Deep Purple In Rock was released 50 years ago today. It makes me feel nostalgic amongst other things; the trip up to the record shop at school lunch-time to buy the first single off it… then the b-side which trailed the album and made me decide it must go straight onto my wish list, and the saving up to buy it a few weeks later. Getting a sheet of Letraset and putting my initials on the labels in case my brother tried to annex it. So to publish the definitive biography about the album was a real treat. You can read about it on the site, the second edition is still available.
