4.5 Stars for one of the most underrated rock albums ever
on August 1, 2007
Great remaster of this fantastic live album. The remastered sound is punchy and crisp, with Ian Paice's drumming thrashing about in all its glory. One little nitpick, Blackmore's guitar seems to be pushed a little bit back in the mix here and there, but it's never inaudible. It's a great CD, although there are no bonus tracks. And bassist Glenn Hughes' high-pitched shrieking doesn't occur much here. Only on the break in "Burn," and a spot or two elsewhere, which is great. Glenn is a fantastic bassist and a great singer when he sings in his natural range, but his shrieking is hit and miss. Thankfully, there's little of his squealing here. Glenn's bass sounds great on this remaster, too. I never owned this LP or the original CD, so I don't know what to compare it to, but to these ears, this jewel sounds great. I only wish there was a little bit more artwork and essays in the CD booklet (like the Gillan-Glover reissues), but the remastering is really great.
