Bad Company: Desolation Angels 35th anniversary featured on In The Studio

The 35th anniversary of Bad Company’s 1979 release, “Desolation Angels”, is featured on this week’s edition of North American rock radio series In The Studio.

The band’s fifth album was a return to form for Bad Company after 1977’s disappointing effort, “Burnin’ Sky”, which followed three consecutive million-sellers in as many years.

After a much needed two-year hiatus, Bad Company re-emerged with their strongest batch of songs since that impressive debut, including the electrifying “Rock’n'Roll Fantasy”, “Evil Wind” and “Crazy Circles” all from Paul Rodgers chronicling life on tour; Boz Burrell’s simple groove on “Gone, Gone, Gone”; and the mid-tempo rocker “Oh Atlanta” from Mick Ralphs.

“Desolation Angels” reached No. 3 on the US Billboard 200 album chart and went on to sell more than 2 million copies in the States.

Paul Rodgers, Mick Ralphs and Simon Kirke join host Redbeard to discuss the project.
