Yah. Strikes is Blackfoot for me. Saw em open for the Who & also for Foghat 79 80-ish. Blew Foghat off.
Machine Head had 4 alltime classic Purple tunes, (Space Truckin, Smoke on the Water, Lazy, & Highway Star), Fireball had none. I don't see how one can compare-equate these 2 records as being equal.
