M-. 70's re-issue. With insert. It's a little different than the "standard classic" ones that's been overplayed for some time now. The album's got great drumming, vocals & power, and some of the songs are more proggy than usual. Relationships between Blackmore & Gillan had become sour by this point, and that's probably why the album's a little fractured.
There are some great songs on this album. "Woman from Tokyo" is a classic, though a little but commercial sounding. Great power in the drums & vocals here, and I love the slow middlepart.
"Mary Long" is also great, with interesting lyrics by Gillan, to say the least. Mary Whitehouse must have been a very annoying person since both "Mary Long" and Pink Floyd's "Pigs" are about her.
"Super Trouper" is one of the best on the album, great power & great vocals & drums. Cool timing and guitar riffs, not unlike Led Zepps "Black Dog"
"Rat Bat Blue" is really proggy to be Deep Purple if one think about it. Many different parts, great riffing from Blackmore, and great keyboard solo from the master Jon Lord.
