The Unmistakeable Sound of Independence since 1978 | Call to order: +44 (0)20 8996 3120
• 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 But in 1989 there was the shock announcement that Gillan had been replaced by Blackmore and Glover’s former Rainbow band mate and singer, Joe Lynn Turner.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.
• 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’.
