BAD COMPANY: vaults open

BAD COMPANYThere’s never been an abundance of material from the classic BAD COMPANY line-up outside their six LPs. Even 1999’s “The Original Bad Company Anthology” didn’t add much rarities to their canon. But now, with the onset of the band’s reissue program that will see their albums given a deluxe treatment, that’s about to change. Every one of those will come as a 2CD package, where first disc is a remastered record, and the second a collection of mostly unreleased material. Thus – and we’re talking about “Bad Company” and “Straight Shooter,” out on April 7th – B-sides such as a re-cut “Easy On My Soul” from FREE times will share the space with working versions, and now – finally – there’s a couple of outtakes here.
