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).

Fireball, on a first listen isn't really that impressive compared to other dp albums. Just listen to it again...and it hits you. Everything about this album just works and it sounds fantastic...covering hard rock to soft almost ballad like...to genius individual performances. Ian Gillan himself claimed this to be his favourite of all purple albums and based on his performance I can see why. It's a real shame there isn't more of this sort of stuff out these days.

Between 1970’s iconic ‘Deep Purple in Rock’ and 1972’s polished ‘Machine Head’ lies this often overlooked gem of British hard rock music from the Golden Age.

‘Fireball’ sees DP2 maturing into a more finely-honed quintet with less urgency and a slightly more melodious sound. The music here has more light and shade, the result not to the liking of some contemporary fans, but you have to say that in retrospect ‘Fireball’ is actually more listenable and varied than its gut-busting predecessor. From the high-octane opening track the pace slows a little to deliver two less frantic riff-based numbers ‘No No No’ and ‘Demon’s Eye’, then deviates into what has been described as a “Country & Western number”, ‘Anyone’s Daughter’.

The 25th Anniversary release is once again remastered by Peter Mew and sounds great, offering bonus material from the sessions including a storming 1996 remix of the single ‘Strange Kind of Woman’. The CD is presented in a jewel case inside a cardboard sleeve, with a long essay on history of the album and sleeve notes penned by Roger Glover in the 28-page booklet.

If you’re just getting to know the Purps but don’t know ‘Fireball’, give it a listen.

When this album was launched in '71, the band was accused by John Peel of playing formula rock. It's a shame if any rock fan's first exposure to this album was influenced by this opinion, as it's totally offside. Fireball was, and still is a CLASSIC. Okay, so there are no Speed King or Hard Lovin' Man type scores on the album: what IS on the album, however, is an excellent mixture of hard rock (Fireball, Strange Kinda Woman),bloody good songs (No No No, Demon's Eye).We've all been there at some point in our lives where our parents took exception to a partner we had on tow at the time (Anyone's Daughter). The (old) 2nd side of the album, however, in my mind, ranks the score at 5 stars. The Mule, Fools and No one Came take DP on to another plateau altogether. Close your eyes and you could be listening to Pink Floyd or Zeppelin. DP elevate themselves from being merely an excellent hard rock band to leading edge prog rock. May be John Peel really meant Formula 1 Rock! It's a must for any music lover's collection.
