On another note, Stormbringer is actually now played in the key of D, ie 2 steps below the original key of E. This is unsurprising and sounds ok, Live....I believe it’s possible to use some form of effect these days to raise the pitch of the voice. To be honest WS would sound a lot better if DC did this. The material on Made in Japan sounds almost unrecognisable at times with this down tuned approach.



Nice post you beat me to it was just about to post this. Yes Stormbringer is down a whole step in D- just checked. Will see what the other keys are. If the singing isn't a total joke I might get this after all .

he's got two soloists, maybe his approach is to have both guitars and keyboards solos done on the guitar?

That wouldn't be his best idea, but then again it's another approach to the songs.



Remember Wargasm's cover of Fireball? It has a great guitar take on Lord's organ solo!

I like the idea of having no keyboards in this project, just razor-sharp guitars.



Yes that's quite a good take on the song! emoticon

Well yeah, its just like Led Zep did for the 02 shows and like VH did for DLR since the beginning. Eddie hated tuning down but did it for Roth. Some bands do it to sound heavier, some do it for no other reason than to help the singer.

I think it's an awful solo. Sounds like someone trying out a Wah pedal for the first time in a guitar shop! Some of the guitar fills in the rest of the song sound good, but the solo drags the song down, IMO.



Time for me to eat some "humble pie". Having listened to it several times I have to agree that there are some good musical ideas in the solo. I think the Wah is overused, but apart from that Beach has made a great contribution here. I presume it's him on the guitar fills throughout the rest of the song, which are all excellent.

Oh yeah, great fills too. I like the intervals he puts here and there.

Although I think they should have added a hammer on in the part after the solo and before David comes back in on vocals. That part goes a little long. But other than that, it starts out as a funky solo and then goes back into a solo that sounds more Blackmore-ish.

woahh....total about turn! sure, good you're now getting something out of what Reb's done on the solo parts, i'm still waiting to feel likewise, but will also be happy to acknowledge as/when this is the case!

Re: The Purple Album.....


The following text appears on Amazon and provides a bit more info on the album and the thoughts behind it: I read into this that David wanted to both re-record with Ritchie and tour.

"What many promise, but few can guarantee is what the loud and proud Whitesnake have always delivered and with their 12th studio opus The Purple Album once again their hard core fans are about to be surprised again by the 'Snake. Recorded & mixed by legendary frontman and Whitesnake founder David Coverdale with Co-Producers Michael McIntyre and Snake guitarist Reb Beach and at Hook City Studios in Reno Nevada, 'The Purple Album' draws on the songs from the three Deep Purple Mark 3 and 4 studio albums featuring Coverdale. "Burn", "Stormbringer" and "Come Taste The Band" . All the songs on the new album are presented as a respectful tribute to his former colleagues & pay homage to the band who started him on an amazing musical journey over 40 years ago that continues today. "Even though we're playing songs I recorded with Purple over 40 years ago, it has all the classic Whitesnake elements people who support us have come to expect..." says Coverdale, "I thought it would be cool to go out, as it were, the way I came in to this music business." From the opening track, the incendiary classic 'Burn' through to the sonic insanity of 'Stormbringer' Yorkshire born David Coverdale brings his career full circle from when a 21-year-old singer/songwriter bravely answered a music press ad to become the new lead singer for Deep Purple in 1973. After leaving Deep Purple in 1976 Coverdale formed the original Whitesnake in 1977, and began a journey that has taken him from the early heavy blues rock of the late '70s with albums like 'Trouble', 'Lovehunter 'Ready And Willing' and 'Come An' Get It through to the explosive hard rock of the revamped 'Snake sound with the multi-platinum 'Slide It In' & 1987's self-titled mega-million-selling smash-hit album. 'Whitesnake'. "People have been asking me for many years to revisit Purple songs…but I always felt like I should be writing new, fresh Whitesnake songs for the fans." "In 2012 I was told by a representative of the old Purple management that keyboard maestro Jon Lord, who had worked with me in Whitesnake, too, had been diagnosed in with cancer and that Jon's wish on his recovery would be that we put together a Purple reunion of sorts. I agreed to be there for him. As we all know, sadly he didn't recover. After Jon passed away, I felt it necessary to reach out to Ritchie Blackmore to express the grief at Jon's loss and to hopefully bury any unpleasant hatchets we'd been throwing at other for decades. It was during our reconnect that we discussed the possibility of some kind of a Purple reunion or a 'Blackmore/Coverdale' project. During the time we were talking, I started listening to our old albums and began working on ideas & new approaches to suggest, rearranging some of our original works." Unfortunately, our ideas on the reunion aspect didn't quite gel, so I respectfully withdrew from further discussions, though I am happy to say we did bury old animosities and we have thankfully stayed in touch. It was Coverdale's wife, Cindy who suggested that he take his ideas & make a new Whitesnake studio album celebrating his legacy from his time with Deep Purple. "And that's how it all happened. I discussed the idea with my musicians & our record company & everyone was very positive. So it was all systems go for 'The Purple Album'. Coverdale and the band picked their favourite Purple songs from Mark 3 and 4 and set to work at Whitesnake's new recording studio, Hook City in Reno, Nevada. "It was a shared vision," Coverdale says "Every member of the band came to the sessions fully loaded with ideas & talent & helped make this a memorable project for me." "There was absolutely no intention to compete, or compare with the original recordings. We just wanted to play these songs the best we could and this is how we wanted to play them," says Coverdale. And so Whitesnake prepares to set sail with "The Purple Album" loaded with priceless treasures from the three Deep Purple studio albums Coverdale helped write & produce over 40 years ago."
