When Purple Records was first set up in 1971, it was by no means a mere vanity label to release Deep Purple product, from Machine Head until the end of the decade; it also set out to nurture and discover raw talent too. The label would eventually become home to debut solo releases from Jon Lord, Roger Glover, David Coverdale and Glenn Hughes, as well as early releases from Yvonne Elliman and Ronnie James Dio with Elf. One of their earliest signings was a hard rock band called Bullet, featuring guitarist John Du Cann and drummer Paul Hammond, both formerly of Atomic Rooster, having played on Death Walks Behind You (1970), and In The Hearing Of (1971), as well as the hit single The Devils Answer. They were joined by Quatermass bassist John Gustafson. After only one single, they discovered a US band already called Bullet, swiftly changing their name to Hard Stuff. Hard Stuff issued their vinyl debut in 1972, with Bulletproof. Kicking off with the single Jay Time, the album also includes an exclusive co-write with Purple label-mates Ian Gillan and Roger Glover on Monster In Paradise, originally written for Quatermass. The original 10 track LP is now augmented with the Bullet 45, Hobo b/w Sinister Minister, plus Jay Time and the non-album B-Side The Orchestrator. The booklet includes an essay by Classic Rocks Malcolm Dome.
