Bad Company live album features original lineup

Bad Company have confirmed the release of a double-length live album featuring the classic lineup of Paul Rodgers, Simon Kirke, Mick Ralphs and Boz Burrell.

It’s the only official live title to feature the original members since Live In Albuquerque was released in 2006, then withdrawn for legal reasons. Bassist Burrell died that year.

Bad Company Live In Concert 1977 & 1979 was recorded at the Summit in Houston, Texas on May 23, 1977, and at the Empire Pool, London – the old name for Wembley Arena – on March 9, 1979. In addition, the record features a cover of Jimi Hendrix’s Hey Joe, taped in Washington in June 1979.

The album arrives on April 29 via Rhino Records and it’s available for pre-order now.

Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
