Deep Rainbow at it's best

Don't let my review title fool you. This is a great Deep Purple album that features three Rainbow members. Ritchie Blackmore, Roger Glover and Joe Lynn Turner join forces with Jon Lord and Ian Paice to make a great and commercially oriented classic. All the classic Purple elements with a touch of Rainbow. Joe Lynn Turner sings very, very good on this offering. The suggested cuts are King Of Dreams, The Cut Runs Deep, Fire In The Basement, Breakfast In Bed, Love Conquers All, and Too Much Is Not Enough. An album that features at least six songs as singles must be good, but don't take my word for it. Buy it...Joe Lynn Turner refers to this album as the last great Deep Purple record. Care to find out?

Blackmore Turner Overdrive.

Slaves and Masters isn't Deep Purple's worst album but it's also not one of their best. Joe Lynn Turner was well suited for Rainbow but not so much for Deep Purple. Song wise, this isn't a bad record, just a very commercial sounding one, not too far removed from the last Rainbow. It's a terrific sounding album and a much more unified album than it's troubled predecessor. Favorite songs include King Of Dreams, the shuffle Fire in the Basement and Breakfast in Bed. Blackmore loves this album. Isn't that nice?

Slaves and Masters (1991)

This lineup was not a good idea. The only good song on this album is King Of Dreams.
