PETER SELLERS & PETER SELLERS
in the hilarious coni&dy that all
your friends have boen laughing about!
of Bad Co.
By ED WILLIAMS
I was driving down the road with one
hand on the wheel and one hand on the
FM tuner, in search of some good,
heavy rock V roll.
Suddenly the guitar riffs I sought
appeared. The song was already kicking
out full force by the time I caught up
The fuzz-toned guitar I thought Fd
heard a million times had a fresher
sound, but when the vocalist intoned,
"It's all part of my rock 'n roll fantasy,
I knew I was indeed listening to Paul
Rogers and Bad Company.
But hadn't all of the group died of an
overdose of commercialism and
complacency? Weren't they too old for
rock 'n' roll? Couldn't Mick Ralphs only
learn three chords, starving the band of
All of my fears were put to rest as the
disc jockey announced Bad Company
has bounced back with a new album,
Desolation Angels is possibly the best
album Bad Company has produced.
The mixture of heavyweight rock and
standard easy-electric ballads that
always accompany a Bad Company
album are' present and are as ear
catching and melodic as ever.
Paul Rogers now plays guitar as well
as handling the vocals, performing
superbly in both roles. Rogers has kept
his tendency to oooh and aah
throughout his numbers, but now he
sticks to hitting the right notes at the
right time, as evidenced by the songs

Rogers also wails out a top-notch
scream vocal on the hard-driving
"Lonely For Your Love" with an
urgency that assures the reader he has
been lonely for a long time.
Desolation Angels is interesting and
varied. "Crazy Circles" is an acoustic
song with a flamenco-style guitar solo
and a flighty, foot-tapping beat. "Oh,
Atlanta" begins with a harmonica blast,
interspersed with guitar riff cuts.
"Lonely for Your Love" immediately
struck me as a close cousin to "Can't Get
Enough," the group's first single hit. It's
pure rock, no frills.
The most interesting cut is "Take the
Time," basically an acoustic tune that
flows for the first few bars, then turns
abruptly to a staccato rhythm chorus,
tied together by slide guitar.
I'm glad I sneaked some money out of
my book budget to purchase Desolation
Angels. I may end up a couple of books
short this summer session, but at least
Til have a great album to enjoy long
after I check out my grades, no matter ,
how depressing they might be.
