Fireball was kind of a sandwich album, wasn't it? Pretty tepid compared to what came before and after.

Actually I was kidding, I don't really want any Mk. I or Mk III stuff on there. Put "Child in Time" and "Space Truckin'" (Made in Japan version)(thus giving me "Mandrake Root" for all intents and purposes anyway)(as well as whole lot of extra music!) on there instead.

Can i just take the time here to say that Dreammare by Uriah Heep is the coolest song that i have listened to in the last 48 hours. Oh, and i need a new copy of Look At Yourself. Okay, Purple fans, resume listing.

"Dreammare" has a great, crunchy guitar sound and a great wah-ed out solo by Box, yes it is true!

and to think some people still believe that they were all extended keyboard solos and dragon-worship. Hah!

I also like "Lay Down Stay Down" -- the Coverdale stuff isn't too bad.

"Fireball was kind of a sandwich album, wasn't it? Pretty tepid compared to what came before and after."

Other than the country tune, which is more out of place and goofy than horrible, I think this album is as good as 'In Rock'. The studio outtakes are also pretty good on the Fireball deluxe reissue.

Songs that sound alike: Flight of the Rat and the bridge to Sabbath's Under the Sun. Exactly the same riff. I wonder if Gillan needles Iommi about that.

Black Night
Fireball
Demon's Eye

No One Came might slip in there maybe

For the record, best version of Black Night I've heard is on the Singles and EPs collection, all of the others sound kind of murky. But goddamn what a song. And that organ solo where it sounds like the speakers are tearing through the cabinet...

Anyone know why Rod Evans gets to be in the hall of fame, but not Nick Simper?

(Also the header image they're using features Joe Lynn Turner, who wasn't inducted either whoooooops)

Such a weird organization. It's not like there were a million members of Deep Purple, if the band gets in why not induct every member of the band? Who cares? Who are these grown children making phone calls saying, "nah, Joe Lynn Turner doesn't get to be in the hall of fame, or Tommy Bolin rest his soul." Who are these weirdos?

I really like the Bolin record. He's no Blackmore, and he sounds like trash on Blackmore-era songs (the solos anyway) but the record is great, better than Stormbringer I think
