The title of Stories Told & Untold refers to the fact that this contains some old songs, and some new -- but these aren't old recordings, mind you. Instead, it's the 1996 lineup of Bad Company, featuring Robert Hart on vocals, who also contributes several originals to the lineup as well. Those originals naturally aren't as good as the hits, but they're reliable enough, and the band sounds pretty good, even if the production winds up being a bit too slick. Certainly this is one for the diehards, the ones that do want to hear the new band playing the old songs (not the ones that would get angry about that very thing); and while it's not one they'll put on a lot, it's not bad as far as latter-day platters from arena rock veterans go.
