Many consider the vintage "Mk2” Deep Purple line-up of Ritchie Blackmore on guitar, lead singer Ian Gillan, bassist Roger Glover on bass, the late, great Jon Lord on keyboards and the drumming of Ian Paice, to be the near definitive version of this classic British rock institution.

It was this line-up that got back together – for a third and last time – to tour and record for their 25th Anniversary in 1993.

Released in July 1993, "The Battle Rages On” features some classic, ballsy hard rock, including the single ‘Anya’.

Despite playing what many consider to be some of their best ever shows in mainland Europe, especially during a lengthy 13 date German tour, Blackmore dropped the bombshell midway through the European leg that these would his last concerts with the band, making this a unique document of this remarkable band.

Fortunately, two shows (in Stuttgart and Birmingham) were recorded, released in 1994 as ‘Come Hell Or High Water”, which makes up the second disc of this release. Capturing many Purple favourites across its nine tracks, including ‘Highway Star’, ‘Black Night’ and ‘Perfect Strangers, as well as two songs from the then latest "The Battle Rages On”, making this a singular memento from these legendary rockers. It should come as no surprise that the set is capped by the band’s most enduring hit, ‘Smoke On The Water’.

This 20th Anniversary reissue includes an extensive 3,500 word liner note detailing the events surrounding these recordings, and packaged in a deluxe digi-pak.

Slaves And Masters
Deep Purple have a long and colourful career that goes back to 1968, 45 years ago. Originally released in 1990, "Slaves And Masters” represents an interesting and unique period in the band’s eventful history.
In 1984 the legendary "Mark 2” line-up of Ian Gillan, Ritchie Blackmore, Roger Glover, Jon Lord and Ian Paice reformed for the first time since 1973 for the world conquering "Perfect Strangers” album, followed in 1987 by "The House Of Blue Light”. But in 1989 there was the shock announcement that Gillan had been replaced by Blackmore and Glover’s former Rainbow band mate and singer, Joe Lynn Turner.
The result was their first album for Sony Music’s RCA label, "Slaves And Masters”, a strong but soulful, melodic hard rock record, though somewhat misunderstood at the time, stands proudly alongside Deep Purple and Ritchie Blackmore’s other recorded output.
The 16 page booklet features a 3,500 word essay telling the story of the album, and features many rare images and memorabilia, with initial pressings in a strictly limited edition digipak.
Also included are three bonus tracks; the single edits for ‘King Of Dreams’ and ‘Love Conquers All’, plus the non-album b-side ‘Slow Down Sister’.

Russian Roulette
•    The 7th studio album by German heavy metal heroes Accept, "Russian Roulette” was originally released in 1986. Recorded at famed Dierks Studios in Germany, the album was produced by the band themselves.

•    The last Accept LP to feature Udo Dirkschneider, until his return in 1993, the album finds Accept returning to darker tones and a heavier sound to that of the more commercially orientated previous record, "Metal Heart”. The artwork and themes of the record reflects an era when the cold war still at its height, and the fall of the Berlin wall still more than three years away.

•    This remastered version features 3 live bonus tracks recorded on their 1985 Japanese tour; ‘Burning’, ‘Head Over Heels’ and ‘Neon Nights’. Also available from HNE Recordings by Accept are the 2CD "Balls To The Wall” with a bonus live CD of "Staying A Life - Live In Japan” and "Metal Heart” backed with the bonus mini-album "Kaizuko-Ban”.

•    This version features new liner notes from Classic Rock and Metal Hammer’s Malcolm Dome, based on recent interviews with original members Wolf Hoffmann and Stefan Kaufmann.

•    This CD is released 21st April and will not be shipped prior to this date.

Purpendicular: Expanded Edition
•    After a more than tumultuous quarter of a century making records, "Purpendicular”, no less than the 15th studio record by Deep Purple, is the start of a period of relative stability in the Purple camp.

•    Following the departure of founder member Ritchie Blackmore during the 1993 tour to support "The Battle Rages On”, the band would eventually find a
more permanent and less temperamental axe-slinger in the shape of former Dixie Dregs guitarist Steve Morse.

•    Originally released in 1996, and with all songs credited to all five band members - Jon Lord on keyboards, Ian Paice on drums, singer Ian Gillan and Roger Glover on bass guitar - guitarist Morse certainly makes his mark on this guitar orientated, and often quite experimental record. Tracks such as ‘Sometimes I Feel Like Screaming’ and ‘Vavoom: Ted the Mechanic’ would soon
become mainstays of Deep Purple’s live set.

•    Also included on this edition is the Japan bonus track ‘Don't Hold Your Breath’ plus the single edit of ‘Sometimes I Feel Like Screaming’, and makes a worthy addition to the Purple titles already on HNE; "Slaves And Masters” (+ 3 bonus tracks), "The Battle Rages On/Come Hell Or Highwater” (2CD), "Live in Stuttgart 1993” (2CD) and "Live in Birmingham 1993” (2CD).

This product is released June 16 2014 and will not be dispatched before this date.

Track Listing:

1.    VAVOOM: TED THE MECHANIC
2.    LOOSEN MY STRINGS
3.    SOON FORGOTTEN
4.    SOMETIMES I FEEL LIKE SCREAMING
5.    CASCADES: I'M NOT YOUR LOVER
6.    THE AVIATOR
7.    ROSA'S CANTINA
8.    A CASTLE FULL OF RASCALS
9.    A TOUCH AWAY
10.    HEY CISCO
11.    SOMEBODY STOLE MY GUITAR
12.    THE PURPENDICULAR WALTZ

BONUS TRACKS
13.    DON'T HOLD YOUR BREATH (Japan bonus track)
14.    SOMETIMES I FEEL LIKE SCREAMING (Single edit)
