Lead Up To The Album:

  • Moxy was formed in Toronto in 1974. Douglas “Buzz” Shearman had previously been in a band called Leigh Ashford that had formed in 1967.  They had some fair success including a top 30 single.
  • Earl Johnson, Terry Juric and Billy Wade had been in another Torongo band called Outlaw Music.  Johnson and Wade had also been in a previous lineup of Leigh Ashford.
  • When Leigh Ashford broke up in 1973 Shearman teamed up with Johnson, wade and Kim Fraser on bass and continued to use the name Leigh Ashford.
  • Fraser left shortly after that and Johnson recommended Juric.  They then changed their name to Moxy and released “Can’t You See I’m a Star” as a single in 1974.
  • They were soon signed to Polydoor and went to record their first album in the early months of 1975.
  • During the sessions Johnson had a disagreement with M. Smith, the producer, and Smith brought in Bolin to record solos on six of the eight songs on the album.
  • Bolin was in the studio next door and Moxy’s manager Roland Paquin knew of Tommy from his work with James Gang.
  • Tommy came in and played the solos on very short notice.
  • It’s noted that his guitar tone is similar to his tone on Spectrum.
  • From Chris Schild’s notes: In January of 1975, when Tommy Bolin was asked to play the solos for Moxy’s first album, he recorded demos for Teaser at Brothers studio of the Beach Boys in Santa Monica CA.. Moxy was 30 minutes away at Sound City Studios in Van Nuys CA. Tommy played solos on six of the eight songs, and they got massive airplay on US radio stations. I know for sure that Tommy was paid on Cocaine, it is said half an ounce per track, so he must have gotten three ounces.
  • Tom Stephenson, Stanley Sheldon’s cousin and keyboarder of Energy also played on a track on the Moxy album.
The disappointment of opening a mid-90’s CD release, being greeted with a blank white back to the album cover.

    Reception and Review

    • After Bolin worked on this album he went on to work on Teaser and went on to join Deep Purple.
    • Moxy would get some significant airplay in the US where the album was released on Mercury records. It was released on Polydor in Canada.
    • Tommy being on the album helped the band get some traction for the album.
    • The Tommy Bolin Band played at the Convention Center Arena in San Antonio on July 13, 1976. They played with Moxy, opening for Santana. It was a Feyline production (by Tommy Bolin,s manager Barry Fey). Tommy Bolin jammed two songs with Moxy on stage. There’s a poster of that event.
    • The next gig was in Albuquerque NM, July 16, 1976. Moxy did not take part, just the Tommy Bolin Band and Santana. That’s where Santana joined the Bolin Band on stage to jam. The only existing photo of the event, you can clearly see Norma Jean Bell in the background.
    • They went on to headline in the US with AC/DC as their opening act.
    • They went on to record Moxy II which many believe Tommy played on as well (he did not).
    • Shearman began having vocal trouples and was replaced with Brian Maxim, their soundman. They broke up shortly after that.
    • Mike Rynowski then joined the band and released “Under the Lights” in 1978.
    • Rynowski would go on to change his name to Mike Reno and went on to form the group Loverboy.
    • Buzz Shearman died on June 16, 1983 in a motorcycle act.
    • The back of the CD states: “Speed ills . . . and Moxy was a band on the fast track!”
    • Back of the CD ends with: “Shearman later made his final exit in a fiery motorcycle crash. Speed kills!”
    • Earl Johnson: “I was very surprised to see the two of the songs on the TOMMY BOLIN 2 CD set (“The Ultimate”), which I have a copy of. I wrote the two tunes mentioned and it’s always nice to get a complement, when people think enough of your songs to include them on such a disc.”

    Lead up to the Album:

    • As we left off in our “The House of Blue Light” episodes Ian and Roger were drained after recording the album and Glover had the perfect idea to recover from studio burnout: recording another album!
    • Glover: “I was living alone in my house in Connecticut and Ian came over and stayed for quite a long while, I think it was a large chunk of the summer of ‘86. It was a long, hot summer and I don’t think we quite achieved the objective but along the way we realised that we liked writing odd stuff together. In Episode Six, in the sixties, we were a songwriting partnership but when we joined Deep Purple we sort of gravitated to our own particular areas; although we still wrote some lyrics together, he developed his own direction and style of writing and singing while I concentrated more on the bass guitar and writing music. To a certain extent, that summer we rediscovered our former selves again.”
    • Glover described the experience as being very freeing, exploring their musical roots, and consuming large quantities of alcohol and other sorts of ‘inspiration’ around.  Of that Glover says, “I’ll say no more.”
    • They brought very little with them to Monsterrat.  Ian brought harmonicas and they both brought acoustic guitars. Glover also brought his Hondo LLonghorn bass, a Fender Strat, a Linn drum machine, a Yamaha QX-1  sequencer and a Yamaha DX-7.  They had no computer.
    • Glover, in Kerrang: “Our reason for making the album was to have a good time and to do something people wouldn’t expect from us, and do something we couldn’t within the confines of DeepPurple.”
    • Ian, in the same Kerrang article: “When you think about it, Purple have always thrived pretty much on diversity. Jon Lord did his Concerto and I did ‘Jesus Christ Superstar.’ It’s good because it keeps the frustrations away. You can let loose with your own ideas.”

    Album Tracks:

    All tracks written by Ian Gillan and Roger Glover except where noted.

    The first phase was recorded in Montserrat including Clouds and Rain, Evil Eye, She took My Breath Away, Dislocated, Via Miami, and I Thought No (as well as some tracks later released as bonus content).

    The second phase was done at The Power Station in New York where they assembled musicians and recorded “I Can’t Dance To That,” “Can’t Believe You Want To Leave,” and “Telephone Box” as well as bonus content.

    Side One:

    1. Clouds and Rain
      • Done in the first phase of recording.
    2. Evil Eye
      • Done in the first phase.
      • Built over an African-inspired chant.  Glover said it was the first song that was inspired by their surroundings while recording.
    3. She Took My Breath Away
      • First phase.
      • Virgin wanted to make this the first single on it but Gillan didn’t like the idea and favored Dislocated instead.
    4. Dislocated
      • This was written the very first day in Montserrat.
      • Glover said this song set the mood for their time in Montserrat.
      • Glover described this track as “wacky.”
      • Gillan said, “It has one of the best bass lines I’ve ever heard, so simple and wonderful.  Lyrically it makes no sense at all, but as the whole concept was ‘off the wall’ we thought it would be a reasonable representation of the whole album.”
    5. Via Miami
      • First phase.
      • Glover compares this to Stray Cats as being “Elvis-inspired.”

    Side Two:

    1. I Can’t Dance To That
      • First song recorded during second phase in New York.
    2. Can’t Believe You Wanna Leave (R. Penniman)
      • Featuring Dr. John
      • Cover of a Little Richard track.
      • They said Dr. John was supposed to show up at 3pm but didn’t show up until almost 6pm.  They were getting annoyed because he lived very nearby.  Dr. John explained he’d been in New Orleans and just got back the night before.
      • Song was recorded live in the studio.  Gillan said it “still sends shivers up and down my do-dabs.”
    3. Lonely Avenue (D. Pomus)
      • Appeared on the “Rain Man” soundtrack.
    4. Telephone Box
      • Reached No.l 15 on the US Billboard charts
      • Ian tells a story of how on the last Purple tour and Roger decided to take a luxury bus instead of a plane.  He sid a friend went to use the toilet on the bus and there was a phone in there.  He asked if he could call home but they told him it was an internal phone and could only call the driver.  The friend said, “Who wants to live in a telephone box!”  That gave them the idea for the song.
    5. I Thought No
      • First phase.
      • Everything on this is played by Glover and Gillan.  Gillan on guitar and harmonica, Roger on bass, piano, and drums.

    Reception and Review

    • After all of the recording they flew back to Montserrat to mix the album then went on tour. They weren’t happy with the mixes they had so at the end of the tour they returned to the Power Station with Nick Blagona and mixed the album.
    • Gillan said there was a lot of skepticism or cynicism about their motives behind doing this album but both said it was just some fun.
    • They went back to New York to work on overdubs when Ritchie broke his thumb.
    • Review by Mike Ladano
      • Accidentally on Purpose probably kept Ian and Roger sane at the time.  That has to be why it sounds so gleeful.  They needed this.  Does a Deep Purple fan “need” this?  No.  But they’d find some good times here regardless.
    • Gillan in Kerrang: “I’m sure we will piss of a lot of Deep Purple fans who will buy our album thinking they’ll hear watered down Deep Purple, or something, but we don’t want to do that.”
    • From liner notes:
      • Gillan: “We kind of moved on after this record. However I look back on it with great affection and certainly consider it one of the top five records of my career.
      • “It’s the chemistry or more accurately the alchemy that turns the ingredients into gold. When you remove Paice, Lord and Blackmore from the equation and put two old mates together on a Caribbean Island (Montserrat) to write and then to NYC to record, and then add maestro Nick Blagona into the mix, it’s like getting time off for bad behaviour; you don’t necessarily deserve it, but what wicked fun it can be!”

Looks like the stars align for an amazing show (if it doesn’t get delayed that is) And I suppose the 40th anniversary of Straight Between the Eyes, Magic, Saints An’ Sinners, Hughes/Thrall as well. Also not to brag or anything, but in 2021 I had listened to over 3,000 minutes of this podcast just on Spotify alone (and apparently my favorite song was “King of Dreams” but that’s besides the point). I’m definitely looking forward to more episodes, and seeing as there is so much ground to cover it’s gonna be a fun ride!

      • @artsmithdrums
      • The one that sticks with me is the Straight Between the Eyes episode, I’d forgotten how good the album was, cover aside, and realised that it’s aged really well too.
    • @sabbathfans
      • My favorite moment isn’t from any particular episode. It was the fact that the episodes I listened to have turned my opinions around on several records. Also, I enjoy screaming at your ratings in the car – “How the frick can you rate that a 5? What’s wrong with you?” 🙂
    • Peter Gardow
      • @gardowp
      • A fine year of episodes overall – enjoyed being part of some of the live episodes, however the “Maine Pizzeria Reviews” stands out – as a “5 Dirty Grinder” episode. What a coincidence – ordered out some Japanese tonight – a LOL moment when I saw this menu item -“not rude”

      • The Turning To Crime originals stream was the highlight for me, that was so much fun! I also enjoyed the variety in the episodes this year, like the Burn isolated tracks or Roger on MTV as well as the recent one on Ritchie’s ES335
    • Robert Smith
      • @RobertS66580395
      • ·The Burn Isolated Tracks was a great episode. But for me, it’s hard to beat John’s reactions during the Warhorse episode.

      • Bobby Harrison Funkist episode from a musical standpoint. I really liked that record and still plan on buying it.
      • Like many, Maine Pizza Reviews is a favorite for unknown reasons. It should be a waste of time, but it was awesome!
      • The Black Country Christmas was by far my favorite! (This is a comment that will of course be relevant soon!)
    • Raff Kaff
      • We finally get to hear the early Whitesnake Albums, which I love. I liked the episodes that are a little outside the box like the Doors smackdown, The Who did it better episode and Blackmore’s Gibson.
      • The shows about the live albums had just a great atmosphere.

    Lead up to the Album:

    • This was the brainchild of Al Kooper and Jeff Baxter.
    • Al Kooper
    • Jeff Baxter
      • Jeff “Skunk” Baxter
      • https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jeff_Baxter
      • Worked extensively with Steely Dan, The Doobie Brothers, 
      • Most recently, and oddly, he has been working as a missile defense consultant. He also works on the NASA advisory board.
      • He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2020 as a member of the Doobie Brothers.
    • In the Connoisseur Collection liner notes, Simon Robinson says that someone saw this album in a Manchester HMV with a sticker on it saying that the vocals were by Glenn Hughes.  The sleeve did not back this up so it must’ve seemed suspicious.
    • Information on this album is very hard to come by. Simon Robinson writes that he wonders how the Manchester HMV knew Glenn was on it.
    • In 1978 Al Kooper began working with a group which was going to be named The Hollywood Horns.  Richie Hayward of  Little Feat was going to be on drums and Jeff Baxter on guitar. Elliott Randall was also going to play guitar in the group.
    • Glenn Hughes was brought in for vocals.
    • Hayward was injured in a bike crash three weeks before going into the studio and had to be replaced with studio musicians.
    • This project fell apart and there was music written by Kooper, Hayward, and Baxter that was never recorded.
    • Casablanca, the label who bankrolled this project, decided to clean up some of the tapes from the sessions and release them to recoup some of the losses they suffered from this project.
    • Hughes was unhappy with the way this was handled and asked to remain uncredited on this album.
    • There wasn’t a huge release with Hughes’s name off the album and it soon became difficult to find.

    • Robinson speculates that the title “Four on the Floor” is that there were four tracks left on the floor.  That being said Robinson admits to being unaware that this was how manual shift cars are referred to outside of Europe: four (gears) on the floor.
    • My understanding is that this refers to a 4/4 time signature in electronic, pop, and disco music.
    • Connoisseur Collection released in 1990.
    • Our friend Mike Eriksson is thanked in the liner notes.

    Reception and Review

    • https://ultimateclassicrock.com/deep-purple-turning-to-crime-album-review/
      • But these surprises are surprisingly convincing. Guitarist Steve Morse gets to employ some different playing techniques, Don Airey rolls out a little barrelhouse piano on some of the tracks and drummer Ian Paice sounds assured in the different rhythmic approaches. Gillan, meanwhile, can sing just about anything, so his voice winds up being the best ambassador for this unlikely fare.
      • The closing “Caught in the Act,” meanwhile, fuses together bits of five ’60s favorites – Jeff Beck Group’s “Going Down,” Booker T. & the MG’s’ “Green Onions,” the Allman Brothers Band‘s “Hot ‘Lanta,” Led Zeppelin‘s “Dazed and Confused” and the Spencer Davis Group’s “Gimme Some Lovin'” – into a mostly instrumental medley that shows why Mark VIII is one of the group’s best lineups and more potent than most of its Purple predecessors.
    • https://bravewords.com/reviews/deep-purple-turning-to-crime
      • 6.5
      • My one gripe with Turning To Crime is that the selection of songs was rather predictable in the sense that it makes perfect sense for Deep Purple to cover a track like Cream’s “White Room”. It’s obvious that Deep Purple is targeting their efforts to their most prominent demographic whom they’ve already won over long ago, but I wish the band would’ve taken a different approach — maybe even covering songs from an artist or era that we wouldn’t have necessarily expected.
      • Despite wanting the band to step a bit outside of their comfort zone, the band’s latest efforts have continued to surprise fans with their level of quality; and I am still incredibly elated that 53 years after the band’s debut in 1968, Deep Purple are still recording and releasing music new (or in this case old), for rock fans of multiple generations to continue to enjoy.
      • An inexplicably odd, badly worded, and poorly researched article: https://pennsylvanianewstoday.com/genesis-2-nights-at-wells-fargo-center-and-6-new-album-releases-seven-in-seven-thereporteronline/273622/New release
        Deep Purple — “Conversion to Crime”
        “Turning to Crime” arrives just 15 months after “Whoosh!”. — Deep Purple’s 21st studio album. Despite the death of guitar wizard Ritchie Blackmore nearly 30 years ago and the death of keyboardist Jon Lord in 2012, he received high praise from critics who praised the band’s ever-evolving creativity. This new release is the first DP album of a track that wasn’t written by the band. This is a collection of songs previously recorded by other artists, such as Cream’s “White Room,” Fleetwood Mac’s “Oh Well,” and Bob Dylan’s “Watching the River Flow.”

    • At the $5.99 “Nice Price” Tier – Robert Smith!
      • After listening to the podcast for such a long time, I thought it was time for me to put my money where my mouth is. I’ve just enlisted at the Fielding Fowler level as I thought he could use the company !
      • I do listen to other podcasts too (none are quite as enjoyable) but one of the other podcasters told me it’s a bit like sending a message in a bottle, which is a good way of putting it. You probably only hear from a fraction of the listeners but I’m sure there are a lot like me who look forward to their Monday DPP episode and your chats about food, drink etc. Oh and the music too.

      • Something I look forward to in my week
      • As an avid Purple fan and connoisseur of their extended family, this podcast is a treat for looking in depth about things I know about and introducing me to new wild bands and meeting of minds that I never would’ve even thought about. (Thought I could wait as long as it takes for the Hughes Turner Project episode to come around because I have no clue how that band was even conceived to be a good idea) But ramblings aside, the hosts are perfect in encapsulating that feeling of listening to a record you heard about for a while but could never find in your stores or just buying a new record and listening to it for the first time and I love that. On top of that THEY’RE HILARIOUS!!! My highlights are Nate’s story about the dog that had muffins fall on it and the James Gang song about being Norwegian. Keep up the god’s work you two are putting in, it’s so dearly appreciated.
