    When playing music from a flash drive in the USB port in my car, the media screen displays the album cover art, song title, album title, and performer. Sometimes the stars align:

    I saw them around 1975 or 1976. $17.10 for a ticket. That was about three times the going rate for concerts back then. Worth every penny. Mick Ralphs busted out a guitar solo and did the shuffling thing with his feet where he was going sideways back and forth while he was soloing. He looked like some kind of mechanical man, it was so fast. Great concert!

    their 1st album is one of the best. as much as we have all heard it, I have never gotten tired of it. i'm always happy to hear "can't get enough of your love" one more time. they got it right, for all time.

    Good band- almost heavy but you can hear the singing and the guitar playing is exceptional.

    Saw them at the fabulous Forum when I was a pipsqueak. Those were the days. A friend in middle school's dad was an A&R guy at A&M records.

    We saw just about every rock band that came thru Los Angeles at the Forum for one year in 1979 courtesy of his dad. I don't know what my mom was thinking, but god love her for letting me go to all those shows. Those were the days. A part of my youth that I will never forget and was so lucky to experience.

    Got them all on vinyl, stuff like this is what a record player was made for. Amazes me that you can pick up a vintage example of any of their albums on eBay for a fraction of the price of a vintage Stones or Zep album. Underrated if you ask me.

    Great band and one of the best rock singers ever with Paul Rodgers. We have a couple of BC songs in our setlist like Honey Child, Shooting Star or Rock and Roll fantasy.

    That happens when you play the first Black Sabbath album as well:

    Name of the band: Black Sabbath
    Name of the album: Black Sabbath
    Name of the song: Black Sabbath

    Loved those first couple of Bad Co. records... I remember saving up the 3.66 (plus tax) and riding the bus and walking in the rain to get the shooting star record... and then being much distressed when the glue on the album cover had not adequately adhered (I was fierce about taking care of my records) and carefully glueing it back...

    Thanks for the thread... I can remember so much about that day just from your prompt! very cool!

    I saw Paul Rodgers open for Jeff Beck summer before last. That guy is amazing. He's 70, but he sounded just like he did back in the 70's! Incredible voice.

    My 2013 Toyota Tacoma plays USB MP3 from a flash stick, but doesn't sort well, or show album art, but it works for playing USB MP3's via flash stick or music/phone via BT connect to my phone.

    Bad Co 10 from 6 is one of the albums on the phone and stick.
