According to a posting on the Deep Purple Appreciation Society web site, exciting plans are apparently afoot for a 40th anniversary edition of "Shades of Deep Purple", the debut album by the English hard rock band DEEP PURPLE. This follows exploratory studio run-throughs of some of the old tape reels (prior to the "Hush" Jaguar commercial) which proved more than promising.

Commented the Deep Purple Appreciation Society's Simon Robinson: "I was pleased when we got the material for the remastered EMI CD in 2000, as that was a big leap forward from the existing analogue source tape. But, frankly, we were speechless after hearing these 'new' tapes, which really prove just what an incredible sound they had right at the start, and how heavy they were too. [Original album producer] Derek Lawrence deserves a medal for archiving the work in progress like this, especially given the pressure and deadlines he was under to record and mix an album in just a few days."

"Shades of Deep Purple" was released in 1968 on Parlophone in the UK and Tetragrammaton in the United States.

The LP reached position No. 24 on Billboard's Pop Album chart in the U.S.

According to the Deep Purple Appreciation Society, it looks like the wheels are turning again on the DEEP PURPLE "Stormbringer" remaster. The album, which was originally issued in November 1974, will be re-released as a double-CD set, with CD1 featuring the original album remastered plus the new mixes by Glenn Hughes and Pete Mew. CD2 will contain the original quad mixes in 4.1 and stereo. The set is likely to come out in a special edition, which Simon Robinson from the Deep Purple Appreciation Society has been asked to put together. "I'm going for a CD-size hardback book format, with extras including accurate reproductions of the American in-store advertising card and other goodies," Simon says. No firm release date has been confirmed yet.

Former DEEP PURPLE keyboardist Jon Lord has posted the following message on his official web site, JonLord.org:

"First and foremost, thank you all so much for the questions and the very kind and sometimes moving comments you have posted on the website. From people who have seen me play lately, from people who've not seen me for a while and from those who've never seen me at all — they are all gratefully recieved.

"I'm happy that you are enjoying 'Durham Concerto', 'Boom of the Tingling Strings and Disguises'. They, amongst other works, have occupied my time pretty much from the year in which I left the PURPS.

"Although I am still writing like a man possessed, I am now moving towards doing more live work — both with orchestras and also with a 'Jon Lord Band' project which will include more Hammond (+ second keys, guitar, bass, drums, percussion and a sing-ist), some new stuff, and one or two carefully selected songs from the past that I had a small part in writing!

"I hope too that I will soon be able to answer some of your questions specifically — such as 'When are you coming to such-and-such a place?' and so on. I will try to make my comments to the site a more regular thing too.

"In the meantime, stay well and keep the music with you."
