Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Woman From Tokyo

Answer: Who Do We Think We Are

The 1973 album "Who Do We Think We Are" was the last by the "classic" MK II line-up (Blackmore, Gillan, Glover, Lord, Paice) prior to their reformation in 1984. It reached number four in the UK album chart, and spawned one single, "Woman From Tokyo", which remained a live favourite of the band's well into the 21st century.
2. Knocking at Your Back Door

Answer: Perfect Strangers

When the "classic" MK II line-up got back together in 1984, "Perfect Strangers" was the first of just two studio albums released before Ian Gillan was, temporarily, sacked. "Knocking at Your Back Door" was the opening track on the album, and was released as a single. The song contains various sexual innuendos in the lyrics.
3. Soldier of Fortune

Answer: Stormbringer

"Stormbringer", released in 1974, was the second, and last, album by the MK III line-up of Blackmore, Coverdale, Hughes, Lord and Paice. "Soldier of Fortune" was the last track on the album, and has been covered by a number of bands, including Whitesnake and Opeth.
4. Hush

Answer: Shades of Deep Purple

"Shades of Deep Purple" was the band's debut album, released in 1968, with the MK I line-up of Blackmore, Evans, Lord, Paice and Simper. "Hush" was a cover version of a Billy Joe Royal song (written by Joe South) which reached number four on the US billboard chart.
5. Child in Time

Answer: Deep Purple in Rock

"Deep Purple In Rock", sometimes referred to simply as "In Rock", was the first studio album by the "classic" MK II line-up of Blackmore, Gillan, Glover, Lord and Paice. Released in the summer of 1970, the album was a number four hit in the UK. "Child in Time", featuring Gillan's screaming vocals, is a song about nuclear war, and was part of their live set well into the 21st century.
6. The Mule

Answer: Fireball

Released in the summer of 1971, "Fireball" was Deep Purple's first UK number one album. "The Mule" was inspired by the character from Isaac Asimov's "Foundation" series of novels. This song, when played live, included an Ian Paice drum solo.
7. Mistreated

Answer: Burn

Released in February, 1974, "Burn" was the first of two albums by the MK III line-up of Blackmore, Coverdale, Hughes, Lord and Paice. The album reached number three in the UK and number nine in the USA. "Mistreated" was the longest track on the album, and was originally written for the "Machine Head" album. David Coverdale continued to sing this song during Whitesnake concerts after his departure from Deep Purple.
8. Smoke on the Water

Answer: Machine Head

"Machine Head" was recorded in the Grand Hotel, Montreux, in late 1971, and released early the following year, when it reached the top of the UK album charts. The story of the fire at the Montreux Casino, where the recording was originally due to take place, has gone down in rock music folklore, and is told in the lyrics of Deep Purple's most famous song, "Smoke on the Water". Ritchie Blackmore's opening guitar riff is amongst the most well known in rock history, and the track became an essential part of the band's live set, often as the final song of the evening.
9. Anya

Answer: The Battle Rages On

The 1993 album "The Battle Rages On" was recorded by the third incarnation of the "classic" MK II line-up, and reached number 21 on the UK chart. This was the last Deep Purple album to feature Ritchie Blackmore before his final departure from the band. "Anya" is the longest track on the album and remained a live favourite even after Steve Morse replaced Blackmore on guitar.
10. Sometimes I Feel Like Screaming

Answer: Purpendicular

The 1996 album "Purpendicular" was the first by the MK VII line-up of Gillan, Glover, Lord, Morse and Paice, but struggled to a lowly number 58 on the UK album chart. The longest track on the album, "Sometimes I Feel Like Screaming" was released as a single, and became a regular part of the band's live set in the 21st century.
