“You Fool No One”

Disc 2 comprises:
“Space Truckin'”
“Going Down”
“Highway Star”
Plus a 1975 interview with David Coverdale, Glenn Hughes and Ian Paice.

Meanwhile, Deep Purple’s current singer has been talking about the band’s new 2013 album
“It’s being mixed as we speak,” Ian Gillan told “We’ve finished recording. It’s a new tone, it’s a new direction, it’s fresh stuff. I think it was all written and recorded in Nashville, and the reason we went there – not to make a country record, but because Bob Ezrin, our producer, lives in Nashville and so it made a lot of sense because he had all the studio facilities and back up and everything else. So it made it really easy.”

“I can’t compare it with any other album either, as far as I know. It will obviously find a niche somewhere when it comes out in April, so I’m looking forward to hearing it.”
