Bad Company to reissue first two albums on 180-gram vinyl

Bad Company will reissue their first two classic albums, “Bad Company” and “Straight Shooter”, on 180-gram vinyl on July 1st.

Both releases will contain all of the original packaging.

The band’s self-titled debut album, “Bad Company”, released in 1974 reached No. 1 on the US Billboard Top 200 and has since been certified five times platinum for US sales of 5 million copies. The set contains some of the most well known rock songs of all time, including “Can’t Get Enough”, “Rock Steady”, “Ready For Love”, “Don’t Let Me Down”, “Bad Company”, “The Way I Choose”, “Movin’ On” and “Seagull.”

The album produced two US top-20 singles: “Can’t Get Enough” hit No. 5 on the Billboard Hot 100, while “Movin’ On’” reached No. 19.

The band’s follow-up album, 1975’s “Straight Shooter”, reached No. 3 on the Billboard Top 200 and featured the hits “Feel Like Making Love” (No. 10) and “Good Lovin’ Gone Bad” (No. 36) along with “Shooting Star”, “Deal With The Preacher”, “Weep No More”, “Wild Fire Woman”, “Anna” and “Call On Me”.

After a successful run of shows together last year, Bad Company and Lynyrd Skynyrd are teaming up again for a series of summer tour dates across North America.

The two classic rock acts will pair up for a two-week trek starting July 10 in Bangor, Maine before wrapping things up in Detroit on July 25.
