Formed in 1973, Bad Company went onto define classic rock as we know it with a string of hit singles throughout the 70’s and 80’s. Songs such as “Feel Like Making Love,” “Shooting Star” and “Bad Company” are still staples on every classic rock station in the country. Live at Wembley is a homecoming of sorts for the band as it features original members, Paul Rodgers, Mick Ralphs and Simon Kirke recorded in 2010 on the tail end of the band’s reunion tour in their home country, the U.K.

An Evening With Frank Zappa During Which The Torture Never Stops is the latest release from Eagle Rock Entertainment. This time out, the performance is Frank Zappa live on Halloween Night in 1981 at the Palladium Theatre in New York City. I have been a Zappa fan for about as long as I can remember and I was surprised to receive this disc in the mail because believe it or not, I was actually in attendance for this specific performance back in 1983.
