Top Ten Solos Not On Electric Guitargemcloben
The Top Ten
Speaking of non-electric guitar solos, this song is unique because it has 3 solos of this type but the bass solo is the most unusual.
1) the bass solo is really cool, it's the climax of the song and it's long enough to create a melody.
2) there were not many bass solos circa 1970
3) besides the bass solo, there is also a drum intro solo and a keyboard solo (and 2 guitar solos but they don't count here). This is definitely a song of solos and the solos are so holistically connected that they don't sound like patches put here and there.
I have said it many times and will say it again: Deep Purple are one of the most unique and most talented bands ever, and it's so said that their songs are not known (except for Smoke on the Water). - Metal_Treasure
I would say these are fills and not a solo - Metal_Treasure
It's a drum intro solo - Metal_Treasure
Amazing - the song meaning culminates in a 35 sec long drum solo, which sounds like a choir of machine guns.
Randy Black doesn't just play a bunch of notes - he puts meaning in these notes. He's a drummer that deserves more attention. - Metal_Treasure
