2.0 out of 5 stars Deep Purple Third Album, 27 April 2009
This review is from: Deep Purple (Audio CD)
Not the greatest quality CD ever produced- has some distortion which makes it sound as if recorded from a well- played vinyl album. Only a couple of tracks are affected and this album is difficult to find on CD.Don,t buy it if you own a reasonable vinyl copy- you will be dissapointed. The cover is very 'bootleggish' too with a superimposed photo of a later line- up of the group including Ian Gillan and Roger Glover (very suspicious)!

5.0 out of 5 stars It'll All Work Out In Boomland, 23 Dec. 2005
This album is, undoubtedly one of the top ten progressive albums of all time. Having reached the age of 50 I can look back and say with total conviction that, had this band stayed together they would have been absolutely enormous. the large number of T2 fans who are still around is a testimony to the power trio to end all power trios. It has, deservedly a massive cult status and should be bought unreservedly. Written descriptions could not pay sufficent tribute to the extremely well- played, clever compositions on offer here.

5.0 out of 5 stars Still sounds great 20 years on!, 1 April 2002
This review is from: Pictures At Eleven (Audio CD)
Coming out in 1983 during the ascendancy of NWOBHM, "Pictures At Eleven" stands the test of time far better than similar contempories but is a very different album from latter Zeppelin issues, clearly intentionally. This, along with excellent drumming from Phil Collins (I have never heard him play better) and the late, great Cozy Powell (who plays here in true Bonham-esque style!) is one of this album's great strengths; coupled with a high quality BIG sound produced by Plant himself. Quality songs, quality musicians, quality sound. Buy it while you can!

4.0 out of 5 stars A "classic" early 70's heavy blues album that missed out., 31 July 2000
This review is from: Barbed Wire Sandwich (Audio CD)
Best known as the former band of Free members Paul Kossoff and Simon Kirke (neither of whom are credited on this album), Black cat Bones were a typical late 60's, early 70's "progressive" blues band in the same mould as Free, Chicken Shack and Ten Years After but slipped into obscurity due to marketing ineptitude and personnel changes. Barbed Wire Sandwich was originally released on on Decca as a mid-priced album noted for its (then fashionable) gruesome cover. The album is well recorded with easily accesable tracks lacking in that ultimate touch of originality.
