  • Jellybean
  • Hi Nate, thanks for the message. I’ll go by “Jellybean”, my nickname when I discovered the band.
  • That would have been 1971, when I was 11. Was visiting the kids next door, a couple years older than me, they were playing this wild music – Purples eponymous third album. Hooked! That organ – you didn’t hear that sort of thing on the single radio station in our small rural town. I was learning organ at the time and wondered why I couldn’t make such sounds!  
  • They dubbed me a copy and ai played it so much I wrecked it. So went and bought a real copy. Saw a bunch of other Purple cassettes there and a few weeks later went and got their new release “Burn”. So good. Still my favourite Purple album. 
  • I remember telling another neighbour “Deep Purple are releasing a new album today – Stormbringer”. Off I go to the music shop again. I didn’t have a lot of cash, so I bought very few cassettes in those days. It would have taken months to save up for one.
  • Sometime after that, I was listening to music with my cousin, he says what do you think of this song… wow, oh wow. Didn’t know the song but at all but knew it was Ritchie playing. Was told it was something called Black Night. So I went from Mark I to Mark Iii &IV and not heard Mark II at all. Back to the music store, pick up a cassette called “24 carat purple”. A Mark II compilation. Floored all over again. 
  • Eventually I get a bit of a job and a record player, start buying the back catalog on vinyl, the older stuff. Went in reverse order – Who Do You Think We Are, then Machine, Fireball, In Rock, thinking these guys are getting better!
  • Favourite band then and still now over 40 years later. And Burn is still the best. 
  • I got to see the band only once, their 1984 comeback tour. Dec 4th in Melbourne. So loud, so amazing. 
  • Then I lost track of the band, moving around the country for work and life stuff. Thanks to the podcast which I’ve been listening to this year, I’ve listened and learned about the extended family. Thanks heaps to you Nate and John for the shop. Glad to be a supporter. 
  • Cheers, Jellybean.

The Cicadas Are Here!

  • https://www.chicagotribune.com/2024/05/17/2024-cicada-emergence-chicago-illinois/
  • They’re loud, but they’re harmless. And some people even like to eat them.
  • Cicadas are beginning to emerge from the ground around Chicagoland and Illinois. Two broods will converge on the state in a historic emergence. They belong to Brood XIX, four species that appear every 13 years in the Southeast, and Brood XIII, three species that appear every 17 years in northern Illinois.
  • It will be the first time in 221 years that these two specific broods come above ground at the same time and in such proximity. The last time this happened was in 1803 when Thomas Jefferson was president, and Illinois had yet to become a state.

Reception and Charts:

  • https://www.glennhughes.com/discography.html
    • “Recorded in Tokyo in the Summer Of 1994. A brilliant concert, my band played incredibly, the audience was fantastic. I felt my Creator present while singing Still In Love With You on this live recording. It was one of those nights that was like a dream. The crowd gave me tremendous energy. My fans are my songs, they are my lifeblood. Turn this one up really loud!”
  • Message from Glenn Hughes:
  • Here’s the most relevant part of the latest message from Glenn, from 21. December 1994:
  • To all Deep Purple Fans
  • I would like to thank all of you, who purchased the Mark III and Mark IV albums which I performed on.
  • I am currently writing and in production for my next studio album to be released in the early summer of 95. My live album (currently on import) Burning in Japan [sic] will be out in the New Year. Six Purple songs are performed here to great satisfactory performances.
  • You must remember that Purple asked me to join to add a new dimension to the sound, which I did. I have the greatest respect for Ian and Roger. But David and myself are different writers, performers and singers. I wish all the Purple family the very best, and to you all Merry Xmas and a Happy New Year!
  • Glenn Hughes
