Apple Podcasts Reviews:
- I love mags (from the UK)
- 5 Stars!
- Great fun podcast on Deep Purple
- I found out about this excellent podcast by accident and I absolutely love it. It’s a great fun listen. I’ve only played a few episodes so have loads to catch up! The House of Blue Light review was interesting. I saw Purple on this tour at Wembley London UK. On that eve Blackmore refused to do an encore! So Lord and Glover played lead. It was definitely an interesting version of Smoke on the water! Having seen Gillan in mind blowing vocal form (the band) live in 81, it was noticeable Ian had lost some of his range/power by 87/88. Overall he was/is still great. Keep up the great work, thank you! Ps The latest “Accidentally on Purpose” episode was excellent, I had forgotten how good this album was. Like you l appreciate it more now. I bought it when it came out and wasn’t sure I liked it back then 🙂
Big thanks to Brendan Ashbrook who designed our logo!
