GILLAN “Double Trouble” /CD/
zoom Zoom image

The fifth full-length album by the legendary British Hard Rock band.
Album was released during the heyday for the New Wave Of British Heavy Metal, when Heavy Metal was seeing a resurgence especially in Gillan's homeland. Many, including Ian Gillan himself, rank "Double Trouble" as the band's pinnacle; their finest moment. On the studio tracks producer Steve Smith manages to capture the raw, heavy feel of the band that was sometimes missing in past albums. The studio album featured two hit singles, “Restless” and “Nightmare”, which were unfortunately only released in Europe.
The album is titled "Double Trouble" because originally this was released as a double LP set with one record being the new studio material and the rest being live material, mostly taken from England's 1981 Reading Festival. The one exception is "If You Believe Me" which was recorded at London's Rainbow Theatre, March 4, 1981.
It is the first album to feature Janick Gers, since Bernie Tormé left the band during the tour of Germany in 1981. In fact Tormé was fired because he did not want to participate in the playback TV performance of "No Laughing in Heaven" at "Top Of The Pops" on 24 June 1981. Janick Gers came in for the rest of the tour on 25 June 1981. Of course, Janick Gers went on to record with Bruce Dickinson and eventually joined Iron Maiden.
Album reached #12 in the UK charts.
In 1989, Virgin Records re-released the remastered version of album in CD format, with the same track listing.
