    • I’s all gonna be ok
    • Just plug my band called ‘Das Funk Haus’ too.     My first memory of Deep Purple is ‘Smoke on the Water’ on an 8 track player in a 71 chevy nova.  3 years old and standing on the bench seat  between aunt and uncle,.  Same uncle took me and little bro to our first concert….DP perfect strangers  at meriwether post in columbia md….I think black foot opened for them.

Album Tracks:

Mark 1 performed on the Sounds Like Tony Brandon Show session which recorded at BBC’s studio 4 Maida Vale.

  1. “The Painter” (BBC Sounds Like Tony Brandon Show Session – 24 June 1969)
    • Version 1
    • At this point “The Painter” is showing up as reworking of what we heard in the last episode titled “Hey Bop A Re Bop” with rewritten lyrics.
  2. “Laléna” (BBC Sounds Like Tony Brandon Show Session – 24 June 1969)
    • They also played “I’m So Glad” during the episode but that recording is missing.

At this point the band had already signed Gillan and Glover but Simper and Evans had not been given notice yet when they appeared on BBC’s Chris Grant’s Tasty Pop Sundae show at Aeolian Hall, Studio 2.
