Roger Glover biography
Having started in the group EPISODE Six, along with singer Ian Gillan, both were hired in DEEP PURPLE when Rod Evans and Nicky Simper left after their third s/t album. Both Glover and Gillan started recording with the Concerto album, and when Gillan was shown the door after the Who Do You Think We Are album, Roger Glover was also asked to leave. In the meantime, Glover was quite handy in the studio and had become the band's producer, as well as producing a few other albums, including Nazareth Razamanaz (he would later do Loud'N Proud and Rampant for them as well). He had also produced RU Dio's Elf band's two album as well the previous year and the second one in 74.

This studio aptitude made him the main artiste credited for the mega-rock opera project called The Butterfly Ball with a prestigious cast, a few months after his Purple departure. Butterfly Ball is often seen as Roger's First solo album. Considerable success plus a record producing career allowed him to take his time and record his second album called Elements, an instrumental affair with four long tracks about the four elements, released in 78.

Ritchie Blackmore invited Glover to join Ritchie Blackmore's RAINBOW, not only as a bassist, but also as a producer and songwriter in 79. Glover remained with the band until 83, producing the band's four albums.
In 84, Glover released his third solo album called Masks, which is pretty much a product of its time.
When Deep Purple reformed under its Mk II line-up, of course Roger was part of it, and he's still in the band nowadays, having become the second-more ancient member after Ian Paice (since Gillan missed a couple of albums during the 90's) and producing the vast majority of theier albums. But during this long tenure, Glover had a fair bit of activities, whether producing albums for other artistes or releasing a duo albums, the first with Ian Gillan called Accidentally On Purpose in 87 and the other called Snapshot in 02.

Glover's calling card as a producer is a rather impressive one, with albums with Rory Gallagher, Judas Priest, MSG, Eddie Hardin, Spencer Davis Group, Whitesnake and quite a few others.

Review by WFV

4 stars It took me many years after discovering my musical tastes to realize how important Deep Purple is in the history of recorded rock music. I wasn't born until they had been around for ten years and I'm from the USA, so being raised on classic rock radio only meant I heard Smoke on the Water and Hush. 1996 Dazed and Confused movie soundtrack had Highway Star on it. I had bought their debut album as a pirated CD at a Big Lots store in high school for $1.99, which was really good but not earth shattering.

Still, it wasn't until much later I heard "Child in Time" on the radio and said "This is AWESOME" "Who is this"? that I dug deeper and found out they have four albums that are put right up there with the best material of the period, music that shaped the face of heavy metal on par with Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath (stalwarts on classic rock radio in my area).

Then I started working with a guy in his fifties and we started talking music. He was an enormous Deep Purple fan, he had all their US released CD's, a bunch of imported bootlegs and solo material from the band members. I tried the Ian Gillan Band first, Clear Air Turbulence is fantastic. I argued with the guy (Kelly is his name) that is actually a funk record. I never would have discovered that album if it wasn't for him, I'm grateful.

I'm also grateful he turned me on to Roger Glover, calling him the "invisible talent" in the band. Elements is a prog/funk/disco/rock/ambient/symphonic tour de force, focusing on the four elements (fire, water, wind, earth) and utilizing to great effect the talents of the Munich Philharmonic.

Elements really is an outlier album in the history of progressive rock and it deserves more exposure among its fans. The second song on Side A, in all of it's King Crimson glory, should appeal to all fans of true prog. My favorite is the light and airy The Fourth Ring's With the Wind. That track has been on repeat in my player many times.

I'm surprised this one hasn't gotten more run, but I'm glad knowing when I listen to it Kelly and I are probably the only people doing so within a thousand mile radius in either direction. A solid four stars.

Thanks to sean trane for the artist addition.
