Gettin’ Tighter – The Story of MKIV, Deep Purple film trailer – due out in early 2011
“Set for release in early 2011, this film trailer is an early glimpse of the BLURAY/DVD that documents Deep Purple’s turbulent last year before the band split in 1976.
Exclusive new interviews with Glenn Hughes and founder member Jon Lord that open the lid on the problems that beset the band as they toured around the world: Death, drugs and devastation, which led to their ultimate demise.
Archive footage from the tour includes interviews with Tommy Bolin, David Coverdale and Ian Paice, while rare and previously unreleased concert footage includes performances of Purple classics ‘Smoke On The Water‘, ‘Burn‘ and ‘Highway Star‘.
Live versions of ‘Love Child‘ and ‘You Keep On Moving‘ from the MKIV line-up’s one and only album ‘Come Taste The Band‘ also feature as part of the previously unreleased film ‘Deep Purple Rises In Japan‘ – included in full, within this DVD.”
Glenn has been busy over the Holiday Season, in a Malibu, CA. studio with music producer, Kevin Shirley, working on a remix of the classic Deep Purple MK. IV album, “Come Taste The Band“.
Still a work in progress, songs that have received the treatment so far include, ‘You Keep On Moving‘, ‘Gettin’ Tighter‘, ‘Dealer‘ and ‘I Need Love‘.
More updates to follow as work progresses – stay tuned!
