Deep Purple MKIII – Today’s Vinyl Vault
1974. Exit: Ian Gillan and Roger Glover. Enter: David Coverdale and Glen Hughes. Born: Deep Purple mark III, a system fans came up with to designate the different line-ups. Mark II, with Gillan and Glover, was the most successful with Machine Head in 1972. Coverdale's version led the band in a more bluesy direction while keeping the emphasis on volume. They made two albums, one of which we're into today with Might Just Take Your Life, a hit from the Burn album. Remember it? Come by and see around 5:20pm. Down in Florida? Listen live on-line.
