Check out this rare video of Ritchie Blackmore and Deep Purple performing with Joe Lynn Turner on lead vocals.

This clip comes from a show on September 23, 1991, in Poznan, Pokland. It was broadcast on a local TV station at the time to discuss Deep Purple’s new album, Slaves and Masters.

Lead singer Ian Gillan had left Deep Purple in 1989 after his relationship with Blackmore soured. Turner, who had worked with Blackmore in Rainbow, was recruited and recorded just one the album with the band.

As for why this video is "rare," this lineup played just three more shows before Ian Gillan returned.

Blackmore will perform with his Rainbow line-up at the Monsters of Rock festival on June 17 at Freilichtbühne in Loreley, and on June 18 at Festplatz am Viadukt in Bietigheim-Bissingen. He'll perform a U.K. concert on Saturday, June 25 at the Genting Arena in Birmingham. The performance will be Blackmore's first U.K. rock show in more than 20 years.
