Mick Ralphs discography

Having recorded his first session with the Buddies in 1964, it took Mick Ralphs nearly 20 years to make a solo album ("Take This!" in 1984). He finally left Bad Company in 2001 and has been working as a solo artist since - even teaming up with Ian Hunter for a short UK tour in 2002. This discography details Mick's solo career.

Comments: the CD version has different vocals, and a less clear sound than the vinyl counterpart. The reason for this is not clear even to Ralphs - two separate masters perhaps?

Comments: All the songs are new Mick Ralphs solo recordings, except "Hideaway" which is a previously unreleased Bad Company live recording (from the 1999 USA tour).

Comments: "Budgie" is a unreleased Bad Company track from 1977. "Can't Get Enough" is a 1970 demo of the song that went on to become Bad Company's biggest hit.
