AllMusic Review by

The idea behind Rhino UK’s 2010 collection The Very Best of Free & Bad Company is a very good one: round up all the big hits that Paul Rodgers sang with the two bands during the ‘70s. Unfortunately, the disc overlooks a pretty major one: it doesn’t have “Bad Company,” one of his defining songs, an omission that doesn’t sink this collection, but surely hampers it since it’s one tune that casual fans will want. They’ll be satisfied by the rest of this collection, though, since “Can’t Get Enough,” “Feel Like Makin’ Love,” “Shooting Star,” “The Hunter,” and “All Right Now” are all here, and that might seem like enough until it becomes clear what’s missing.
