    • 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.

    Welcome Jonatan Hedlin!

    John’s history with Iron Maiden

    Nate’s History with Iron Maiden

    Nate, roaming the halls of Bulmershe College in his “Seventh Son of a Seventh Son” t-shirt (c. 1993.).

    Influences:

    • Bruce Dickinson & Deep Purple: How Ian Gillan Influenced Bruce Dickinson’s Vocals
    • Guesting on The Rock Show With Johnny Walker’s “Rock God” segment aired on the BBC here, Iron Maiden frontman Bruce Dickinson named Deep Purple vocalist Ian Gillan as his personal rock god.
      • You can’t talk about Iron Maiden without first mentioning Deep Purple, a group that Dickinson first heard after accidentally stumbling upon their album In Rock: “I was walking up and down the corridor at boarding school and I heard this racket coming from behind a door,” Dickinson began. “I thought, ‘Oh my god, what is that?!’ So, I knocked on the door and this senior boy opened the door and looked at me with a big sneer on his face. I asked, ‘Who was that?’. He went, ‘Oh, it’s Deep Purple if you must know, ‘Speed King’’ and shut the door. That was that, I was hooked.”
      • Having said all that, I met Ian Gillan. Not only did I meet him, I actually went on tour with him when I was in a band called Samson.”
      • “I’m in a studio,” Dickinson continues. “We’ve done an album in Ian Gillan’s studio. We’ve all been at the pub and had a few pints, in walks my god Ian Gillan and goes, ‘Hey, what a great vocalist. Who’s the singer?’ At that moment, I felt the sudden urge to vomit. I ran out of the room, puked up for about 45 minutes in the toilet when in comes my idol, kicks the door and goes, ‘C’mon, mate, out you come. Let’s get you wiped down with a towel.’ He put me in a taxi and sent me home. I’ve never forgotten that, and he’s never let me forget it, either.”
    • Adrian Smith:
      • Adrian Smith Once Quit Fishing Because of Ritchie Blackmore
      • “When I was about 14 or 15, I was kind of a clueless, your usual type of teenager and I didn’t know what I wanted to do in my life. And I sort of wandered into my older sister’s bedroom to check out her albums, which were normally soul records — THE TEMPTATIONS and [other] Motown [artists]. And then I noticed she had some new records, and one of them was a DEEP PURPLE record called ‘Machine Head’. So I put the album on a little record player, and I just couldn’t believe what I was hearing. That was it, really. It sort of changed my life. I thought, ‘Well, I’d love to be out doing that one day.’ The fishing had kind of tapered off. In those days, I couldn’t imagine my heroes, like Ritchie Blackmore from DEEP PURPLE, and people like that going fishing. So I thought, ‘Well, I’ll give it up and I’ll give all my time to try and make it as a professional musician.’ So that’s what I did.”
    • The song Innocent Excile would ve worth listening to as an example of maiden at the Purplest sound.
    • Paul DiAnno auditioning en with “Lady Double Dealer” (not available to hear but, anyway)
    • Murders in the Rue Morgue and Lost in Hollywood drum resemblance. Clive’s and Nicko’s influence from Cozy and Paicey. Gangland another song example for this.
    • Iron Maiden – Murders in the Rue Morgue *HD*
    • Gangland (2015 – Remaster)
    • Interviews with members from both band must’ve occured, I know there is one with Paice and McBrain about cymbals ;p
    • PAISTE CYMBALS – 2 Legends 1 Sofa – Nicko McBrain (Iron Maiden) & Ian Paice (Deep Purple)

    • In Rock by Deep Purple (1970)
    • Are You Experience by Jimi Hendrix (1967)
    • Aqualung by Jethro Tull (1971)
    • Led Zeppelin IV by Led Zeppelin (1971)

    • Steve Coldwell writes: “Thanks to our February school vacation schedule, I just got around to listening to this episode on Friday while shoveling snow…just in time to encounter my own version of “the Dixie Dregs guy,” at a Dream Theater show in Boston, Friday night. This particular gentleman—who looked like he was solidly in his 70s— doubled down on your Dixie Dregs fan, and actually had TWO catchphrases that he was screaming at the top of his lungs: alternating between “Boston matters,” and the oddly off-brand for Dream Theater, “Git ‘er done!”

      • Mike Kattan – Joining at the Episode $6.66 Tier
        • I don’t have anything clever, but here are some thoughts you might be able to make a bit out of.
        • My first hard rock album was Machine Head, which my older brother gave me when I asked him for something heavier than Grand Funk Railroad, which was my previous step. I went from DP to Sabbath eventually. This was about 47 years ago.
        • I don’t think there any any heavy DP without Ritchie but would love to be proven wrong with an example album (big Ritchie fan)
        • I thought Jon’s scores on Moxy were way low!! Started listening to them.
        • Thanks also for the Dream Theater cover experience. That was awesome.

      Lead up to the Album:

      • Chuck Burgi, a friend of Joe’s, and drummer with Hall and Oates. Colin Hart says Joe had a hand in getting Bobby out of the band and getting Joe to replace him.  Ritchie wasn’t sold on Burgi right away.
      • Bobby says he knew he was going to get kicked out so he quit.
      • Rosenthal says they had another drummer who he doesn’t remember the name of who did all the drum parts in Copenhagen.  Ritchie eventually decided to have Burgi come over and redo all the drum parts.
      • Chris Carroll seems to be the drummer that started sessions in Copenhagen.
      • Rasmussen says they “wasted three or four days” with the first drummer.  Everyone seems unwilling to name the drummer.
      • Joe increased his level of collaboration with Ritchie on the writing process.
      • They went up to Vermont to rehearse then over to Sweet Silence Studios in Copenhagen to record the album.
      • Ritchie insisted on writing outside of the studio for financial purposes. 
      • The album was recorded in five weeks.

      Album Art & Booklet Review

      • Wikipedia says the album art was designed by Hipgnosis and that along with Led Zeppelin’s “Coda” were the last to be designed by Hipgnosis before they shut down in 1983.
      • Discogs credits this album differently.
      • Artwork [Sleeve Design And Concept] – STd (3)
        • Storm Thorgerson Designs – used this acronym to credit his work after Hipgnosis closed for business.  Shortly after this he formed StormStudios.
        • Discogs lists Storm as the designer and not Hipgnosis.
      • Photography By [Cover] – Derek Burnett
        • Only credit is this album and Kansas’s “In The Spirit of Things” featuring none other than current Deep Purple guitarist Steve Morse.
      • The title is an American expression and not a British one supporting the theory that this album was specifically marketed at American audiences.
      • Joe says it came from Clif Cooky Crawford, Ritchie’s guitar tech, who used to say “don’t get all bent out of shape” all the time.
      • The band originally wanted to call the album “Don’t Fuck Around with Love.”  As could be expected the record company wasn’t crazy about this album, hence the title it has.
      • We saw this sort of thing really annoy Ian Gillan a few years later when Blackmore said to Gillan ‘There’s no need to cop an attitude.’ This infuriated Ian Gillan who didn’t appreciate Blackmore’s adopting of American expressions or mannerisms.

      Album Tracks:

      Side One:

      1. Stranded (Blackmore, Turner)
        • Turner says the song was written while looking out the window in Copenhagen and feeling like he was stranded.
      2. Can’t Let You Go (Blackmore, Turner, Rosenthal)
        • Second single released from the album with 
        • Released  “All Night Long” live as a B-side, other versions also contained “Stranded” live as well as “Drinking With The Devil” included in the Spanish single release.
        • Rosenthal wrote the intro. Ritchie told him he was looking for something like Bach’s “Toccata and Fugue.”
        • If you haven’t seen the video, you should definitely check it out. Future bonus episode material for sure.
        • Reached #43 on the UK Singles Chart.
        • Burgi says they couldn’t quite get this one right.  Ritchie got frustrated and left Roger, David, and Chuck and told them to try it as a trio.  They said they got it in the first take and Ritchie liked it and later overdubbed his guitar part.
        • Ritchie says this is the best Joe ever sang.
      3. Fool for the Night (Blackmore, Turner)
        • Turner says this song is autobiographical about being addicted to the rock and roll lifestyle.
      4. Fire Dance (Blackmore, Turner, Glover, Rosenthal)
        • Joe says this song is about dabbling in the occult with Ritchie.
        • JLT says they were into Wicca and Alestair Crowley.  He says he was “literally possessed” to write this song.
        • He also claims they used to do seances with Jimmy Page.
      5. Anybody There (Blackmore)
        • Joe Lynn Turner says this song was titled this way because the first three lines of any seance are “Is Anybody There?”
        • Ritchie says it’s a typo on the sleeve and there should be a question mark after the song title.
        • Ritchie says it’s based on Bach’s “Prelude in C.”

      Side Two:

      1. Desperate Heart (Blackmore, Turner)
        • The LP has “Desperate Heart” at 4:00, whilst cassette and remastered CD have this track at 4:36, repeating the verse after the guitar solo.
      2. Street of Dreams (Blackmore, Turner)
        • Turner calls this song “Stone Cold Part II.”
        • First single released off of the album.  A couple of different versions including “Anybody There” as a B-side, “Power” live as a B-side.
        • There’s a video for this one as well directed by Storm Thurgerson, the cover artist.
        • The video was banned by MTV for a segment that was supposedly hypnotic.
        • Reached number 52 in the UK charts, #60 on the Billboard Hot 100, #2 on US Mainstream Rock.
        • Joe Lynn Turner said that this song was a “big story for me.”  He goes on to say, “It was a spiritual experience that I had. I’m a reincarnationist, and I believe we all lived before, and know people and places before.”
        • JLT says Ritchie was intimidated by some of the lyrics and the melody because he’d done such a great performance.  He says Ritchie “was like, ‘ Fuck, how am I supposed to play a lead? This vocal is so strong.”
        • Ritchie says this song is one of the best commercial songs he’s ever been involved with.
      3. Drinking With The Devil (Blackmore, Turner)
      4. Snowman (Howard Blake, arranged by Blackmore)
        • The instrumental “Snowman” is based upon “Walking in the Air“, a song written by Howard Blake for the 1982 animated film The Snowman based on Raymond Briggs‘ 1978 children’s book of the same name.
        • This song was based upon “Walking in the Air” by Howard Blake. This was from a 1982 animated movie called “The Snowman” based on Raymond Briggs’ 1978 children’s book.
        • Was nominated for a grammy for best rock instrumental performance in 1984.
        • Sting beat it out with his song “Brimstone and Treacle.”
        • Ritchie: “I think Sting won it, because they felt sorry for Sting. This is the story I heard. They felt sorry for him because he didn’t win in the vocal category. So they had to include him in something.”  He goes on to say. “That’s not a slight at Sting, but that’s how the story came back to me.”
      5. Make Your Move (Blackmore, Turner)
        • Similarly, “Make Your Move” is 3:56 on the LP, yet 5:25 on cassette and remastered CD, due to a reprise of a bridge section and a much longer playout. The first US CD edition (Polydor – 815 305-2) uses the LP version.
        • Joe says this is something he and Roger were saying to each other. They were at this point in their life where you have to do something different.  He likens it to the song “Power” from “Straight Between The Eyes.”

      Reception and Review

      • Roger says this was the best sounding record sonically.
      • The album reached #11 in the UK Albums Charts and #34 on the Billboard 200 in the US.
      • Howard Johnson of Kerrang! magazine (No.51 – Sept 22-Oct 5, 1983) praised the album as “possibly Rainbow’s most complete work to date” and called “Desperate Heart” and “Street of Dreams” “two of this year’s finest tunes.”
      • Joe Lynn Turner tells this story of making a 10 foot line of cocaine in the studio and all of this excess.  Roger says he doesn’t recall any of this but says, “Sounds like a good story, though. And who am I to ruin a good story?”
      • They started the tour for this album in England supported by Lita Ford.  Joe and Lita quickly became romantically involved.
      • Ritchie: “I’ve come to realize that playing music that people can enjoy is not a sin. When I left Purple and started Rainbow in 1974, I was committed to making music I viewed as challenging. Regrettably, that style didn’t sell too many records. 
      • In 2006 “Street of Dreams” was recorded by Blackmore’s Night for their album “The Village Lanterne” and is sung by Candice Night.  There’s a special edition version of the album that features the song as a duet with Candice Night singing the track with Joe Lynn Turner.
      • By this point rumors were starting to swirl around about a Deep Purple Mark 2 reunion.
      • Joe Lynn Turner says they were on the verge of something greater and were really picking up traction but broke up right before it happened.
