    Guess I did miss understand then. Sorry

    Listened to it yesterday. Very good for a first listen. More spins to follow.

    Very nice album and there are three or four really nice tunes but I'm still partial to Now! What? in the Ezrin ouvre of DP but, in any case, I'd like to be a doinkus and go back before Wyld Stallions saved the world with this amazing clip that I never knew existed until a few months ago.

    I need information. When did Ritchie switch to Fender Strats? When did Lordy ditch the whole Hammond with foot pedals? He clearly plays them here. So how did In Rock have that sound when they seem to be playing the instruments they didn't on the album? What's the timeline here that I'm missing?

    Have fun, and it's got more cowbell, so Chris Walken is happily dancing with this one.

    I am enjoying this album a great deal - to me it may be the best of these last 3 albums produced by Ezrin, but I need more time to let it sink in. I think Morse has a little more variety in his playing than on the last couple of Purple albums. I understand that Purple are very much a rock band, but I would like to hear Morse mix in a bit of his amazing acoustic guitar playing here and there - a nice contrast to his fabulous electric playing.

    I think Don Airey is as good as a player can be on this album. His playing is very exciting and I love his choice of sounds. What a great mix of piano, Hammond and synth sounds. It's all there. Even his organ sounds have a variety of settings, each seem to serve the tune just right.

    Ian Paice is 72 and he takes no shortcuts with his playing on this record.

    I would like some other bands who have been around this long to listen to this Purple album. I think it's very inspiring to see guys at this age still writing some good tunes and still playing with strength and energy.

    The In Rock period is when Richie transitioned from the ES-335 to the Strat. He used both on the album. By Fireball, it was all Strat all the time.

    On the Fireball cover, Roger is shown playing a Fender Bass. But on No No No, he's clearly playing a Rick Bass. It can be assumed for any band, the instruments pictured are not exclusively what they played on an album

    I can't speak to Jon's use of the pedalboard, but can tell you the reason he started using Leslie Speakers again in the 1974/Mark III period was larger, more powerful Leslie's became available. He used a pair of them at that. His plugging into a Marshall Stack during the Mark II period was out of necessity, to compete with Richie.

    I never did get back to this thread. Watching the last of what I think I need in the Deep Purple canon. Live at the NEC, Jon Lord's farewell.

    Didn't know Ted The Mechanic was an experience from The House Of Blue Light tour. Still an excellent song. I remember the first time I heard it, on a Walkman waiting for the bus. Knowing Steve was in the band was a weird thing but then hearing them all together made sense. The world was still spinning and Steve Morse is a frakking guitar god. Keeping that band together all these years is fantastic.

    Not unlike Mitzi Dupree which happened the night Ian left for Salt Lake City after a Black Sabbath show I saw in Vegas. Good storyteller, Big Ian is.

    Steve Morse is still using a guitar cord. Funny to see that. His country leanings are such a departure from the Ritchie days yet still works.

    Wish there was a live version of Ritchie playing When A Blind Man Cries. Steve kills it but I'd like that comp. White men can have soul, the end of that tune is nice given how Ian sings these days.

    I saw an interview with Gillan and... either Paice or Glover, where they talked about how much they would like to have played that song more often and had it on the album proper. Gillan says "But Ritchie no-likey".

    Yes, he's pictured with a guitar on one of the IGB albums, but never in a live setting.

    Got this cd awhile ago and only made it through once. I wasnít too thrilled but Iíll have to give another listen to make a better judgement of it.
