    Just started in with a 5-CD compilation of Deep Purple called Hard Road: The Mark 1 Studio Recordings 1968-69.

    The first track of CD 1 (Shades of Deep Purple), And The Address, sounds what Hawkwind later sounded like, that is, “space rock” — but Hawkwind were formed toward the end of 1969. And The Address is from 1968 — which means that Deep Purple, often identified as “heavy metal”, were really more at the forefront of space rock. Here the similarity between this Deep Purple track and what Hawkwind went on to become known for?

    In this clip, Hugh Hefner gets a lesson on electric guitar before “The Deep Purple” play their first big hit, Hush (Note: First minute and a half is the same as the preceding post).

    No, ‘Nita, actually that’s original singer Rod Evans. Right now I’m listening to this ethereal DP cover of the Beatles’ Help…

    Yeah, ‘Nita, when Rod Evans was fronting the band they were more psychedelic, more pop, and even folk — lots of Beatles covers and even Neil Diamond, like the one below.

     

    But I think Ritchie Blackmore liked the direction that Ian Gillan’s vocal sound took them in — because you note they seemed more hard rock/heavy metal after that, never venturing back to the adventurous space-like pop they did before. How about when in 1976 Blackmore formed Rainbow? It was like a clone of the Gillan-era Deep Purple, with Man On The Silver Mountain.

     

    But I like this “Mark 1” Deep Purple a lot — you can really zone out, really get into your mind with these jams.

    Nice, you can hear it is Deep Purple but at the same time not so deep purple either if you know what i mean, and he had a lovely voice Evans. Very 60’s sound, awesome, i think it is the Jon Lord organ that tells me it is Deep Purple playing. I have seen that record cover before but never heard or listened to it, for sure gonna give it a spin 🙂

    Yeah, ‘Nita, I know what you mean about Jon Lord being a big part of their signature sound, like in their version of Hey Joe. That organ sound, and the way it’s played, kind of reminds me of Vanilla Fudge (You Keep Me Hanging On).

    Rod Evans went on to front the heavy ass Southern rock/psych band Captain Beyond, whose self titled first album is something of a lost classic
