Echoing C. H. Turnbull's Review,
This review is from: Glory Road (Audio CD)
Sometimes you come to write about something, be it a CD or a book for example, and words fail you.
This is one of those occasions for me! An absolutely brillant album, buy it, listen to it, enjoy it! It's been a very long time since music like this was around. Gillan at their very best!
The second disc is humourous in places (music aside) and definitely for Gillan Fans Only, but to be honest, at this price, you would pay twice the price for disc one alone! Glory Road is THE Gillan album - if you don't buy any of the others, do yourself a favour and buy this one.
I've given five stars only because Amazon won't let me give it ten!

How very right you are and I'm amazed to discover from your post that it, in its entirety, is available on CD. This happened as a result of a discussion I was having with one of my colleagues at work today. We started with early 1980s American Rock but somehow moved on to Deep Purple and then 'solo' Gillan - it is Friday after all!
It remains a quintessential album of its time! I'm only going to disappoint you in one way; I have the original 'Virgin' 2-LP vinyl version of this. Glory Road is V2171 and the bonus 12" Gillan - For Fans Only is VDJ 32. The cover is not gate-fold but the two LPs within it have separate and quite different illustrated inner sleeves.
