Bad Company - Self Titled

Hooray for 'Two Self Titled Friday'!! Should that be a new B Side installment? Hmm, probably not. Not only would that be incredibly hard on our amazing writer (ahem) but it's also kind of lame. So we'll go with it being a fun (and VERY coincidental) one time affair. Seriously, everyone in the world has heard of Bad Company right? I mean, if you haven't - I question how much music you really listen to. These guys have been just about everywhere for 4 decades. Crazily enough, this British band has sold more records in the US than in the UK. That pretty much never happens guys. Home countries 99.9% of the time always support and artist more than somewhere else. I can't even conjecture why that happened for Bad Co. They have a TON of hits in America, and you don't have to look any further than this - their first record. I'll retort that back in the '70s when everything was in vinyl, you could only fit 8 songs or so per LP. So naturally this album is short, but very, very amazing. Released in 1974 - it has sold over 5 million copies in the US alone. It's no Boston, but really good nonetheless. Even if you're reading this and thinking, "This B Side fella, what an a-hole. How dare he question my musical prowess because I haven't heard of Bad Company??" Well I'd say, relax there wonderful reader, and my point is - you most certainly have heard of these guys. Listen to the sample tracks posted, you'll have heard at least one song from this record. And probably at least 5 Bad Co songs from all their works. Great music, it's Friday, it's nice outside - this just keeps getting better! Blast some Bad Co not only on your Friday, but pump it all the way through the weekend!!
