If you like Deep Purple but don't own Fireball, you are in for a real treat. This album is a hard rock masterpiece and Ian Gillan would totally agree with me. It's a shame that Fireball has been kind of forgotten about, it clearly holds up against In Rock and Machine Head. One nice thing about this album is, besides the great material, you won't be sick of ANY of the songs, because "classic rock" radio ignores this great stuff, just blows me away.

Anyhow, if you're just starting to collect their albums, maybe you already have Machine Head, this one won't disappoint. One of the great hard rock albums of the seventies.

Highlights: Fireball, Strange Kind of Woman, Anyone's Daughter, Fools and No One Came.

There can't be many men of a certain age who look at the cover of this album with our five hairy reprobates fireballing it upwards into some kind of galactic Hard Rock Nirvana - and feel the warm buzz of riffage humming in their pacemakers. Deep Purple's "Fireball" - even the name makes me tingle. And this rather cool and cheap little CD reissue featuring the classic Mark II line-up of the band will only make that itch to annoy the neighbours even more tempting. Let's detail the stubborn mule, the judge's daughter and the demon's eye...

Released October 1996 on EMI CDDEEPP 2 (Barcode 724385371127) - Tracks 1 to 7 make up the album "Fireball" originally released on vinyl LP September 1971 in the UK on Harvest SHVL 793. The album was released a month earlier in the USA on Warner Brothers BS 2564 with a different track list on Side 1. Replacing "Demon's Eye" as track 3 is "Strange Kind Of Woman" - issued only as a 7" single in the UK on Harvest HAR 5033 in February 1971 (see also 9 for it's non-album B-side).

Tracks 8 to 16 are Bonuses:
8 is "Strange Kind Of Woman" A-Side Remix 96
9 is "I'm Alone" - the non-album B-side of "Strange Kind Of Woman" released as a 7" single in the UK 12 February 1971 on Harvest HAR 5033
10 is "Freedom" - an Album outtake
11 is "Slow Train" - an Album outtake
12 is "Demon's Eye" Remix 96
13 is "The Noise Abatement Society Tapes - Midnight In Moscow, Robin Hood, William Tell"
13 is "Fireball" Take 1 (Instrumental)
14 is "Backwards Piano"
15 is "No One Came" Remix 96

With a total playing time of 78:46 minutes - you certainly get value for money and the outer stippled-effect card slipcase mimics the feel of the original gatefold album cover (a nice touch).

Format: Audio CD
Deep Purple's fifth studio album (and second under the now famous MKII line up) Fireball is an absolute stunner of an album, unfortunately underrated being sandwiched as it is between the classic In Rock and Machine Head albums.
For high quality, energetic and interesting rock music with amazing musicanship, Fireball is a shining example.

The album opening title track 'Fireball,' is a fast and frantic number with brilliant guitar and keyboard soloing from Ritchie Blackmore and Jon Lord, and a great drum performance from Ian Paice, overall one of the best songs in the band's repertoire.

The album is more varied than its predecessor, investigating various territories, from proggier numbers like 'Fools,' to the almost country 'No One's Daughter,' and the almost psychadelic drum showpiece 'The Mule.' Perhaps this variety is the reason the album wasn't as well received as the focused and direct In Rock album, but it definitely adds to the overall experience in hindsight as the band couldn't simply retread old ground anyway.

Stand Out tracks include the aforementioned title track and 'Fools,' as well as the rocking 'No One Came,' which ends the original album really well.

If you like Deep Purple you will definitely want to try out Fireball, a fine album indeed and more than worthy of a place in your collection.

The 25th anniversary edition expands on the original with a detailed set of linear notes about the making of the album, some remixes and alternative takes as well as the inclusion of single 'Strange Kind Of Woman,' and the very enjoyable album outtakes 'I'm Alone,' 'Freedom,' and 'Slow Train,' all of which expand on the album's rock side.

Sandwiched between 'In Rock' and 'Machine Head,' arguably DP's most popular studio albums, 'Fireball' is more ambitious than both, but not as good as either. Class will show, however, and it's still a great album. The title track stands out as a reminder of what the band do best, namely high-tempo hard rock. Thereafter, they probe a surprising array of styles. 'No No No' is a mid-paced song, which Ian Gillan's vocal enlivens.
'Demon's Eye' is stronger, a suitably malevolent slice of hard rock. 'Anyone's Daughter' is the big surprise, sounding like the something you'd hear on Bob Dylan's 'Bringing It All Back Home,' complete with amusing lyric. I like this song, though it doesn't sound as if it belongs here. 'The Mule' is a minor masterpiece, full of exotic, almost psychedelic touches. The guv'nor on this track though is Ian Paice, whose circular rhythms give the track its shape. 'Fools' is a bit routine in places, but is punctuated by some eerie passages and 'No One Came' sees DP going back more to basics. The addition of 'Strange Kind Of Woman' is a major bonus. It might take a little adjusting to, but 'Fireball' is well worth your patience.
