Bad Company Straight Shooter: Deluxe Edition on 180g 2LP
Remastered from the Original Tapes w/ 8 Previously Unreleased Bonus Tracks!
For the first time ever, Bad Company has remastered Bad Company (1974) and Straight Shooter (1975) using the original tapes to create new Deluxe Editions. It was paramount to founding member Paul Rodgers that the CD and LP be copied from the original tapes to guarantee the best sound possible. Each set includes a newly remastered version of the original album, along with a number of rare and unreleased recordings. The CD versions of these Deluxe Editions include all of the newly discovered bonus tracks, while their 180-gram vinyl counterparts offer a selection of the bonus material.
Bad Company followed up it's No. 1 charting self-titled debut with second album Straight Shooter in April 1975, 40 years to the month of the new Deluxe Edition. The album rose to #3 on the U.S. album chart and was certified 3x platinum behind the hit singles “Feel Like Makin’ Love” and “Good Lovin’ Gone Bad” as well as the rock radio staple “Shooting Star."
The second disc of the Deluxe Edition features 8 bonus tracks, all of which are previously unreleased. Among the standouts is a stripped-down version of “Shooting Star,” a remix of “Good Lovin’ Gone Bad” with alternative guitar and vocals tracks, as well as an early version of "Deal With The Preacher."
