In an instrumental mood of late, I've been listening to this fine pair from Deep Purple's Ritchie Blackmore and Jon Lord. First up is a track called 'Weiss Heim' which was a Rainbow b-side from the time of their fourth album, Down To Earth (1982), though not on the original LP.
Weiss Heim (1979)
Next is a lovely reflective melody from Jon's 1982 solo album, Before I Forget. Yes, those DP rockers certainly had a softer side.
For a Friend (1982)
