Re: Morse's chugging version of Perfect Strangers is brilliant!


Morse changed the song, that's for sure, but I wouldn't say that he changed it for the worse. He changed it for the different.

I can enjoy both Blackmore' and Steve's version. It's the same song, only different!

I agree that Morse sometimes bring in a little to much of that 80's screamin' guitar thing in different songs, but IMO his playing in PS suits the song quite well.

I should probably confess that Stormbringer is right up there with Burn as a couple of the best DP releases,but neither one quite reaches the height of Come Taste The Band-my fav all-time DP album!!Love it or hate it,it's the ONLY DP effort that still sounds fresh and relative in [sign in to see URL] MkII studio material sounds poorly aged and horribly dated,to go along with substandard production [sign in to see URL] me put on my helmet in anticipation of incoming flying blunt objects. emoticon CHEERS

I like the humour. emoticon

CTTB is certainly well produced and still stands up well doesn't it.

I guess it depends what each person likes as to whether a type or music or sound is dated or not. It's probably what you like and listen to most and are most familiar with. Whereas, if you aren't so keen on it in the first place and don't listen to it very often, then over time it is almost guaranteed to sound dated to that person's ears. I guess you just aren't so into MkII whereas I am and to me it sounds timeless and not dated at all.

I like some parts of Stormbringer but don't tell anyone. emoticon

 "Burn" as one of 'the best DP releases' - absolutely agree with that.
 "Stormbringer" as one of 'the best DP releases' - er, no, can't get on board with that.
 Regarding the previous 2 aforementioned DP releases 'reach[ing] the height of "Come Taste The Band" ' - "Burn" is definitely a few rungs higher up my ladder & "Stormbringer" is sometimes equal but usually a rung or two below "Come Taste The Band" on my ladder (my ladder's rungs being constituted of my non-humble opinions emoticon)

 Said and - I'm positive - felt with all the devout conviction a true Bolinoid can muster. emoticon
 "Come Taste The Band" is in my "Personal Top 10" of DP's studio albums but 'the ONLY DP effort that still sounds fresh and relative in 2008'?!?!? Sorry - can't get on board with that at all. We evidently have near polar opposite views as to what we each consider 'fresh and relative'.

 The 'substandard production values' are what made & make the 'Anniversary Remasters' so essential.
 As far as 'aged & dated' - well, that's an individual opinion reached via a certain state of mind, wouldn't you say? If that's your state of mind, that's fine & fair enough; I simply feel fortunate that I don't happen to share that state. emoticon

Well, I can see why you would think like that, to some degree. It was that 'mk's' only studio album, so in that respect there was no chance for staleness, familiarity, etc to creep in. Consequently, as it is so different to the sound on DP's previous material, it's bound to sound fresher. No doubt Come Taste The Band Again would've sounded similar? Who knows? Less sweet, perhaps?

It's strange really, isn't it. Bolin is held in such high regard on these boards, yet he apparently regularly made a habit of murdering DP's earlier material in a live setting, presumably because he didn't like it very much (?), and yet Morse is vilified for what, I suppose, one could say is having a professional attitude to it all?

Why have a go at Morse time and time again for the way he plays Perfect Starngers, or even SOTW, when Bolin never could play Burn?
I've heard many a story of Bolin having 'difficulties' with old Purple numbers, but seemingly having little problem when it came to playing numbers from CTTB.

I think Morse is simply a very professional musician. 'Nuff said.

Is this opinion formed still not having heard any Morse material? emoticon

Here's a shovel, dig yourself a foxhole, too! emoticon

I agree CTTB was fresh sounding, but for me the majority of the songs don't quite cut it.

I like to play the album now and then though.
