Offered for sale is a scarce U.S. quadraphonic pressing of the 1974 LP Stormbringer by Deep Purple.
About this copy: This copy of Stormbringer is an original U.S. quadraphonic copy on the Warner Brothers label.
The cove is VG+, with a modest amount of ring wear and a saw mark in the cover.
The disc is VG++, with no marks, but a few scuffs from the original paper inner sleeve. The record has clearly only been played a couple of times.
A nice copy of a rather scarce Deep Purple LP.
Background: Stormbringer, released in 1974, was Deep Purple’s ninth studio LP. It reached #6 on the UK charts and #23 in the U.S., where it was certified gold by the RIAA.
Stormbringer was one of only two Deep Purple albums to be released in the quadraphonic format in the U.S. (along with Machine Head.)
While you’ll need a quadraphonic sound system to get the full effect of the four channel mix, the mix will sound different from the stereo version even when played on a stereo system.
Stormbringer falls short of the excellence of Machine Head and Who Do We Think We Are, but nonetheless boasts some definite classics — including the fiery “Lady Double Dealer,” the ominous title song (a goth metal treasure), the sweaty “High Ball Shooter,” and the melancholy ballad “Soldier of Fortune.”
