3.0 out of 5 stars Solid rock from Paul Rodgers and the boys October 17, 2005
"Merchants Of Cool" is a pretty cool DVD that combines video from two concerts staged by the new look Bad Company during their 2002 tour of the US.

I say new look because the band on this DVD comprises vocalist Paul Rodgers and drummer Simon Kirke from the original Bad Co line-up with bassist Jaz Lochrie and guitarist Dave "Bucket" Colwell filling in for original members Boz Burrell and Mick Ralphs.

Lochrie and Colwell are both great musicians but they aren't a patch on Burrell and Ralphs, whose distinctive guitaring style is sorely missed here.

Despite this, this is a rock solid concert video featuring the best known songs from the Bad Co catalogue - you have the hits like "Bad Company", "Ready For Love", "Can't Get Enough" and "Feel Like Makin' Love" mixed up with lesser known cuts like "Good Lovin' Gone Bad" and "Seagull" - plus a few tracks from the band Free like the famous sing along anthem "All Right Now" and "Wishing Well" (for which the band is joined by Slash and Neal Schon). Rounding off things is the video for a new song from Bad Company called "Joe Fabulous".

But it is a bit distracting that the DVD mixes up footage from two separate shows at the Paramount Theatre in Denver and the Grove Of Anaheim at Anaheim that were recorded in January 2002. Rodgers' decision to get the crowd to sing along on a few tracks is a bit annoying too.

On the plus side, Mr Paul Rodgers does possess probably the best blues vocal chords ever, and he is in great form on all the songs. Kirke's drumming can only be described in one word - powerhouse.

The footage is nice and sharp, with no bleeding of colours but the video is non-anamorphic widescreen. On the audio end of things, you get Dolby Digital 2.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simon Kirke and Paul Rodgers ! December 12, 2002
By M. Best
I remember the excellent music of FREE and Bad Company from years ago, but had not heard of anything new since the demise of the FIRM. Then, I saw Simon Kirke on one of Ringo Starr's wonderful shows, and he was every bit as good as he had been in my memories! I searched, and found this DVD of the newly reformed Bad Company, and bought it quickly! Paul Rodgers may be the best rock vocalist to ever grace the airwaves, but I believe he is at his best with Kirke providing the solid, "rock steady" foundation. This is what you get on this DVD! They do "Wishing Well" & "All Right Now" in conjuction to the magnificent Bad Company Hits. Mick Ralphs isn't here, but another guitarist fills in for him well enough. I like the new bassist, and have just played this DVD over, and over, again! The show presented here is wonderful, with Rodgers displaying a marvelous "frontman" skill along with his voice. This type of performance is the kind that really comes across well with DVD technology. The DVD has many special features, including a "hidden" song,(though I have not found it yet), and interviews with "friends" including Tommy Shaw from STYX, the Jabo Stokes Jive Rockets Band, and the Damm Yankees. I hope the hidden song is either "Fire & Water", or "My Brother Jake" from the FREE days, but regardless, this DVD is WELL WORTH the purchase!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Still One of the best ! August 24, 2002
Well I was not sure what to expect from this new version of the band without Mick Ralphs, but I must say they were as good as I have ever heard them here. I have seen the band twice, once in their hayday and once a few years ago.Paul Rodgers was in top form sounding bluesy and soulful as ever. The sound and video production were top flight, really what a concert DVD should be. The song selection could not have been better in my opinion, every single classic song was played in this show, I was as happy with this DVD as I have been in a while with any DVD. If your a BAD COMPANY FAN in any way shape or form get this DVD, even if you never really heard them and you love rock and roll give this one a try!

5.0 out of 5 stars BAD COMPANY - GREAT CONCERT - WOW...WOW... September 21, 2002
By JRinyu
Paul Rodgers should make this concert video a training film for other 70's rockers who want to continue making a possitive influence and impact in the Rock genre today. I've been 'Runnin' with the Pack' since my middle and high school days back in the mid 70's and since this concert I still 'CAN'T GET ENOUGH.' Paul is Magnificaent, Kirke is definately a 'Captain', and Lochrie and Colwell, whoa - what can I say? ABSOLUTELY GREAT! The audience participation alone (in this DVD) should define not only the loyalty and commitment of BAD COMPANY fans, but also the incredible sincerity and leadership of Paul to get this right. If there were ten stars in this rating - this DVD would have gotten it from me.
How this band failed to receive the recognition of the other power bands of the 70's (The Stones, The Who, Aerosmith, Led Zeplin, Pink Floyd, Bob Seger and the Silver Bullett Band, Lynard Skynard and even Genisis) I'll never understand. I suppose Paul Rodgers and BAD COMPANY just decided to methodically cut great tune after great tune for their true fans without worrying about the polls - just remember who won the race between the tortoise and the hare. BC - just like your rainbow in Silver, Blue and Gold - this DVD was overdue - don't let this be the last and don't ever break up.
WOW!!! This is a must buy! This is the best concert in my collection!
