Deep Purple - 1987 to 1988

1987 to 1988


People involved

Randy Brecker (hrn); Rachel Collins (bvc); Chrissy Faith (bvc); Ian Gillan (vcl/msc); Roger Glover (msc); Michele Graham (bvc); Shirley Graham (bvc); Dr John (pno); Lloyd Landesman (kbr); Grace Lewis (bvc); Lydia Mann (bvc); Nick Maroch (gtr); Joe Mennonna (hrn/sxp); Andy Newmark (drm); Ira Siegel (gtr); Bette Sussman (bvc); Vaneese Thomas (bvc); George Young (sxp/hrn).

A session-ish thing done to fullfil Gillan's contract with Virgin. A fresh and absolutely superb initiative, which filled one of the gaps between Blackmore's inspirational blurts! The track "Lonely Avenue" appeared on the soundtrack to Rain Man (featuring Dustin Hoffman and Tom Cruise).
