In 1973, members of three popular bands came together to form Bad Company: singer Paul Rodgers and drummer Simon Kirke of Free; Mick Ralphs of Mott the Hoople and King Crimson bassist Boz Burrell.

That same year, Bad Company was the first band signed to Led Zeppelin’s new record label, Swan Song.

The bands real-life “Rock ’n’ Roll Fantasy” began 45 years ago when they topped the album charts in America with their self-titled debut, setting the group on a trajectory to become one of the most popular bands of the classic-rock era.

Bad Company’s multi-platinum musical legacy is about to be celebrated with a new clamshell boxed set that includes every studio album the group released on the Swan Song record label between 1974 and 1982, to be released on August 2 and available for pre-order now.  

Each album has been remastered from the original analogue multi-track tapes, including newly remastered versions of Desolation Angels and Rough Diamonds that are making their debut as part of this set. The other albums included in the collection are: Bad Company (1974), Straight Shooter (1975), Run with the Pack (1976), and Burnin’ Sky (1977).
