30-something Years On...

(5 out of 5 stars)

"I was fourteen when I started buying music in earnest. All that hard-earned paper-route money went directly to Columbia House for orange eight-track cassettes and a junky player and speakers.

All that gear is long gone and the eight-tracks were sold on to a friend so I could upgrade to turntable and better speakers. There are a few albums I had on eight-track that I still can't find anywhere, but for the most part I was able to get the ones that mattered.

This is one. Imagine, it's 1971 and I'm getting home from my paper route and stuffing this album into the eight-track. It was incredible stuff at the time. Today we can sit and berate the quality of the recording though it's not that bad, and chuckle at some of the lyrics (it does get a little out there at times) but this was made at an interesting time in history and indeed music was undergoing some incredible change. Recording studios were just starting to really get the hang of more complex mixes, and playback devices (the eight-track notwithstanding) were becoming affordable and capable of some decent home high-fidelity.

I just put this onto CD from LP. As I listened to it playback the first time I was questioning why on earth I was transcribing this. Then when I played it back to check to see if the CD came out OK, I started to remember the album and even some of the times I had listened to it way back when.

This music is a part of the soundtrack of my life and for that reason alone it might be why I like it so much. It's possible I cannot be objective in saying this is a five-star recording. All I can say is that as I listen to the third playback I am remembering why I liked it so much all those years ago.

If you are just sinking your teeth into Deep Purple, or indeed, music of the Seventies, then this may be a bitter pill. But if you grew up during the period this music was made, and like me, had this as backdrop to your growing up, you will welcome it back like the old friend that it is.

The strongest DP album ever made

"All songs on this record are excellent. Some may like Machine Head better, but to me this record has the greater depth. It gets stronger towards the end of the record, good for car if you have the amplifiers to detonate it."

"Fireball I think it is a great CD. What I want to say there is no question that Made in Japan is one of best live or studio albums ever. FIREBALL HAD 2 OF THE 7 SONGS ON MADE IN JAPAN!!!!!!!!"
