Deep Purple – “Strange Kind of Woman”

I’ve been immersed in Deep Purple MKII for most of the past few days and I have to say I think Fireball is not only classic, but perhaps the highpoint of that incredible run. This song was the only track that stayed a staple of their live shows, and I have to assume it is because it is basically three Blackmore solos punctuated by a few short bursts of “boogie with Gillan.”

Speaking of Ian, I’m not sure what substances he might be on in this clip, but whatever it is has put him in a rather strange, if still vocally magnificent, place.
