I won't lie, this was a Deep Purple album that took a long time to truly become a classic in my mind. But, listening to it the last few months I've really grown to enjoy such songs as "Strange Kind of Woman" (especially the Made in Japan version, love Gillian mimicing the guitar!) "Anyone's Daughter" has also managed to find a place stuck in my head off and on the last month.

Now, I've read lukewarm reviews of this disc, what do you guys think about it?

I always dug this disc... It has that loose, blues-rock jam feel.

Fireball is a great tune... Kind of like Highway Star meets Radar Love... 8)

No No No has that killer groove for RB to jam over... That solo is just plain trippy.

Strange Kind Of Woman is a DP classic... It's always been one of my favorite Gillan-era DP tunes.

Anyone's Daughter is a Dylan/Grateful Dead-inspired Southern folk jam... extra greasy... :wink:

The Mule is a trippy little psychadelic number. It always reminds me of kicking back on the hood of my car drinking brews in the woods with a bunch of my friends... This is the perfect example of the kind of tune that would be playing in my stereo... :B

Fools is one of Gillan's best songs... period. Without songs like this, there would have been no "Machine Head." I love this jam... especially the cool little violin-sounding guitar break. Eat your heart out, Pagey... 8)

No One Came is another 60's carryover track (a la Cream). Great rhythm section on this one.

I oughta review this disc... Hey, wait... I think I just did... :P

Not enough hours in my day... and I just finished the semester.

New semester picks up next week... :x

I'm out of town this weekend for my older daughter's graduation.

I've got tons of CDs to make for various people.

I've been out all weekend shopping and going out to eat. During the semesters, I tend to lose some family time, which I try to make up for when I get done with finals.

I've actually got two different reviews half-written... but I haven't had the time to clean them up.

I'll try to flesh out what I wrote here into a full review... hopefully, tomorrow evening. My wife doesn't know it yet... but I'm going NOWHERE after work tomorrow. Period. :lol:

Unless she really insists... :P

I need more disability time... :lol:

I just prepped this one... I'll move it to the top of the heap since I've already gotten a taste for the tunes... :lol:

It's been a long time since I've busted this one out of mothballs.
