Bad Company have released a version of Shooting Star recorded at Summit House in Houston, Texas in 1977 on the band’s Burning Sky tour. It’s taken from Bad Company: Live 1977 & 1979, the first official live album to be released featuring the band’s original line-up.

The live album features two previously unreleased concerts – the Houston show, and one recorded at the Empire Pool in London (now Wembley Arena) in 1979 on the Desolation Angels tour. Taken from original 24-track master tapes, neither recording features any overdubs or other enhancements.

The album also also includes the a cover of the classic Hey Joe, recorded in March 1979 at the Capitol Center in Washington, DC.

Live In Concert 1977 & 1979 is released on April 29. It will also be issued as individual double vinyl sets later in the year.
