Check it out if you don't know it.





Totally new to me, thanks for the heads up.

Ouch, quick fade.

"Gershatzer" is my favorite of the two instrumentals here, mainly because of the godlike drumming.
Where would rock 'n' roll be without feedback?

Oh, I dig Ian.

Think he's a genuinely nice guy and a very accomplished singer.


Indeed.

I love both bands but I find the Purple albums to be less consistent than Sabbath's

Sorry kath, I know you don't like these comparison things

it's just... the way i think. you'd hafta put me in a spaceship to mars and tell me i can ONLY choose one or the other... thennnn i might decide for real. mwhahaahha

Mmmm.

Ten years ago it wouldn't even have been close, an easy win for Purple.

Nowadays it's dead even.

Another PSL session which has reversed my tired opinions - this is a very solid album indeed. I may well have to get in line and cite this as my favourite Rooster album, as opposed to my iconoclastic view that Nice N Greasy is their best.

This is triumphant!
