        • Joining at the $5.99 “Nice Price” Tier
        • Thank you for a great podcast, just signed up as a patreon! I was listening to John Norum’s (from the band Europe) solo album Total Control from 1987 the other day and discovered something interesting that I don’t know if you’re aware of. Listen to the track Too Many Hearts ”written by” John Norum and Marcel Jacob. I believe they forgot to give someone writing credits 😏🤷🏻‍♂️ … I know the original is Donovan but Deep Purple is a huge influence for the band Europe and I have been a fan of both band since the mid 80’s but haven’t noticed this before.

      Apple Podcasts Reviews:

      • Karl Hellberg – Sweden
      • 5 Stars!
      • Interesting and entertaining
      • Very interesting and entertaining about the classic and constantly innovative band Deep Purple and their sprawling family tree. Highly recommended to all music geeks like me!

      Deep Dive Podcast Network:

      Lead up to the Album:

      • Ian Paice started having an interest in drums at the age of 14. On his 15th birthday he was given his first drum kit by his father.
      • After becoming proficient he started getting his first paid gigs working with his father for £3 a night.
      • Soon after that Paice joined his first rock group, Georgie and The Rave Ons playing in the Oxford area.
      • In mid-1965 the band changed their name to The Shindigs.  From deep-purple.net:
        • “They comprised Johnny Bosher on bass, Brian Nelson (no-one can remember what he did!), Ian and Stuart Forrest on lead and rhythm guitars, plus George (Georgie, the band’s namesake) Adams on vocals.”
      • Rod Evans began in a band called The Horizons based in Slough. From deep-purple.net:
        • “ . . . that included among its ranks Lenny Hawkes, later Chip Hawkes of The Tremeloes, on bass guitar.”
      • The band traveled around playing Hamburg and made very little in pay.  Mick Angus says they’d eat at cafes then run out to skip the bills because they didn’t have the money to pay.
      • At this time Rod Evans was doing modeling on the side to make some extra money.
      • The Horizons never recorded anything but toured around doing covers.  After some 1965 tours they broke up.  Their drummer wasn’t able to play in Hamburg for not being old enough so they had John Kerrison fill in who would later go on to be the drummer in Episode Six.
      • M.I. Five began in 1965 when Rod Evans joined a band called The Jumping Jimmy Band.
      • At some point, unclear when, this band changed its name to M.I. Five.
      • Paice’s band The Shindigs ended up playing gigs in support of M.I. Five fronted by Rod Evans.
      • Mick Angus says of Rod: “He used to be a big Cliff Bennett fan. He modelled his style on Bennet and Allan Clark of The Mollies.”
      • M.I. Five’s drummer quit and they began looking for a replacement and found one in Ian Paice.
      • Paice thought M.I. Five was a more professional band so he left The Shindigs to join them.
      • It was at this point that M.I. Five turned professional.
      • Paice moved in with Chris Banham’s family.

      MI Five / The Maze • The Complete Recordings [1966-1967] ℗ 2019

      Band Lineup:

      • Rod Evans – vocals
      • Chris Banham – organ
      • Eric ‘Jack’ Keene – bass
      • Roger Lewis – guitar
      • Ian Paice – drums
      • In 1966 the band cut their first single “You’ll Never Stop Me Loving You. which came out in September on Parolophone and was recorded on a single track machine.
      • In October or November of 1966 they changed their name to The Maze.  There was an American band with the same name that are unrelated.
      • They they worked on their second single “Hello Stranger” which was recorded for Robert Stigwood’s label Reaction.
      • This was recorded in December of 1966.
      • After this single release The Maze started playing more German gigs and eventually ended up in Italy as a live backing for a musical of the Arcnold Wesker play “Chips with Everything.” This was performed at The Piccolo Teatro in Milan, Italy.
      • They were hidden away from the audience and Paice said the band never saw the audience once.
      • They went into the studio and recorded an extremely rare Italian only single while they were there. This was intended to be a promotion for the stage production.  The two tracks were written by the play’s producers and they aired on local television.

        • Tim “Southern Cross” Johnson
      • The band then headed to France to record a very rare French EP live in the studio.
      • Paice: “On the boat trip over I met this guy called Ritchie Blackmore who was on his way to Hamburg”, says Ian Paice. “I’d heard about him, what a great guitar player he was supposed to be, and we had a talk but that was all… never thought anything about it but after the job in Milan, The Maze got a three week booking at the Star Club in Hamburg and we met again.” 
      • Blackmore caught Paice live and offered him a drumming gig but Paice had to turn it down because The Maze were making money at this point.
      • The Maze’s last single was released on December 6, 1967.  It was the ballad “Cateri Cateri.”
      • After this the band wasn’t seeing much success from its singles.
      • Rod Evans was the first to leave.  He heard about a singing gig from Mick Angus advertised in Melody Maker and he replied to it.
      • When he got the job Ritchie asked Ian what he was going to do when The Maze broke up.  Ian said he went to the rehearsal when their original drummer, Bobby Woodman, wasn’t around and it was agreed that he’d join the band as well.
      • Ian Paice says: “It was pure chance really. If Mick hadn’t told Rod, and Rod hadn’t got the job I’d never have known about the gig.”

      Track 11 credited to Written-By – Barry Mann, Larry Kolber.

      1. Give It Up
        • Give It Up – Video on Youtube
        • Joe Satriani: “This song starts with the sound of my two Marshall half staks, cranked up at Hyde Street’s famous Studio C, where years later I would record ‘Surfing With The Alien.’ ‘Give It Up’ is a perfect example of what we thought at the time was the perfect blend of rock, punk, and new wave.”
      2. Everybody’s Girl
      3. B-Side Girl
      4. I Need A Lot Of Love
      5. Can’t Take It Anymore
      6. So Used Up
        • So Used Up – Video on Youtube
        • Joe Satriani: “One of the more unusual and progressive Squares songs, with lyrics that are a bit darker than our usual upbeat message. I still find the guitar arrangement unique and intriguing, and it’s one of my favorites to play.”
      7. You Can Light The Way
        • You Can Light The Way – Video on Youtube
        • Joe Satriani: “This is a great example of the band wanting to stretch and write more meaningful songs. I love John Cuniberti’s production. The backwards reverb on the acoustic guitar is awesome.”
      8. Tonight
      9. Never Let It Get You Down
        • Never Let It Get You Down – Video on Youtube
        • Joe Satriani: “Great lyrics from Neil Sheehan on this track. It’s got a positive message that still rings true. Can you hear my big nod to Mott the Hoople and ‘All The Young Dudes” on that last solo?”
      10. Follow That Heart
      11. I Love How You Love Me

        • Hi Nathan, John, and all the podcast listeners out there. I’m Michael Bagford, and I have been binging on this show for the last couple of months. Currently, I’m up to episode #46. I discovered this show after another podcast I listen to, Rock Solid, who did an episode on Deep Purple recently. It reignited a passion to listen to the band again. I saw this podcast and was happy to know that you covered all the many bands and artists that are all part of the Purple Family Tree. I’m so happy that there are detailed episodes on the Captain Beyond discography! Anyway, keep up the great work, and I’m enjoying the podcast a lot so far.

          • I had a car accident a few days ago when skid the car of the road and rolled down a slope into a tree and totaled it completely. I got a severe concussion and fractured a vertibra. When I got to the hospital they found some bleedings in my brain and later today, unrelated, a shadow on the images of the brain, so I’m in for more x-ray.
          • Anyhoooo…
          • During all this time while I was under surveillance, I listened back to 40 or so episodes of your pod and it kept me in a good spirit.

        Postcards From The Edge . . . OF CONNECTICUT!

        • Greetings from Ireland for St. Patrick’s Day
        • Parade Magazine from March 13, 2022 featuring 1972 and the storeis behind the year’s most unforgettable songs!

        Deep Dive Podcast Network:

        Lead up to the Album:

        • This recording is approximately two weeks before the final show the band would play which lead to the breakup.  For 8 years there would be no (official, anyway) Deep Purple.
        • Coverdale met with management after Blackmore’s departure and suggested they change their name.  His ideas: Good Company, Purple, The Deeps.
        • The show we are about to hear was originally broadcast on the King Biscuit Flower Hour, the American radio show.  It appeared in numerous forms over the years and explains why the audio quality is so good.
        • The King Biscuit Flower Hour was a weekly show which had also featured pefromahnces by Black Sabbath, Genesis, Jhon Lenon, The Who, The Stones, Elton John, etc.
        • Fans of the show called it “The Biscuit.”  It had debuted in February of 1973 and was named after a radio show from the 1920s which was sponsored by the King Buiscuit Flour Co.
        • The runners of the show recorded things a little differently.  A lot of other live radio shows would just take the mix off the sound board.  The King Biscuit Flower Hour multitrakced the cecordeing and let the artists take the tapes to mix any way they’d like.
        • They even used to have Quadrophonic recordings as they were sponsored by Pioneer who was trying to make that the standard int he industry.
        • The bootleg surfaced in America in 1977.  The bootleg became highly sought after due to its audio quality and the fine performance turned in by the band.  It soon became a legendary release.
        • In 1994 Deep Purple’s management acquired the tapes and put them out the following year as an official release.
        • Many people familiar with the many bootlegs feel this was one of the best shows on the US tour. This is quite possibly Mark 4 in their finest form.

        Album Art & Booklet Review

        • First version – bootleg in the 70s

        • Photography used by Fin Costello in most releases.
        • And what about the name? “On the Wings of a Russian Foxbat.”  Simon Robinson writes:
          • So go on then uncle simon [sic], why ‘On The Wings Of A Russian Foxbat’? Well, when that bootleg first came out, the Cold War was still raging. The U.S. military had just got wind of a new Rooskie MIG jet fighter which was said to knock the socks off anything they currently flew at the time. One day a Russian pilot defected, flying into a Japanese airport in one of the planes – codenamed “Foxbat.” ‘Of course you can have it back” came the cry, just as soon as we measure every damn nut and bolt on it! Well, that’s roughly the story. It was nearly twenty years ago, so don’t quote me.

        1. Burn
        2. Lady Luck
        3. Gettin’ Tighter

        Reception and Charts:

        • They would only play four more shows on their US tour (San Bernadino, CA, Tempe, AZ [listed as ‘Tempe, CA’ in the liner notes’], Salt Lake City, UT, and Denver, CO) before a brief UK tour of five shows ending with the show in Liverpool which would be their last.
        • The original plan was to leave them time off to work on various solo projects after the US tour but that didn’t happen.
        • Official releases featured additional tracks from a partially recorded show in Springfield, Massachusetts a month earlier on January 26, 1976.
        • Coverdale: “
        • Lord:” What you had here was an astonishingly good bass player, even stoned; one of the world’s great rock drummers; and a Hammon next to the name of Mr. Hammond. I know what I was doing, I was feeling very strong with my abilities at that time. Just those three – it couldn’t have been bad. But then you get Coverdale, who was really finding himself by this time. And Tommy, playing smashing stuff.  It’s not surprising that it sounds good. The only thing that held it back was that it was called Deep Purple. If it had been a new band . . . my God, it would’ve set the world on fire.”
