Purple album box arrives

Posted: June 28, 2015 in Classic Rock, Cool stuff, Deep Purple Family


When I left work this morning for my annual holiday, fate had it that my copy of the limited edition Whitesnake package had arrived, so I went to the store and picked it up. This is the “Deluxe Collector´s Edition Box Set” of “The Purple Album” and I think this is one of the finest releases under the Whitesnake banner in years. What you get is the CD/DVD version (with a couple of extra tracks in “Lady Luck” and “Comin´Home”), the double LP version, a poster, a limited edition lithograph and a sticker. And the box itself looks great, it´s really cool.

I´ve lived with this record for a while now, as I´m sure that you´ve (or most visitors to this blog), and I think that it serves the original purpose of David Coverdale well. It´s a nice homage to his days in Deep Purple 40 years ago, and I for one love it. The North American tour has been going on now for a few weeks and there´s plenty of videos to see on YouTube. Looks like the band is on fire to me. And Glenn Hughes joined the lads on stage for a few songs on the West Coast which was lovely – first time that they sang together in public since 1976.

There is much to celebrate and this wonderful box just nails it.

    Saw Whitesnake in Stockholm last week. Good concert ,but only 6 purple songs in the set. I hade hoped for more Purple songs, like Stormbringer and Lady Double Dealer which they have done earlier on the tour.

    Actually, Glenn and David did Burn in public, back in year 2000. I found it on Youtube a month ago. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_-rzsnmig6Q

    Thank you for a great blog.

    • Thank you for your feedback and your kind words. I think Whitesnake is doing a great version of “The Gypsy”. I think “Love Child” would´ve fitted them well too live, not the least lyrically. MIKE
