Welcome to Episode 31 of The Noize Faktory, we are closing in on the end of 2013, and we celebrate with Friday the 13th, just before the big holiday! That is truly Rock N’ Roll. On December 9th, 1973, Deep Purple debuted their new line up for the first time, featuring bassist Glenn Hughes, and unknown vocalist David Coverdale. Today we will feature the debut album from this Mark III lineup of Deep Purple, the incredible BURN!
Hour 1- We open this show the only way that we can with the title track from Purple’s 1973 release, and the hour builds with tracks from the Scorpions, Ozzy, Dirty Streets, Ted Nugent and more. I play you a track from early Fleetwood Mac, from their newly re-released and remastered Live In Boston collection and we have another new track from the Dead Daisies. We also play you one of the other full tilt rock songs from Deep Purple’s BURN called “Lay Down, Stay Down”.
Hour 2 – Leslie West starts the hour with his new recording of the Mountain classic “Long Red” the song that has been sampled and used by more rappers than any other classic rock song that I can find. Odd! Tracks from Billy Gibbons’ pre-ZZ band The Moving Sidewalks, Cheap Trick, Kiss, BTO, Rival Sons, StoneRider and Love And A .38 fill up the hour. We feature the unbelievable “Sail Away” and an incredible live version of “Mistreated” for the Deep Purple BURN tracks in this our.
Hour 3 – After Purple, Coverdale took a couple of the songs from BURN with him, along with Jon Lord and drummer Ian Paice. I have a live take of “Might Just Take Your Life” from an early line up of Whitesnake, from their Live In The Heart Of The City album, this track was on the 1978 portion that we in the States didn’t see until years and years later. For the last track featured from BURN on this show I play the 2004 remix of the album track “You Fool No One”, which has a great drum intro from the amazing Ian Paice. The hour is full of great songs, including new music from Alter Bridge, Winery Dogs, Twenty Two Hundred, and the Walking Papers.
