I'd say Hot Space, but I think Queen and I are probably the only people who think it's a flipping excellent album

Ritchie plays like a Cello on No No No with the volume knob.
I'm pretty sure that was on "Fools" rather than "No, No, No". Yeah, you're right in saying that most people today probably wouldn't sit still for it, but it didn't make it a bad record then.

Re: Albums bands might've wished they hadn't made.

I liked it myself, but I'm a guithead. As for Fireball track, yes they play the hell out of it, but it's the one organ solo of Lordy's I don't like. He's was awesome on Burn & Highway Star, 2nd to none as a hard rock organ soloist.

The Lyrics to No No No are VERY good, almost anti hippie. Do we love each other No no no, is it getting better, no no no. An honest appraisal. Some might say cynical. Gillan did some nice lyrics on Born Again also. I'd say best voice of that era. Sorry Plant fans, Ian was the man.

Awesome range & power, but like Planty, not the best frontman per se. But in that time period,67-73, show was less important than it became when Alice Cooper & then Kiss arrived. Purps WERE a good show however, mainly down to Ritchie.

Re: Albums bands might've wished they hadn't made.

Fireball is a classic Purple album, on a level with Machine Head. And while I understand that most people don't like Stormbringer, and the band wishes they hadn't made it, I think it's a fine album.

>Blackfoot Vertical Smiles.

That's one of the ones with Ken Hensley, isn't it?

Re: Albums bands might've wished they hadn't made.

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.

Now if they had gone in this direction, then maybe they could've pulled it off.

Re: Albums bands might've wished they hadn't made.

& to make the thread drift a bit, Purple of the big 3, ( Sabs,Zep & Purple were in my view the biggest & most significant progenitors of heavy rock-metal of the 70's), were alone in playing REALLY fast stuff. Fireball & Burn to be exact.

They weren't a metal band, but did have elements of it in them. That was one of em. Sabs played mostly slow. Fastest track perhaps was Never Say Die. Which was nowhere near as fast as the aforementioned Purple tracks. Zep played Communication Breakdown, but no other fast stuff.

Rats in the Cellar by Aerosmith was pretty fast, & Queens Stone Cold Crazy kinda fast, but these came out 74-75, well behind the Purps.

I forgot Alice Coopers Holy Muscle of Love. Pretty fast for that time.

The Who: Face Dances, It's Hard, and Endless Wire - They really should have hung it up after Keith Moon died, even moreso after John Entwistle passed away.

I know Ozzy wishes he'd never made The Ultimate Sin.

Ever hear the debut of Captain Beyond, which featured intitial Purple frontman Rod Evans from the days when the Purp began life as a psychedellic pop outfit? That's another early example of fast-playing hard rock. Sir Lord Baltimore from the same era also have a couple of tracks in the same vein.

Grand Funk Railroad, circa Live Album and after, had a fair number of tunes that fit the "fast hard rock" category.

Brooks & Dunn - Tight Rope

Every other album of theirs has songs that still get airplay or live performances, but songs from that one got dropped pretty quickly.
