Bent Out of Shape does it for me. Perhaps the first and only time Blackmore managed to merge great songs within a commercial format successfully. Other albums had glimpses of it, but this worked as a whole, IMHO.

But just when he had seemingly found what he was looking for, it was all over.




I've been listening to BOOS recently and think it's the best JLT Rainbow. As far as good songs in a commercial format Street of Dreams is the prime example. Great lyrics and a perfect solo from Blackmore. Two very good insturmentals in Snowman and Anyone There?. RB's tone is wicked on them. I like Drinking With The Devil a lot more then I used to. It's a good simple heavy riff that Blackmore punctuates with his sound. I think the keyboard in the main riff needs to be louder though.

S&M is the best one out of those.

Re: Slaves as Rainbow


I'll go with Bent Out Of Shape and Slaves & Masters, as the two best ones from this list.

Re: Slaves as Rainbow


I'd take Straight Between the Eyes first, then Bent Out of Shape, then Slaves and Masters.

S & M is a true Rainbow album. It had the same singer, guitarist, bass player, songwriters, producer, and management as Rainbow did 10 years later. Lord and Pace were session musicians just as Rosenthal and the drummers were earlier.

Too bad truth in advertising laws couldn't have prevented S & M being labeled as Deep Purple.

Re: Slaves as Rainbow


Bent Out of Shape is very good for what it is. Slaves is not Rainbow and not quite DP either. If Slaves was a Rainbow album, I would say it didn't sound quite right. It will always be a Deep Rainbow album to me. Off subject but MKIII after Burn sounds like Purplesnake to me. emoticon
