Biography by Jason Ankeny

Formed in 1973, the British hard rock outfit Bad Company was a supergroup comprised of ex-King Crimson bassist Boz Burrell, former Mott the Hoople guitarist Mick Ralphs, and singer Paul Rodgers and drummer Simon Kirke, both previous members of Free. Powered by Rodgers' muscular vocals and Ralphs' blues-based guitar work, Bad Company was the first group ... Read more in Amazon's Bad Company Store

5.0 out of 5 stars BACK TO THEIR ROOTS RHYTHM & BLUES ROCK & ROLL/SOUL January 28, 2002
Format:Audio CD
If you liked Paul Rodgers first band FREE, then there's more than enough blues based simple rock & roll on BURNING SKY to satisfy. In fact the song "Like Water" was originally composed by Paul Rodgers band PEACE after the first break-up of FREE. You can find that version of "Like Water" on the UK only box set "FREE - Songs Of Yesterday". If you only like BAD COMPANY's radio singles like "Can't Get Enough" and "Feel Like Makin' Love", then you'll like the song "Burning Sky", but you may not like this entire CD as well as you would like their albums BAD CO. & STRAIGHT SHOOTER. I myself, think this is one of the best albums BAD COMPANY ever did. It contains songs in a simpler blues style and is overall a more mellow listening experience than are their other albums.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great voice, great mood, great album. August 5, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is the album that got ignored when they made a compilation of the early Bad Co's best work, so why did it get ignored when it's so good. The title track alone is reason enough to buy this album as it showcases the best aspects of the band and especially Paul Rogers' voice. Knapsack is the only departure from a soul filled album that makes a classic rock fans mouth salivate and drool profusely, and thats only because its a bit of a lark about put in to show the band still had a sense of humour. All Bad Co fans should have it in their collection and its worth a listen for anyone else who appreciates classy rock music.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Remastered Collection at a Great Price August 15, 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
For all of you out there in music land that are looking at this "Rhino Flashback" and wondering if this is simply an old inferior re-issue, rejoice! This very reasonably priced CD (around $5) sounds just as good, with identical output levels as other advertised "re-mastered" versions of Bad Company, which usually sell for more than twice this price. My copy says right on the back "Digitally Remastered from the Original Master Tapes by Ted Jensen at Sterling Sound". The disc also has the big "Flying Swan Song Guy" screenprinted across the disc just like all the other regular modern remasters that I have purchased.

So, if you have held off buying this particular disc because you felt like it just had one good song on it (Burnin' Sky), and you didn't want to pay full price for one song (nobody does), don't hesitate to pick this one up soon. You won't be disappointed. There are some really decent songs on here that I am hearing for the first time.

4.0 out of 5 stars This is just plain a great album July 25, 1998
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
the title track will wake you up in the morning, the middle tracks will pull you into blues/funk in the middle of the day, and the last track will make you wonder what the hell the band was on when they cut THAT track. All in all an album full of smooth tunes intoduced by good acoustic riffs. Cool Album. Loveable and funky and VERY listenable.

4.0 out of 5 stars A great album! February 12, 2009
By David Q
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I've always enjoyed this album. It was the beginning of the band's descent into pop, but it still is a great rock album. "Burnin' Sky" is a classic Bad Company tune, and side two doesn't have a bad song on it. Closing the album is "Master of Ceremony", the first blues tune on a Bad Company album and an awesome tune. You can't go wrong with this album.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best of No Frills Rock December 12, 2007
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
You can tell that today's "current" rock is heading back to the days of bands such as Bad Company. Simple, straight-ahead melodies; soulful, unvarnished vocals and a basic guitar/bass/drum bed underneath are all basic staples of rock 'n' roll. Paul Rodgers was voted "best rock voice ever" in the UK and this album only adds to that appelation. Mick Ralph's guitar is so vital, yet smartly spare. He's never been listed in the top-line guitar panels, but he is truly a gifted artist who does it right in both rhythm and lead applications. Simon Kirke is the perfect hammer for this musical anvil that broke up all too soon. Both alternative and harder rock are becoming more melodic and more simple. We may never eliminate the overstated distortion through which today's rhythm guitars are delivered, but groups like Nickleback, Foo Fighters and others are keeping the traditions alive. Even though Bad Company failed to make its planned comeback, I think, if handled correctly (as in the cases of The Eagles and Van Halen), a reunion tour and album would be the catalyst for the return of this seminal group.

5.0 out of 5 stars The sky is red, I don't understand ! March 31, 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Bad Co., well. If Paul Rogers is not one of the truly great rock singers of the 70's, then nobody is. Burnin' Sky blazes red the sky with plenty of wild tracks, big-size drum beats and huge bass. It is HOT ! The voice of this singer bears some resemblance to that of Sammy Haggar (yes, I know, comparisons are...). Overall, a great disc.

4.0 out of 5 stars A little older... a lot wiser. April 26, 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Bad Co.'s fourth release finds the band becoming far more mature as well as more talented. (A shame that they seemed to go downhill after this high water mark.) This cd scans the spectrum of American influenced music, from the 50's sound (Everything I Need), to Soul (Peace Of Mind), to Jazz and Blues (Master Of Ceremony), to Pop (Heartbeat), as well as Bad Co.'s forte, straight shooting, hard driving Rock 'n' Roll (Too Bad, Man Needs Woman, Leaving You). A surprise is the Monty Python sounding "Knapsack", which is inconsequential to the cd, but makes for a unique intro to "Everything". Deserving of 5 stars if only I hadn't heard the title track a zillion times on the radio (I hate when that happens).

The song Burnin' Sky is a great Bad Company song. The rest of the album just is very plain and soft to me. They must have been fighting or at artistic odds with each other,
