When A Blind Man Cries
Deep Purple cover track; The original track was released as a b-side to the single "Never Before" (1972). Recorded during the "Machine Head" sessions 1971. Richie performed this song on his guitarist friend Stuart Smith's CD "Heaven and Earth." It came out in 1998/1999. The best place to start finding this CD is to visit Stuart's web site at The keyword is also "Heaven and Earth," as Stuart is now in a band with that name. Richie only performs "When a Blind Man Cries" (a cover of a Deep Purple song with the same title) on this CD. The CD has different vocalists on it. Besides Richie, Glenn Hughes (ex-Deep Purple and Black Sabbath), Joe Lynn Turner (ex-Rainbow, Yngwie Malmsteen, and Deep Purple), and Kelly Hanson (ex-Hurricane) are the other vocalists on this CD.
