Format: Audio CD
Released in 1988, and bought by me soon after it hit the shelves, this side-project of Messrs Gillan and Glover has aged well, I would say. Despite the use of synths, played in the '80s style, there is enough instrumentation, particularly brass, to prevent the sound being rooted in that decade. Naughty of this reissue to claim 'Cayman Island', 'Purple People Eater', and 'Chet' as bonus tracks, because they WERE on the original CD issue, being bonus only to the vinyl and cassette versions. For those who had yet to get a CD player, those tracks were B-sides to singles lifted from the album. They are my least favourite tracks on the CD, but it was nice to have them there.

Gillan and Glover never toured the album, but I did catch them perform 'Dislocated' and 'Via Miami' on Channel 4's 'Friday Night Live', and Gillan played 'I Thought No' during his subsequent, enforced hiatus from Purple. I prefer this, as a whole, to Gillan's subsequent solo works, to be honest: give it a try.

This album is one of those overlooked/forgotten Deep Purple offshoots. I love this album very much. It has a relaxed, having a laugh vibe to it and there is a definate reggae influence. The songs are not too serious and they are very very catchy. I often find myself singing them at work or in the bath. To anyone who doesn't own this album, the songs will probably be unfamiliar because most of them have never been performed live, but if you are a Purple fan, you should buy this. The best tracks are Clouds and rain, Evil eye, She took my breath away, Via miami and I can't dance to that. The new version includes the b-sides from the singles released, so it is a full package. Definately worth a listen with a glass of wine.

Didn't know what to expect, but I absolutely love this! Keep listening to this in the car and it's a great mixture of blues, ballads, rock & roll, reggae - the common theme is a 'feel-good' happy atmosphere throughout and Gillan on top-form.
