of their first two albums through the incredibly lacklustre third and fourth then closing with a wallop with Desolation Angels, a real return to form. It's a good job the poor Rough Diamonds isn't included. But no price would be too high to pay for Straight Shooter, the record that defines and kick-started the genre. Stadium rock would never sound so good again.

As I always suspected a mixed bag! First two albums excellent stuff...just as I remembered them from the old days on LP. Third and fifth albums actually better than I recall but what happened on "Burnin' Sky"? Value for money for this set unbelievable...about £1.75 per album...can't argue with that. If like me you were a fan from years gone by and your looking for a well priced nostalgia trip or to get (virtually) the whole Bad Co catalogue for next to nothing then you can't really go wrong!

A mix of radio-friendly rock anthems and mediocre, forgettable album tracks. This was really what hard rock music was all about in the early 1970s. A couple of potential hit singles scattered over the vinyl, and the rest just filled with so-so going nowhere rock. Bad Co benefitted from having a few very memorable tracks early on, most particularly on straight Shooter, and this was enough to lift them above the average line of the times.

Burning Sky stands out here as it is very different, a laid back selection of highly melodic tracks sketched together very quickly, none of them developed into hard rock anthems but left in their embryonic state. This has always been the band's high point for me, and the box set is well worth getting just for this one album. There's enough good material on the remaining albums to stitch one good selection together, so you get your money's worth.

Can I just set the record straight,this new Bad Company set is NOT called "The Complete Album Set" as written in a previous review BUT is called the "Original Album Series" of which only 5 albums from an artist or band are selected. And thank god the 5 Bad Company LPs selected here are within this box. If Rough Diamonds had been included I too would have given this set 3 Stars, as it is not included I will give this set a 5 Star Rating.........Great value

there are 5 early albums in this set and some are wonderful and others a bit patchy as the band was forced to put out more product to tour with.
all the early hits are here and the band is on top form. bad company was the follow on from free with paul rodgers on vocals.
to replace vinyl or to fill in gaps in collections these boxed sets are really good value for money, i have bought several of them, each cd is only in a cardboard cover and then in a cardboard box but this is more than adequate.
