Captain Beyond
CD Reviews
Captain Beyond
Review by Gary Hill
This 1972 release was the first of three albums by Captain Beyond, who was at the time Rod Evans (formerly of Deep Purple), Bobby Caldwell (who had played with Johnny Winter, among others), Rhino (Larry Rhinehart from Iron Butterfly), and Lee Dorman (also from Iron Butterfly) with several backing musicians. This one almost qualifies as progressive rock.

Dawn Explosion
Review by Gary Hill
This album is not held in as high a regard by Captain Beyond fans as their first two. It features new vocalist Wally Daffern.

Review by Larry Toering

When Keith Relf essentially put this band together he was obviously looking way beyond the blues to do something that was actually different.

Deep Purple - Deep Purple
Review by Larry Toering

Deep Purple's third album, simply titled “Deep Purple,” was arguably the strongest of the first three, and most of this Eagle re-issue is of digitally remastered quality, done in 2000.

Review by Gary Hill
Well, say what you will but Iron Butterfly were unique. Their sound is definitely dated today, but still there is a certain charm.

Deep Purple - The Early Years
Review by Bruce Stringer
At just under 78 minutes, EMI's first CD compilation of the much-underrated Mark I line-up sees a bold collection taken from Deep Purple's first 3 LPs remastered with astounding clarity and a song collection that confirms the pioneering integrity of the fore fathers of British heavy metal.
