Bad Company Announce ‘Run With the Pack’ and ‘Burnin’ Sky’ Deluxe Reissues


Bad Company will continue the deluxe reissue series they started two years ago with the release of the next two albums in their catalog.

Run With the Pack, from 1976, and the following year’s Burnin’ Sky will come out on May 26, each with a disc of bonus tracks that includes alternate versions of LP cuts, demos and some previously unreleased songs.

The albums have been remastered from the original production tapes, and have been rounded out with rare versions of many of the same songs that ended up on the records. For example, Run With the Pack includes an extended take of the title track with an alternative vocal; Burnin’ Sky features an early version of “Too Bad” with guitarist Mick Ralphs on vocals.

You can see the track listings for both Deluxe Editions below.

Reissued versions of Bad Company’s first two albums — their self-titled debut from 1974 and 1975’s Straight Shooter — came out in 2015. And like those records, the new reissues will be available on CD, in digital editions and on 180-gram vinyl. (The vinyl versions include most, but not all, of the bonus tracks.)

Both albums were recorded in France, and reached the Top 15. “Young Blood” (a Top 20 cover of the Coasters’ Top 10 hit from 1957) and “Honey Child” were released as singles from Run With the Pack; Burnin’ Sky‘s title track was that LP’s sole charting song, climbing to No. 78.
