  1. just waiting for the official release and happ glad to see Jon Lord in a good condition. Thank you Jon for all those years and fit me up to learn what music is.


  2. This is one piece of music I can’t wait to hear in its full glory. Jon’s ‘baby’ – grown up at last! 🙂

    All the best, Dear Jon!

  3. The tragedy of every recorded album: So many unheard licks, left on the cutting room floor 🙂


  4. Sounding great! Waiting for the september release. The concerto is one of my favorites. I wish you all the best Jon!


  5. This album is something worth waiting for. The concerto was the first Deep Purple album I bought as an eleven year old with my pocket money.It was a choice between the concerto or `In Rock`,the combination of classical and rock outweighed the sublime noise of the latter. God bless you maestro.


  6. Proud and delighted to have been at the Royal Albert Hall for the first performance…. Can it have been that long ago?! Can’t wait to hear the new release….. Be well Jon


  7. Greetings from Croatia…awesome music…come to Zagreb !!!
    Zagreb Rocks, all the best from Rudi & family


  8. I have the 1969 recording, the 1999 recording, the DVD and I saw the concerto Live in Rotterdam in 2000. I certainly will buy this one too, it’s such a great piece finally matured to what is should be.
    Hopefully you will be able to do some live performances again. It is so awkward to see you with short hair…


  9. Jon, what about revival of quartet and drum-solo in Second Movement?


  10. Amazing


  11. Love & Light and Rest In Peace!


  12. I’m not too surprised to hear Joe Bonamassa is recording the works of others, and I’m sure we’ll hear an organ knock-off of the great Jon Lord to go along with all the other things he’s lifted from others.

    Rest in peace Dr. Lord


  13. Rip.
    A good man, a great artist, musician and human being he was.-
    He´ll live on, in so many people´s memories…


  14. Buonasera
    Mister Lord la sua mancanza si sente ogni giorno
    cordialmente
