Item 810 - Bad Company: Bad Co. Catalog 425 (Mar 2014)

Back To Previous Page
(we are no longer accepting bids on this item)
Minimum Bid: $200.00
Sold Price: $967.75 (includes buyer's premium)


Excessively rare double-sided 12″ acetate of Bad Company’s 1974 self-titled debut album, featuring all songs that appear on the final release as well as one omitted track, arranged in a vastly different running order from the final record. The songs on side one, as they appear on this acetate: ‘Can’t Get Enough,’ ‘Don’t Let Me Down,’ ‘Bad Company,’ and ‘Ready for Love.’ Side two: ‘Rock Steady,’ ‘The Way I Choose,’ ‘Little Misfortune,’ ‘Seagull,’ and ‘Movin’ On.’ Sides are identified in type on IBC Sound Recording Studios labels with only the name “Paul Rogers [sic]” and indication of side one or two; also bear handwritten notations related to the recording process. In fine condition. Originates from the personal collection of legendary engineer and producer Ron Nevison, who states that this was the first reference lacquer made for the album and, he believes, the only one in existence. At the time, the band was just going by ‘Paul Rodgers’—frequently misspelled because he was still relatively unknown—and they decided to adopt the ‘Bad Company’ moniker from the track on their album. A remarkable piece of history from the birth of the British supergroup. RR Auction COA. Learn more about Ron Nevison.
