GILLAN ~ THE 2Oth CENTURY COLLECTION


Why is there no “definitive” Gillan Anthology out there?!
It’s kind of sad, that a singer this legendary, can’t have a proper anthology.
Some of the highlights over the years: (According to Amazon reviewers & myself)
[sign in to see URL]
Fighting man
Sleeping on the job
Roller
Secret of the Dance.
Angel Manchenio
Money Lender
Cherkazoo
Driving Me Wild
Rip Your Spine Out
Born To Kill
Nightmare
[sign in to see URL]
Men Of War
Sunbeam
Unchain Your Brain
On The Rocks
Time And Again
Running White Face City Boy
Are You Sure
Sacre Bleu
No Laughter In Heaven
If I Sing Softly
Bluesy Blue Sea
Living A Lie
You're So Right
What's The Matter
Hang Me Out To Dry
Pictures Of Hell
Candy Horizon
Dancing Nylon Shirt
Gut Reaction
No Good Luck
Loving On Borrowed Times
No More Cane On The Brazos
Telephone Box
Clouds And Rain


Is this the making of a decent Gillan Anthology?
I’m sure there are other great tracks I’ve simply forgotten about or don’t know about.
Should we send a finalized list of favorites to Gillan or his management,
and ask why there’s not a decent Anthology?

What happened to:

What I did on my vacation. A great anthology, and another isn't needed. Only fans would buy it, and they have it all anyway

A good anthology might just generate a bigger fanbase!

Well I believe it goes the other way. Today people don't buy music, they don't see on mtv, and that they don't buy but download.

If you don't know Gillan, why would you buy an Anthology? And then there's already an Anthology out there, it seems to be overkill.

No offense meant, but are you working for a record company?. No fans need Anthologies, they have everything that's available, except for that one or two special editions, that's put on it, just to get you buy it.

No non-fans will buy yet another Anthology, they have one already, or don't care.

Re: GILLAN ~ THE 2Oth CENTURY COLLECTION


Who cares about Gillan now in 2004 ??

The only one who's concerned about the band is ... John Mc Coy !! Let's just count the number of releases he has done latterly

About management, does someone know what is doing former Gillan's manager Phil Banfield ?

If I'm not mistaken, Robert Plant just had a "complete" anthology put out.

And to your point about MTV and "who cares anyway"...True enough, I'm not interested in Plant either. But, somebody thought it was worth while to put together a complete history of Plants.

Re: GILLAN ~ THE 2Oth CENTURY COLLECTION


One has just recently come out,I forget the name of it,purpletemple,the guy who claims this is Gillan worst period of his career emoticon bought it,maybe we'll get a comment from him.
Personally,if it isn't made with Gillan's involvement,why take too much interest in it?
As MrSnip said,it's been done before.
