There are 3 Bad Company albums on emusic. Bad Company and Straight Shooter are both listed under Mick Ralphs name for some reason, and Run With The Pack is included under the title Live For The Music.

Bad Company - Bad Company (Debut Album)

RealRighteousReview

Being my favorite bands of all time it was formed from three successful bands already formed of that time period. Paul Rodgers and Simone Kirke of Free, guitarist Mick Ralphs of Mott the Hoople, and bass guitarist Boz Burrell of King Crimson were the original cast of members for the band and the only ones I consider since I did not listen to the band after that point. The year was 1973 and the governmental acid experiments of the 60's were over. The Viet Nam war would last two more years and Bad Company was releasing their first album Bad Company was all about a theme portraying the six string as six gun and lone love songs and ballads. Bad Company is my favoite band of all times and Bad Company/ Bad Company is my most favored album by the band and my most favorite song and motto that "I can't deny", is the same as theirs and is "Bad Company". "Till the day I die"!

another time...

It had a hit or two, but man, times were lean. I ran out and got this with joy, and played it death. It died pretty quickly though. The big labels controlled the product, and generic rock like this was what they wanted to sell. The digital downloading era has opened so many doors, for so many bands the old system would have smothered. There must have been outstanding bands playing bars when this stuff was on FM radio. Yay punk, and yay independent labels.

Usual sloppy labels

Moxi

Great album, great band, typical emusic to credit it to Mick Ralphs and slot it in among "compilations featuring". A bit like "Abbey Road" by George Harrison ...

Can`t believe this is here!

alsdally

What a great album, I can`t believe it`s on etunes, seeing that so much that`s here from great classic rock bands is live stuff or (worse yet) ``rerecorded and remastered``, that is, a cover. Snap this up before it disappears!

They Say All Music Guide

Bad Company’s 1974 self-titled release stands as one of the most important and accomplished debut hard rock albums from the ’70s. Though hardly visionary, it was one of the most successful steps in the continuing evolution of rock & roll, riding on the coattails of achievement from artists like the Eagles and Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young. From the simple electric guitar lick on “Can’t Get Enough” to the haunting bassline in “Bad Company” and the fast beats of “Movin’ On,” Bad Company exemplified raw rock & roll at its best. Erupting out of an experimental period created by the likes of Pink Floyd, Bad Company signified a return to more primal, stripped-down rock & roll. Even while labelmates Led Zeppelin’s Houses of the Holy and IV featured highly acclaimed, colorful album artwork, Bad Company’s austere black and white record cover stood out in stark contrast. Six years later, AC/DC used the same idea on their smash Back in Black. Throughout the 35-minute album, Paul Rodgers’ mesmerizing and gritty vocals hardly vary in tonal quality, offering a perfect complement to Mick Ralphs’ blues-based guitar work. Several songs include three-chord verses offset by unembellished, distorted choruses, filled rich with Rodgers’ cries. Bad Company is an essential addition to the rock & roll library; clearly influential to ’70s and ’80s hard rock bands like Tom Petty, Lynyrd Skynyrd, and Boston. – Gautam Baksi
