Great LIVE album! All the hits are here. Unfortunately, Paul Rogers vocals were better in the origional Bad Company versions but this is really good musically and the vocals are not all that bad either. I saw them play live and they were very, very good. You won't be sorry if you get this CD ... regardless of reviews to the contrary.

"A misnomer is what you're getting here. Paul Rodgers put the "Bad" in Bad Co. with his earthbound, grit-rimmed vocals and climactic lyrical ad-libbing, but once replaced (and I use that term VERY loosely) by pedestrian singer Brian Howe, their shooting star fizzled. This concert cash-in on hits old and new is also minus the rock-steady bottom of bassist Boz Burrell, but Rodgers is the key omission. Better to check out the recent live Bad Co. offering MERCHANTS OF FORTUNE, still featuring only half the original members, but at least one is ex-Free wailer Rodgers. On WHAT YOU HEAR IS WHAT YOU GET, early Bad Co. classics FEEL LIKE MAKIN' LOVE and ROCK 'N ROLL FANTASY still rule over latter day fluff HOW ABOUT THAT and NO SMOKE WITHOUT FIRE, demonstrating how their songwriting also suffered after Paul's exit. As far as classic rock is concerned, this lifeless concert attempt will put you in pretty bad company. RATING: TWO THUDS
BETTER IN PERSON, THAN ON DISK

"Having seen Bad company live, I knew sort of what to expect from this cd, they put on a good show, with good clean sound, but not a lot of action on stage. One would think that the sound would come across on to cd. But it did not. This cd is dull. All songs are honest to the original versions, but they never come across as anything more than a different recording of the orginal. Stick with their studio recordings."
