Deep Purple vocalist Ian Gillan and Black Sabbath guitarist Tony Iommi joined forces for Sabbath's 1984 Born Again release and then surprised everyone with the charity single "Out of My Mind" in 2011. Their WhoCares project is mixed in here with a number of oddities and rarities from the vaults. The version of the Deep Purple classic "Smoke on the Water" with Ronnie James Dio and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra is a moment of delightful grandeur. The previously unreleased "Easy Come, Easy Go," by Repo Depo with Gillan, is a top-notch hard rock track. WhoCares' "Holy Water" makes its first appearance on an album, while Gillan's "Hole in My Vest," which had been a vinyl single b-side, makes its first album appearance. Of historical interest is a vintage track from Ian Gillan and The Javelins performing Marvin Gaye's R&B classic "Can I Get a Witness?" "Dick Pimple" is a previously unreleased Deep Purple track.
WHO CARES? I SURE DO
If you have 12.00 to spare this is a must have for any hard rock fan. Classic musicians showing all of us once again how it is done. IOMMI & GILLIAN you think would be enough , oh how about , jon lord, linde lindstrom, nicko mcbrain, jason newstead, glenn hughes, Roger Glover, Ian Paice ,Dr. john and oh yeah ronnie james dio. Just those names alone should get you to click buy. Plus S.O.T.W. with the london symphony orchestra YES!!!!
A big thanks to another great super group collaberation. It was worth the wait. CHEERS!
It's about time for this compilation!
These legends on this disc should be heard by all the people of the world!! Tony Iommi is the creator of metal and Ian Gillan rocked the world in Deep Purple so the fact that these guys are together again for another album (even though it's all old material) with other superstars is awesome to say the least.. Crank it up!!!
The optimism of a "Supergroup" creating super music doesn't happen here. Very few do (Blind Faith on exception). The tired, retrod structures and lame executions do nothing to change that concept. I loved deep Purple back in the day, and live were very exciting. Give it up boys.
