Nice one Ad. Actually I think George Gershwin wrote Fascinating Rhythm, which
obviously influenced the main Burn riff.

cheers,

Yep nice post. Influences are a funny thing. It's a fine line between "being influenced by..." and "ripping off..." Not sure what the definitions are but nice set of comparisons there. It's like one of those quiz questions isn't it? What's the link between Benny Goodman, George Gershwin and Deep Purple?

U Fool No 1

Very interesting indeed, Ad! I have a suggestion for what could have been an influence for writing "You fool no one". Many (I mean MANY) that I know always said, when they heard "You fool .." for the first time, it would start like "Blue Spanish Eyes" (I think its originally by Al Martino ..but many did cover it, Englebert, Elvis ect.). Im not kidding! If you listen to it very seriously, you really can see the similarities. What does the others here think about it?

Dont forget to join the chat today, there we can discuss it and many other things!

cheers, Achim

"A" 200 - the album's closing track, an instrumental played to a 'Bolero' rhythm, was written in Montreux and builds slowly, with Jon playing the lead on multi-tracked synthesizer and originally titled "Touching Cloth" in the demo stages. It's not clear why the "A" was stressed on the sleeve. "A lot of people think (the title's) to do with science fiction, but it isn't....", Coverdale owned up later. Legend has it down to "A-200", an American mens product of the same name!! Only the second of the album's tracks that wouldn't make it to their live shows, though Jon sometimes included parts of it during "Space Truckin'".

Especially when Blackmore played both of the riffs during the same song on the last Mk III tour. That must have confused the rest of the boys (Paicey excepted as he could cope with anything)

Not strictly "on topic", but came across this brief soundbyte the other day of Blackmore talking about his influences.
