In April 2015, Bad Company released deluxe versions of their first two albums, Bad Company (1974) and Straight Shooter (1975) but there has been no discussion of further editions, until now.

On May 26, the band’s next two albums, Run With the Pack (1976) and Burnin’ Sky (1977) will finally come out in deluxe editions. Each set comes with the original album, in a remastered version, on the first disc while the second contains alternate takes, studio jams and other rarities.

Run With the Pack, released in January of 1976, the album went to number 5 in the U.S. and 4 in the U.K. Among the tracks were the singles Young Blood (1976 / #20), a cover of the Coasters hit, and Honey Child (1976 / #47) along with the radio favorite Silver, Blue and Gold.

Burnin’ Sky came out in March of 1977 and was the first Bad Company album to not make the American or British top tens, peaking at 15 and 17 respectively. Only one single from the album became a minor hit, Burnin’ Sky (1977 / #78).
