A Clockwork Orange is a classic in every sense of the word. It’s a Stanley Kubrick film adaption of a book by the same title written by Anthony Burgess (great book), and it has secured a lifetime position in my top ten favourite movies. I might review it at some point, but for now I am just offering you a chance to download it’s horrorshow soundtrack, get it at the link at the bottom of this page, or you can buy it here.
The above clip is from Deep Purple’s live performance with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra at the Royal Albert Hall in 1969. This was one of the first attempts to blend classical Orchestral music with rock and roll. The result was a strange and exciting colliding of musical worlds which blended into one of the finest moments in music history. I have only uploaded the album, I will eventually upload the DVD, but for now you can either download the album here, OR you can buy it here.

If you’ve never heard this before, or if the only song by Deep Purple you know is Smoke on the Water, then you are in for a rude shock. Deep Purple are second only to CREAM. In many ways they are much better, truly a musical force to be reckoned with!
