Sounds | Deep Purple, Oh Well


Ligt er nu écht nog iemand te wachten op nieuw materiaal van deze ouwe knarren (all due repsect!)? Oh Well, zullen velen nu denken, zolang er goede muziek uit hun knoken komt, why not. Dit nummer klinkt inderdaad straf, straffe bluesrock. Natuurlijk, want het is oorspronkelijk geschreven, opgenomen en uitgebracht in 1969 door Fleetwood Mac (Peter Green era dus) én diende als inspiratie voor een nummer genaamd Black Dog van die andere dinosaurus, Led Zeppelin. Een cover dus die niets toevoegd aan het origineel, maar wel een best geslaagde opfrisbeurt heeft gekregen.


Turning to Crime verschijnt op 26 november via earMusic / V2 Records.

Label and management would like to state that nobody from the band or crew, nor members of the media, were hurt during the shooting of the video in Germany in early October. “Everyone knows ‘Oh Well’ is a great song,” Roger Glover says. “Steve did the demo for that one. You never quite know where it‘s gonna go with Steve because he is very inventive. Right up until the point, with a couple of verses in, it was pretty much the same as the original. And then, all of a sudden, it took off like a rocket… in some other space.”

“Turning to Crime” is the first studio album by Deep Purple entirely made of songs not written by the band and previously recorded by other artists. It is produced by Bob Ezrin.

Deep Purple’s studio album "Whoosh!", an album saluted by prestigious chart achievements (3rd consecutive #1 in Germany, as well as well as #4 in the UK) and acclaimed by critics who praised the creative strength of a band that continues evolving with every release, was the latest in the band’s “time trilogy”. The "time trilogy", consisting of "NOW What?!", "inFinite" and "Whoosh!" (2013, 2017 and 2020) has sold over 1 million albums, topped the charts 11 times and achieved more than 40 Top 10 positions worldwide.
