About this album

Burn is the eight studio album by Deep Purple, recorded in late 1973 and released in February 1974. It was also the first album to feature the so-called Mark III line-up, that formed after Ian Gillan left the band in mid-73 and Roger Glover was asked to leave by Ritchie Blackmore.

The album marked the beginning of a new direction in the band’s music. With the addition of the blues-oriented lead singer, David Coverdale, and the funk-influenced rock bass player and singer, Glenn Hughes, the band started to drift away from the traditional hard rock sound. This was even more evident on their next 2 studio releases.

Another major difference in comparison to the old albums was that Burn featured two singers. David Coverdale and Glenn Hughes traded vocal lines on every song except “Mistreated” (sung by Coverdalealone) and “‘A’ 200” (instrumental).

“Might Just Take Your Life” was released as a single.

In 2004, the 30th Anniversary Edition was released with the whole album remastered. Also extensive liner notes and 5 bonus tracks were included. One of these bonus tracks was the original b-side to “Might Just Take Your Life” single, an instrumental composition called “Coronarias Redig”. The other four were new remixes of some of the album tracks.

It was the first of two albums recorded by the so-called Mark III, which included:

David Coverdale - vocals
Ritchie Blackmore - guitar
Glenn Hughes - bass and vocals
Jon Lord - keyboards
Ian Paice - drums
