Released in 1974, Straightshooter is regarded by many as being Bad Company's strongest album. It has the bluesy feel of its predecessor (Bad Co) but has the band turning their amps up 11 and rocking out the strongest set of songs of the band's career. Do not forget that Bad Co was a supergroup with 2 guys out of Free (Rodgers and Kirke), the bass player from King Crimson (Boz Burrell) and Mott the Hoople's guitarist (Mick Ralphs). They should have been huge, of course, but suffered from having to play second fiddle to Swan Song stablemates Led Zeppelin. The songs were great, their sound: a sort of supercharged, sexy blues-rock without the pretention of Led Zep. What let them down perhaps was their lyrics, some of which make Spinal Tap look like Leonard Cohen, but if you can take that - and I can - this album is a great listen from beginning to end. Bad Company were also one of the few hard rock bands that wrote great ballads (Anna), though it was Straightshooter's high-octane rockers like Good Lovin' Gone Bad, Feel Like Making Love and Shooting Star that helped secure them a place in rock history. Bad Company were a good, tight band, but I would recommend anyone to listen to them purely to hear Paul Rodgers' masterful rock vocals. New to Bad Company? Get this one first, and then Bad Co.

I have been eagerly awaiting this release & it didn't let me down at all, it actually blew me away. IMO the first two Bad Co. albums are the best & now Audio Fidelity has issued Straight Shooter to go along with the self titled debut & it really rocks!! People either love or hate Steve Hoffman but to my ears he has done a wonderful mastering job on Straight Shooter. Simon Kirke's drums pack a punch, they are very sharp, & Mick Ralph sounds fantastic, not to mention the ageless Paul Rodgers. My only complaint is that the album is short & I didn't want it to end (LOL) so I played it twice through just to appreciate the solid musicianship sounding so good. I paid about $22 including shipping & it is about the best sounding cd for the buck that I own, out of about 4000 including DVD-A, SACD,MOFI,SHM etc. etc. If you are a fan of Bad Co., or just a fan of rock & roll, this AF release is a must have!!

This album is as good as their first one, which gained them masive popularity right from the begginning, and in my humble opinion, 'Straight shooter' is even better than 'Bad Co'. And that means it is their best record. There aren't any weak songs on this album, as some revewers have pointed out - anyone who knows what great rock and roll/hard rock is, will say that those statements are just bunch of c**p.
Ok, maybe lyrics aren't too strong allways (example, 'Anna'), but music is pure, 100%, straight-on rock, and it is hard /rock/ indeed. 'Good lovin' gone bad', 'Feel like makin love', 'Shooting star', 'Deal with the preacher' and 'Wild fire woman' are fine example of that. Other songs are great, too. The riff from 'Feel like makin love' may be stollen from The Who, but who cares! It is one of the greatest rock songs/ballads ever written. What a power during refrains! My personal favorite is 'Shooting star', and it is one of the greatest rock songs ever, too. Music is perfect, and lyrics are, simply put, tale-story masterpice. It's telling us abuot rock'n'roll ideals and song is allegoric story about rock star. That na-na-na vocals at the end of the song makes me cry every time I hear it. And solo is great touch, just superb.
Paul Rodgers always delivers some of the greatest and most emotional vocals in rock music, and here is, ofcourse, in great form. So, this is not only hard rock, is very emotional and solful music, preformed by great musitians. Hey, they were supergroup!
Anyway, this is a must for any rock fun. Just turn it up, and let it inside you. And when first tune begins, you can start to dance, or jump, or whatever you want..
AND COME ON JOHNNY, SING US A SONG ONE MORE TIME!

This review is for the vinyl version of Straight Shooter. First, I have to say that this album, or at least the copy I received was either a badly pressed album or the record was treated like a Frisbee. Maybe it was just the copy I received...or came from a bad batch/run.
The vinyl has very bad scuffing, marring, etc. as you can see from the photos I've added. These photo's were taken when the album was taken straight from the cover and placed on the turntable the for the first time. To be honest, sounds worse than most used albums I've purchased from other websites so I hope it's not all copies.
I was really hoping this would have been a better review because the music from this album, the self-titled album and Running With The Pack are Bad Companies best in my humble opinion.
If they release a new remaster of Running With The Pack I'll be purchasing it, in hopes that it's better than this one.

I'll admit to not listening to Bad Company much past the end of high school (mid 1970's). I had fond memories of the band - they encapsulated pretty much the best aspects of classic arena rock, love it or hate it. It's cool to put the band down today, but that is because radio overplayed their material. Don't blame the band, they created an excellent body of work.
I ordered both re-issues, expecting the first one to be the classic and the second one the lesser work. But to my surprise, I actually enjoyed 'Straight Shooter' more. I had forgotten that 'Feel Like Making Love' - the most classic song by the group ever, IMHO - was on this album, and this sucker just rocks really well from beginning to end. Plus the bonus disc has four great outtakes and some real variations of the more famous songs. Perhaps the first disc, with songs like 'Can't Get Enough' - still feels overplayed and slightly cliched, while the second album is worthy of being rediscovered.
