AVI ROSENFELD – VERY HEEPY VERY PURPLE IX – X / AVI ROSENFELD & MARCO BUONO – SAILING ISLANDS BY THE SOUND (Independent)

Review by Officer Nice: Well, 3 albums in 1 review. I know that’s not very usual but this lad did send us 3 copies of his newest productions. I have never heard about the man before but a little chat with Stefan and a quick search on the Internet learns this man is heading from Israel, a country I really want to visit one day. I’ve heard it is very beautiful out there and after all the cradle of our existence lies there, so I need to see it. There is something mysterious about it, I don’t need that much more to be exited…

Anyway, I noticed this man had already released several albums. A brand for all of them is that all the front covers look fantastic! I could keep on watching them, actually it’s a pity I only received a poor black and white paper version and no original one. I don’t know who the artist is behind it but he did a hell of a job. I wonder if these albums are released on vinyl too…I would buy them for the cover only! Check it out on the Internet, you’ll agree easily!

Actually there are more reasons to buy this stuff because also musical wise these are good records, certainly if you’re a fan of the old Deep Purple or Rainbow. This man is clearly inspired by the ancient Gods of our beloved music. The compositions, the way every single instrument is played, the entire atmosphere… it all breathes Deep Purple and Rainbow. Avi Rosenfeld doesn’t hide his love for Deep Purple and therefore fans of this band can purchase these albums blindfolded..

Avi Rosenfeld is a very good guitar player and there are good musicians besides him. This isn’t a cover band but a formation that worships Deep Purple and that can be heard easily. Purple from the Seventies, Purple from the Eighties… I liked both era’s and therefore it was an easy listening session, even for 3 records. I’ll leave you with a global rating for the three albums and the advice to check http://www.facebook.com/avirosenfeld

My rating: 80/100 (Good in its own genre, recommended for those hooked on it)
