At least one in every five spectators smoked, while the sound reverberated all over the place. So that experience is more vivid in my mind than how the band played. I do remember being thrilled with Jon Lord's solos and annoyed that Blackmore wasn't there. I had missed my chance to see Blackmore with Purple a few years before, when the Slave And Masters line-up visited Athens.
It was a combination of perennial pennilessness and annoyance that Joe Lynn Turner had replaced Gillan as lead singer. I don't think anyone accepted Turner as a legitimate Purple member, his style was too AOR for classic Purple material.
Now, of course, it stands out as a missed opportunity. I would love to listen to a professionally recorded concert from that tour, see what he brought to the game and how his presence affected the songs.
My eagerness to listen how present-day Purple play their classic songs was one of the reasons I picked up the special edition of their latest CD, containing a bonus live disc.
Album) was the expectation that this was to be their last album the accompanying tour was named the "Long Goodbye Tour". Think of it as a once-beloved TV series that has been going on for too long. You may have missed the last few seasons, but aren't you going to watch the last episode and learn how it all ends? This was just a misunderstanding, though. The latest word by Steve Morse is that they are planning to enter studio again in for a new record.
I had stopped following Purple after Perfect Strangersas I found what I heard from the next few albums unconvincing. It had gotten good reviews, and it wasn't a bad album, but it certainly didn't sound like Deep Purple.
Imagine how pleasantly surprised I was when the opening "Time for Bedlam" instantly reminded me of the titular track from Perfect Strangers. Gillan is in fine voice throughout the album. Different from the 70's, more constrained and less shrieky. On "Hip Boots" he's bluesier, even reminds me of Elvis for the first verse. The LP ends anti-climatically with an unnecessary cover of The Doors' "Roadhouse Blues".
The album cover depicts an icebreaker forming the letters d and p on the ice, which are also arranged to resemble the infinity sign to symbolize the band's year history. Gus man, your way out there. You can not LP Franklin to Joplin. Janis had more pain in her life time, wich I might add she only lived 27 years, and franklin lived longer, so to that you can only compare their early work.
I don't think you under stand her songs, and if you wach her playing you can see that her songs are her life. Her screeching are crys in her own way. She is a ledgion just like every great musian in the 60's. Black music was respected. Just look at Jimi Hendrex, of Richie Havens, they are just some of the great preformers. Take a look at what janis created, she singlhandely from my opinan made rock and roll what it is, for the woman.
I guess you don't know this, but she was an outcast because she stood up for blacks, and her family would often say that she was ill, because she helped them out, and growing up in texas that could not have been easy. Janis Joplin could sing her ass off. Unfortunately, she had a really lousy instrument. I'd "Call on You" Janis This is my favorite song by Janis. Who could ever sing it like her? Certainly not Gus. Alright I gotta get off Gus. Totally different, yet both give me chills all over, man.
You can't compare legends like these. And if you do, you're just asking Maybe - Janis Joplin - I Got Them Ol Kosmic Blues Again (Vinyl a fight. I bet Gus ain't never heard someone sing soul like Big Mama. She make ya feel it all over, she'll let ya know what it's all about. A great album, it might be even my favourite record with a female singer only other candidate LP this category would be Surrealistic Pillow.
But it's not the point I'd like to make about it. A part of the chorus on "Piece of my Heart" was in a shameless way ripped off by Queen on their post-Mercury album Made in Heaven in a title "Let me live" which not only contains a line "Take another little piece of my heart" but also the vocal delivery is quite similar to the one by Janis except for the fact Janis' voice is a bit more manly than the one of Freddy.
Not that much Janis here, but the album has always been to me a very nice collection of catchy pop ditties. What a melody! Silly, but charming. Like I say man, Go buy it. It ain't something you can describe. It's hard to try to describe the feelings I get from listening to a "live" album by Janis. She throws all her feeling and soul at ya. It's breath taking, but this coming from a year-old fan.
I didn't live when she did, but you know, she's the only female singer I've felt a great, burning attachment to. She's the one that lets me feel how I feel and know that it's all right to feel so much all the time.
I know I'm not alone if though she's gone. The Who 2. Canned Heat 3. Jefferson Airplane 5. Santana 6. Ten Years After 7. I did some healthy kicking of myself when the answers were read out. It feels almost like bands as big as the Grateful Dead and Creedence Clearwater Revival have been written out of history because of their absence from the film.
I wondered if their sets were even filmed, before old friend and Woodstock expert Moo sent me the link to the Creedence set on YouTube. Much of LP rest of the set is audio-only, with the video creeping back intermittently. Is there a songwriter more overlooked than John Fogerty?
To me, great disco was solely an American proposition — K. So a foreign-born — and most importantly, a foreign- sounding — disco band like Boney M. The band hail from the West Germany of the s, with members originally from Jamaica, Aruba and Montserrat.
If they had travelled north from the Caribbean, and landed in the USA they might have indeed been a vital part of the American disco scene. Instead, their music is blighted by an economical, soulless Europop production by Frank Farian — the German producer behind the Milli Vanilli lip-syncing scandal of the s. While the more artistically and commercially successful Abba have remained timelessly relevant on the strength of both their songwriting and the production of their material, Boney M.
