Deep Purple’s Roger Glover to re-release his solo album “Snapshot”

Almost 20 years after the release of his fourth solo album, Roger Glover has announced the long-awaited reissue of “Snapshot.” The album will be released October 8 on CD and November 19 on vinyl.

In 2002, the DEEP PURPLE bassist joined forces with the Guilty Party, teaming up with vocalist Randall Bramblett, daughter Gillian Glover, and guitarist Warren Haynes, among others, to deliver this blues rock album. It’s a true highlight of Glover’s solo career, peppered with swing, reggae and jazz influences.

The reissue comes with a big plus, as it not only brings back these 14 wonderful blues songs, it also comes fully remastered with five previously unreleased bonus tracks, showing the album in a whole new light. The new Roger Glover notes round out the additional content and offer insight into the recording and writing process for this album. The album will also be released on vinyl for the first time, with a new illustration.

Last December, Glover confirmed that he is still planning on publishing his autobiography. “I’ve been toying with the idea of ​​writing a book for several years, but haven’t done much about it,” he said in a new interview with a fan that was posted on the band’s record company YouTube channel, earMUSIC. “But since this pandemic situation and being trapped at home, I have started with a lot of energy and have made great progress. The only problem is that, as much as I progress, I realize how much I still have to do and that it is very important. Now I have come to the point of joining PURPLE. And a lot of that was easy, because I kept diaries in the 60s. So a lot of notes and lists of concerts and things were in the diaries. But when I joined PURPLE, I stopped writing, so everything disappeared. Now that’s all I can think of, so it’s hard. But I’m going to do it, I’m determined.

DEEP PURPLE’s latest album “Whoosh!” Was released in August 2020 via earMUSIC. The LP was once again directed by Canadian producer Bob Ezrin (KISS, PINK FLOYD, ALICE COOPER), who also worked on the band’s two previous studio albums, 2017’s “Infinite” and “Now What?” of 2013.
