My favourite Bad Company album and effectively the template for early Whitesnake and arguably the best album Paul Rodgers sung on,to be fair there are a few 'Free' albums which could also hold that tag.

Disc 1 . as with the debut disc remaster,its the original album remastered,no bonus tracks and sounds superb,it was a classic then, its a classic now.

Disc 2 14 tracks,the entire album again in alternate takes/alternate vocal etc plus some b'sides and a couple of unreleased tracks namely 'All Night Long' and 'See The Sunlight' ,love both of them,cant believe they have been held back all this time.

Sound quality superb,packaging excellent and excellent booklet. Cant wait for the next batch...

For many fans of classic rock, a reissue programme of Bad Company's work is long overdue. Therefore, it is all the more encouraging to discover that the band's first two albums have been given such satisfying overhauls at last. I have owned both of these albums on vinyl for some years and each one is great but, if I had to make a choice between them, i would say STRAIGHT SHOOTER (1975) just has the edge over the self-titled debut.

Featuring singer Paul Rodgers and drummer Simon kirks from Free, guitarist Mick Ralphs from Mott The Hoople and bassist Boz Burrell, late of progressive rockers King Crimson, Bad Company coalesced in late 1973, cut a deal with Led Zeppelin's fledgling Swan Song Records and released a self-titled debut album in 1974 that was tailor-made for global success. Spearheaded by the Ralphs-penned single 'Can't Get Enough', the album topped the charts in America and made the Top Three here in the UK. A round of sell-out touring thus found the band brimming with confidence as they ventured to Clearwell Castle with assistance from Ronnie Lane's in-demand mobile studio to record what would become STRAIGHT SHOOTER in late 1974. And sure enough, this second long-player was another slice of excellence.

This time around, Mick Ralphs delivered an equally muscular opening gambit in 'Good Lovin' Gone Bad', while incomparably soulful vocalist Paul Rodgers came up with possibly one of his finest ever songs in 'Shooting Star'. Notably too, drummer Simon Kirke offered up two compositions of sensitivity in the lilting shuffle of 'Weep No More' and the ballad 'Anna'.

There can't be many FREE and BAD COMPANY fans the worldwide that don't look misty-eyed at the cool Hipgnosis cover art for 1975's "Straight Shooter" and feel a quickening of the pulse and parallel movement in their ever so tight leather pants (well maybe not so tight in 2015). Bad Company’s self-titled debut from 1974 and this "Straight Shooter" (their 2nd smash album on Island Records in 1975) were always going to get 'Deluxe Edition' treatment at some point - and a 40th Anniversary seems like as good a time as any. It’s just that few of us could have expected such a bonanza of properly classic 70ts Rock on Disc 2 - because this is a wickedly good 2-disc 'DE' when a lot in the last few years have felt superfluous to requirements or worse - callous cash-ins. Here are the loaded dices...

UK released April 2015 – "Straight Shooter: Deluxe Edition" on Rhino/Swan Song 081227955533 (Barcode is the same) is a 2CD set and breaks down as follows:

CD 1 – Original Album (2015 Remaster) – 38:49 minutes:
1. Good Lovin' Gone Bad
2. Feel Like Makin’ Love
3. Weep No More
4. Shooting Star
5. Deal With The Preacher [Side 2]
6. Wild Fire Woman
7. Anna
8. Call On Me
Tracks 1 to 8 are their 2nd studio album "Straight Shooter" – released April 1975 in the UK on Island ILPS 9304 and in the USA on Swan Song SS 8413. It peaked at No. 3 on both charts.

CD 2 – Bonus Tracks: Alternate Takes & Unreleased Songs – 68:48 minutes:
1. Good Lovin' Gone Bad (Alternate Vocal & Guitar)
2. Feel Like Makin' Love (Take Before Master)
3. Weep No More (Early Slow Version)
4. Shooting Star (Alternate Take)
5. Deal With The Preacher (Early Version)
6. Anna (Alternate Vocal)
7.

Many would agree that this album represents Bad Company at their most confident. Does that translate to quality? I say it does. This is their greatest achievement.

Contrary to popular belief, this was not a copy of the first BC album. SS is sassier, heavier, and more consistent, viz:

Good Lovin' Gone Bad - It may have those Ralphs trademarks, but is certainly not a Can't Get Enough clone. For a start, it was never a Mott the Hoople song! (CGE actually dates from 1970, when MtH were an Island Band.) This is tough hard rock at its most memorable, and crunchy.

Feel Like Making Love - A unique (apart from track 4) mix of acoustic wistfulness and heavy rock fire. Outrageous, in a nice way. And who can argue with THAT guitar solo?

Weep No More - A beautiful song that shows what a romantic Simon Kirke is. The other three make this a sublime moment too. Perfect.

Shooting Star - Structured like track 2, but still its own song. Simple but very effective. The heaviness that brings the song to its climax is again shocking amongst the country-esque charm of the verses.

Deal with the Preacher - Heavy and funky (hear Boz' clever bass-lines), with a great lyric about indecision over commitment. A great fave with the late Tommy Vance, bless him. One of Ralphs' greatest solos, rivalling Blackmore or Santana at the time.

Wildfire Women - The sort of laid-back heaviness that Bad Co excelled at. Slide guitar adds a certain musical menace. This shows Rodgers stretching out more than any other song I can think of. A gem.

Anna - Again Mr Kirke does the heartfelt thing. Possibly the most Free-like moment here. No flash, just feeling.

Call on Me - The perfect way to end an album.
