4.0 out of 5 stars Everything most fans will ever need
"10 From 6" means ten songs from the original Bad Company lineup's six different studio albums (actually the ten songs on this compilation were culled from only five of them - "Burnin' Sky" isn't represented).
It may seem like an awfully short compilation album from a band which released six studio albums, and had big hits like "Feel Like Makin' Love", "Electric...

This review is from: 10 from 6 - Best Of Bad Company (Audio CD)
"10 From 6" means ten songs from the original Bad Company lineup's six different studio albums (actually the ten songs on this compilation were culled from only five of them - "Burnin' Sky" isn't represented).
It may seem like an awfully short compilation album from a band which released six studio albums, and had big hits like "Feel Like Makin' Love", "Electric Land" and "Can't Get Enough". But "10 From 6" actually works exceedingly well, and all the radio hits that most casual fans will associate with the band are here, over half of them taken from Bad Company's first two albums ("Bad Co." and "Straight Shooter").
If you are looking for a more thorough overview of the band, check out "The Original Bad Co. Anthology", but since Bad Company's albums tended to be rather uneven, this is actually a very good collection for those who just want the cream of the crop. Virtually all of the best of Bad Company is here.

4.0 out of 5 stars Yep, this really is pretty much the best of Bad Company, 4 May 2005
By A Customer
This review is from: 10 from 6 - Best Of Bad Company (Audio CD)
"10 from 6" includes 4 from 1 not to mention 0 from 1, which is way of using mathematical notations to signify the fact that Bad Company got off to a fast start that the group never managed to maintain. The translation would simply read that four of the cuts on this hits collection came from their self-titled debut title and if you look for a song with a "star" by it from their fourth album, "Burning Sky," you are not going to find anything. In fact, use the magic key and you see that there are two tracks from their second and third albums and only one apiece from their last two. Actually, "10 From 6" is a horrible title, since it is really more like "10 From (6-1)" or something. Enough math formulations. Bad Company was a supergroup that featured Paul Rodgers from Free on lead vocals and guitarist Mick Ralph from Mott the Hoople. They were the second group to put out records on Led Zeppelin's Swan Song label for Atlantic Records; of course, years later Rodgers and Jimmy Page joined up for a couple of albums as the Firm. Their first three albums--"Bad Company," "Straight Shooter," and "Run With the Pack"--were the only decent ones they produced so this is one of those groups where if you decide just to pick up their greatest hits collection, that will probably do just fine.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent collection of Paul Rodger's worthy achievements, 17 Feb 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: 10 from 6 - Best Of Bad Company (Audio CD)
Bad Company never made it into the 'super-group' category of music , being a sort of 'hand-me-down' of Free. Nevertheless, it deserved to, being a refreshing change from the more difficult Black Sabbath and Deep Purple genre of music of the time. Paul Rodgers proved his total contribution to Free through the formation of Bad Company -and let's face it, he's still on the circuit today, delighting audiences all over the world - not only with the old Free anthems, the Bad Company oldies, but also with new vibrant material. Today, he seems somewhat dated and frayed at the edges - the peace-and-love-man thing just doesn't work any more - but this Bad Company album, taken in it's own context and relevance to the progression of rock music at that time, is an outstanding example of what an accomplished musician can do.
On this album there is probably not 1 track that is better than the other - although if I were pushed I'd have to say it is Ready For Love - and it's interesting that almost all of these tracks remain part of the repertoire of Rodger's live music today.

5.0 out of 5 stars dont miss their 2002 uk tour, 22 April 2002
This review is from: 10 from 6 - Best Of Bad Company (Audio CD)
This has to be the greatest selections from one of the worlds greatest forgotten bands on the one album. Not only is the music superb but any one who is a fan of good lyrics should make this a must for their shopping back.Formed by founder members of groups such as Mott the Hoople and Free it has a mix of modern blues and rock ballad in every track. their 6 gig tour in 1999 in USA sold out and i expect the 2002 UK one to do the same.Look out also for their Live CD due out in May 2002

There are ten brilliant tracks on this album from Paul Rodgers and company, providing great entertainment with songs such as "Can't Get Enough", "Run With the Pack", "Shooting Star", "Ready for Love" and "Live for the Music". What more could you expect from such a fantastic band ?

Just wanted to add some Bad Company music to my collection and must say it hits the spot , acted as a reminder of songs I had not listened too for a long time , I would recommend this CD if you just want to listen to some of the best known music done by Bad Company.

3.0 out of 5 stars Sadly reaffirms excellent two album band, 2 Oct 2012

This review is from: 10 from 6 - Best Of Bad Company (Audio CD)
I saw Bad Company twice live when they started out, after their first and second albums respectively had been released. After that I did not see or pick up on any subsequent releases since they seemed to quickly go into decline. This CD sadly reaffirms that case with all the later tracks after those from the first two albums sounding lacklustre and jaded.

While it had taken several years for Free to finally implode, the down ward arc for Bad Company was tragically much quicker with a lack of good songs and musicianship. While Paul Rodgers is now earning a good living recycling this music with Simon Kirke often in attendance, that first quartet of Rodgers, Kirke, Burrell and Rodgers definitely cooked though I would happily swap any day the turgid "Shooting Star" for "Mess with the preacher" from the second album.

If you can pick up the first and second albums for little more than this compilation (which comes with no liner notes or history to supplement) I would recommend you do so and listen and enjoy what Lucinda Williams I recall euphemistically termed the best cock rock of the '70s!
