Deep Purple (1968-1976) Apr 24, 2019
David Coverdale - A Life In Vision https://www.wymeruk.co.uk/webshop/collector-s-items/david-coverdale-a-life-in-vision Since joining Deep Purple in 1973, David Coverdale has enjoyed a hugely successful career. Having been plucked from semi-professional obscurity by Deep Purple, within months he was cavorting around the globe with one of the biggest rock bands in the world and fronting Purple on its 1974 US tour which included performing in front of one of the biggest audiences ever for a one day concert at the California Jam in front of hundreds of thousands. After three albums the band finally succumbed to the internal frictions and called it a day in 1976. After initially launching himself with two solo albums, Coverdale set about rebuilding his career with his own band Whitesnake. By the early eighties sell out UK tours and hit singles proved that Coverdale was capable of achieving success with his own band and later that decade Whitesnake hit the heights in America, that he had experienced with Deep Purple, with its multi-million selling, eponymous 1987 album. This new publication is a coffee table style book that celebrates his life in music. Beautifully designed and packaged, A Life In Vision documents key moments of David Coverdale’s long and illustrious career as one of rock’s finest singers with photos from Deep Purple through to the present day Whitesnake, along with stories that chart his career. Housed in a bespoke, custom-made, block foil, buckram presentation box it also includes a set of prints, ideal for framing and is strictly limited to 500 worldwide. Customers who pre-order by 31st May can have their names printed in the book on a dedicated fan page. https://www.wymeruk.co.uk/webshop/collector-s-items/david-coverdale-a-life-in-vision

Deep Purple (1968-1976) Apr 22, 2019
This week in April 68 at London’s Trident Studios The band recorded demos of Joe South's "Hush" and The Beatles' "Help", the latter a dramatic, new, slow arrangement. No distinct initial recording of "Hush" seems to have surfaced over the ensuing years other than the version included on the debut album and single. "Help" was used as the backing track to a mimed TV appearance whilst on tour, shortly afterwards in Denmark. Unfortunately, no acetate seems to survive of this demo. However, the video of "Hush" still exists and is the earliest known filmed recording (black and white) of the group.

16th April 1971 Purple hit the road in Europe in search of the venue to make their next album , which was to become ‘Machine head’. First stop was 2 nights in Montreux working with Claude Nobs…… The show started at 9pm. A report in Billboard at the beginning of February, from MIDEM in Cannes, said that Claude Nobs had announced the 1971 Montreux Jazz Festival line-up for the nine days from 9th to 20th June, with the first weekend, "devoted to blues and pop, featuring Muddy Waters, Chuck Berry, Bo Diddley and Deep Purple." Purple did not play the 1971 Jazz Festival. But they did rock Montreux Casino Lido Le Sablier those 2 nights, having a little fun before launching into the brilliant ‘Speed King’.
Deep Purple (1968-1976) Apr 15, 2019
15th April 1974 Deep Purple return from America after their triumphant Burn tour. "When we saw David it was like looking at an uncut diamond. We thought 'he's good, now how can we make it shine'. He needed a cutter and the cutter was experience. The David we took to America is a quarter of the David we brought back." Ian Paice (April 1974)
Deep Purple (1968-1976) Apr 13, 2019
Today in 1970 Monday, 13.04.70 Abbey Road studios, Studio 3 (UK) Deep Purple Mark 2 made their eighth and final album session, recording "Bloodsucker", the last track to be completed for the "Deep Purple In Rock" LP, on 8-track. The New Musical Express reported that Deep Purple had been commissioned to write and record the entire score for a new - though unnamed - French film and would be devoting all of June to it. The same report mentions an eight-week US tour, starting in July, and a half-hour special to be filmed for Grampian TV, likely to be networked. The report closed by saying: "The group is now in the process of completing work on its fifth album - titled "Deep Purple In Rock", it consists entirely of original material in the hard-rock idiom."
Deep Purple (1968-1976) Apr 13, 2019
Following the California Jam on April 6th, Deep Purple Mark 3 continued straight on with a series of brilliant shows. 'Deep Purple finally made it to Tempe Big Surf, Arizona, with the aid of one charter airplane, four limos and one of those stretch-wagons. Between 10,000 and 12,000 persons turned out for Big Surf's first show of the year, creating one super traffic jam along Hayden Road and raising a dust cloud which probably twisted up the pollution counters on the Valley's east side. When Deep Purple did get on stage, (around 10:15 p.m.) an unnecessary 15-minute delay took place when the group's equipment manager finally agreed that the electrical system he demanded would not function properly, Then, during the show, when someone was trying to plug one wire where it shouldn't have gone, the entire sound system went out, causing the crowd to get somewhat unruly. However, Deep Purple's David Coverdale, speaking from a hastily set up public address system, got things in order, the electrical system was put back together in about 15 minutes and the band played until nearly 12:30 a.m. Running that late, the show, which was scheduled to end at 11 p.m., caused both Tempe City Hall and Big Surf to get more than a few noise complaints." Hardy Price/The Arizona Republic

This week in March 1976 Tommy Bolin jammed with Jeff Beck. In Europe, touring with the Ian Gillan Band, Ian Gillan predicted: "Purple will get together again without any doubt with Roger Glover, Jon Lord, Ian Paice, Ritchie Blackmore and myself. We'll do a tour and perhaps an album but before that happens we must prove to the crowds that we aren't losers and that we can succeed without our old group." Ian Gillan
