“Johnny’s Band” is the third single from the success album “inFinite”, following “Time For Bedlam” and “All I Got Is You”. The song is an affectionate portrait of a fictional band that quickly gain success and enjoy every side that comes with it. As often happens, Johnny’s Band can´t help but lose it, and break up, only to find out later that the pleasure still to be performing live is all that matters, even when the hype, the success and the glory have long vanished.

As special bonus treats, the single includes 4 previously unreleased songs. Starting with the rehearsal recording by no other than Roger Glover, the “In & Out Jam” gives fans a glimpse behind the scenes of the album recordings.

On top, the EP is peppered with three amazing and previously unreleased live versions. “Strange Kind Of Woman”, “The Mule” and “Hell To Pay” were recorded on the successful “NOW What?!” world tour in Gaevle, Sweden on August 10th, 2013 and are, just like the rehearsal recording, only available on this EP.

FROM THE SETTING SUN... (IN WACKEN)

Recorded and filmed in Wacken 2013, Deep Purple performed a unique concert, throwing away all their usual stage routine (and sometime arrangements). 

During this concert, Deep Purple left their “safe zone”. That is why this concert is the one that represents a feeling of improvisation and electricity similar to the band’s classic years - more than many other live releases by the band.

... TO THE RISING SUN (IN TOKYO)

If Wacken shows Deep Purple’s performance in front of a huge rock audience, playing as if they had to leave all their habits behind, the Tokyo show 2014 is presenting Deep Purple completely at ease with their history and themselves. On the very same venue where the band has written rock history with the album “Made In Japan”, Deep Purple went on stage without nostalgia and with the attitude of a band that is physically led by the music. Song after song, Purple play a flawless show going back and forth in time Deep Purple’s many sides are at their best here: the energy but also the groove, the great solo moments by Don Airey and Steve Morse. The soft sides and their energetic heavy counterparts.

This limited and numbered 2-Blu-ray edition appears as special collectors item in a high quality packaging including two outstanding shows and a newly designed artwork.
