    Marquette, Michigan  –  February 25, 2015  –  Who doesn’t love some Bad Company? I know I do! So, I’m pretty stoked that one of my favorite Brit hard-rock bands is releasing remastered and expanded editions of their first two studio albums as a double-disc CD or vinyl set on April 7.

    Their title album from 1974, Bad Company, peaked at #1 on the Billboard 200 and went on to sell more than five million copies in the U.S. 1975’s Straight Shooter reached #3 on the Billboard 200 and sold more than three million copies in the States.

    ABC News Radio says the updated collections were remastered from original tapes according to frontman Paul Rodgers’ wishes. You’ll find bonus tracks including some recently discovered unreleased tracks along with alternate takes and mixes from the recording sessions.

    The reissues will be available as digital downloads as well (I can’t wait)! Track lists for the expanded collections are below:
