    I can't stop playing....Deal With The Preacher.

    What a groovy, funky song.

    Like someone said, the first album like Bostonís first defined the genres to come. Seagull reminds me of an underappreciated ballad like Soldier of Fortune on the Stormbringer album.....
    Heavy radio play.


    The bass in Moving On is excellent both in production and playing

    That 2cd anthology which came out in the 90s is well worth having, has a few (then) unreleased tracks and B sides.

    Mick Ralphs is always worth a listen but they did become more and more like Foreigner during the 80's. I thought the best record Bad Co. did during this period was the one with Robert Hart on vocals. That had some good stuff on it.

    I saw them live with Hart and he sounded very similar to Rogers. Howe had a very different voice, but still very good.

    Just saw Bad Co. earlier this month at the Ohio State Fair. Foghat opened. It was like 1975 all over again!!!

    Paul's voice is still amazing!!! My favorite albums by them are the incredible debut and Desolation Angels. Great stuff.

    I have everything by Free, even the 5Cd box called Songs From Yesterday, - worth to have, there are some unreleased material, and the new mix sounds great. I recommend to continue with Free - get their first, and their last albums ( that's Tons of Sobs and Heartbreaker). If you would like them, then get the rest of the Free. Bad Company's first 4 are essential, as been said by many, and their live albums from 2002 to 2011 are great too.
