    A big thank you for this trilogy. We don’t get to see the band captured live in the studio environment that often. Unfortunately, I have succumbed to temptation and can’t stop viewing the Out of Hand clip. It’s a beauty.

    Cheers
    John.

    At least Ian Paice mentions the older days. It seems to be that Ezrin is being hailed as a saviour, & that he may be, judging on the past few decades of some of Purples production. Martin Birch used to get it right didn’t he. Ezrin is possibly reminding the lads of how it used to be & also how it should be produced.
    A good producer is an extra member of the band in a way. He should be able to see the bigger picture & also ‘know’ what is going down with each member of the band. Making it happen, stepping back from it when he knows he has to, getting back in there when he should be in there! And in the older days, maybe separating certain members of some bands, from physical altercations or even stopping them from bumping up their individual instruments recorded levels, on the mixing board. Or was that the engineers extra requirement?
    But that doesn’t happen these days, surely not…………!

    Likewise, I hadn’t intended to hear any more of the new album before it comes out but they had tacked “Out of Hand” onto the France24 interview. I figured the channel would use “All the Time in the World” again. It is hard not to go back and take another listen to the longer clip!

    First of all, THIS is Deep Purple. Of the released teasers, this is the one that generates the most interest–from the heavy rhythmic qualities of the bottom end and vocals to the harmonic Hammond setting. VERY, very nice!

    Second, musical resolution came up with the idea that some sort of finality needs to end a phrase. This is ironic given that in the clip, some of the chord changes do NOT reflect this kind of resolution! Deep Purple is in fact kind of famous for these odd phrasings (especially in some of Blackmore’s latter-day solos).

    Third, Roger Glover is looking suspiciously more and more like my father-in-law…

    Good to see a “Push” for this new release. These guys deserve more media attention. This album should be a “Big Deal.” I just heard the Rolling Mummies are going to tour for a handful of shows and everyone is going ape turds….what new is coming out of their camp?
    I like this 90 sec clip of the band and the jam. Sounds a bit Led Zep to me but with the Purple Keyboards to make it happen. I am excited about this new album. @2 I have been mistaken for Yannie once or twice…..O’well.

    Center clip falls under the “leak factor?!” Not an officially approved(sourced) online item. 🙂

    Throw all speculation to the wind, nobody will know what hits them.
