a good farewell

Magic goes on in the road opened by Double Trouble studio album: very good production and songs more melodic than Gillan's earliest.
This band took always something new in its music and here are a great version of Stevie Wonder's Living for the city, a dark fast track as Demon driver -with a beautiful coda- and mild single as Long gone who "inspired" the two years latter huge Van Halen hit Jump.
Several bonus with a beautiful b-side as Fiji, covers of Smokestack lightning and Helter skelter and also three tracks from the South Africa 1988 Ian Gillan solo single composed by Bernie Marsden, even if the b-side John is better.
In Magic, Ian Gillan sings great as ever and it's hard to believe that this group disbanded just two months after this release: such a shame, because Gillan was a great band with nice musicians.
The best Deep Purple split group, even better than great Rainbow.

This was the band Gillan's final album. Gillan went on to join Black Sabbath and later, took part in the reformation of Deep Purple.
Whilst Bluesy Blue Sea is considered to be the 'classic' track here, in my opinion the highlight is the excellent cover of Stevie Wonder's Living for the City.
The album is not as good as the previous Gillan albums, but still well worth of checking out.
