Continued from Future Shock

A mere six months elapsed before the arrival of "Double Trouble" with new guitarist Janick Gers in tow. And it shows. A double album with one studio and one live LP, I found the live album almost unlistenable then, and time has not improved it. Considering how good they could be live, it was a major disappointment and time has not improved it any. The studio side, in contrast, has aged better than I would have thought. Sure, Gillan is back to screaming again and there is too much filler - no-one needs to hear 'Hadely Bop Bop', then or now, but get past the histrionic screeching of Janick Gers guitar and there are some decent tunes; 'Sunbeam' and 'Nightmare', in particular, really stand out. The bonuses are inessential here, although at least it means I need never try to play my flexidisc of 'Spanish Guitar' ever again, with the rest being live B-sides for 'Nightmare' and 'Restless'; namely 'Bite The Bullet' and 'On The Rocks', with the rest coming from the free seven inch that came with the 'Trouble' single.

As reissue packages, these are well done, although there is absolutely nothing new or unreleased on offer for the serious collector. But it will save me digging through the crates of vinyl, something that makes life a whole lot easier, and with brief notes from Ian Gillan with each one alongside the lyrics and plentiful photos, Edsel have done a bang up job.

Now, I will admit I have a slight soft spot for Gillan, as they were the first "proper" band I went to see live at the tender age of 13. This was to be their last tour, promoting the "Magic" album with Janick Gers on guitar, and they were (I seem to remember) very good.

I found some of their earlier stuff a little difficult to get into, but this album, Double Trouble was a regular on my record player. The studio side has some great tracks on it, including "Born to kill", which is an absolute epic! Now, you have to appreciate that Gillan were NOT your run of the mill metal band, and as such, you will always get a certain amount of "experimentation". With such a talented keyboard player and song writer in Colin Towns, there are some "different" (?!) moments, which will not appeal to everyone. There are some heavy songs, some more "poppy" songs, and of course, the singles "Nightmare" and "Restless", which are great.

The live side is also pretty good. Quite a lot is from their Reading Festival appearances, and I think captures them pretty well - if my memory serves me correctly!! Faves include "No Easy Way" and "If you believe me", which has some stunning bluesy guitar work on it.

The extras on this re-issued version are for the most part largely forgettable but, I always liked "On the rocks" anyway, so it is worth it for that alone as far as I am concerned.

A good memory of a pretty good band, so if you like Gillan anyway, this is worth shelling out a few quid on.

Yes I'm old enough to remember the original release of this double album and I saw the band on the tour also.
Whenever I listen to this CD it reminds me of the very first time I heard Gillan on The Friday Rock Show and what a great songwriter he is, from a full-on rock blowout to a sweat blues melody all on one disc.
All I can say is this is the CD you should listen to if you want to get a feel of how good this band were in the studio and how they transferred that ability and energy onto the stage.
