House of blue light out takes


As far as I'm aware nothing aside from the 10 album tracks has ever been released.

I think Cooky Crawford said there was a demo of the unwritten law which was great and they then re-recorded it and knocked the life out of it.

Apparently the 1998 song "Jack Ruby' was written around 1987.

When the album came out, I remember reading that, once they recorded the album, they weren't happy with some of the tracks and rerecorded them. If so, it would be great if the original tracks were still around.

It would certainly be nice if there were some alternative versions. Some really excellent tunes that were brought down by lousy production. emoticon

Re: House of blue light out takes


Released? No. Leaked? Yes.

Back about the time the album was coming out I read an article in a US rock magazine that an early version of the album featuring early versions of songs leaking to radio stations. The band's management threatened legal action to anyone playing it. I have searched for this copy for decades. I was beginning to believe maybe the story was false. A few years ago I asked Nick Blagona if it was in fact true. He confirmed it was. So maybe there was some Purple fan who worked at a station at the time and made a copy and still has it without really realizing what it was or that it was different. We may never know.

I think it's safe to say that Purple, and principally the management, have been very poor custodians of their post re-union material.

That 37 years after the reunion there are no retrospective releases of any of the albums is a disgrace.

Mind you, they were no better at the pre break up stuff either. Thank god for Simon Robinson.
