5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful collection of timeless classics 12 Sep 2003
Format:Audio CD
This collection of songs have been hand picked, and give us an excellect insight into the history of the bands inspirational brilliance. Disc 1 giving us the best of the best albums ('Bad Company' and 'Straight Shooter') a collection of some great songs such as "Can't Get Enough" "Bad Company" "Movin' On" "Good Lovin' Gone Bad" the list goes on. Disc 2 doesn't quite deliver as much as the 1st, but still has it's moments of brilliance from the later of the 'original' Bad Company line up.
Paul Rodgers has such a great voice and the bands best material camefrom their first six albums, if you don't own all six albums yet, this is definately a worth while purchase.

5.0 out of 5 stars A truly excellent anthology 3 Sep 2003
By Docendo Discimus TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Unless you're a very devoted fan, this is pretty much all you'll ever need from Bad Company.
"The Original Bad Co. Anthology" collects twenty-three of their best singles and album tracks. It draws from all their records, yet the compilers have wisely chosen to lean heavily towards the group's first two albums, which were also their best.
Their eponymous debut album is represented by no fewer than seven tracks (out of eight!), and five are culled from "Straight Shooter". And Elektra Records have even managed to find two good songs from the awful "Rough Diamonds" album, and it's actually very hard to find anything to say against the track selection, which is one of the best and most thorough I've ever seen.
Six B-sides and unissued songs are also included, as well as four brand new songs which make their debut here...and believe it or not, they're great!
Most of this is lean, mid-tempo rock music, bordering on hard rock. Bad Company had the ability to combine cruchy hard-rock riffs with great melodies, and they had a magnificent front man in Paul Rodgers, and a fine lead guitarist in Mick Ralphs.
This music is somewhat less bluesy and more mainstream than Paul Rodgers' previous band, Free, but it has a timeless sound that makes you wonder just why Bad Company ended up being lumped in with all the stale 70s rock dinosaurs, and all but forgotten in later years.
They certainly deserve much better, as this excellent collection demonstrates.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb 11 Nov 2009
Format:Audio CD
Original Bad Company Anthology...Disc One is just incredible. " Can't Get Enough", " Seagull", " Bad Company", " Feel Like Makin' Love", " Deal With The Preacher" & " Good Lovin' Gone Bad" are all top quality as are " Whisky Bottle" & the excellent " Shooting Star". Disc two is a little weaker but the quality is still there. " Burnin' Sky", " Oh Atlanta", " Smoking", " Hey Hey ( Baby)", " Hammer Of Love" & " Rock 'n' Roll Fantasy" all pay testament to this.

Some of the most compelling rock music EVER made is contained on this. Paul Rodgers, Mick Ralphs, Simon Kirke & Boz Burrell gelled effortlessly and delivered the goods bigtime!!!

Superbly remastered with a huge booklet of lyrics, photos and biography, this is an absolute must for all lovers of rock.

Cracking!!!:AAAAAA++++++

5.0 out of 5 stars Ray, Tipton, Staffordshire 13 Jan 2010
Format:Audio CD
Excellent compilation with 4 great new tracks at the end. but why didnt they add 'Live for the Music' & 'Simple Man' from Run with the Pack? They could have been added at the end of disc 1. Nevertheless a good buy with an excellent booklet. It's also great to see those 2 excellent 'B' sides 'Little Miss Fortune' & 'Whisky Bottle' included. We played those to death back in '75!

3.0 out of 5 stars Winning over another generation 2 Jun 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I wasn't actually born when Bad Co.'s last album with Paul Rodgers was released. I always thought they were a great band, and their best material is here (Can't Get Enough, Good Lovin Gone Bad) along with some unreleased gems (Superstar Woman).
However, this album also unwisely charts the band's deterioration towards the end of the 70's and the second CD is largely missable, with the exception of four new songs which are highly impressive, especially "Hey, Hey". Worth getting for the new songs and the classics, and Bad Co. aren't just for middle aged blokes who drive Rovers.
Fans of bands such as Reef and the Strokes should definitely check this out

5.0 out of 5 stars You're in good company with Bad Company 23 May 2010
Format:Audio CD
I bought this when it first came out on vinyl after seeing the band at The Valley in 1973 (I think). I played the 12inch almost to death but never bought any other BC albums. I bought this 2CD version on a whim and it's taken me all the way back to those great times. The original tracks are just as I remember them and the 2nd CD is just as good. It's a terrific collection of their great tracks - some you'll know and some you won't. But the less familiar and the new ones are great. If you liked BC all those years ago and liked them you won't be disappointed in this album. I play it in the car, on my iPod, home CD player (nice and loud when everyone's out) and I love it. There's nothing like this band around these days. Great sound, talent and passion. Great stuff.
