You can't do it right


YCDIR got to be one of the most overlooked songs of the mk III era.
I have myself been guilty of not rating this one.
But since a year ago it have gone from obscurity to being the best song on the great SB album.
Another song from this album which have climbed is Love don't mean a thing.
The solo from Blackmore on this one is superb.
IMO.

I've always liked this song very much. I think in some poll a while back it was voted the weakest track off the album though. To me, it is one of the better tracks off the album.

Re: You can't do it right


It is a GREAT song
I love the feel of non-chalance it diffuses.
Putting it right after Lady double dealer was a great idea too.

I'm waiting with anticipation for the remastered SB, perhaps even a little more than for Burn.
The old cd I have sounds muddy and weak and really needs some improvment.

Re: You can't do it right


I'll have to spoil the party here and say this is one of the worst Purple tracks for me, completely off-style not too mention non-sensical. I love stuff like Hold On and Love Don't Mean Thing but as a composition this one is really poor to my ears and nowhere near the level of the other funky things they did on that album. Just my opinion of course.

Re: You can't do it right


Hold On is one of my favorites from that record, and Lady Double Dealer....but I like YCDIR....too. I love the MKIII music, it's different, but good.

Great riff and perfect rhythm playing by Blackmore. For someone who claims to be turned off by funk he handled his duties well enough. No guitar solo though.
