Slightly off-topic, but speaking of GH's bass playing, check out the studio version of Muscle & Blood from Hughes/Thrall. If I would pick one track to highlight his bass playing it would probably be this. Great guitar riff full of swagger to start with, but the bass makes that track. His speciality is the notes he doesn't play, imo. So groovy.

Mk 3 would have sounded very different without Glenn's bass that's for sure.



I love that album, always have. I bought it even before I knew who Glenn was because I saw one of their videos.

I'm just wondering what you lot think about that record.

I've been listening to it for a while, and I'm having a really hard time to like it just because of Glenn Hughes. To me, it sounds like he was heavily on drugs at the time, and his inbetween banter is truly embarresing. And he talks a lot! A LOT!

The band is great as always, but, again, Glenn ruins it for me. Coverdale doesen't sound good at that point either, but at least he had some dignity. Because of Glenn, Coverdale isn't talking much inbetween songs.

I can see why Blackmore left the band. I guess he realized the mistake he and the guys had made when they brought Glenn in. To much funk, and to much drugs!




Listened to for the first time in ages, this is some of the best Purple i’ve ever heard and the sound immense! It struck me that like in 1993, RB was playing with a point to prove. Remember having an awful C90 of this for years in the 80s/90s, so didn’t quite appreciate the performance levels.

The whole band is cooking, but Blackmore’s solos on LDD and Gypsy are among his best, really tearing it up! While I love Made in Europe, somehow the Final concerts release in 1996 didn't quite work for me, not sure why as the performances are strong enough. this single concert is a lot better,

Only got to Smoke so far, so lots still to enjoy!

I prefer the song selection on Made in Europe. I agree with you, GH talks to much.
During this Paris show Paicey's almost ever stable timing is not so proper. He is increasing his tempo at the end of each of the first tunes. Not a big problem, but unusual. It was a special show for all.

Will the entire Saarbrucken show ever be released? I think this is the show where most of "MIE" comes from.
