Re: Ian Gillan - Live in Nottingham


Puget Sound and Sweet Lolita were on the video, too.
Why should Living for the city have been left off?
Nothing should have been dropped, they should have put everything from the video to the DVD and the CD!

Rahul,

You should always check [sign in to see URL] first for anything you want. Their stock is not always good but what they have is always the cheapest. Plus no postage in the UK or Europe.

PS. Do you have the ability to get to Redcar, April 23rd? Me & the Mrs will be up there to see Prendo.

Re: Ian Gillan - Live in Nottingham


I just saw it in the shop I was in and because I had never seen or heard of it before, I just bought it on the spot. I'd never the seen this release anywhere else!

Can't make the Prendo gig unfortunately! Redcar is too difficult to get to after work! Prendo did play at my regular haunt before Christmas though, but I was on holiday!

However, if you can make it to Newcastle the night before (22 April), Alvin Lee and Edgar Winter are playing on the same bill at the Opera House! I'll be there! emoticon

Their stock is AWFUL. They never seem to have anything other than major releases with a few exceptions, unlike say Amazon. The prices are a killer however and I always find myself checking it first for prices...

We will be at Blakey watching the Hamsters that night.
Never mind, we'll get to meet one day. Blakey festival this year?

I just don't like LFTC done by Gillan,especially that night with that other singer,I think he should have never recorded it in the first place.
Check out Johnny Langs version on his latest album and you'll see what I mean,that song was meant for a natural soul
singer and not a rock singer IMHO,thats all
there really is to the way I see it.
I didn't ven care for Naked Thunder very much for that matter,I was very dissapointed.,I've had alot of time to reflect and I can tolerate much better now though. emoticon

I'd like to know if people disgusted by DP/JLT enjoyed Naked Thunder and Tool Box, especially Naked because it was released at the same time than S&M ...

Re: Ian Gillan - Live in Nottingham


Well, finally got round to listening to it! Not sure if I'll listen to the whole thing as its late and I need my sleep!

But so far, it's excellent! I really enjoyed Naked Thunder. It's not a ground-breaking album by any means and made little ripple on the music scene. But it has some excellent song-writing on it, some really great tunes, and a nice softer vibe to it. Probably the closest Ian has come to commercial pop-rock. But even then, the quality of the songs is a class above!

So I was really looking forward to listening to this gig!

Gut Reaction was superb. A good, short, sharp opener. That was followed by Demon's Eye which really rocked! Great to hear this number in the set.

Living for the City was not quite as good. Who was the other singer anyway? I always quite liked the song on the Magic album (one of about three tracks on that release worth listening to) but I don't think this live version adds anything new or exciting to that one.

No More Cane on the Brazos was never one of my faves on the Naked Thunder album. I always thought it sounded too much out of place and was a bit overlong. However, this version really does show off Ian's remarkable voice. He is incredible, and I'm assuming that it is him on the harmonica too, which really fits in excellently. A great track that shows of Gillan's versatility. The lower registers of his voice are a side of Ian that I really enjoy these days. It's got a lot of emotion in it that is sometimes lost on the more raucous tunes as he has gotten a bit older!

I Thought No has certainly never been a song I was particularly fond of. This version is a good bar room shuffle with some nice performances (notably the well-timed keyboard solo that sounds a little Mickey Lee Soule-ish) but it will never be high on my playlist. And at 7 and a half minutes, it's just not interesting enough!

Just beginning to listen to WABMC now! Hope this blows me away!

I loved Toolbox. That was how Gillan should have been singing with Purple. A Fabulous vocal performance. He really let it fly with that one!

I really enjoyed Naked Thunder too. See my previous post. It's not a perfect album and it has some throwaway tracks, but the songwriting is excellent and Ian's attempts at a softer sound work quite well for the large part.
