Thanks, Jsz. I'm eager to hear this.

I see "And the Address" is in the songlist - presumably a remake of the Mark I classic.

I am wondering if there will be a later release with bonus tracks. Purple seems to have a knack for doing that.

I see one option comes with a live disc; I'm more interested in studio outtakes and alternate versions than I am in getting another live disc loaded with "Smoke on the Water," "Highway Star," etc.

With the last album, they did release a few CD singles that had extra songs. I snapped those up.

Welcome. Good post Jim.

It's funny,the only member to play on the original release of And The Address was Paice. It would be interesting to see what brought that back around.

I agree, I hope the do the same as the last release with singles with extra songs,demos,outtakes and live stuff. That was a treat!!!!

Bring it on! I'm ready!

Worldwide chart-topping albums? REALLY? Anyone have statistics to back that up? Very hard for me to swallow that one...............

This is a game that is very old, Rob. Used in music and books where it seems like an impressive thing.

Whose chart are they topping, for how long did it top the chart and how is that chart calculated? All very relevant questions and often sheds light on the actual meaning of the statement.

There are many "charts" and they are broken down in many different ways/genres. Then how long did it remain at the Top or even stay on the "chart". So perhaps on the date of their release, many people bought the album so it topped the chart for a day. Then the numbers are often tracked not buy an actual fan buying it but how many were ordered by stores. As that avenue disappears, it takes a surprisingly low number to actual top some charts.

People wonder why some acts don't release new product anymore. With many of the "Classic Rock" bands, when they release a new album, sales can be in the thousands. Few will ever reach the ten thousand mark of actual physical sales. The demographic that likes those bands do not download music. This renders most albums as a money losing adventure.

So those two albums by Deep Purple may have topped some chart for a day or a week (depending on reporting schedules) and therefore the statement is true. They make no claim on how long they topped charts nor any mention of which charts.

This has been done in the music industry since it began.

i think both albums topped the album chart in germany and sweden and another country lol


CanadianMule - 3/24/2020 at 04:39 PM

There you go - they could have sold 50 copies in Germany - 30 in Sweden and topped the charts.

Show me a book that doesn't have some form of Chart Topping Success written on the front.

I guarantee that James Patterson's next book will be a Number 1 on the charts as it is shipped that way. It is #1 before the trucks unload.


JimSheridan - 3/24/2020 at 05:00 PM

Matt is right - the DP albums have hit # 1 in some individual European countries.

I wouldn't completely sneeze at that, though.

I think it actually may be the case that a band like Purple, with an older audience, actually does sell a decent amount of actual CDs or LPs (or even downloads) because their older audience is used to paying for albums and often likes having the hard copy. An older artist like Steve Hackett is in the same boat too - he will never sell a million copies of an album, but he might actually sell more copies than a younger band with a bigger name / profile does.

DP's 2013 release "Now What" sold over 100,000 copies in Germany. I know that's not amazing by 1970s standards but it is probably pretty good for these days.

right. i believe these 2 newest albums were the best selling DP albums worldwide in years but not sure how many copies sold worldwide

Deep Purple always hits #1 in the charts in my house....that's all that matters!
Album/ record sales are a moot point across the board for the most part, very unfortunate though. As long as it's good and moves me that's all that matters. I am very appreciative that these guys are still putting out new music of this genre , because it is a dying breed.

The live disc is a DVD from a Festival show instead of a CD, so I'm sure you will get the hits.




Not a fan of this first single, but I have liked their recent releases so hopefully it's an outlier.

Single is solid. I like something a little more aggressive out of the gates. I really liked their choice from the last one,InFinite. That one bleed classic rocking DP.
