Paice Ashton Lord - "Remember The Good Times" (audio)

Το 1976, όταν διαλύθηκαν οι Deep Purple (προσωρινά όπως αποδείχθηκε), ο Jon Lord και ο Ian Paice συνεργάσθηκαν με τον Tony Ashton (Lord και Ashton είχαν ξανασυνεργαστεί στο παρελθόν) και δημιούργησαν τους Paice Ashton Lord (ή για συντομία, PAL). Τους συντρόφευσαν ο Bernie Marsden στις κιθάρες (βλ. Whitesnake, UFO, Cozy Powell's Hammer, Alaska, Babe Ruth κλπ) και ο Paul Martinez στα μπάσο (βλ. Robert Plant, Groove Holmes, Bernard Purdie, Dakota Staton).

Οι PAL έμειναν ενεργοί μέχρι το 1978. Κατάφεραν να κυκλοφορήσουν έναν δίσκο ("Malice in Wonderland" - Μάρτιος 1977), ενώ ο δεύτερος δεν ολοκληρώθηκε ποτέ. Το "Malice in Wonderland" επανακυκλοφόρησε αρχικά το 1995 με τρία live bonus τραγούδια, ενώ το 2001 η Purple Records το επανακυκλοφόρησε μαζί με οκτώ κομμάτια από τον δεύτερο -ανολοκλήρωτο- δίσκο των Paice Ashton Lord. Αυτή η έκδοση θα "ξαναβγεί" από την earMUSIC στα μέσα Μαΐου...

Δελτίο τύπου: «On May 17th earMUSIC will release a re-issue of Malice In Wonderland by Paice Ashton Lord originally released in 1977. Paice Ashton Lord was a short-lived but spectacular moment in the history of rock ‘n’ roll. It was August 1976 when Paice Ashton Lord emerged amidst much fanfare in the music press.

It was big news that drummer Ian Paice and organist Jon Lord were forming a new band together after the messy demise of Deep Purple. Having worked together before, Tony Ashton was on top of Jon Lord’s musicians wish list and became the singer, pianist and front man of the band.

They put out an advert in the music papers, did castings and in the end Bernie Marsden (Guitar) and Paul Martinez (Bass) completed the band together with additional backing singers and a brass section. One album release, a messed-up TV appearance, a tour and a never finished second album later the story of PAL ended in 1978. Bernie, Jon and then Ian joined Whitesnake, while Paice Ashton Lord faded into history. A history not only worth remembering but being celebrated again with this release.

Malice In Wonderland is the only album of the band. Influenced by Jon Lord and Tony Ashton’s previous collaborations it merged rock with big band Swing, Rhythm ‘n’ Blues and Funk. The one thing they didn’t want to end up being was laid-back. And they didn’t. Malice in Wonderland is driving and swinging feel good rock at its finest.

“PAL was trying to do something ahead of its time, the sort of thing Level 42 became, a cross between jazz and rock”. (Ian Paice).

Malice in Wonderland will be available as digipak, limited gatefold double vinyl and digital album. The re-issue includes over 30 minutes of remastered material from the long lost second album. Furthermore, the artwork contains so far unpublished photographs by Alan Messer, which have been scanned from the original negatives.»

  1. Απαντήσεις
    1. Σε οτιδήποτε "εμπλέκεται" το όνομα του Jon Lord είναι ενδιαφέρον (ανεξάρτητα από το αν μας αρέσει ή όχι). Φυσική νομοτέλεια...

  2. Λατρεμένα 70ς. Θα ακουστώ αναχρονιστικός αν πω ότι δε βγαίνει τέτοια μουσική πλέον;

  3. Οι Deep Purple ήταν κάτι παραπάνω από συγκρότημα. Όσα μέλη τους δοκίμασαν νέα καριέρα μετά τους DP έσκισαν. Ο Blackmore με τους Rainbow, ο Coverdale με τους Whitesnake, ο Lord στα προσωπικά του. Μέχρι και οι Ian Gillan Band μου αρέσουν.
