💿💿💿SCRAPS...FROM THE PAST💿💿💿 "Slaves and Masters" is the 13th album by the Hard Rock Legends Deep Purple, and was released in 1990, on October 5th. This is the one and only DP with Joe Lynn Turner as vocalist, well known as singer for Rainbow, Yngwie Malmsteen, Hughes Turner Project. Before the choice of Turner, the band had considered Jimi Jamison of Survivor. Following its release, Slaves and Masters peaked at No. 87 on the US Billboard 200 Chart. The album sold below expectations, as compared to Deep Purple's previous album. A song from the Slaves and Masters recording sessions was rearranged for the soundtrack of the 1990 movie Fire, Ice and Dynamite. Jon Lord did not play on the song, which was performed by the four other members of the Mark V. Deep Purple had a relatively success touring in support of Slaves and Masters in 1991, especially for the band's European leg. Turner was still a member of the band hen they began writing and recording their next album in 1992, but under pressure from managemente, DP decided to bring back Ian Gillan Official Site for their 1993 studio album "The Battle Rages on". The album was promoted with two clips for the songs "King of Dreams" and "Love Conquers all". (Public pics caught on Fb).
