Re: "Backyard" recording


What kind of sense does TBRO make? emoticon

The intro to Anya...cosmic sense,and happens to blow the entire catalog of Blackmores Night away...whats he thinking?

The rest of the album give or take two or three more tracks...makes very little sense to me...especially when you consider the overall worst production job ever on a Purpe record...by far...making less sense by the second. emoticon

Anyways..I think the production is fine...although when Gillan's voice it's because he's singing loudly into the mic without the part being re done or having the levels lowered. That's not excusable. Aside from that I like the production. Ian Paices drum sound is captured much better here then on Bananas, Gillan sounds better except for the loud distorted parts and Steve's guitar sound is more enjoyable. As for the echoing on CQA...I kinda like it.

I agree Brad...with the Gillan part only.


And Rezi,the question of relevence may lie more in the other albums you mentioned,but you left out the biggest dud of them all. emoticon

posticon Re: "Backyard" recording


Last night I was listening to ROTD at a listening station. Sampled a few tracks because I wanted to hear it through a different set of headphones. Sounded great.

Then I played the CD right next to ROTD, Journey's latest "Generations". Boring! A lot of anthem type songs with a very slick production. Within minutes I was so glad DP/Bradford don't go for that sort of sound.

I hear alot a crying about the "bad production", but on comparing the two, I was glad for the "rougher" approach.
But that's just me.

Yeah, well, that's your opinion. But the build-up to what became S&M is, with hindsight, easy to see. DP (yes, DP, not Rainbow, not Blackmore or his mom) basically tried to do an Aerosmith. They failed.

Re: "Backyard" recording


Someone mentioned the horrific sounding TBRO,this ROTD mix may be with it's flaws,but that album takes the cake for the single worst production job of any Purple album.......ever.
It may be my opinion,but not just,guaranteed. emoticon

Re: "Backyard" recording


No,I disagree

the sound was intended to be the live sound, the record was intended to sound as a live record

It was to be a spontaneous record and it is
The band has always been a live band that has paid more attention to concerts than to studio albums, and producing perfect sound

I think if we can hear good songs and the chemistry and this live heavy rock sound then everything is fine. for me that what dp is all about.

coming back to ROTD specifically, it sounds great to me, it sounds fresh, better than bananas , purpendicular (this one sounds too sterile and there is too little piano sound)and as good as Abandon

In some places mix could have been better (somebody mentioned the piano solo in junkyard blues - I agree) but all in all the album sounds great

I guess it is all about expectations. If you expect perfect sound and perectly made albums like Radiohead, Peter Gabriel or Pink Floyd made in the past, then you will be disapointed.
But if you take into consideration that DP is a live band that focuses on sponteneity, then you might agree that the ROTD album is close to the essence of contemporary Deep Purple
