Whitesnake

The Purple Album: Special Gold Edition

£39.99

Released: 13th October 2023. David Coverdale was a relatively unknown 21-year-old singer-songwriter when he joined Deep Purple in 1973. He went on to record three classic albums alongside the Rock and Roll Hall of Famers before embarking on his musical journey a few years later with his band, Whitesnake. Coverdale is celebrating the 50th anniversary of his Deep Purple debut this year with a special version of The Purple Album, Whitesnake's tribute to his three-year tenure with the legendary group. The album has been remixed and remastered. The 2-CD/Blu-ray version edition goes beyond the original with the addition of live recordings and concert videos from The Purple Tour ('The Gypsy,' 'Mistreated'), official music videos ('Sail Away,' 'You Fool No One'), and an assortment of pre-viously unreleased material, including six alternate mixes of album tracks. The Blu-ray also offers a behind-the-scenes look at the album's making and a song-by-song commentary by Coverdale.
