High Octane Deep Purple MK III – Today’s Vinyl Vault

David Coverdale’s quiet and shy beginnings with Deep Purple were nothing of the sort.  He was hired in 1973 to replace the classic throat of Ian Gillan, no easy task I would guess, but pulled it off and then some.  The band forged on nearly eclipsing the Machine Head days in popularity.  Burn and Stormbringer, both from 1974 were huge successes but eventually caused the mark 3 line-up’s disintegration.  Coverdale was involved in the mark 4 line-up but his best work with Purple was behind him.  We’ll have some of it today from Stormbringer.  So “bring” yourself around 5:20pm, either on the radio or on-line.
