Holly smokes...brings back some memories but that is horrible music Expat!
Deep Purple were not the finest writers nor musicians. The neighbours must love you and your wonderful selection of old school music.

Different folks different strokes. At least it is raw rock not plinky electro someting.

You must be in a minority of non appreciation, as many music shop ban it being plaid, as EVERY budding guitarist tries to play it.

Maybe if you are immersed in a genre you can appreciate the little nuances between certain artists, but as I hardly ever play music.... classical. rock, reggae, pop or what ever nowadays, I just hear these latest not overly inspiring renditions and wonder why they bothered. Lets face it there is hardly anything new that would really grip you. Or rather .... me.

Another classic song. Brother Daniel goes to Vietnam but doesn't return.

Never heard it before, not surprising really, I find it hard to believe it sneaked up the charts without me knowing (pretty rubbishy). despite that I did have an EJ double CD at one point. The case of which is floating around my work bench somewhere.

The song says he can see the red tail lights of the plane going to SPAIN. Just looked up the back story, and as you say a missing verse explains the Vietnam bit.... who knew.... or cared?

Thought he was singing about one of his boyfriends going off to Majorca. Brother being a convenience.

First time I actually listened to the words, and I must have heard it dozens of times on the radio.

Or I guess you could listen to that plastic drivel posted at the beginning?????

There is so much GOOD stuff out there, but most of it has age. It's a bit hard to be original when just about everything worth playing has already happened.
