Liner Notes

When Roger Glover stopped in to talk with Scott Muni in 1988, Deep Purple was celebrating the 20-year anniversary of their break-through single, a cover of Joe South's "Hush." To commemorate the event, the 1988 version of the group re-recorded the song and included it on their new live album, Nobody's Perfect. This album release and the accompanying tour serve as the basis for the discussion here, resulting in some great sound bytes regarding the importance of live music.
