E G A E G B-A E G A G E 6x

 During last night's commute I was scrolling through the Rock channels on SiriusXM

 and this song came on.   Obviously, it was way over played back in the day.

Wel, It's been a while since I heard it so I turned it up and sang a long. 

Ah yes, the good ol' days.

Last night I found this version on the youtubes with a great intro by Ritchie Blackmore:

16 October 1993 in Hanns-Martin-Schleyer-Halle in Stuttgart, Germany


  1. Got to see them at the Astoria Finsbury Park in London. I still talk about the electric mandolin solo

  2. Before I looked up the lyrics, I could've sworn I heard them singing about "Slow coastin' Walter...Pirate in disguise." I may need a new radio in my truck...

  5. Back in 1972 Deep Purple briefly held the Guinness Book of World Records title as the world's loudest rock band when they hit 117 dB at London's Rainbow Room and 3 people of the 3000 in attendance passed out !

  6. First album I ever bought was Deep Purple's "Machine Head." I was a freshman in high school.

    Even better, tonight I paused Herbie Hancock's 1964 "Empyrean Isles" that was playing on the big system to listen to you Deep Purple cut on the office system. The system is a Marantz 2240b receiver that was made in 1974. Somehow this is all very fitting.

    Thanks. For an encore I think "Space Trucking" is in order...
