Bad Company – Desolation Angels (1979)
Desolation Angels is Bad Company’s fifth studio album released on March 17, 1979. The album’s title came from the novel of the same name by Jack Kerouac.
It was recorded at Ridge Farm Studios in Surrey, England in late 1978 and in my opinion, is the last strong album by Bad Company, mostly because it contains their last major hit, “Rock ‘n’ Roll Fantasy,” written by Paul Rodgers and inspired by a guitar synthesizer riff that Rodgers had come up with.
‘Early in the morning’ though (track 5, side 1) is my personal favourite on the album.
