Deepest Purple DVD progress

We’ve got further details on the bonus DVD that will be included with the Deepest Purple anniversary reissue. It is still work in progress, so things may and probably will change.


  1. Hush (Playboy After Dark, 1968)
  2. Speed King (Vicky Leandros show, German TV, 1970)
  3. Child In Time (new clip)
  4. Black Night (classic 1970 video clip)
  5. Fireball (German TV performance on Disco ZDF, 1971)
  6. Strange Kind Of Woman (Top Of The Pops, BBC, 1971)
  7. Demon’s Eye (Music Today, RBB Berlin)
  8. Highway Star (Beat Club, German TV, 1971)
  9. Never Before (classic 1970s video clip)
  10. Smoke On The Water (Hofstra University, 1973)
  11. Woman From Tokyo (new clip)
  12. Made in Japan / Space Truckin’ (new clip from MiJ footage)
  13. Burn (London 1974)
  14. Stormbringer (new clip)
  15. You Keep On Movin’ (new clip)

Each clip will be presented by Jon Lord discussing the song’s development, in the similar vein with the outtakes that we presented yesterday.

Items marked as a “new clip” are newly developed videos using archival documentary material from the period. For example, we were able to preview Child in Time, which in itself is a very much work in progress. Child in Time preview for Deepest Purple bonus DVD; screenshots courtesy of Thompson MusicThe clip is based around the studio album soundtrack with bits of Doing Their Thing footage synchronized to it in appropriate places. The rest of video shows period footage with the apparent idea of conveying the sense of uneasiness and apprehension of growing up in the shadow of the Mutually Assured Destruction, which is after all the theme of the song’s lyrics.

    Well it looks like they’re gonna drip feed us the MiJ footage. It’s a proven fool proof method of getting as many people as possible to cough up for material they already have….

    I’m a mug though – I’ll have to have it for the MiJ footage alone. They don’t say though how long the Space Truckin’ clip is….

    Perhaps it is funny to know MUG in Dutch means mosquito?

    Do you prefer to be a parasite or a stupid wanna have it all fan?

    #6, purplepriest1965, Ibelieve we’re on the same wavelength, believe it or not. I don’t fancy parasites, and I am polar opposite of a “wanna have it all fan”.

    Citronella on the skin tonight while outside. Mosquitos flying and landing rampant on the largest oegan of the human body. Bellies full of a potpourri of plasma. Such Bela Legosi fanatics!!!!

    Tracy Heyder (aka Zero the Hero) says:

    I love watching Mosquitoes drink and fill up on my plasma which is laden with Kentucky Whiskey….One part Whiskey, one part blood. They sit, drink and stumble away, usually unable to fly. Then when they fall off to the floor, I take a needle and do to him, what he did to me. Poke a hole in him and watch My Blood drain from his now lifeless body.
    Too much time on my hands…..

    George, wake up……
    Its almost 2011!!!!

    It might give someone a very good album by the Purps.

    Whats your guess?

    To the “Child in Time” prieview:

    scene 00:02:11 and 00:04:36 are from the “Black Night” Clip Hamburg 1970
    scene 00:06:30 are from Montreux 1971
    other scenes from Granada TV 1970

    Think, this clip is composed of several concerts
