Hush (Live Us TV) Details Distributor: MSI Music Distribution Recording Type: Studio Recording Mode: Stereo Deep Purple: Rod Evans (vocals); Ritchie Blackmore (guitar); Jon Lord (keyboards); Nick Simper (bass); Ian Paice (drums). Principally recorded at Pye's Studio, London, England in May 1968. Originally released on Tetragrammaton (102). Includes liner notes by Digitally remastered by Peter Mew (Abbey Road Studios, London, England). This is the 1967 debut album by British hard rockers Deep Purple.Japanese remaster in an LP-replica sleeve.CD comes in Jpn LP Sleeve.The usual perception of early Deep Purple is that it was a band with a lot of potential in search of a direction. And that might be true of their debut LP, put together in three days of sessions in May of 1968, but it's still a hell of an album. From the opening bars of "And the Address," it's clear that they'd gotten down the fundamentals of heavy metal from day one, and at various points the electricity and the beat just surge forth in ways that were startlingly new in the summer of 1968. Ritchie Blackmore never sounded less at ease as a guitarist than he does on this album, and the sound mix doesn't exactly favor the heavier side of his playing, but the rhythm section of Nick Simper and Ian Paice rumble forward, and Jon Lord's organ flourishes, weaving classical riffs, and unexpected arabesques into "I'm So Glad," which sounds rather majestic here. "Hush" was the number that most people knew at the time (it was a hit single in America), and it is a smooth, crunchy interpretation of the Joe South song. But nobody could have been disappointed with the rest of this record -- one can even hear the very distant origins of "Smoke on the Water" in "Mandrake Root," once one gets past the similarities to Jimi Hendrix's "Foxy Lady"; by the song's extended finale, they sound more like the Nice. Their version of "Help" is one of the more interesting reinterpretations of a Beatles song, as a slow, rough-textured dirge. "Hey Joe" is a bit overblown, and the group clearly had to work a bit at both songwriting and their presentation, but one key attribute that runs through most of this record -- even more so than the very pronounced heaviness of the playing -- is a spirit of fun; these guys are obviously having the time of their lives rushing through their limited repertoire, and it's infectious to the listener; it gives this record much more of a '60s feel than we're accustomed to hearing from this band. [The EMI/Spitfire re-release from 2000 is notably superior to any prior version of the CD, made from the original master tape (which had been sent directly to the group's American label, Tetragrammaton, leaving EMI with a vinyl dub, astonishingly enough), with textures far closer and crisper than have ever been heard before -- there are also five bonus tracks, two very early outtakes from their earliest sessions, an alternate version of "Help," a BBC recording of "Hey Joe," and a searing live U.S. television performance of "Hush."] ~ Bruce Eder Japanese limited edition in an LP-style slipcase. Editorial Reviews 3 stars out of 5 - ...[contains] feuding organ and guitar, original frontman Rod Evans and his supper club vocals....'Hush' belts along nicely, while 'I'm So Glad' sounds like Mike Flowers Pop playing Cream...

Under Plessure Details Distributor: MSI Music Distribution Recording Type: Studio Recording Mode: Stereo Album Notes Digitally remastered Japanese limited edition in an LP-style slipcase. Queen: Freddie Mercury (vocals); Brian May (guitar); John Deacon (bass); Roger Taylor (percussion).Recorded at Mountain Studios, Montreux, Switzerland and Musicland Studios, Munich, Germany.This Queen album finds the popular British rock group offering up a catchy set of tunes that includes "Body Language" and "Under Pressure," the band's collaboration with David Bowie.The remastered Japanese special-edition release features a vinyl-inspired design.CD comes in Jpn LP Sleeve.1982's HOT SPACE is by far the most controversial album Queen ever released. Coming off a major disco hit with 1980's "Another One Bites The Dust," the band decided to take it a step further and released an album comprised mostly of tunes crafted from the same dance mold. This wouldn't have been a big deal for some bands, but the majority of Queen's fans were rock n' rollers, not disco buffs. Looking back, the band admits some trepidation at releasing HOT SPACE when they did, but there are indeed many strong Queen compositions included.The most renowned track is the Queen/David Bowie hit collaboration, "Under Pressure," a tip of the hat to the then-thriving new wave sound that remains one of Queen's all-time best tracks. Other highlights include one of the band's most underrated songs, "Calling All Girls," as well as the anti-rifle protest "Put Out the Fire," and the charming love song "Las Palabras De Amor (The Words of Love)." Of all the dance-oriented material, the best is undoubtedly the U.S. hit "Body Language," while "Dancer" and "Cool Cat" are worthwhile listens as well.
