No we can't. they had that ability to write songs that sounded totally heavy in some spots and then drifted into singing a quiet melodic middle part that was perfected on their Not Fragile album along with their Four Wheel Drive one!
A very stunning band to see live. I think some of their work is going to be reissued like the Not Fragile album!

Oh, sorry I didn't see this post until just now.

Their popularity here in this area was really limited to the 70s era.
Holy Water in '90, with Brian Howe on vocals is half decent.
Bad Company was one of the main blues rock bands here in the northeastern part of the United States during the 70s. Then you had blues rock bands like Aerosmith and so on.
I get the impression that Bad Company was never that popular in the UK. At least, not as popular as they we're here in the US during the 70s anyway.
Free, seems to be more popular of the two bands in the UK.

One of the worst shows I ever saw in the '70's would easily be Bad Company (Running With the Pack tour, the only reason I knew that was the gigantic banner behind the stage). Sooooo boring, and at the end of EVERY SONG the stage lights went down, then came back up a different color. It was so predictable that by the end of the show, my brother and I laughed out loud & it became the only entertainment derived from their 90 minute set.

We went to see the opening act, Kansas, whom I loved as a young man but grew out of in my later years (certainly by the '90's I'd lost all interest). That being said, their energy and effort blew Bad Company out of the water. In fact I wish Bad Company were *in* the water, maybe they'd have drowned.

I haven't heard that name Badfinger in decades, I'm glad you reminded me. I listend to Baby Blue on YouTube. Are there any other songs by them, you might suggest I listen to?

The problem with Bad Company was that they were quite simply a supergroup that were strictly in it for the money and had Peter Grant as their manager. Apart from a classic debut album, the rest of their discography from what I've heard is just bland commercial hard rock that was usually done a whole load better by numerous other bands, a shame really when you consider the talent in the band. They kind of reminded me of Jefferson Starship in the 1970s again multi-talented artists from their time as Jefferson Airplane, but could they could hardly muster anything any good throughout the 1970s.

Free were popular for a time in the 1970s in the UK but nosedived after their album Highway flopped, but they never reached the commercial heights of Led Zeppelin their nearest musical rival, and occupied the next strata down with their other bluesy counterparts Humble Pie.

I like a number of Badfinger songs, but I don't think that they ever put out one great album though.
