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.
