Digitally remastered edition of the multi-platinum selling debut from this sensational supergroup featuring members of Journey and the Babys. Includes 16 page full color booklet with 4,000 word essay, enhanced artwork with previously unseen photos and a new interview. There were many attempts at piecing together supergroups during the late '80s but few were as successful as Bad English, a project born from the mash-up of two hugely influential outfits, namely the Babys (John Waite, Ricky Philips) and Journey (Jonathan Cain, Neal Schon and, later, Deen Costronovo). Both groups had featured talent to die for so anticipation was extremely high for this noble alliance, Fortunately, unlike similar collaborations, the results were spectacular, leaving no one in any doubt that Bad English had delivered a cornerstone record, one that is still revered to this day. Fronted by the stunning and instantly identifiable voice of John Waite, and ably supported by guitar firebrand Neal Schon, the album contains a brace of superior tracks that elevated the record to platinum status and beyond. Signed to the Epic Records label and produced by Richie Zito (Eddie Money, Cheap Trick, Heart) it boasted no less than five hit singles, including 'Price Of Love' and the chart topping #1 power ballad 'When I See You Smile'. It was a record constructed with pin point accuracy crushing the competition by a country mile. Issued in June 1989, their commercial accomplishments belies the band's true depth, a powerhouse rock band laying down the law with grit and determination, as demonstrated on tracks like 'Possession', 'Best Of What I Got', 'Forget Me Not' and 'Rockin' Horse'; all scorching examples of a style and sound that has not diminished one jot over time. No wonder the album sold Platinum and beyond.
