Never was a Deep Purple fan, of course, I only heard what was overplayed on the radio.  This was pretty enjoyable.  Thanks RP.

apparently not...

‘Lazy’ is pure blues-boogie, dominated by organ effects. The placement is simple and emulates a live performance in focus. Organ opens centre, then is placed right, and guitar sits left, yet then the guitar moves to centre for a solo, then the organ re-takes the centre for another solo. When they play together they’re panned guitar (L) and organ (R.)

But then, Garth stole it from Bach (Tocatta and Fugue in D minor), so who's the real thief (and do we really care)?
Possibly my fave Purple tune.

I was born too late to enjoy many of the "classic" rock stars as they came out, and while I haven't yet delved into the Deep Purple catalog, I was very impressed by their RocknRoll HoF induction speeches and performance.  Not that I really care about the RnR HoF typically, although I was happy to see SMB and NWA inducted that year; the highlight for me was Ice Cube's speech about how Rap, while not a traditional form of music, does have a lot of the same "question authority" mentality as regular Rock stars, and at least on that count, NWA did push the music industry in ways never done before. 

I'm not sure what my point was here, maybe knowing I had a 7+ min track to be lazy while listening to got me off track.  I've rated this sucker at a 9....and to all of you who were around in 1972 and blazing the Js and cracking the tabs on some brewskis and hauling ass in your hot rods....here's to you for making it to 2017!  Long Live RP!!

Crappy beers AND crappy weed, from what I recall. And then the Israelis had to invade and occupy southern Lebanon....  there went the supply of Lebanese hashish.... sigh.

If it's not nostalgia voting, it's purists voting on the notes instead of the tune.

This was the favorite band of all the cool kids back in high school. It took me another 30 years to appreciate the band as I had a view that anything the cool kids liked wasn’t for me.

 Yee gods but I was awkward squad as a teenager!
