Re: What's the matter with "wibbley-dibbley"?


In general, Morse is the player fans feel is somewhat widdly widdly, squeek,widdly, squeek-oriented. To a degree where it may be a bit directionless.

Long solos, by Blackmore/ Lord, has seldom been complained about..

Respect, anyway! :-)

I think one of the things that made long,jam tunes popular back in the day was just the point it was a thumb in the eye of establishment thing.We had a jock that would play the whole Space Truckin',Tobacco Road by Edgar Winter etc. back when songs went 3:15,and it was "cool" to hear that "racket" that sent the parents up the wall.




Interesting perspective! I never thought of it that way before.

Re: What's the matter with "wibbley-dibbley"?


 The long jams between Blackmore & Lord were at thier best when they had a place to go with them, and that was always Speed King. The solos would build until the end and had a place to go. Although, when I was younger, amd DP still in it's formative years, the long jams sounded great, I think just because it showed me what my favorite band was capable of. But as the years and lp's piled up, I would have rather heard more tunes than 25 minutes of Space Truckin indulgence. The MKII could have played more along the lines of POH, Fools, No No No in place of the jams and MKIII could have played Sail Away, Highball Shooter, What's Goin on Here and SOF instead of the two long jams in ST and YFNO. Keep YFNO and toss ST. I would rather hear extended solos within the framework of the tune rather than meandering off into no-where-land just for the sake of it.
But pleeeze..No extended solos for this band as the guitarist is very limited in what he can play. He only knows one solo and plays it on every record and every song
 After listening to the fruitloops CD lately I was thinking that it was too bad it wasn't the first release by MK-Smiley. I may not be so cynical of it. The incessant widdlin,wibblin woobedas actually work on this record, but by the time this was released, the widdlin was but a joke and I'd had enough. But, these days I'm starting to be able to overlook the fact that they recorded the other two and the countless live widdlefests released since the incarnation. But the new CD will have to cut back severely on the wibblin. I have said that Bradford should take over the guitar duties and Airey should leave his plunkety Shroeder(from Peanuts series)Signature Piano home.

A rare moment of absolute agreement from me. Just on what I quoted mind you, not the whole post.

I agree too. And the live set became too stle in all the ways. They even played the solos pretty much the same for years.

Re: What's the matter with "wibbley-dibbley"?


I wasn't particularly happy with the extended "solo" on Space Truckin' off of Live at California Jam...and there are about a DOZEN DP songs I would have much rather heard on that lp than ST or SOTHW (as interesting as that version does get on that album). But I am pretty much used to the seemingly English Rock Star propensity for taking solos when either uninspired or bored. Blackmore is an excellent example of this, but Tony Iommi and Page asre just as guilty at times. The problem is, when Blackmore is uninspired, it tends (at least for me) to make the entire DP show uninteresting.
I love Blackmore's guitar playing so much WHEN inspired (studio examples:the solos on all of the Perfect Strangers album, "Burn", Pretty much everything off of Rainbow Rising and Long Live...; live: CIT off both "Breakout" and MIJ, SKOW off MIJ,"Mistreated" off of Rainbow Live in Europe,etcetera). It's hard to fault him during those rare occasions...his playing shows such personality and spiritual channeling, imo. But, like Iommi, Blackmore expresses boredom by resorting to excruciatingly boring effects, and this tends to make me often nonplussed at him.
Lord is more consistently interesting, imo, but I'm a guitar player, so that illustrates my perspective well.

 First thing I would do is fire everybody. Then call this guitar player from Long Island called Ritchie Blackmore and ask him if he would like to start a group with a keyboard player from Florida called Jon Lord. Then we would take it from there. If he want's, we can name the band after the guitar players grandmothers favorite song. Drummers, Bass players and singers would need to pass an audition and be free to record and play songs that they haven't necessarily been involved with in the writing. The singer would be required to sing in tune and remember the words while there would be no Aunt Jemima scarfs allowed on thier heads on stage.
Smiling is not a requirement.
