"Windows" is the second album of the new Jon Lord reissue series at earMUSIC - to be released on HighResAudio. This 2017 reissue was remastered by Rob Cass from the original stereo mixes at Abbey Road and comes in a high quality digipak with a reworked artwork. Gemini Suite, originally released in 1971 and Windows (1974) will be followed by the reissue of Sarabande (1976) later this year.

With his legendary organ blues-rock sound, Deep Purple’s founder and soul, Jon Lord has influenced decades of rock music. He is without a doubt the pioneer of fusing rock and classical/baroque forms and became one of the most important composers of the last decades while having a major impact on the music business.

His album "Windows", composed by Jon Lord as well as the German composer and conductor Eberhard Schoener was recorded live on June 1st, 1974 at the Herkulessaal of the Munich Residenz with the Orchestra of the Munich Chamber Opera conducted by Eberhard Schoener.

The band for this special occasion was star-studded with musicians like Jon Lord’s former bandmates David Coverdale and Glenn Hughes as well as Tony Ashton, Ray Fenwick and Pete York.

The album consists of two parts. “Continuo on B.A.C.H” is a realisation of an unfinished fugue by J. S. Bach, which he based on a scale using the notes represented by his own name (B.A.C.H.). Lord and Schoener interpreted and finished it. “Window” is based on the idea of a form of chain poetry called Renga, developed during the 14th century in Far-East, where a group of poets co-writing would lock themselves away, writing each verse in turn and continue until the finished product emerged.
