The Purple Album: Special Gold Edition (2LP)
Pre-Order, released on: 10/13/2023
In 1973, it was announced that Deep Purple - at the time, one of the biggest rock bands in the world - had a new vocalist, a young unknown singer from the north of England called David Coverdale. David wrote and recorded three studio albums with Deep Purple, all of them classics; BURN, STORMBRINGER & COME TASTE THE BAND. The fiftieth anniversary of this momentous event is now celebrated with the Special Gold Edition of The PURPLE Album.
Cherry-picking the best tracks from Deep Purple’s Mark 3 and Mark 4 line-ups, all newly remixed and remastered for 2023, Whitesnake’s twelfth studio album features Reb Beach on guitar and Michael Devin on bass, joined by Joel Hoekstra on his first Whitesnake album, plus drummer Tommy Aldridge reappearing on a Whitesnake studio album for the first time since 1989’s SLIP OF THE TONGUE.
