I still remember the excitement I felt in 1984 when I heard the classic mkII line-up of Deep Purple were working again.  I was a big fan of the band, especially during the Machine Head period, so naturally I wanted to hear what they were doing more than 10 years later.  I wasn't disappointed!  The Perfect Strangers album still sounds great after all this time, as we'll hear on today's Vinyl Vault.  C'mon by for the rarely played title track, around 5:20pm.  Out of town?  Listen live on-line.
