Vincent-Price-sleeve-catDetails of the Deep Purple Vincent Price single release have been confirmed. There is a 7″ vinyl edition in a pic sleeve (sadly NOT featuring the dancing nun!) and a 5″ CD. Both formats include the non album cut First Sign Of Madness. The CD also has the promo video for the single which we’ve discussed before. It can be pre-ordered at DTB Online store.

Whitesnake – full details of their next live album Made In Britain are now with us. It’s a 2CD set, twenty five tracks. CD1 is from the UK tour in 2011, the second disc from rest of world shows. It includes versions of Soldier Of Fortune, Burn and Stormbringer.  More details on the Coverdale page. It’s available in July, and can be pre-ordered at DTB Online store.

Lastly I can’t be the only DTB person who was a fan of The Doors and Ray Manzarek’s very individual keyboard work; if so you might be interested in a detailed interview with Ray Manzarek which our friend Jon Kirkman did four years ago. He has dusted the tapes off and is airing it as a special tribute to Ray, who died a few days ago. It’s on Classic Rock Radio on Saturday afternoon at 4pm UK time. You can listen later at

    Thanks for the pointer Simon. I was (and remain) a huge fan of the Doors. Ray and Jon absolutely my favourite keyboard players – both taken within a year of each other. Both very much in mind lately thanks to Don Airey’s work on the new album. All the best. Vincent.

    So who is the actress in the Vincent Price Video? She looks really familiar!

      You never know what the Chinese are putting in your water supply Mark, so don’t bet against it!

    No Simon you are not the only one to appreciate The Doors and Ray here! Indeed The Doors introduced me to r & r and remained my favourite band for many years. RIP Ray
