Ive had this CD before and I lost it and it HAD to be replaced!
Christine Drury
All songs are honest to the original versions, but they never come across as anything more than a different recording of the orginal.
Eric J. Weik
Howe does an excellent job with the lead vocals (original Paul Rodgers).

There is a funny thing about this incarnation of Bad Co. While songs like "Holy Water" sound great, just like the studio versions, songs like "Bad Co." sound like a BAD COVER band trying to play Bad Co. I saw Bad Co 5 times between Dangerous Age and Holy Water and while the shows were great, the original songs were NOT up to par (original meaning Paul Roger songs). Paul is back!

Howe's voice sears through the grit of rigorous touring and burns the deaf ears of his critics leaving a smoking testament to his long stint as Bad Company's "master of ceremonies". The stand out tracks are the soulful, serpentine "Ready For Love" and the heartfelt "If You Needed Somebody". Mick Ralphs is in fine form, flexing his black & blue guitar muscle on tough rockers like "No Smoke Without A Fire" and the ever classic "Feel Like Makin' Love". Newer members, Bucket & Rick Wills, turn in solid performances, providing sturdy support for their front men. Simon Kirke whips along, nearly effortlessly, but stumbles a bit on the unimaginative "Fist Full of Blisters". His punchy grooves and country fried swing are flawless in the context of the songs but a drum solo was an unfortunate waste of 4 minutes. This live set would have been better served by the inclusion of "Electric Land", the long ignored but fierce "Fame & Fortune", or perhaps the rarely aired gem "Gone, Gone, Gone". All in all, this is an excellent recording that makes no excuses for it's rough edges, hence it's title. Howe's most impressive vocal theatrics, still don't match the magic of Paul Rodgers (sorely missed, also, are Rodgers' piano contributions), but here we see his voice starting to mature, at least in terms of control and range. Check out show closer "Bad Company" for proof. The more recent material faired well here, not because of it's musical strength, but because Brian Howe drove it home. Play this loud, in your car, on a summer night, and you will not be disappointed. This line up was great and their work makes up a considerable portion of Bad Company's catalog. Their mark was made here, where it counts, on stage.

THE BEST OF BAD COMPANY-LIVE/WHAT YOU HEAR IS WHAT YOU GET: A misnomer is what you're getting here. Blooze-spewing ex-Free frontman Paul Rodgers put the "Bad" in Bad Co. via earthbound, grit-saturated vocals and climactic lyrical ad-libbing, but once replaced (and I use that term loosely) by pedestrian singer Brian Howe, the band's shooting star fizzled. This concert cash-in on hits old and new is also minus the rock-steady bottom line of bassist Boz Burrell, but Rodgers is the key omission; better to check out the 2002 live offering MERCHANTS OF COOL, still featuring only half the original members, but at least one of 'em is Paul. On WHAT YOU HEAR IS WHAT YOU GET, early Bad Co. staples FEEL LIKE MAKIN' LOVE, CAN'T GET ENOUGH and ROCK 'N ROLL FANTASY clearly have the edge over the newer stuff, but coming out of HOWE's mouth, this could be ANY hard rock cover band riffing away, not the instantly recognizable BC. As far as "classic" rock goes, this is a barely servicable live experience that will put the listener in some pretty bad company.

By the time this CD was released, vocalist Brian Howe had been with the band for eight (8) years so it's a bit easier to at least 'sort of' accept Bad Company the way they are. I saw Howe with Bad Co. twice and this is pretty much a typical live album. More recent tracks here include "How About That", "Here Comes Trouble", "Take This Town" and "If You Needed Somebody". For some reason, these tunes seem to grow on you, probably because guitarist Mick Ralphs is STILL able to pen out good songs. The older / vintage Bad Co. cuts are nicely done, considering. Like "Ready For Love", "Rock & Roll Fantasy", "Shooting Star", their signature love song "Feel Like Making Love" (show me a female that doesn't like this song), "Movin' On", "Good Lovin' Gone Bad" and "Can't Get Enough". My only complaint is that "Shake It Up" isn't on here. Nice cover, though.

This is a great live album which showcases the best of both eras of Bad Company. Brian Howe is a great singer who takes both early songs and newer material and makes them his own. A fine performance that left me wanting more. The band is in fine form and really show some of those latter day "pretenders" how real rock should be played.... with conviction. Great versions of Ready for Love, Good Lovin' gone Bad, Can't Get Enough and Bad Company round off a great live album that makes you wish you were there. Do yourself a favour and listen to this album. Any lover of classic rock wont be disappointed. Rock on Bad Company!

It’s a live album warts and all and it’s fairly obvious they didn’t fix up too much here.
There are moments that inspire and those that let you down a bit.

Not sure this recording captured this incarnation of the band at their peak but I do enjoy certain parts of it.

It’s not a ground breaking live album by any means and it plays things safely.
By the time this recording took place, you had Dave Cowell and Rick Wills playing alongside Simon Kirke, Mick Ralphs and Brian Howe.

The playing for the most part is good and the strongest part is probably Howe’s vocals.
He of course does his best on his own songs and not those once sung by “The voice”, Paul Rodgers.

Quite honestly, I would have preferred they focus a bit more on some of the better material Howe/Thomas/Ralphs put together but I suppose you have to include the overplayed “classics”.

I will add that “Take this town” just might be my favorite moment on this live album.

You can’t deny the talent that existed in this incarnation and it rears its head off and on throughout this recording.
I saw this incarnation 3 times between Dangerous Age and Holy Water and they didn’t disappoint.
I remember looking at the songs and seeing “Fistful of blisters” and thinking “cool, new song played live!”
Well, based on the title I figured out fairly quick it was Simon Kirke's pummeling drum solo
I know the powers that be disintegrated in a cloud of acrimony but this version of Bad Company was perfect for the times and much better than a lot of the sludge out there at the time.
I’ve had this release for over 20 years and it comes out to play every 4 or 5 years.
