    Slaves and Masters only has one good song, “Fire In The Basement”. The song is fast , and Blackmore’s guitar playing is full on shred!! Joe Lynn Turners vocals are superlative as well!! This song is so GREAT, that it alone, is better than all the Deep Purple songs that had Steve Morse on guitar on them!

      Increible album!! y pensar que el cantante pudo ser Terry Brock o Jimi Jamison!!!aunque Joe Lynn Turner aqui personalmente hace su mejor trabajo

        I got used to a LP order of tracks and can't accept the CD's one! The great LP, one of my favourites in vinyl times but I can't listen to it from CD because of different order of tracks that ruines otherwise magnificent album! Hoped that a remaster will have the RIGHT order but in vain. Running Wild's Under Jolly Roger CD was hated by group's fans because of the same reasons untill it was rereleased with the LP order of tracks. Why has no-one rereleased this album the same way? It was an atraction of the first CD years to issue albums on CD different to LP: different order of tracks, longer versions, bonus tracks, etc. Though it's not difficult to programm the playing order but still it's irritating thing to do. Also a pity that the next JLT-Purple album was erased, Ritchie Blackmore stated that it was a great one and I believe him!

            Not typical Deep Purple, but neither was Come Taste the Band, and since this Mark version contained more of the classic Mark II than the Tommy Bolin-driven album did, it can be said to be more legitimate. But it has been unfairly been maligned, I believe. Although the sound has more in common with my least favorite version of Rainbow, it is still a good rock album and fun to pop on the player every once in a while. While it can't compare to the best Ian Gillan-led platter, fans of "Radio" Rainbow should enjoy.
