    Great!! Trying to get the CD here in the States at a reasonable price is a pain. I’ve had the album since it first came out and love it!

    One of the best “post-split”-albums of the Deep Purple family ever. A gem. Hopefully they were able to brush up the tracks of the canned 2nd album a bit more and from decent sources – and not from the worn out cassette tape Bernie Marsden gave to Tony Ashton on his birthday decades later.

    Great album, my cup of tea!

    1977 wasn’t really the time for this kind of music (so sad), but I still have various tracks from this album on my hard disc folder/USB stick with my favourite Bluesrock tunes.

    Have a nice Day!

    Very glad to read this. This album deserves much more appreciation than it usually gets. One of the best outcomes to follow Purple’s demise, along with IGB’s “Clear Air Turbulence”. Also, this rerelease is very much welcome as it is nearly impossible to find CD copies of this album without breaking the bank!

    I wonder if Roger’s “Elements” will ever see a rerelease as well…

    @ 8

    To my knowledge is that it has been released this way already in 2001.
