This from Geoff Barton, "Editor at Large" for Classic Rock magazine

…Phew! Just taking a breather from writing a major Deep Purple Buyers Guide: a grand total of 21 studio and live releases, beginning with 1968's Shades Of… and finishing off with 2005's Rapture Of The Deep.
The results will be published in a special hardback edition of Classic Rock (more about this in a future newsletter), celebrating the release of the Purps' brand new album NOW What?!
Initial Buyers Guide findings: I'd forgotten what a fabulous record Fireball is and, against my better judgment, I'm really enjoying Slaves And Masters, featuring Joe Lynn Turner on vocals. (Even if it does sound like Bad Company playing Survivor's back catalogue!)

earMusic has uploaded a clip about the photo shooting for the new album in Berlin during the tour 2012. Pics are from ace photographer Jim Rakete, who is also the former manager of Nena ("99 Red Balloons").

You can also see how the few remainings of "The Wall" look nowadays.

Heidi, I miss you on this video. I guess you would have loved to be in the position of the redhead...

Last weekend there were some more samples of the album on Argentina (?) music channel Vorterix. They played "Simple song, Weirdistan and Hell to pay (long version with long guitar solo and organ solo)". The Highway Star posted a link, but unfortunately the songs can't be heard now anymore, because they are removed. There are some reviews from fans who heard these songs and they are very enthousiastic. This must be the best Deep Purple material since Perfect Strangers. I can hardly believe it will be better thand House of Blue Light and Slaves and Masters (two very under rates albums).
But for sure this will be the best studio album with Steve Morse:
Fantastic

Its matter of taste, but it will definately be better than House Of Blue Light and Slaves and Masters, because ALL Steve Morse albums are much better than those two albums which were just "not good" in case of HOBL (worst album with IG on vocals) and "not worthy of name Deep Purple"... in fact it would be below average Rainbow album.

I heard the clips from argentinian radio, they played just clips from the 1st three songs (plus album version of Hell To Pay which ROCKS and Don´s mad keyboard solo in that song is highlight of the track!) and I would dare to say, that the last album with 3 so promising great songs was Machine Head with Highway Star / Maybe I´m A Leo and Pictures Of Home. No kidding! The clips sounded very very progressive, and Out Of Hand is going to be really groovy classic! Something like Purple´s Follow The Tears (from Heaven and Hell The Devil You Know album)...

Geoff Barton likes it!

Just in from Classic Rock!

Quote:
April 4, 2013

Welcome

For the past few days I've been immersed in all things Deep Purple. I've penned a (hopefully definitive) DP Buyers Guide that spans 18 studio albums and three live ones. Then just yesterday I finished a review of the band's new full-length NOW What?!, their first since 2005's somewhat low-key Rapture Of The Deep.
Quickfire verdict: it's a corker! You know you’re on to a winner as soon as opener A Simple Song kicks in with a flurry of gentle, almost distracted notes by guitarist Steve Morse and supplementary cymbal-sweeps from Ian Paice. There’s a crackle of electricity in the air – and it ain’t just comin' from overheated speakers. The production, by the legendary Bob Ezrin, is open and spacious; it’s like a living, breathing thing. You know what? The Purps have never sounded so good.
The full review will be published in the next issue of Classic Rock, on sale on April 24; NOW What?! will be available to buy shortly after.
Trust me – it's going to be worth the wait.

Geoff Barton, Editor At Large

Purple was at the breakfast show "Morgenmagazin" today on German TV. Right now I'm watching another show where they will perform live.

This is the video link

You'll be pleased to know they have only printed 1000 copies so this could well rise in value

But for those who havent ordered you can win a signed copy here

Finally the significant album is there is 2013. And significant it is. The best Purple album in a very long time and the best album with Steve Morse so far. Dedicated to our dear JON, the lord of Hammond. Gillan's best vocal performance since the seventies (?), Steve plays more bluesy and Don Airey is at his best. Roger steady as ever and very loud in the mix and Ian is still the best rock drummer in the world.
Lot's of charts succes all over the world and they deserve it.
And of course Bob Ezrin did an excellent job. The album is still growing and growing. NOW WHAT?!: simply the best. I am very happy with this.
I like the artwork, simple but very strong

now what? - whatever as a new chapter !
This is an DP album the fans were waiting a long time for, not only big grooves, big riffs, big screams but a round piece of music.
Great songwriting, hard stuff lyrics, much of the Machine Head spirit, virtuously and free flying through different keys and styles, flashing up some Eagles... Doors.., much melodies and much more stories have been told.
The hammond organ played by Don Airey is bony dry, noisy and creaky like an old castle's door, very dominant, good so.
Ian Gillan sings as good like in the seventies, deeper of course but every note intense. Steve Morse' guitarplaying has got some really beautiful mystic moments, like flying colours, ha ha.
The whole production sounds very directly, warm, human, showing the qualities of playing together musicians, you hear no machines.
The great "into the face" sound reminds me of "Made In Japan" sometimes,
the organ part in "Hell To Pay" for example.
Bob Ezrin did a masterful job, you can hear how important the overall view and vision of a good producer is.
And last but not least i'd say the album has got a lot of Jon Lords music.
This band is in balance, and they are surprising again after all this time.

According to Roger Glover they should get to the studio for writing sessions during this summer and then during winter 14 or early 15 - back in the studio in Nashville for recording with Bob Ezrin again

Very good news Stormy. Can we expect the Purple guys for some concerts this fall or winter in our region???? would be nice, after Gelredome Arnhem 2011, Heineken Music Hall Amsterdam in 2012 en IJsselhal Zwolle in 2013, I am
hoping for another fall/winter show the year. Hope they will make records and will tour for years and years to come.

Willem, I'm afraid we have been spoiled a bit with the tours over the last years. I don't think there will be a tour in the fall this year. Needless to say that I do wish to see them again.

Anyway, I hope that the European dates for CaliBreed will be announced fairly soon
