    Live At Montreux 1996

    Deep Purple need no introduction as one of the all-time great British rock bands. Their association with Montreux goes back to the early seventies, when their attempt to record their album Machine Head at the Montreux Casino was thwarted when it promptly burnt down, forcing them to make the album in the rooms and corridors of the Grand Hotel instead. The story was, of course, immortalized in their classic song Smoke On The Water which is the climax of this 1996 concert from the Montreux festival.

    Home of Smoke on the Water and Highway Star, Machine Head blends proto-metal density with epic arrangements, resulting in a record that's far more grandiose than the sum of its parts. -Jon Wiederhorn

    Private Eyes (Speakers Corner)

    In the course of his sadly short life, Tommy Bolin was at least granted eight productive years during which he was able to contribute to what was probably the most innovative era of rock'n'roll. His outstanding skill on the guitar brought him legendary status during his lifetime when he replaced the - in many ways - unique Ritchie Blackmore as frontman with Deep Purple. Jon Lord, keyboarder with the group, once described Bolin as a »beautiful lost soul«, and as such he allows one a very private glimpse into his musical perspective in his second and final album. This is certainly dualistic: in numbers such as Post Toastee and Shake The Devil Bolin sings about drug problems in a dry rocker style that is enhanced by his superb guitar playing.


    But this hard rocker shows just how stylistically assured he is in more gentle realms, as in the highly melodic ballad Sweet Burgundy, which makes for enjoyable listening. Bolin's subtle fingering creates a natural and electrifying Gypsy Soul and his Hello, Again is narrated softly to the sound of old-fashioned strings and winds. The relaxed tone of the recording is quite typical of the notions of sound at that time and reminds one yet again that the great voices of rock are now heard in heaven.


    Not only jazz fans will be saying a big thank you that this recording - made in the early days of stereophony - is available once again on virgin vinyl with superb sound.


    Musicians:


    • Tommy Bolin (guitar, keyboards, vocals, piano)
    • Mark Stein (keyboards, vocals)
    • Norma Jean Bell (percussion, vocals, saxophone)
    • Reggie McBride (bass, vocals)
    • Bobby Berge (percussion, drums)
    • Bobbye Hall (percussion)
    • Carmine Appice (drums)


    Recording: June 1976 at Cherokee Recording Studios, Los Angeles, CA and Trident Studios, London by Tom La Tondre and Steve Taylor

    Production: Dennis MacKay & Tommy Bolin


    About Speakers Corner


    At the beginning of the 90s, in the early days of audiophile vinyl re-releases, the situation was fairly straightforward. Companies such as DCC, Mobile Fidelity, Classic Records and, of course, Speakers Corner all maintained a mutual, unwritten ethical code: we would only use analogue tapes to manufacture records.



    During the course of the present vinyl hype, many others have jumped on the bandwagon in the hope of securing a corner of the market. Very often they are not so ethical and use every imaginable source to master from: CDs, LPs, digital files, MP3s - or employed existant tools from the 80s and 90s for manufacturing.



    A digital delay is gladly used when cutting a lacquer disc because tape machines with an analogue delay have become quite rare and are therefore expensive. When cutting the lacquer, the audio signal is delayed by one LP revolution against the signal, which controls the cutter head, and for this a digital delay is very often employed. Of course, the resultant sound signal is completely digital and thus only as good as this delay.



    We should like to emphasise that Speakers Corner Records on principle only uses the original master tape as the basis for the entirely analogue cutting of lacquer discs. In addition, the pressing tool is newly manufactured as a matter of principle. We have one digital recording in our catalogue (Alan Parsons / Eye In The Sky"), but even in this particular case we used the analogue tapes for cutting.



    We only employ existing tools for manufacturing if an improved result is not forthcoming, e.g. the title Elvis Is Back, which was mastered by Steve Hoffman and Kevin Gray, or several titles from our Philips Classics series, which in any case Willem Makkee cut from the original masters at the Emil Berliner Studios in the 90s. It goes without saying that we only used the mother and that new tools were made for our production.



    To put it in a nutshell: we can ensure you that our releases are free from any kind of digital effects - excluding the exception above - and that the lacquer discs are newly cut.

    Perfect Strangers

    Featuring Dead-Quiet Surfaces

    This Wax Cathedral LP is Pressed at RTI, America's Best Record Plant!


    Long before reunions became big-money pursuits, the key members of Deep Purple put aside differences that caused them to split in 1973 and, bowing to public demand, reformed for their first album in 11 years and a subsequent blockbuster tour. While the record's title cleverly acknowledges the long time the musicians had spent apart, everything about the LP confirms the inimitable blend of creative chemistry, crafty songwriting, and trademark skills shared by these five players.


    All the hallmark traits from Deep Purple's golden era (1970-1973) are on display throughout this platinum comeback affair, which has aged much better than most mid-80s efforts in terms of sound, performance, and content. At times mystical,
    aggressive, and dramatic, Perfect Strangers leaves a lasting impression courtesy of Ian Gillan's leather-lunged vocal range, Roger Glover's self-assured bass lines, Ian Paice's titanium-tough drumming, and the trade-off soloing between the wizardlike,
    vibrato-emboldened guitar playing of Ritchie Blackmore and voodoo-casting organ spells of Jon Lord.


    Compositions such as the hit single "Knocking at Your Back Door," hook-laden title track, and racing "A Gypsy's Kiss" could be deemed products of a supergroup, but calling them so shortchanges the artistry, as the posturing asides and attention-getting episodes common to such projects aren't here. Perfect Strangers is hard, heavy purity, the last album Deep Purple crafted of its kind-and one that stands right up to the ensemble's classic Fireball and Machine Head.
