Re: Not a good day at the office for DP!


Despite the guitar solo is not there, I really enjoy that version as a demonstration of MkII jamming capabilities.

Count me into the appreciators.

BTW, that recording is on the LLRO box set along with a version of No No No taped in the same tv show. I like 'em both. Nice loose versions.

What is wrong with it? That was recorded a little time before they all came out to Montreux...

If they could do something like that when it was "not a good day at the office for DP", what were they capable of on a good day???



You're having a laugh, surely? That's crap, IMHO. IG is obviously 'under the influence', and hasn't yet written the lyrics yet, [sign in to see URL], what's the point. Either I'm too old for this !@#$ or there is some serious 'blind hero worshipping' going on.

I repeat. That is crap. IMHO, of course.


And I should [sign in to see URL] it was unfinished, then they shouldn't have played it live for recording then, should they? Some people will listen to any old crap, wont they?



As I said, its far superior to the abomoniation and farce that were mkIII and mkIV's attempts at any mkII song.

As others have pointed out too, theres nothing wrong with it, probably more to do with your gratuitous hatred for Gillan which is all too obvious and pointless. I also like the live version of No No No which came from this session.

The "No No No" version is amazing: look at Ritchie playing and you'll think that's a piece of cake to play guitar like him. Well, it is not... far from that (I know, I tried).

Some people on here obviously thinks that all jams, all versions, all live gigs ends up fantastic. Every time. Of course they´re not.
It´s a great version, Jon Lord is really on fire, Ian Gillan is... emoticon , ...probably not sober. Fun!

Eh! Gratuitous Gillan hatred? Me? I don't think so! I love Gillan with DP MKll, first time round.

I even posted the No,No,No session you refer to, quite some time ago, and commented how good it was. I think you may have me mixed up with someone else, perhaps? Where have I ever said I hate Gillan? Examples, please.

Some people like loose [sign in to see URL] don't. Why, some people would even sit through a Grateful Dead jam/concert, but I would've been bored stiff.

I'm certainly not 'anal' about all things Purple. For example, I don't bother with 'out takes', or discarded takes on anniversary remixed [sign in to see URL] were usually discarded because they were no good, so why inflict them on us in the first place?

For example, I don't like Painted Horse. I also never listen to Space Truckin' on MIJ.

Your unquestionable loyalty to all things Purple is rather suffocating. Surely there must be something the band did from 1969-1973 that you don't like. How can you say there's nothing wrong with that version of Highway Star. There's no lyric, no discernible melody, and 2 sub-standard instrumental sections. Jon Lord on fire! I don't think so. And Blackmore's just flinging in a wangy bar fest for the want of actually playing a meaningful solo.

I would suggest that the 'version' I posted was probably a 'warm up' for the session, and was never meant for public consumption.

Re: Not a good day at the office for DP!


Dart, just to answer your initial question ("what's the story of that version?"), it comes from an early September 1971 German TV show (and not BBC as I wrongly indicated).

quote from Ritchie Blackmore Rock Profile vol. 1:

The Fireball album was one of Deep Purple's finest, yet was somewhat squeezed out of their live act as the band were unhappy with the end result. "There are only three tracks I think are good" Blackmore commented at the time: "Fireball, Fools and No No No". That version was done for a German TV show called The Beat Club and includes Blackmore at his funkiest*. Dating it precisely is difficult, but they did do a TV show there in early September 1971 which seems the most likely. The version of Machine Head's Highway Star is from the same set, Blackmore driving along a tune which was still in the process of being written at that time. "That solo got put down and then I listened to it and had to copy it. That part that moves in thirds is an old run I used to play ten years ago. Johnny Burnette, who used to play with Elvis, taught me that particular run and I hadn't used it in years. It isn't entirely original but it's exciting".

* but that doesn't mean he plays funk(sorry, private joke)

Probably not sober is right but anytime you can put Steve McQueen and Mickey Mouse in the same line of a song is thinking on your feet to me emoticon
