Deep Purple’s first album with guitarist Steve Morse, Purpendicular, is a sadly overlooked album. Released in 1996, it has better songs than anything Purple had done since 1984’s Perfect Strangers. And Ian Gillan, as well, wrote some killer lyrics. “Loosen My Strings” is one of the album highlights.
