Bad Company - 'Rock 'n' Roll Fantasy' (Live at Red Rocks)

I get up in the morning and it's just another day
Pack up my belongings, I've got to get away.
Jump in to a taxi and the time is gettin' tight
I go to keep on movin' I got a show tonight

And I'm movin' on, movin' on from town to town
Movin' on, baby, yeah I'm never touchin' the ground. Yeah.

I take it to the ticket there's a half a dollar boat
headin' for the bordengate I'm feelin' pretty low
Fifteen minutes later, I'm sittin' on my plane
fastened in my safety belt I'm takin off again

And I'm movin' on, movin' on from town to town
Movin' on, baby, yeah I'm never touchin' the ground.

And I'm movin' on, movin' on from town to town
Movin' on, I can't seem to stop now.
ω I got to move on, move on from town to town.
I got to move on, I never seem to slow down.
Oh, I got to move on, move on from town to town.
I got to move on, I never seem to slow down.

Ο δίσκος των Bad Company "Live at Red Rocks"
Bad Company: ένα από τα σημαντικότερα Βρετανικά (και όχι μόνο) rock / hard rock συγκροτήματα. Σχηματίσθηκε το μακρινό 1973 και συνεχίζει (με... διαλείμματα) μέχρι τις ημέρες μας. Ο τελευταίος τους στουντιακός δίσκος μας γυρίζει στο 1996 ("Stories Told & Untold"). Στην τρέχουσα χιλιετία κυκλοφορούν μόνο live albums και συλλογές.

Ο πιο πρόσφατος "ζωντανά" ηχογραφημένος δίσκος τους είναι το album "Live at Red Rocks". Ανάμεσα στα τραγούδια του δίσκου και η live εκτέλεση του τραγουδιού "Rock 'n' Roll Fantasy" (από την εμφάνιση των Bad Company στο Αμφιθέατρο Red Rocks του Κολοράντο στις 15 Μαΐου 2016), το οποίο πρωτακούσαμε το μακρινό 1979 στον δίσκο της Βρετανικής μπάντας "Desolation Angels"...

Bad Company: «"Rock 'n' Roll Fantasy" is a song by English hard rock supergroup Bad Company. The track was written by vocalist Paul Rodgers, and released as the first single from the group's fifth studio album Desolation Angels.

One of the most acclaimed bands of the classic rock era, England’s Bad Company has put its indelible stamp on rock ‘n’ roll with a straight-ahead, no-frills musical approach that has resulted in the creation of some of the most timeless rock anthems ever. Led by the incomparable singer and songwriter Paul Rodgers, arguably the finest singer in rock ‘n ‘ roll and a huge songwriting talent.

Formed in 1973, Bad Company came to life when Rodgers was looking to start anew after the disintegration of his legendary band Free. His powerhouse vocals and songwriting were a main ingredient during Free’s impressive five-year run; a period of time that saw the release of seven extremely influential albums that featured Free’s minimalist blues-rock approach. Included among Free’s dynamic body of work is the 1970 smash, “All Right Now,” one of the most recognizable rock anthems ever recorded. Lyrics and melody by Rodgers. He was Free’s main songwriter.

Boz Burrell, Mick Ralphs, Paul Rodgers, Simon Kirke -Photo by Carl Dunn-Rodgers had met Mott The Hoople guitarist Mick Ralphs and after jamming together and listening to new songs that Ralphs had penned and songs that Rodgers had penned, Ralphs made the decision to leave Mott and form a new band with Rodgers.

The duo recruited former King Crimson bassist/vocalist Boz Burrell, added drummer Simon Kirke and Rodgers Christened the band Bad Company. Rodgers’ brought in Led Zeppelin manager Peter Grant and Bad Company became the first band signed to Zeppelin’s Swan Song label.

I had to fight to get the management and the record company to accept the name Bad Company,” explains Rodgers. “They thought it was a terrible name. Peter Grant called a meeting and the band met beforehand. I told them that I had been through this before with Free as Island Records had wanted to call us the Heavy Metal Kids. We agreed to go in and tell them that we were going to be called Bad Company and that was the end of the story. As soon as Peter heard how strongly I felt about the name, he became very supportive and together we turned the record company around.

Bad Company was an instant hit worldwide. Their 1974 self-titled debut went platinum five times over and featured the smash hits, “Can’t Get Enough,” (a Number One single) and “Movin’ On” along with electrifying rock anthems like “Ready For Love,” “Rock Steady” and the title track.

Because of their association with Grant, a unique opportunity arose for them when it came time to record that classic first album in November 1973. “We were bursting at the seams to get into the recording studio,” says Rodgers.

Led Zeppelin had a mobile studio together at Headley Grange all ready to go, but they were delayed for two weeks. Peter told us that if we were quick, we could probably use the studio to lay a couple of tracks down. We steamed in and put the entire album down. Headley Grange was very atmospheric. We had the drums set up in the hallway and the guitars in the living room. We did interesting experiments like placing the vocal microphone way out in the fields for the song ‘Bad Company.’ We recorded that track late at night underneath a fall moon.”»
