Re: Turning to Crime - first impression


I'm still waiting for my physical copies, but somehow I was able to listen to the whole album twice.

I love it! The album takes me back in time, a new experience in my Purple listening adventure.

I want another covers album from Deep Purple, please do another one.

👍

I don't care much for Jenny Take A Ride or Shape OF Things and the medley is a bit cheesy but loving the rest.

Re: Turning to Crime - first impression


7 and 7 is - 8/10 I like this one Paicey is excellent, it stops to soon though emoticon
Rocking Pneumonia - 6/10 meh its ok
Oh well - 7/10 as i mentioned on the previous thread kinda dull take on a classic but i have to say this version has grown on me emoticon
Jenny Take A Ride - 8/10 good old RnR emoticon
Watching The River Flow - 6/10 meh its ok
Let The Good Times Roll - 6/10 meh its ok
Dixie Chicken - 6/10 meh its ok
Shapes of Things - 7/10 ive heard some way better versions of this but its good
The Battle Of New Orleans - 4/10 very dull worst track on the album by far
Lucifer - 7/10 i like this one
White Room - 9/10 love this SM is brilliant here emoticon
Caught In The Act - 8/10 nice wee name that tune medley to finish emoticon

all in all a fun album emoticon
i actually agree with ptr emoticon both Gillan and Paicey are brilliant throughout SM is also brilliant when he stays away from the widdlefest which he does in the main emoticon

Agree about Battle of New Orleans being the worst moment (Roger at the mic? uh uh, no no, please) but I very much enjoy Let the good times roll as Paicey is so great on jazzy swing numbers like this one.

Re: Turning to Crime - first impression


I knew the first 3 tracks before (as most of us did), so the first impression of the rest:

Let the good times roll
Jenny take a ride
Dixie chicken
and
The battle of new orleans

are my instant favourites. Very untypical DP :-)...

White Room: One of the greatest songs, DP very near at the original. Do I like it just because of the song itself or because of the DP version? Not sure yet!

BTW: Compared to Roadhouse Blues (which was lame) the new cover songs show a very inspired band with great energy.

Roadhouse Blues was done very quickly (under 30 minutes) as I recall. I'm pretty sure this album wasn't done in the same way.

Whilst listening to TTC my wife walks through the room and says "that's not your usual choice of music". Mmm, she might be onto something...
