Editorial Reviews

Digitally remastered and expanded edition of this 1974 album from the duo spearheaded by Deep Purple's Jon Lord. This album was begun as far back as the autumn of 1971 at Apple Studios. Ashton and Lord fancied trying a single, a song called 'We're Gonna Make It'. They had such fun that it was decided to plan a whole album. Further sessions took place in 1972 and 1973, with Ashton and Lord wanting to create the feel of a big band in the studio. Rather than do overdubs, they had up to 15 musicians working together at any one time, often with two drummers. Despite both musicians having plenty of other commitments (Lord with Deep Purple, Ashton with the final Ashton, Gardner & Dyke album and then a hectic tour with Family), the album was largely finished by1973 but delayed until 1974 to avoid confusing the market during the line-up changes in Deep Purple.

I got this on vinyl back in the '70s. So nice to see this on CD again - there had been a crackly pressing on the Line label years ago for a very brief time.

So, what is it? It's a Jon Lord / Tony Ashton fun fest from 1974. It's mostly good time bluesy rock with bits of soul and R&B. Along for the ride are Ron Wood, BJ Cole, Peter Frampton, Cozy Powell, the folks from Capability Brown, and more!

Tunes like Celebration, Shut Up, Silly Boy, & Downside Upside Down still sound mighty fine! If you've never heard this one, give it a try!
