'A' 200 ?


I love this track, i thought at the time that they would have continued with more of the same on the next album .... like how wrong was i!

Without a doubt ... Jon Lords best bit of tinkering with his Synths in the studio, Blackmore and Paice are awesome.

Only prob with this track is its too short.

Would love have seen Torvil and Dean dancing to this Bolero, what have i said, DEEP PURPLE ON ICE

'Coronarias Redig' was great too. It would have been interesting to hear more like those two tracks.

I'm still not sure if "A200" (in a more embryonic form, I guess) was played live by MkII in 1973, as stated by ]this source ...

It's in my DP top 20. I just love it, it's an amazing closer to the album.

As a bonus, RB does a solo that I often think is his best ever.

When you know ]what "A200" stands for , you can't help thinking it's about getting rid of nasty elements...

I always considered A200 a throwaway track that I skip most of the time. It's the "How do we make this side of the album long enough" track.
