“Time For Bedlam” is an up-tempo classic Deep Purple song and the first glimpse of the upcoming album “inFinite” that follows the successful „NOW What?!“. The limited edition EP that features non-album songs and unreleased recordings will hit the shops on February 3rd. The B-side “Paradise Bar” is a brand new recording that resulted from the album rehearsals and recordings.“Hip Boots's” final version will be found on the upcoming album, the EP includes a special instrumental rehearsal version that was recorded by no other than Ian Paice himself. To round off the 4-track single, “NOW What?!'s” “Uncommon Man” can be found as instrumental version, highlighting the beautiful melody and intricate arrangements. “Time For Bedlam”, as well as the album, has once again been produced by Bob Ezrin who has formed with the five members of Deep Purple an explosive songwriting team.
Excellent addition to any prog-folk music collection.
A Maid in Bedlam is credited to the John Renbourn Group, not to John Renbourn alone, and that is an important distinction, since this is not another album of Renbourn's acoustic guitar stylings. It really is the work of a group, consisting of Renbourn on guitar and vocals, his Pentangle partner Jacqui McShee on vocals, Tony Roberts on vocals and wind instruments, Sue Draheim on vocals and fiddle, and Keshav Sathe on tabla and finger cymbals.
Essential: a masterpiece of rock music.
