 Re: Cursed 2nd Albums by a DP lineup

Book of Taliesyn: Definitly better than Shades and there´s a good bunch of reasons for that well worth a thread on it´s own.

Yep, it's definitely better.

The Shield and Anthem alone prove it.

Re: Here Ya Go, Milan!


It´s better for a whole bunch of reasons:

First of there is only three cover versions(Kentucky Woman, We Can Work Out It and River Deep Mountain High). By this time Deep Purple clearly had found their faith in their own material.
On the whole as a compostionary piece of art it far outclasses the debut which also was done in a rush.
You see that they had more time to devolop well crafted own material.
This was the first time they fully delved into psychedlia which peaked at the time they recorded it.
You get Listen Learn Read On, Wring That Neck, Shield and Anthem as really outstanding tracks.

Jon Lord´s influence is very clear on this one(brilliant organ parts in the intro to We Can Work It Out), you get his first string arrangment on record that worked so good it´s often believed to be geniue "classical".
Actually the classical/victorian and even a bit renaissance(I could actually imagine Blackmore playing Anthem with Blackmore´s Night) influences that sneak into that psychedelic rock of that album.

For their own compostions you realise that they are well thought out constructions and the covers are well arranged.
The only let down is River Deep Mountain High, which is actually quite a let down as that track makes out one fourth of the whole thing. Still the rest of the material is so good that it doesn´t matter.
I think they got better and better with each album(DP is my fave MK1 album) until they found their peak on In Rock(and never got as good after that in my opinion).

But as for a document of the original Line-Up it works excellent and that got their style really exposed to the world and had them well on the stage of the Rock´n´Roll world. I their debut put them their, BOT nailed them their, the third was their peak they couldn´t do anything but break after that.

Book Of Taliesyn better than Shades??? emoticon

No way.

On one hand I do agree Taliesyn is a good album, with strong songs, arrangements and playing. There are more work put down into the songs, that's clear. Yet I think that the band try to hard, not knowing really where to go. Mihgt say they didn't know with Shades either, but then they focused more on playing, and less on far-out arrangements. Taliesyn was perhaps a better attempt, but I don't think they ended up any closer to the goal than Shades did.

- Shield and Anthem are stand out tracks, the only ones to my ears on Taliesyn. To compete with Hush and Mandrake Root, I think a tie is as far as I'll stretch it.

- Help makes a far more interesting Beatles cover than We Can Work It Out, methinks.

- There's no instrumentals as joyful as either And The Address or Prelude;Happiness
on Taliesyn.

That said, again Taliesyn is a very fine record, but to me it lacks some of the off-hand feeling that keep Shades going, and though the songs (on BoT) are more worked out, I don't think that part has enough direction to exceed the great feeling of improviastion that makes Shades so special and brilliant (in my book).
