Boz Burrell, Ian Wallace and Mel Collins were headed to join Alexis Korner shortly to record an album as Snape, so they had no worries (Fripp was outnumbered anyway).
Burrell, brave soul that he was, gave it his best, but neither his voice nor the loopy lyrics of Sinfield, who was thankfully about to be out of the picture, ever quite matched up in any convincing way.

Boz proved himself to be an incredibly nice guy, laid-back and fun to talk to.

 Elephant Talk: Live at Summit Studios 1972   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-02)
Boz Burrell, although tenative at times on Bass and Vocals is also quite good.
Boz's efforts were admirable considering how little time he'd been playing these pieces, but a stronger bassist could have made them really soar.
Of course this means no disrespect to Boz, who went on to great success, getting paid milliions of dollars to play the bass anyway in one of the more popular rock bands of the '70s.

Chris Stainton was acknowledged in large print on the album cover for his keyboards.
Boz Burrell (King Crimson, Alexis Korner, Bad Company et al.), Bobby Tench (Jeff Beck Group et al.), and Tim Hinkley (Bo Street Runners, Jody Grind, Alexis Korner et al.) all played in Chapman/Whitney's Streetwalkers and were involved in the Hinkley's Heroes jam band, which Mike Patto was also involved with.
The three are only listed in small print on the record label, so their contributions to "Bloodletting" are unclear -- likely just backing vocals and minor instrumentation.

 Rolling Stone : Bad Company: Straight Shooter : Music Reviews
Among the members of Bad Company, singer Paul Rodgers and drummer Simon Kirke witnessed the collapse of Free, guitarist Mick Ralphs witnessed the collapse of Mick Ralphs in Mott the Hoople and bassist Boz Burrell participated in King Crimson's stagnation.
In the aftermath of their extraordinarily popular debut LP of last year, Bad Company appears determined not to fall into the traps of any of those groups.
Boz has expanded his bass realm and, naturally enough, drummer Kirke has followed suit.

All of Bad Company's members did their time in well-respected and successful British rock groups before uniting: lead vocalist Paul Rodgers and drummer Simon Kirke of Free, bassist Boz Burrell of King Crimson and guitarist Mick Ralphs of Mott the Hoople.
After the members of Free parted ways, Rodgers set out to start a new band, where he could incorporate the minimalist style of Free with a blues feel.
The two recruited Kirke and Boz Burrell, formerly of King Crimson and dubbed themselves Bad Company in 1973.

 search.com - Paul Rodgers - Search.com Reference
Rodgers is probably best known for his role as the lead singer in Free and Bad Company (with Mick Ralphs, Simon Kirke, Boz Burrell), and the hits "All Right Now", "Feel Like Makin' Love," "Rock Steady," "Rock 'n Roll Fantasy," and "Shooting Star" still get major play on classic rock radio.
After an acrimonious break-up (reportedly, Rodgers - who has a fl belt in martial arts - was involved in a rather one-sided physical altercation with bass player Burrell), various incarnations of the band have toured, mostly without Rodgers' participation.
In the early '80s, it was rumoured that he would sing with The Rossington Collins Band (made of up the survivors of Lynyrd Skynyrd), but the pairing never came off.
