Family tree importance


Most true Purple collectors will collect all things Purple AND related. Yet with such an expansive family tree and with some seen as the Black Sheep of that tree even the hardest core fans tend to have branches to the Tree that they choose to either ignore all together or only explore to a minimal degree.

My question to you is to list the importance ( or rank ) of each family tree branch.

Here's mine

All Rainbow
All other things Blackmore
All Gillan
All Satriani
Both Captain Beyond
Trapeze
From this point on I get more picky and only get particular items
Bolin solo and James Gang also Energy and Cobham
Some Paice items including both Gary Moore at the top of them
Jon Lord items
Some Whitesnake
Some Glenn Hughes but not much
Some Turner but not much
Some Warhorse but no other Simper
No Don Airey that is not Rainbow
Not now or ever, Yes that means never ever as in even IF pigs fly Will I ever get any Morse.

How do you imagine. Three best albums each, or something in that way?

Re: Family tree importance


I am basically asking which parts of the family tree you personally find most worth completing.

I listed what I have completed first in the order of importance then the things that I may not have yet completed but want to and then made my way through the ones that are one album here or there and finally to th Never ever under any circumstances will I ever ever that is absolutely not get any Morse solo.

Okay:

Gillan(all)
Rainbow(and Blackmore, although the 60s stuff is really only for die-hards)
Whitensnake(all)
Hughes(as much as possible not all the session stuff)
Trapeze(there´s not much but all is great)
Jon Lord(the orchestral works are must!)
As much Bolin as possible
Two Warhorse
Two Captain Beyond
Some Dixie Dregs
Some SMB
Some Turner
Airey only if you´re intersted in the bands he played with(some greats there!)
Satch is not necessary, but a nice addtion.

Re: Family tree importance


In 1990 I made a list with all the Purple, Rainbow, Whitesnake and Gillan members and the albums they appeared on. Since then I've been working to get the albums on this list and I'm not finished yet. Maybe I'll add the names of the 90s Rainbow and Whitesnake incarnations and Satriani and Morse when I have completed this first list. My bank account says no and I'm not sure if I really need the Morse solo stuff...

All Blackmore's Night and Blackmore sessions compilations
All Hughes and Trapeze (collection coming along nicely)
Both Bolin studio albums, but intend to move on to live stuff and James Gang
All Gillan (collection pretty empty at mo though)
Morse (again not started)
Some Satriani (not sure where to start)
Jon Lord items (I want Windows)
No Simper on my list
No Don Airey solo stuff really
Absolutely NO JLT

I would start with Flying in a Blue Dream for Satriani. Time Machine, Surfing with the Alien and Engines of Creation are pretty good too.

Re: Family tree importance


I have all Blackmore, except Straight Between The Eyes (which is damned hard to find on LP these days emoticon ) and some BN.

I had more or less all Gillan, but simply abandoned most of the records cos I didn't care about them. Kept some goodies, though. Today I'm afraid I regret I didn't keep some more of them.

Today I'm collecting Tommy Bolin stuff with growing fascination

I look very much forward to get more Glenn Hughes, as what I've heard is truly amazing.

I enjoy Paice/Ashton/Lord very much. There's not much to collect, though.

I'm sure there are some Whitesnake I will enjoy too, but I'm not in any hurry. Nothing from what I've heard has really impressed me so far.

Re: Family tree importance


Most important to me is all things Gillan and all things Blackmore tied.
This is because Blackmores early work is pretty extensive and painstaking,therefore very important to my collection,not to mention I happen to personally love best this period of music in his career,plus E6 is another soft spot.
Next up would be Jon Lord,early stuff is important right up to Santa Barbera Machine Head,so this is mainly because of his early output.
The rest follow behind these,with Glover,Coverdale,Hughes,Simper,Evans,
Satriani,Bolin,Airey and Turner,in that order.
Mind you,Glover and Airey can be a very painstaking task as far as outside things they have put out,Glovers productions and Airey's session work,are two areas I doubt I will ever complete,especially Airey.
I collect as my main hobby and have been doing so since 1978 and won't stop till the day I die.
(at this point I'll be a free man) emoticon

Re: Family tree importance


Well, I think that I have at least everything were Glover plays on(except Dan McCafferty´s solo album)

And I have those he produced I´m interested in...but not too much is left(don´t have much Nazareth).

What albums Glover produced do you miss?
