Re: "Backyard" recording


i agree - I have absolutely no problems with the sound of this album. It has a 'warmness' to it similar to Machine Head. The echo effect in Clearly Quite Absurd brings the song to the next level - a great touch. Vocal distortions in Deep Purple!! Absurd! - where's Alan Parsons when you need him?

C'mon! The production sucks big time, and is what, for me, bring's the record down a bit. There are some great tunes here (and 3 not so great at all), but I think that Bradfords production destroys a lot of the "feeling" of the songs here!

The production on Machine Head is way better. The sound is crystal clear compared to ROTD, and these distorted vocals are annoying. The same goes for Bananas- production sucks!

Bring in a proper producer next time that knows what he's doing!!! This is Deep Purple- not Kid Rock!!

But, they hired that producer. Maybe because of the "Kid Rock" thing.

I hope that they didn't hire him because of that, but Deep Purple is known to make some very stupid career moves from time to time. Remember Slaves and Masters?

More than the Morsified Gillan Band of today. They had Blackmore, (G)lover, Lord, Paice and a bad singer.
Today they have................The Rusty Nail & The unknowns. But, hey, they sell tickets so who cares?

Correct me if I am wrong - wasn't there a thread awhile back how the machine head sound/production was poor? Maybe I'm not understanding mix vs production vs whatever, but to me a good song is a good one that production can't ruin for me. I can only say I like the production/sound/mix of these albums far better than Perfect Strangers, House of and TBRO. Maybe I'm not as fussy as you with regard to these details.

Re: "Backyard" recording


My 2 cents on this:

DP have not had a well-produced album since Stormbringer with the exception of S&M and Purpendicular. All MK2a and MK3 albums are very well produced.

ROTD's production is OK, but is sketchy is some spots. The songs are excellent and I would love to hear them live.

Now the journeymen with three masters degrees between them,and back catalogs that span 60 years between them,and one with one of the most impressive resume's on the planet...are unknowns?
Since when did this be the case? emoticon

Definitely.

Btw, listen to PS, then HOBL and then S&M. Makes perfect sense!
