Woman From Tokyo alternate bridge Painted Horse Outtake Our Lady remix Rat Bat Blue writing sessions Rat Bat Blue remix First Day Jam unreleased instrumental A rather noisy album with the only break given during the aerial Jon Lord solo of the opening track, also the only "hit"of the album.

To my mind , only Rat Bat Blue is relatively better than the sub-par rest of the tracks for Purper standard. For Purple completists only!

As this was the only album that I had so I did enjoy playing the cassette. So I tried to spin the CD again after I watched them live. It's not bad at all.

It's a good but not essential hard rock music. Deep Purple followed up the world conquering "Machine head" with this clear attempt at creating a facsimile. Unfortunately, relationships within the band were rapidly reaching breaking point, and any semblance of harmony had all but disappeared.

The problem with "Who do we think we are" is that apart from the opening track "Woman from Tokyo", there is nothing whatsoever to get excited about. It is as if the band's composers are unwilling to submit anything decent to the sinking ship the credits are conveniently democratic , and the performers are doing only what is required of them.

While not quite up there with the ultimate Deep Purple songs, it is worthy of a place in any "Best of" collection. The song has prog overtones, with the driving rock which identifies the track being countered by a "Strange kind of woman" like centre section which sounds more than a little like the Kinks' "Tired of waiting".

Had the band come up with a few more songs of this quality, we may have been hailing this album as another DP great. Unfortunately, the inspiration pretty much evaporates as the track fades. Blackmore's brief solos are functional but dull. Jon Lord contributes some decent organ work, particularly on the otherwise forgettable "Rat bat blue", and Gillan does his best to sound excited when clearly he is not.

On a couple of tracks, "Smooth dancer" and "Our lady", we move into Uriah Heep territory, the latter having the choral harmonies of that fine band. The only other song worthy of mention is "Place in line" which is a decent but undistinguished upbeat blues. In all, a very average album which devotees of the band will probably find sufficiently in line with previous offerings to be of merit.

For the rest though, there are far better Deep Purple albums than this. While the outer sleeve of the LP is poor, the inside has some wonderful press clippings from the early days of Deep Purple, with headlines such as "Purple devastate Edinburgh", "Eating ban on Deep Purple men", and "Deep Purple taking over the world".

In remembrance of their fantastic live record MIJ, the Purple will create the opener " Woman from Tokyo" to their new beloved Japaneese audience. Great hard rock song with a good riff. Tempo is slower than their traditional openers during Mark II. Ian performs quite well here. A good hard rocking song again but nothing fancy; this is exactly the problem with this record.

Most of the tracks are good, but almost none is on par with "Machine" or "In Rock". The vocal parts, as I have already mentioned were strongly influenced by the left over track "Freedom" from the "Fireball" sessions two years before. It is a great piece of rock'n'roll music. Probably the highlight here, together with the title track. Side one is very good. Let's say that it is on par with "Fireball". B-side starts with "Rat Bat Blue" which is a good rocking track again.

Ian Paice and Jon Lord are at their best. Usually dispatched within 3 to 5 weeks. Arrives: Nov 9 - 30 Details.
