    Totally agree!
    But nonetheless I think, this should be the other way around: The name of the band is BAD COMPANY. The name of the album is Bad Co. ...

          But how does it sound?…. 🤔

          Close your eyes as the armata of percussion begin to flood. Your listening space becomes the deepest darkest ocean. Your galleon plows the waves as though hitting stone walls. Cymbals crash with lightning like force and decay off into the farthest distance imaginable. Cannons ignited & balls hurdling through space as Simon Kirke smashes his perfectly tuned toms & kick drum. Plowing through yet another impossible wave 🌊 your hit in the face by the salty spray of Paul Rogers voice bursting through your speakers in perfect image!

          Yeah it’s that good! 😂

            Wow, this kicks in hard and bluesy from track one. Great open dynamic rock with a gritty vocal texture and a rolling Little Feat style. This original pressing really opens up the sound and lets the bass lock into the drums.

              Probably the silliest thing on discogs saying this is by Bad Co.

                  Please note that this album is wrongly listed under Bad Co (described as UK Drum & Bass producers owners of labels: BC Recordings, BC Authorised, BC Halo, BC Presents..., Square One). There is a note clarifying that this is not the 70s British hard rock band, which is listed as Bad Co (3), but the album still appears as part of its discography. The album is also rightly listed under Bad Co (3) but should be removed of Bad Co listing
