Re: Classic Albums


Just got Ace of Spades of this series. This is brilliant! Perhaps the best one I've seen. What is great is that each one from the series I've seen has really been like the band that is featured. So, while the Pink Floyd one is a bit... dry, discussing about music only, the Motörhead is much more about crazy stories, as much about music as it is about doing speed and groupies.

The line-up even plays a couple of songs live, with out vocals, for the dvd. But there has to be still a grudge between Lemmy and Eddie, because the latter plays his parts against a blue screen and Phil and Lemmy are then added behind him.

Re: Classic Albums


I own quite a few of these;

DP-Machine Head
Zappa-Apostrophe/Over-Nite Sensation
Pink Floyd-Dark Side of the Moon
          -Wish You Were Here
Motorhead-Ace Of Spades
Jimi Hendrix-Electric Ladyland
The Who-Who's Next

I really like this series and the input from the various members. It gives great insight and information (and in some cases showing how to play the songs correctly!).

Are there ones I would like to see done? Definitely. Rainbow Rising or Long Live Rock N Roll would be cool, but like was mentioned, it would most likely be Down To Earth (which would still be a treat).

I think what it comes down to though is if asked, the various members have to be interested (or [sign in to see URL] in the case of Rainbow with Cozy and Ronnie passing on, RIP). Ritchie would have to be interested and while he seemed so on the Machine Head dvd, some things have transpired since and he chooses not to talk about his past. How interesting would a Rising dvd be if the only input was from Jimmy Bain and Tony Carey? No disrespect intended, but at this point, I'd say its a no-go on that one. Down To Earth would be more probable as you would still have RB, RG, GB and [sign in to see URL] thats once again assuming Ritchie would want to participate.

I don't know, a Rainbow one would be really, really great but like you said, Cozy and Ronnie are gone so... How about Bent out of Shape of Difficult to Cure?

Straight Between The Eyes would be a good one [sign in to see URL] still really love that album and that tour was the first time I ever saw Ritchie live. I was hoping they'd play "Eyes of Fire" but I don't think they ever [sign in to see URL] too as that's a killer song. Still, I love what they did with "Tearin' Out My Heart" [sign in to see URL] San Antonio version just kills.

Re: Classic Albums


Yeah, it's a great version alright!

SBTE was my first Rainbow album, too. I still - or should I say again - like it a lot. Arguably BOOS has stronger songs whilst DTC has I Surrender on it, hence more likely pick for a documentary DVD.
