Shades Of Deep Purple

I know it's highly appreciated among some hardcore fans, and the remastered editions + the "Early Years" compilation pays the debut great respect, but still I find it underrated in general.
I know the embryonic band had a lot development coming, but there's aspects with Shades I find close to unique even in the complete DP catalog.
At this point the band had nothing to live up to, no success to match, everything was undone and untried. Somehow that shines through, in a "let's try this, let's try that" attitude that knows no limtitations (like the fear of repeating themselves). On top comes that the album is recorded straight off within hours, no pedantic repairs or other soul-killing deconstruction of recorded material in order to make it "perfect". Music ain't about being perfect, it's about enjoying. "Shades of" is a discovery adventure between the written and the improvised, like a bird making it's first successful flaps with the wings. In this attitude, in the performances more than in the songs themselves, one can hear that this band ain't no ugly duck, this is a swan about to unfold.
In my humble opinion, that is. emoticon








 Ya know what Atle - I've come to 100% completely agree with this! emoticon

Re: Most Underrated Deep Purple Studio Album


stormbringer. is a great album but most of the people dont like it entire. real shame. Dc and GH did a great job. RB didnt like is a fact and it mades jon lord work much more than usual to avoid any gap in the songs. i just love his high ball shooter solo. such a fantastic job!

again it's a great DP album! the only song is not at the same level of the others is hold on, but it'a safe 7,0 song (in a 0-10 scale)

Thanks. It may sound odd, but if I didn't know better, I'd never guessed I wrote that myself. I'm not even kidding. I must have smoked something weird. emoticon

I voted for "The Battle Rages On," though I could have voted for quite a few.
