Nr. 665 – DEEP PURPLE: Turning To Crime (2021) with Ian Gillan
Deep Purple´s brand new album “Turning To Crime” (release date 26 th of November is quite unique in the band´s history. The 22nd album of the band contains only cover songs, which in a way is a crime 😉. Therefore the album title.
I had the great pleasure to talk to Ian Gillan about the new album, and together with the legendary vocalist I´ll present the album, which was produced again by Bob Ezrin.
The choice of songs is a very interesting one. You´ll find tracks on it originally released amongst others by Cream, Led Zeppelin, Fleetwood Mac, Lonnie Donegan, Bob Seger and Mitch Ryder. And they have been - as Ian Gillan put it – purpelized.
In my opinion the new album is a very enjoyable experience and highly recommendable.
So we let it rock and rock on!
