Re: Gillan solo stuff - some advice please


Cherkazoo is a compilation and not released by Ian Gillan,CAT is a fine but very neglected album.

It may be a compilation, but it still beats everything Gillan (the band) ever made. All IMO of course.

Yep, that's all that matters. I like the idea that there's only two kinds of music; the kind of music I like and the kind of I don't like. emoticon

I mentioned it in the first place because it's a favorite of mine,not the live part though.
When it came out I was loving what was happening to them,they were topping the brittish charts and doing 200 shows a year.
I know,like Torme was saying,where was the $$$$!!!!!(so what)
Double Trouble was great,it just doesn't stand out very well,these type of records have their significance though.
I recommend it highly,it was produced nicely by Steve Smith,sort of like Gillan meets IGB.
Partucular favorite tracks for me are
Men Of War,Reastless and Nightmare,not to mention Born To Kill and Sunbeam.emoticon



I love Double Trouble. An excellent album. Sunbeam contains Gers' best moment with the band. Fabulous riff and solo.

The live recording has been superseded by the incredible Live at the BBC releases.

In fact, those Live at the BBC vol. 1 and vol. 2 releases are essential for any Gillan fans, and would be my recommendation.

Bernie Torme is on fire, Gillan is a demon, Towns is inspired and John McCoy is just badass! This stuff blew me away. Only to be played on maximum volume.

You said it Rahul emoticon
Those BBC recordings restored my belief that they were a great live act,when I fist heard them I couldn't believe it,every member of the band was absolutely in their element,couldn't agree with you more.
Thanks to [sign in to see URL]. for those,as well as everything else they have given us. emoticon

I can't believe that you've all forgotten about "Gillan" (aka "the Japanese album") emoticon. I know he has Mr U already, but this album really is a must emoticon.

Of course,but it's no common release,one should get down to basics first... emoticon
This album is second to none though!
