Deep Purple

Deep Purple” was composed by pianist Peter DeRose in 1933. Originally instrumental, it was so popular that lyrics were added in 1938 by Mitchell Parish. In the following years it was successfully recorded by numerous artists.

In 1963, the brother and sister team of Nino Tempo and April Stevens released a version that went on to hold the number one position on the USA charts for twelve weeks.

In 1965, the Shadows included an instrumental version of the song on their album, “The Sound of The Shadows”. This is the basis for my rendition, which is not a straight cover.
