Last week, Rhino remastered and expanded two more classic albums Bad Company recorded for the Swan Song label. This week, we’ve got a copy of both new titles–and we want YOU to win!
Run With The Pack (1976) and Burnin’ Sky (1977) were the third and fourth albums by the British supergroup (vocalist Paul Rodgers and drummer Simon Kirke of Free, guitarist Mick Ralphs of Mott The Hoople and King Crimson bassist Boz Burrell), and continued the band’s stellar success in the United States, each peaking in Billboard‘s Top 20. Recorded in two separate sessions in France–one with The Rolling Stones’ mobile recording truck and one at The Château d’Hérouville where Elton John recorded some of his greatest albums–the LPs spawned one U.S. Top 20 hit, a cover of The Coasters’ “Young Blood,” and fan favorites “Silver, Blue and Gold,” “Honey Child,” “Everything I Need” and “Burnin’ Sky.” Each album includes a bonus disc of 14 bonus tracks each, only one of which (an acoustic version of “Do Right By Your Woman”) was previously issued as a non-LP B-side–the rest are heard here for the first time!
