Whitesnake ‘The Deep Purple Old Boys Club’ UD-6575/77

Whitesnake DP OBC

Whitesnake DP OBC b 2

 

Japan: 1982

The name points to the fact that three ex-members of Deep Purple were part of the band’s line up in 1981: David Coverdale, Jon Lord and Ian Paice.

The back cover states that this audience recording comes from the Hammersmith Odeon in London on 09 June 1981. While the band performed there on that day, the recording comes from their Japan tour in the second half of June, most probably from Tokyo’s Nakano Sun Plaza Hall. A collector would just have to compare the UD album with the source tapes (which exist for every night of the tour). 

6575A:  Walking In The Shadow Of The Blues / Sweet Talker / Ready An’ Willing / Don’t Break My Heart Again     
6575B:    Till The Day I Die / Love Hunter / Mickey Moody’s Slide Guitar Solo / Love Hunter     
6576A:    Mistreated / Soldier Of Fortune / Woman From Tokyo     
6576B:    Tomorrow Never Knows / Shuffle     / Lazy     / Ian Paice’s Drum Solo / Shuffle / Ain’t No Love In The Heart Of The City     
6577A:    Would I Lie To You / Fool For Your Loving / Come On
6578A:  Thank You Blues / One Woman Song / We Wish You Well

    Do you know where i can buy this ?

    • I wish I knew. Save a search on eBay and mostly google the title on a regular basis. Be prepared that Japanese releases usually turn up there and shipping will cost you a bundle. In all my visits to record stores in Japan, I have never seen it.
