btn_buynow_SMAll Those Years Ago, the previously announced exclusive Jon Lord photo book, is now available for pre-order in the Jon Lord webshop.

All Those Years Ago is filled with lots of photographs from Jon’s life, both personal and professional. Many never seen before. Jon’s brother Steve Lord has contributed an essay on Jon’s early life before forming Deep Purple.

Jon’s band mates have all contributed stories to the book – Ian Paice, David Coverdale, Glenn Hughes, Ian Gillan, Roger Glover and Ritchie Blackmore. The book also features an introduction by Jon’s friend and fellow keyboard player Rick Wakeman, who has personally signed each of the 500 limited copies.

Running to more than 220 pages and measuring 310 mm square, the book is bound in a purple silk material and comes with a luxury clamshell box, finished in a purple suede material and gold foil embossed with Jon’s distinctive signature.

Inside the box you will also find a 10″ purple vinyl single featuring two unreleased tracks by Jon – one of which is All Those Years Ago, written and recorded with Steve Balsamo in 2010 – and a DVD of Concerto for Group and Orchestra filmed live in Bucharest in 2009. The DVD will also contain audio of the two studio tracks.

Limited to 500 signed copies, pre-sale orders sell at £250 until April 4. From April 4 the price will revert to £275 a unit.

The book will ship in April and this will be the only physical copy of the book available. It will not be available at Celebrating Jon Lord at London’s Royal Albert Hall on April 4.

  1. Let’s say you drop the price to £50 and forget Wakeman’s Hancock, you probably sell at least 10,000 units worldwide. Your total gross would be at least £500,000 .vs being capped at £125,000. Jon’s fans would be happier… and you’d be richer


  2. Will this be available as an e-book? £250 is out of my budget, but I’d love to be able to look at the book on my computer. This would not effect the limited edition. Please consider.


  3. cool


  4. Sorry, the price is just ridiculous 😦


  5. I know this came out a while ago…

    But while this is quite a fancy package, with a quite chunky and classy book full of content (and signed), a record and a DVD, I have to side with the cost-complaints a bit.
    I mean, wouldn’t Mr. Jon Lord want us to rather invest the money into like musical equipment rather than this?… I know it’s for fans, but there are also people who are poor struggling musicians/artists that are generally interested. haha

    Oh well, still a nice set.
