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" are new recordings made for this compilation. There is a notable omission of "Electric Land", "Gone, Gone, Gone", and "Young Blood", which were fairly big hits with Rodgers…

Dangerous Age is the eighth studio album by hard rock band Bad Company. The album was released on August 23, 1988. It was their second album with Brian Howe as lead vocalist and Steve Price as bass guitarist. It helped bring the group back into the spotlight, with major radio airplay for the tracks "No Smoke Without A Fire"(#4), "One Night"(#9) and "Shake It Up"(#9) all reaching the top 10 on Billboard Magazines Album Rock Tracks chart.
Straight Shooter is the second studio album by British supergroup Bad Company. The album was released in April 1975. The album reached number 3 in the UK Albums Chart and the US Billboard 200. It was certified gold a month after its release. Mick Ralphs and Simon Kirke revealed on In the Studio (which devoted an episode to Straight Shooter) that the track "Shooting Star" (which told the story of a rock star who died early) was lyrically inspired by the drug and alcohol-related deaths of Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, and Jim Morrison.
From the release of their first album in 1974, Bad Company were one of the biggest hard rock bands of the '70s. Featuring former members of Free (vocalist Paul Rodgers and drummer Simon Kirke), Mott the Hoople (guitarist Mick Ralphs), and King Crimson (bassist Boz Burrell), Bad Company's straightforward but swaggering attack earned them a steady run of hits. While Bad Company never released a live album with their classic lineup, Atlantic/Rhino Records has delivered something special for the group's fans.
"Holy Water" is the ninth studio album by hard rock band Bad Company, and their third with Brian Howe as lead vocalist, released in June 1990. The singles on the album all received significant radio airplay. These included "Holy Water", "Boys Cry Tough", "Walk Through Fire", and "If You Needed Somebody", all of which charted fairly well. To date, this is the last album by Bad Company to go platinum.
