Editorial Reviews

Once named the world's loudest band in the Guinness Book of World Records, Deep Purple has triumphed over lineup and style changes to reign as one of the greatest, most iconic heavy metal/hard rock bands ever. In 1974, Burn, marked a creative revitalization for the legendary group with the addition of a pre-Whitesnake David Coverdale and post-Trapeze Glenn Hughes, who shared lead vocals throughout the blistering album. Purple cofounders Richie Blackmore, Jon Lord, and Ian Paice are in top form on the original eight masterfully heavy tracks, which are augmented by five scorching 2004 bonus remixes. Warner. 2005.

Format: Audio CD
This 1974 album was released shortly after the departure of both Ian Gillan and excellent bassist Roger Glover in 1973, thus ending the Mk. II lineup (at least until 1984). On the Burn album, guitarist Ritchie Blackmore (who cranks out some unbelievable leads), drummer Ian Paice, and keyboardist John Lord were joined by new band members David Coverdale (lead vocals) and bassist/vocalist Glenn Hughes. To say the least, I was a little suspicious of the new Mk. III lineup. With respect to the new members, Glenn Hughes (like Roger) also used a trebly Rickenbacker bass (which is a major plus in my book), although he was not as technically advanced as Roger. David Coverdale however, really belts out and is an extremely powerful singer.

OK, so the new members fit in well enough, so what about the music? With the explosive opening of the title track Burn I was convinced that the band was forging onwards without missing a beat. All of the components that made Deep Purple great were in place, but there was something else too. The arrangements on Burn seemed a bit more complex than usual, and what was this? Bach influenced chord progressions? Toccata-like Hammond organ solos? Mini-moog synthesizer solos on a Deep Purple song? This was something a little different (much to the delight of this raving prog fan), and it appeared that the influences of prog giants like ELP had worked their way into the writing style of at least a few guys in the band, which are very much in evidence on the title track Burn. In fact, Burn stands as my all-time favorite Deep Purple tune because it is so proggy.

THE BAND: Ritchie Blackmore (guitars), David Coverdale (vocals), Jon Lord (keyboard/organ), Ian Paice (drums), Glen Hughes (bass). Coverdale and Hughes replace departed members Ian Gillan and Roger Glover respectively.

COMMENTS: I saw EMI's 30th anniversary edition of "Burn" as well as Rhino's remastered and extended version of the same title... and went with this one from Rhino. With EMI's version being 2x the price of Rhino's - the decision was fairly easy. Both contain the same track listing - 13 songs - the 8 original tunes, plus one new remix ("Coronarias Redig"), 4 of the classic songs from "Burn" remixed in 2004, and an extensive 24-page booklet packed with band info and rare pictures. The remixes, like they did with the 25th anniversay edition of "Machine Head", are the same songs from "Burn", but with slightly different guitar solos, maybe a slightly different intro or ending... but for the most part the same song. Let me say that it's a treasure to here these classic songs performed slightly different. This disc is a must-have for the Deep Purple fan! After 1973's "Who Do We Think We Are" was released, and then their live double-album classic "Made In Japan", Deep Purple was sitting on top of the hard rock world. Gillan and Blackmore were at odds over musical direction. Also, Blackmore's main issue was the fact that he wrote 80% of all the material, but the credit was split 5 ways. With all the tension, something had to give... and lead singer Gillan left. Original bassist Roger Glover departed with Gillan. Glen Hughes (ex-Trapeze) aptly replaced Glover - bringing an above average ability on bass guitar and better backing vocals. In steps "a young and pimply-faced" David Coverdale at the ripe age of 23.

Burn sucks me in from the opening riff and holds my attention all the way to the end. Very few guitarists excite me the way Ritchie Blackmore does. I mean, the guy is mesmerizing. Such phrasing. And speed. A dash of medieval here, a smidgeon of showboating there and -- viola! -- you've got a certified rock god on your hands.

On Burn, DP's eight CD, you get to enjoy a classic line-up that includes Blackmore, Jon Lord, Ian Paice, Glenn Hughes and David Coverdale, who has a set of pipes on him that just won't quit. To say he's a powerful singer is putting it mildly.

Rhino's remastering is astounding. Every instrument (especially the drums, keyboards and guitar) jump out of the speakers with crystal clarity. This CD sounds fresher and cleaner than any CD released today. In fact, listening to this Rhino remaster is like hearing Burn for the first time -- which is saying a lot because I remember actually hearing it for the first time when it was released in 1974. As a 14-year-old kid in love with rock music, it made quite an impression.

But it's making an even bigger impression on me now because I have 30 years of maturity and experience with other bands under my belt (which seems to be slightly larger than it was in the Seventies, but that's another story). Deep Purple is one of a handful of bands that still excite the hell out of me. No band today can hold a candle to Blackmore-era Deep Purple.

Which is the main reason why Burn is in my collection and ought to be in yours. This is some of the most electrifying music ever recorded, folks. Thanks to Rhino, it sounds better than it ever did.

In addition to the title track, I really enjoy "Might Just Take Your Life" and, of course, the awesome "Mistreated," one of Blackmore's coolest riffs.
