Deep Purple ‎– In Rock

Listening to “Bohemian Rhapsody” put me on the classic rock path.  "Child In Time" is probably my favorite “played to death”  epic rock songs.  Maybe Freebird as well. Skynyrd next?

I’ll post it too.  I’ve heard the song way too many times but I’ve never owned “A Night At The Opera”, on any format.  So I turned down all the lights, smoked a joint and listened to “Bohemian Rhapsody” for the first time, on vinyl.
Context is everything.

JULIE DRISCOLL & BRIAN AUGER Open. Rare 1967 UK 10-track stereo vinyl LP, a great record that managed to join the dots between Mod R&B, Folk & Pop, including their interpretations of Donovan’s Season Of The Witch and Lowell Fulson’s Tramp, superb bluesy Hammond organ licks married to Driscoll’s hippie Dusty Springfield-esque vocals. The matt picture sleeve has pinched spine ends and remains in excellent condition with very little shelfwear to the edges & just a hint of ringwear, whilst the vinyl appears in fantastic barely played condition.

Zamrock essential!  So happy to finally own a copy.  Now Again always deliver the goods. It’s a label I feel comfortable buying anything from, without listening first.

NINA SIMONE Nina Simone And Her Friends An Intimate Variety Of Vocal Charm. 1959 USA 12-track high fidelity vinyl LP on the red & silver Bethlehem label, pasted picture sleeve. The sleeve has just a 1" seam split to the bottom at the opening edge and shows little wear, with the front cover art gloriously clear and the reverse with just a few light spots of discolouration. The vinyl has a few light cosmetic surface marks with a very small area of paper loss at the spindle hole, whilst the labels shows little sign of spindle wear indicating minimal play – a stunning copy.

Pike just gets better with age.  It’s become so I look forward to new HOF albums in the same way I anticipated Iron Maiden releases back in the 80s.  His riffs are as recognizeable as Maiden’s galloping, KK and Tipton’s dual guitar attack or Lemmy’s  Rickenbacker sound.  Pike just always delivers, live and in the studio, no matter which band he’s playing with.  My guess is that Electric Messiah will go down as one of High On Fire’s best efforts. The intensity just doesn’t let up for a second, everything just seems to get bigger and better with everything the man touches.  
And his gut is awesome. Best in showbusiness, him and Randy from Trailer Park Boys
