    Which brings us to Come Taste the Band. Hmm... Another 5 or so years? :huh:

  • Another dpas update:

  • I know that these DP reissues are not known for being done quickly...the understatement of the century...but I do believe that this one will be worth every second of the wait.

    And Glenn's active participation makes it that much sweeter! :thumbup:

    Hang on ladies and will be here before you know it!

  • An update from dpas:


    EMI say they have put Stormbringer back a couple of weeks to February 2009 due to scheduling pressure.

    Hopefully just in time for Valentine's Day :heart: :D

  • Here's a slight update from Classic Rock, with a bit more detail than what was posted here a few weeks ago :)

    Deep Purple’s Stormbringer: full reissue details

    EMI Records have confirmed the release of special anniversary editions of Deep Purple’s classic album Stormbringer on CD, with an accompanying DVD, and vinyl LPs. The Stormbringer reissues are due to hit the stores on February 23, 2009.

    Stormbringer features the MK III Deep Purple line-up of David Coverdale (vocals), Glenn Hughes (vocals and bass), Ritchie Blackmore (guitar), Ian Paice (drums) and Jon Lord (keyboards).

    Recorded in Musicland Studios, Munich and released in 1974, Stormbringer is the Deep Purple album that often doesn’t sound like a Deep Purple album. Although considered proponents of the hard rock genre, as hinted at on previous album, Burn, Stormbringer saw the band create a more funk and soul-influenced sound.

    Owing to the direction of Stormbringer, it was to be Blackmore’s last studio album with the MK III line-up. He left to form Rainbow, making way for the MK IV version of Deep Purple, with American Tommy Bolin on guitar.

    CD Tracklisting:

    1. Stormbringer
    2. Love Don’t Mean a Thing

    13. Hold On (Glenn Hughes remix)
    14. High Ball Shooter (instrumental) 4.30 (from Listen Learn Read On Box Set)

    The DVD features an original Quadraphonic mix album as 5.1 DTS 96/24 and the original album Quadrophonic mix stereo 48/24 with on screen images.

  • I listened to the clips on my lap top and they sound great! The remix of "Hold On" was something I looked forward to as I have always loved that almost sounds like Glenn found an alternate take on his vocal if you listen to it....little bits of harmony vocals tucked away that are seeing the light of day.

    Just a few more weeks....:thumbup: :cool:

  • Almost there! I can't wait to hear this thing! I'm so glad that Glenn (and Roger Glover, in the case of the earlier Purple remasters) has taken the time to acknowledge his past, and made the effort to preserve it.

    What's next? Do we dare hope for a remaster of Come Taste the Band? After all, it would be the only remaining album of the halcyon years of Deep Purple. Imagine if Glenn was involved again...and Jon Lord...maybe Coverdale and even Johnnie Bolin. What an amazing finish to the remaster series, with arguably the best of the MK III/MK IV bunch!
