    Re: For any Deep Purple , Rainbow or Whitesnake fans

    Do they still make those double tape deck cassette recorders and hi-fis? - Dixons definitely used to sell them. I used to use it to record tapes (talking books and all that) that I borrowed from the library to record on a C90 before I returned them to the library. I used to chill in bed listening to Ken Barrie's dulcet tones reading Postman Pat, and it did get me off to sleep!

    I know that there always used to be a copyright warning included in the instruction manual, warning people about taping from other tapes.

    (I am certain that people used to do this to record the relevant bands in this thread, by the way).

    You could have made it into a Zip file, I suppose (if you excuse the pun).

    Robert Plant has trouble singing some of Led Zeppelin's songs due to his voice changing, during a recent reunion tour they had to change the key so he could manage.

    I saw Paul Rogers on Sky and even though he’s looking his age the voice is still fabulous

    i'd almost forgotten the sensual pleasure of opening a gate-fold 12" album sleeve and lowering a stylus onto vinyl!

    Made in Japan...still the benchmark for live albums after 47 years

    I saw Rainbow, at the Rainbow theatre in london, I think it was called the "Between the Eyes" tour. They were using the big electric rainbow over the stage, looked fantastic, but caused a lot of trouble with the power it used. Later incarnations still have the rainbow, but it is not as animated as it was when I saw them. The rainbow was built by Bob See's See Factor company. I've been looking for some time for an online video of it in full action, but failed. See Factor could not help. Bob See died recently.

    I saw Whitesnake for the first time last year, they played a gig in Helsingør, Denmark.
