PS: Jon Lord's best friend (Dr. Malcolm Arnold) who at that time conducted the orchestra set told in his reviews that the Beatles also did several songs with the orchestra before in 1967, but Beatles did not play for the whole album set like Deep Purple did in this amazing cd.
Many Deep Purple fans are saying that Purple absolutely rules but Beatlemania has lost!
Not surprisingly, the orchestration is a bit bombastic. I would have enjoyed more flowing strings and less staccato--that would have contrasted nicely with Deep Purples contribution. But, even this melodramatic orchestration works to create a tantalizing fusion.
If you just want more Highway Star Spacetrucking Women from Tokyo Smoking on the Water, this isn't the CD for you. If you like symphonic music and admire the art of rock, consider this experience. It's well worth the money.
