Gillans best, sort of,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Naked Thunder + Toolbox + Cherkazoo (Audio CD)
I must agree with the reviewer who commented Toolbox being split onto two discs. It is disrespectful to the material and to the artist, and should have been on three discs. But, that being said, this is a fine collection of tracks. Naked thunder is Ian Gillans best solo album, featuring the AMAZING Loving on borrowed time and the fantastic No good look. Nothing but the best, Moonshine, and No more cane on the brazos are also worth a listen. The album is very glossy and slick in production, but is actually better for it. Toolbox is also a good effort, but a lot heavier than the Naked thunder and lacks a stand-out track. Cherkazoo is a collection of demo- sounding tracks that are not well produced, but it serves as a curio for Gillan fans. I would have prefered Naked Thunder to have been released on its own with bonus tracks.
