Tuesday 12am ET: Feature LP: Bad Company – The ‘Original’ Bad Co. Anthology (1999)

The ‘Original’ Bad Co. Anthology is a compilation album released by Bad Company in 1999 on Elektra Records. This album marks Bad Company’s first new songs since 1982 to feature original lead singer Paul Rodgers. In addition to the classic hits, it also features six B-sides and outtakes. Technical information was retrieved from the 1999 Edition released by Elektra Records. Most songs on this album were previously released on Swan Song Records. The tracks “Tracking Down a Runaway”, “Ain’t It Good”, “Hammer of Love” and “Hey, Hey” were new songs recorded especially for this release. The compilation notably omits the tracks “Young Blood”, “Gone, Gone, Gone” and “Electricland”, all of which were fairly big hits with Rodgers.
