Hit And Miss

For a greatest hits recording somehow the word great does not come up. Good or OK sounds more like it. There are some great songs on this compilation but there are some ho hum efforts as well.

Man On The Silver Mountain definitely stands as great. Love the riffs and guitar embelleshments from start to finish. The next track Catch The Rainbow is nice sort of mellow tune with lots of atmosphere. Even the third Dio track Starstruck is semi-memorable. From there on tracks 4-7 are pretty forgettable. Since You've Been Gone is a catchy tune but then come a couple of so so songs. Power, Jealous Lover, Stone Cold, Street of Dreams, and Can't Let You Go are other strong tracks.

Therefore that makes 9 songs out of 16 as strong and seven as forgettable. Thats a little better than .500 which is not what I look for in a greatest hits package. As good as a gutiar player Ritchie Blackmore is, his best work is with Deep Purple.
