This review is from: Naked Thunder + Toolbox + Cherkazoo (Audio CD)
This collection covers 3 different phases in Ian's career. The biggest suprise is Cherkazoo from the early 1970's, a very different vibe to his Deep Purple material. A very chilled, psychedelic sound this was recorded as a Musical, a story thread running through the song titles. Recorded by whoever was around at the time, with some tracks co-written by Roger Glover. Toolbox is from 1991 & has a stripped down hard rock sound from the trio of musicians. I saw Ian touring this album in a run down cinema/ bingo hall in Worcester. The biggest suprise was the way Len Haze (from Y'n'T) pounded his drumkit. This just leaves Naked Thunder from 1990, a very polished sound, but probably the one selection from these three that you will play least. This is another excellent re-issue from Edsel & comes with a detailed booklet. Excellent value.
