    • https://www.thehighwaystar.com/FAQ/trivia.html
      • Who is Alerik?
      • We haven’t found out. Roger said it was Blackmore’s song name, so that he didn’t know; he seemed to remember a king Alerik from English history, but was uncertain. Another possible source is the Michael Moorcook-books, as I seem to have read a suggestion about Elric (the one with the sword named Stormbringer, y’know)’s father being called Alerik, i.e. the Son of Alerik is Elric himself. But this is highly unverified.

    • https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fire,_Ice_and_Dynamite
    • Movie trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LqPs5AaOA9g
    • Roger Glover:
      • ‘Fire Ice and Dynamite was a movie project that was offered to us. Jon and Ian Paice were not in the States at the time and weren’t interested. Ritchie wanted to do it so we used a riff idea of his that the band didn’t want, Joe wrote some words and I constructed it in the studio, playing keyboards and drum machine. It was at a bad time in the band’s history and we were probably at our most dysfunctional. I haven’t heard it in decades but I don’t think it is any good.'”
      • Jon Lord was on tour in Europe with “Rock’n’Blues Olympic Circus” with Chris Farlowe, Roger Chapman, Tony Ashton, Pete York.
      • Roger allegedly programmed the drums, maybe using drum samples of Ian Paice playing.

Album Art & Booklet Review

  • Steve Vai endorsement:
  • When I was fourteen, I bought a guitar for five dollars. I had heard about a hot guitar teacher in my town named Joe Satriani, he was a few years older than me and went to the same school. I called him for lesions and went to his house with my $5.00 guitar and a pack of strings (for 3 years). Through Joe, I saw what true musicality was. His playing never cease to venture into unexplored realms. As a role model his attitude is totally professional but there’s always the unexpected element of surprise. His personality reflects a subtle spirituality. He’s an incredible inspiration. Love ya Joe.
        • –Steve Vai
  • 1988 Reissue (Blue Transparent Joe Satriani Cover):
    • Art Direction – David Bett
    • Photography By – Glen La Ferman
    • This is the artwork used on all releases prior to the original release from 1988 on.
    • The Ibanez 540S guitar used on the cover was just a prop for the shoot and Satriani says he never used it on the recording or otherwise.

New Patron/Patron Upgrades:

  • Fielding Fowler and his extended clan:
    • I was thinking, the made up name tier is all wrong for Spike and his Mom, since those are their actual names! I bumped them up to 3.33 each. Not to be outdone, I am starting the New Nice Price Tier at 6.99. Maybe my mates in the original Nice Price Tier will give in to inflation and come along for the ride! Thanks for the dedication each week!
  • Scott Zerns joins at the $5.00 “Money Lender” Tier
    • Just signed up for the 5.00 money lender tier. You guys always do an outstanding job and look forward to every Monday’s new show. Great listen to and from my job, also while jogging and doing yard work. You and John never disappoint. The knowledge and insight you both bring give me more appreciation for this band I have followed for about 40 yrs now. Always something more to learn from the show.
    • I plan on hopefully launching my own band dedicated podcast in the near future. Just trying to iron out the technical side of it.
    • Thanks again for what you guys do!!

Lead up to the Album:

  • Ozzy left the band after reportedly being frustrated with the experimental direction they were going with the last two albums.
  • Osbourne was involved with early writing for the album before he left.
  • Sharon Arden introduced Dio to Tony Iommi.
  • Initially Dio and Iommi immediately clicked and toyed with the idea of forming a new band.
  • They played briefly with Dio on bass/vocals as Geezer was going through a divorce.
  • Craig Gruber also played with them on bass for a brief time.  Gruber has made many claims over the years including that he co-wrote most of the songs on the album and that they reached a financial settlement.
  • Iommi says in his biography that Gruber recorded all of the bass parts but they were re-recorded by Butler who hadn’t heard them.
  • In 2009 Gruber admitted he only helped write “Die Young.”
  • Bill Ward considered this to be the start of a new band rather than a turning point for Black Sabbath.
  • The album was recorded in Criteria Studios in Miami, Florida.
  • It was Dio who recommended they use Martin Birch who he’s worked with in Rainbow.
  • It was the band’s first outside producer since Rodger Bain who produced “Master of Reality” in 1971.  Iommi had produced the band’s albums since 1971.
  • Looking back at the addition of Dio, Butler says it wasn’t really adding Dio to the band because the band as everyone knew it “Barely existed” as a band during this time.
  • It seems it could have gone either way with Tony doing a solo album with Dio or Dio joining sabbath.

    • From interview with Joe at Black-Sabbath.com
    • “MASQUE was a series of paintings with people in costumes. the SMOKING ANGELS was specifically inspired by a photo of some people backstage at a small town Christmas pageant. The painting was cropped a little on the right for the album cover. You can see the full painting in the ARCHIVE segment of www.curleeart.com.”
    • From interview with RevolverMag.com
    • “They were in a jam,” recalls Curlee. “Black Sabbath were releasing the new album Heaven and Hell. The original cover-art plan was not working out, I received a call to ask if I had anything they might be able to use, since the timing was getting short.” Lynn Curlee sent them a photo of Smoking Angels; Warner Bros. sent a check!
  • Illustration [Liner] – Harry Carmean
    • Only credit – he drew the back cover illustration.

Bustin’ Out The Spreadsheet

Reception and Charts:

  • The album was the band’s highest charting album since “Sabotage” reaching No. 9 in the UK and No. 28 in the US).
  • Dio on the differences between working with Iommi and Blackmore from a 1982 intervew: “The difference really is that Tony is an all-around player. Ritchie is a brilliant, brilliant player. And he always will be. He has very good musical ideas. But to my way of thinking, he is not a member of a band. I’ve always been a band-oriented musician. Tony is a team player. Tony caares about me, he cares about Vinny, he cares about Billy, and we all feel the same way. Ritchie really only cares about himself. I’m trying not to make this a derogatory statement. The man hasn’t said any bad things about me and it’s not in my constitution to use the press to say anything bad about Ritchie. I had a good relationship with him; he’s a fine player and I wish him all the success in the world.
  • Ozzy referred to this lineup as “Black Rainbow.”

Nate Guest Spot on Vintage Rock Pod – This Day Rocks – Deep Purple’s Fireball

Vintage Rock Pod * THIS DAY ROCKS* Fireball

See below for a very quick review of Fireball from Nate as a guest on Vintage Rock Pod!

Today’s topic of conversation is about a sometimes overlooked album from Deep Purple – ‘Fireball’! This 1971 release suffers slightly from being sandwiched between legendary records ‘Deep Purple In Rock’ and ‘Machine Head’ but still packs a punch. With me to share his thoughts on ‘Fireball’ is Nate from Deep Purple Podcast!
