Stegzy's Music Project

A commentary on Stegzy's album collection

Deep Purple & Royal Philharmonic Orchestra: Concerto for Group and Orchestra – Deep Purple [#355]

on July 15, 2015

Concerto_Deep_PurpleHaving had this in my collection since Jamie gave it me nearly fifteen years ago, I finally got round to listening to it for the first time.

I wish I hadn’t.

Jon Lord thought it was a good idea to get Richie Blackmore et al to perform along side an orchestra. These days this happens nearly every day, Magnification by Yes, Pink Floyd’s The Wall and most stuff by Rick Wakeman. Back then it was new and innovative.

In short, this is probably one of the reasons why I ran this project. To weed out the shite from my collection. This album is an example of that shite that is now weeded.
