Mostly terrible, the worst kind of pretentious warbling white-boy wank.

In Rock has some good moments tho

Mostly bad but i do think Highway Star is one of the great big ROCK songs.

In Rock has some amazing moments! After that, a good compilation does me pretty fine.

Did you ever start a Nino Tempo thread, Ray? My memory is playing tricks on me.

Not me, Ange. Don't remember seeing one, either. My money would be on Googa Mooga.

Love 'em, especially Blackmore - whom I rate right up there with the best. Easily five good/great albums. And Made in Japan is better than any live '70s hard rock LP you can name.

How many great live LPs do you know?

And then how many of them are from the 70s?

And how many of those are 'hard rock'?

I did a whole series of threads on live '70s rock albums earlier this year, John. There are dozens from each year. They may not all be hard rock, but use your imagination. It's better than The Song Remains the Same, Live Bootleg, Live and Dangerous, Bursting Out, Kiss Alive, All The World's a Stage, Made in Japan, Strangers in the Night, Foghat Live, If You Want Blood You've Got it, On Stage, and Band of Gypsys. There's an even dozen for you, all from the '70s, all live, and all hard rock.

Maybe this will refresh your memory. Ooh, check out which album got the most votes.
