Re: The Mark One Advocation Syndicate:


Hey, if you can stand someone who also is a post-Mk.1 fan, I'm in.
It's so cool !

I especially love "Deep Purple", and the songs Lalena and Why didn't Rosemary (wow, I'd like to hear Blackmore playing blues more often).

Rod Evans really have a beautiful voice (in Lalena, wooow).

Hey, I love the Book too, but I don't have "Shades". I'd like to.

 I'm considering making this a "sticky topic" for this [sign in to see URL] at 9-10 pages, I think there might be a bit too much digression in it. Maybe we can start another thread for sign ups and make that one a "sticky"? What does our Founder + Fearless Leader (B3Burner) think about that?

Mr Ed,

Sorry to get back to you so late on this. I just noticed it now.

I think a new thread is fine if you want to do that.

Re: The Mark One Advocation Syndicate:


A Mark One Advocation Syndicate existing for such a long time, and I haven't yet joined ? Shame on me ...

Yes, I always loved MK I. Unlike other fans, I always considered them as an integral part of the Deep Purple history. They delivered songs like Mandrake Root and Wring That Neck which were maintained by MK II until Machine Head, they did a cover song called Hush which keeps creeping into DP's set list up to this day, and they developed a musical identity which is very interesting to my ears.

There were three strong musical influences which defined MK I's music: Ritchie's attemps to play hard rock (And The Address, Mandrake Root, Wring That Neck, Bird Has Flown), Jon's classical ambitions (Anthem, Blind, April) and Rod's liking for ballads (One More Rainy Day, Shield, various covers). All this was enriched by Ian's adventurous drumming as well as Nicky's driving rock'n'roll bass.

Of course it had its weak points. Ritchie was still developing his soloing skills. Listen, Learn, Read On was played too fast. Rod had difficulties reaching the high notes (listen to the "And I love you baby like a schoolboy likes his pie" line in River Deep Mountain High). And their choice of covers was debatable here and there. So it was nothing more than a natural evolution that this line-up didn't last longer than one and a half year.

But as an episode of that length, it's a part of band history which I admire a lot. I was in Purple heaven when the Inglewood bootleg CD turned up in 1995, and I hope that some more live recordings will surface - some years ago Simon Robinson wrote about a Canadian show from early 1969, I still keep my fingers crossed.

And never forget: It was this band for which Ritchie suggested the Nino Tempo / April Stevens song title "Deep Purple" as a band name. All the incarnations that followed just took over the name, despite musical changes being radical enough that a name change would have been justifiable. There'll always be a place in my Purple heart for the five guys who started it all.
