Day 117

Deep Purple- Stormbringer

Deep Purple as a whole has to be up there for worst album covers ever. Who thought that rainbow lightning striking a horse with wings while riding a tornado was a good idea? I don't care what kind of drugs they were on, that's just terrible.

Regardless of the horrible album cover, I do like this record. Very funky record that surprisingly works very well. Unfortunate that there are a few skips on the lp though. Oh well, I can live with it, but I'll be on the lookout for a better copy. I'll listen to this more than once. Good 70's rock n' roll record.

For those that don't know, this is the second record with David Coverdale on vocals and Glenn Hughes on bass. Burn was the first one, I need to find that. This was also the last record with Ritchie Blackmore until the Mk. II reunion. A lot of people say they should have broken up after Blackmore left, but I'm glad they didn't. I like the next record, Come Taste The Band, with Tommy Bolin on guitar. Oops, I guess I just gave away what I'm listening to tomorrow night!

I couldn't find any good concert footage of the song "Stormbringer" so here's just the song. Good stuff.
