Deep Purple - Perfect Strangers: Wikipedia Album Entry
Perfect Strangers is the eleventh studio album by Deep Purple, released in October 1984. It represents the first album recorded by the reformed, and most successful and popular, 'Mark II' line-up.
It was the first Deep Purple album in nine years, and the first with the Mk II lineup for eleven years, the last being Who Do We Think We Are in 1973. Ritchie Blackmore and Roger Glover arrived from Rainbow, Ian Gillan from Black Sabbath, Jon Lord from Whitesnake, and Ian Paice from Gary Moore band.
The CD and cassette versions of the album contained the extra track "Not Responsible". The album was remastered and reissued June 22, 1999 with the bonus instrumental track "Son of Alerik". The latter had previously been available as a B-side in 1984.
