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

Deep Purpleís Stormbringer: full reissue details

EMI Records have confirmed the release of special anniversary editions of Deep Purpleís 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 doesnít 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 Blackmoreís 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.

1. Stormbringer
