Purple’s label have issued a couple of nice quick fire question and answer videos culled from recent interviews which make fun viewing ahead of the album’s final release on FRIDAY.
Dave Browne has been keeping us up to speed on these and others and says it seems that Bob Ezrin is responsible for “Roadhouse Blues”, after suggesting that they close the album with an old cover version, like last time (um, depends on which of the four versions of the album you were sold Bob!). Ian Paice suggested Roadhouse as he’d performed it recently with a tribute act. Frustratingly, for those who haven’t taken to it, Roger says that they had two more really good original song ideas for the album which were set aside but still may be returned to.
Although we posted a couple of album previews below a few days back, I have opened a proper review page so feel free to send us your thoughts over the next weeks or two!
