Deep Purple Diacography
Fandango

Although Joe Lynn Turner had sung in local bands for many years, Fandango was his first professional group, formed around 1975/6. He was lead singer with them (and co-wrote most of their material with keyboardist LaRue), on all four of their studio albums until he was headhunted by Blackmore to join Rainbow. The albums were only issued in America and are quite hard to find. They were all reissued in their original format (with no bonus tracks) in 2006 but only in America, although Best Of CDs in Japan and Europe may be about.
