Recorded in Montreux, Switzerland, in November 1973. BURN was the first album to feature the Mk 3 line-up of DEEP PURPLE, with David Coverdale and Glenn Hughes joining the band. Released worldwide in February 1974, it went top 10 in America and Britain. Many of the tracks went straight into the live set, and remain amongst the most popular the band has ever done. This remaster breathes new life into the studio material; the epic blues-based Mistreated, the soulful Sail Away, the inventive percussive drive of You Fool No One and Burn itself have never sounded better. Bonus material includes a rare instrumental B-side, and four powerful new digital mixes from the 16 track masters.

Seconded!

The remastering is good, but the remixes are just out of this world. Vocals are crystal-clear, bass is boosted (but still retaining the trebly Rickenbacker sound) - but not to the detriment of any other components.

Terrific job - well done EMI!

cheers
John

yep. got it from play.com yesterday and its a great job. played it full blast and it jumps out the speakers at you. the remastering has made a bigger difference than i expected. the remixes even better. Coronarias Redig sounds much better than i remember it. Sail Away should be in Glenn & Chad's set.

Icon27 BURN the best

This month's UK, Classic Rock magazine, lists the Top 20 Rock reissues of 2004.

No.1, as chosen by Classic Rock critics (!): BURN, beating the more critically fashionable Tommy, London Calling, Rumours, etc.

Seems the new management over there have finally realised what music they're supposed to be covering

Here's my comments from the reviews section:


Ok now I listened to both version with headphones. The new one is more bassier and punchier and livelier...The old one in comparison sounds like an Am radio. One of the good things about remasters is they also are able to remove the tape hiss without compromising the sound. For example, on the original CD you can hear the tape hiss on the intro to MJTYLife and on the new one it's not there. Another thing about Coronarias is you can hear some of the melody of Rainbow's Catch the Rainbow....(which was also later stolen during the ending soaring guitar melody of Coverdale's Blindman!!)

Icon27 Burn: 30th Anniversary Edition

Star Publications (Malaysia)
Reviewer: SUJESH PAVITHRAN

Remastered and remixed, plus a rare B-side, photos, a booklet and notes ... which steadfast Deep Purple fan wouldnít be tempted, I ask you?

Burn, recorded in late 1973 and released the subsequent year, was the first album featuring DPís under-rated "Mark III" line-up. Ian Gillan and Roger Glover had left, David Coverdale and Glenn Hughes taking their places, but Ritchie Blackmore, Ian Paice and Jon Lord continued to drive the bandís signature sound.

Despite some excellent, gut-gripping rock, Burn never ranked highly in criticsí lists and if you glance back at the DP back-catalogue, itís easy to understand why. The original line-upís Shades of Deep Purple (1968) and Deep Purple (1969), and legendary "Mark II" albums like Deep Purple in Rock (1970), Fireball (1971) and Machine Head (1972) were hard acts to follow.

Yet Burn was a cracking album, containing blistering solos from Blackmore and Lord, with Paice as inspired as ever - the controlled fury of his drumming on the title track proves thereís nothing quite like him in full throttle. The album also delivered a classic DP slow-burner in Mistreated, and other gems like You Fool No One, Might Just Take Your Life and "A" 200, the last featuring a rare synth intro.

This version of the band would record just one more album, Stormbringer, before Blackmore left to form Rainbow (he and Gillan would drift in and out of DP over the next two decades), and the rest is a convoluted story of reunions and such, the best known of which is Perfect Strangers ("Mark II") in the mid-1980s.

Three decades after Burn, we get to re-examine it in better detail - all eight tracks from the original have been remastered and remixed, with two versions offered for Burn, Mistreated, You Fool No One and Sail Away. Also included is an instrumental, Coronorias Redig, with Blackmore at the fore.

Deep Purple albums (like Black Sabbath ones) have seldom been known for their sonic quality, but Burn: 30th Anniversary Edition is an eye (and ear) opener. So much into the future, and itís still a notch or two above whatever else is new and trendy in the rock circuit today.

Good news for you Yanks

The remastered edition of Burn is due to be released in the USA by Warners in the next few weeks. Track wise it will be absolutely identical to EMI's UK edition. The only overall difference is that the US version will not have an outer slipcase.

Icon47 More good news!!

Sounds like what EMI did with the remastered Machine Head...I bought the import version when it was released and I have it in front of me as I type...what a classy package and it is a shame that the artwork often is butchered when the CD's are released here..think The Way It Is....

But hey...you can't blast the artwork and drive your neighbors crazy now..can you??

All knobs to the right!!
