(hennemusic) Deep Purple have released video footage of a rehearsal performance for German television of the 1966 Arthur Lee and Love track, "7 and 7 Is", which appears on their latest album, "Turning To Crime."
"This is a previously unreleased version, recorded in November 2021 during a promotional and press tour of Germany for the latest album," says the band. "The recording is a testimony of the first auspicious meeting after almost two years apart, with the band finally playing live again in the same room.
"It was during this same trip that the video for Fleetwood Mac's 'Oh Well' was filmed." Recorded in Nashville, TN with producer Bob Ezrin, "Turning To Crime" is the first studio record by Deep Purple entirely made of songs not written by the band and previously-recorded by other artists.
The follow-up to 2020's "Whoosh!" features songs originally done by Cream, The Yardbirds, Little Feat, Bob Dylan and more. Watch the video here.
