Bad Company - In Concert: Merchants Of Cool

Methinks that pushing their way into summer shed tours and the work ethic that has made tourmates Styx a surprise live success has elevated Bad Company's game. Everything about this package screams major label, from the swank packaging to the snappy drum sound of simple man Simon Kirke (the only other original on board is essential component Paul Rodgers) to the tacking on of a couple new studio tracks at the end. All the hits are here, including Can't Get Enough, Ready For Love, Shooting Star, Free classic All Right Now and set highlight, a spirited and lilting Rock And Roll Fantasy. Fit as a fiddle, and lucky for us, trapped in a rock starry time warp.
