HARD ROCK? NO CLASSIC ROCK!!!!
on 11 February 2010
Havent had this out of the cd player since it arrived a couple of days ago,this is fantastic,look at the track listing quality all the way with no filler.Opening with the title track of the first album 'Bad Company' its obvious from the outset that Bad Co are on fire,Rodgers smiling from ear to ear,Ralphs strutting his stuff and Kirke solid as ever on drums,aided and abetted by Howard Leese/Lynn Sorensen on guitar/bass.Classic after classic flows forth 6 tracks from BAD COMPANY(1974),3 from STRAIGHTSHOOTER(1975) AND 5 from RUN WITH THE PACK(1976),the title track from BURNIN SKY(1977) and the two best tracks from '79's ROCK N ROLL FANTASY,this is classic seventies rock,the template for so many bands(Whitesnake/Foriegner?),brought right up to date,highlights are many the beautiful 'Seagull',the poignant dedication of 'Gone gone gone' to Boz burrell,the culmination of the show with the Cant Get Enough/Rock N Roll Fantasy/Ready For Love & Good Lovin Gone Bad,how many bands would kill for music of that quality?,i could go on an on,damn it every track is superb,this is possibly the album of the year,already!!
the cd contains 16 tracks with the dvd 17(Sweet 'Lil Sister being the extra track)
Sound quality is excellent,its smooth not edgy like they would have been in the 70's,(we need Live in Alberquerque'76 to be issued for that),but it only highlights the quality of the band and music contained.
The dvd is excellent,certainly they wont top Kiss/Maiden for special effects on that sparse stage but its the music that counts and it speaks volumes for 3 guys combined ages 150+ years that they hold the audience in the psalm of their hand.
Ultimately this is a no brainer a cd/dvd package at this price is a must have and it certainly whets the appetite for the forthcoming UK tour,Glasgow awaits Bad Co with open arms,keep rockin lads you are magnificent.
