In my view Lord has always been the most interesting member of Deep Purple, and his solo projects prove this. His latest release "Pictured Within" is also brilliant, so I'm actually a little apprehensive as to decide which is now my favourite album of his. "Before I Forget" always used to be my fave, but I think I'd just be sounding too nostalgic if I'd still say that. In all fairness, "P.W." probably is his best and most perfect work so far, but the CD I'm reviewing here, "B.I.F.", does contain a track I wouldn't hesitate a second to describe as the most beautiful melody he's ever composed: "For A Friend". -This lovely tune was for some reason left off the original LP, no doubt for lack of space, otherwise I just can't apprehend why. (-It certainly would've deserved to be on there instead of a pretty trashy song like "Hollywood Rock 'N' Roll", or even a lesser quality in sound would've been preferable to me.) There's also a nice long interview with Lord on this CD, done at the time of the vinyl version back in '82 when he was still with Whitesnake. Highly recommended release; now more than ever.

Though this album is definitely not the best amongst Lord's solo LPs (meaning without Deep Purple) and it lacks real coherence in selection, it still contains certain tracks that would be a shame to miss. The disk features everything from the kitsch-ballad style of Richard Clayderman through a nice remake of Bach's famous Toccata and Fugue to certain really fantastic and original works. For Lord fans it is a must to have this record in their collection, and also a challenging adventure to take, but for those who are just about to taste his art this album should be a taboo. Try Sarabande instead!

Jon Lord in eclectic but unclassical mode. A nice, moody collection of instrumentals and songs from the time when Jon was still with Whitesnake, some of these songs wouldn't have been out of place on a Whitesnake album. Say It's All Right, Where Are You?, Burntwood and Before I Forget are particularly fine. Lot's of help from his Whitesnake colleagues and vocals courtesy of Elmer Gantry, Tony Ashton (we miss you Tone); Jon's always liked gravelly vocalists. Probably not his best solo album, but it's still the one I listen to most often.

Beginning his thirty-five year career as a professional musician in the mid-1960s, the (now) 59 year-old Lord found fame as the keyboard player and Hammond organist with the Kings of 1970s heavy rock, Deep Purple. The band continues in some form today (with Lord still filling the keyboarding role), but its zenith was really in the 1970-1975 period, with enduring tracks like Smoke on the Water, Child in Time, Highway Star and various others.
One always had a nagging sense that the collective musical talent in the group was perhaps far greater than the band's output suggested, a theory reinforced by the superior legacy of rivals Led Zeppelin and by the subsequent solo/band efforts of members like Lord, David Coverdale and Ritchie Blackmore, Purple's lead guitarist and founder of Rainbow.
Lord's trademark Jimmy-Smith/rock/blues/soul hybrid organ style and influence on rock keyboard playing have been huge and whilst lacking the 'look at me' technical virtuousity of contemporaries Keith Emerson and Rick Wakeman, became the archetypical Hammond sound in rock, adding significant texture, lustre and depth to Purple's heavy rock chording and giving the band one of the definitive sounds of 1970s rock.
Lord's mid-and-post Purple career has taken the form of a long stint in Whitesnake and successive solo efforts, like Before I Forget, Sarabande, Windows, his theme to Granada TV's Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady and most recently, Pictured Within (Virgin Classics, 1997).
His solo work takes an entirely different journey to his mainstream career, hinting strongly at the classical roots in his student-classical background and encompassing a particularly English-country melodic sense.
