Turner also worked with Norwegian bassist and composer Jan Holberg. The two first joined forces on Holberg's album Sense of Time which saw Turner performing a more funk-orientated repertoire, showcasing his vocal versatility. The collaboration also resulted in Turner's appearance in a documentary film Street of Dreams which follows Holberg from Norway as he gets his first real chance of a major breakthrough on tour with his childhood hero Joe Lynn Turner.
In he sang a few songs in a guest role on the Avantasia album The Mystery of Time , released in March. On February 9, , Turner was a guest singer, alongside the winner Slavin Slavchev , in the final of the third season of X Factor Bulgaria.

Well, such is the life of a cd collector and Deep Purple fan. Deep Purple's last concerts in Japan occurred in December , and sadly Tommy Bolin's severe drug and alcohol addiction would kill him one year later. The final Japanese show was recorded and released in that country in an edited form in As with the other live discs from this era of the band, there are highlights, including "Wild Dogs" as sung by Tommy Bolin and a smokin' rendition of "Getting Tighter.
A a co-worker said as I was playing this CD at work, "Pick a key, any key. Burn 2. Love Child 3. Lady Luck 5. Smoke on the Waters 6. Soldier of Fortune 7. Highway Star. However, I cannot tell if it's from the same concert or not. The album cover on this vinyl release has this album being recorded on December 15, as Budo-Kan.
Though this seven song collection is obviously not the entire show, the short single album set includes some of the better songs from the concert and is a nice collector's album. It was the first Deep Purple studio album in nearly nine years, and the first with this classic lineup in eleven years, the last being Who Do We Think We Are in Pure heavy rock and roll brilliance.
The album generated several singles including the title track, "Nobody's Home" and "Knocking at Your Back Door", all of which are still played regularly on classic rock radio. The CD version of the album contains the extra track "Not Responsible", not available on the vinyl version which I also own. Dream Theater covered "Perfect Strangers. It was the second recording by the re-formed and highly successful Mark II lineup, and would be their last for a while as well.
The band members were involved in some well publicized struggles with each other. Despite inner tensions, the follow up to the spectacular "Perfect Strangers" is nearly as good. The song writing is still brilliant however the updated sound, which was mostly due to the overly polished 's production, robbed the band of that raw sound they had been known for. With a slightly heavier, dirtier production this album would have been just that much better. It's pretty obvious that the band were trying to update their sound and stay relevant.
The album didn't generate nearly the buzz that "Perfect Strangers" had previously. As it stands, however, "The House of Blue Light" is still a highly enjoyable album.
Deep Purple - Nobody's Perfect Mercury This CD has been on my want list for years. I use to own it on vinyl back in the day and loved it. However, thanks to Lala. Unfortunately when this album came out the record labeled pulled one of those games where different formats had different track listings.
In "Nobody's Perfect" was re-released on CD with all 14 tracks. So, this CD is still one my want list for the time being. The music itself is just a blast. The band was rejuvenated and seemed like they were just enjoying themselves on the stage.
Still, the energy and enthusiasm the band has on stage comes across well. There is plenty of silly banter and a few odd intro jams on songs that make it obvious the band was having a bit of fun. Ian Gillian had performed Jesus on the original Broadway recording. As well, "Woman from Tokyo" ends with an impromptu Buddy Holly medley. The set list is mostly crammed full of 'classic' material and peppered with a few newer songs.
It's sort of funny hearing the crowd reaction to these songs as opposed to the older material. The crowd reaction is much more enthusiastic to the "classic" songs rather than they are to the newer material, which is sort of a shame as their new material at this point was great.
The album closes with a a new studio version of the lates hit "Hush". However, both live albums capably capture the band at a spot in their long history. The album featured vocalist Joe Lynn Turner, who had replaced Ian Gillan the previous year and was once the lead singer of Blackmore's post-Purple band Rainbow.
When it was first released I was a bit disappointed. Ian Gillan just seemed to be such an intregal part of the band and that was missing. Of course the fact that he was one of my favorite vocalists ever played a part in that as well. Several years later, I stumbled across a used copy that was ultra-cheap and decided to grab it to round out the collection. I listened for the first time and discovered and album that was not nearly as bad as I throught it would be.
The albums opener "King of Dreams" is excellent. However, the band were obviously still trying to stay relevant and had updated their sound. John Lord carries much of the tunes with Blackmore soloing over top. His Strat not nearly as prominent in the mix as it could be.
However "King of Dreams" is an underrated classic form the Purple catalog while "Fortuneteller", for which the album cover is derived is pure drivel. This disc also marked the return of lead singer Ian Gillan, once again, who had ditched out in This may be why both Ian Gillan and Ritchie Blackmore left shortly after this one was released.
