The first in the series of three new Deep Purple remastered discs from Friday Music, ”Stormbringer” the hugely successful Deep Purple album, marks its first release to a North American audience, after being out of print for almost two decades. Recorded in 1974 as a follow-up to their multi- platinum release ”Burn”, Ritchie Blackmore, David Coverdale, Glenn Hughes, Ian Paice and Jon Lord forged ahead with a harder sound and continued their assault on audiences worldwide with ”Stormbringer.” With an apocalyptic entrance, the title track ” Stormbringer” kicks the album into a full gear. Blackmore, known for creating some of the finest and most familiar riffs in music history, continues his legendary roll with this metal anthem. Coverdale notches up another career defining song as well, which has followed him through his amazing run with Deep Purple and his own successful arena band Whitesnake. Eight more incredible performances continue to thrill the listener including the Glenn Hughes melodic classic ”Holy Man” and the rocking ”Lady Double Dealer”, which features the solid back beat of Ian Paice and Jon Lord, which became one of the more lasting tracks in their long list of fan favorites. The bluesy ballad ”Soldier Of Fortune” showcases the strength of David Coverdale’s writing and vocal ability, and is a fine close out to this sorely missed album. Newly remastered from the impeccable Warner Music vaults by Joe Reagoso (Procol Harum, David Lee Roth, Johnny Winter, Canned Heat, packaged with new liner notes, with the cd packaged in a very cool limited edition purple tray, welcome back this much heralded album for the first time on cd in almost two decades.
