Deep Purple books for 50th anniversary

Celebrating Deep Purple‘s 50th anniversary, three huge books – including Jon Lord’s photo biography All Those Years Ago – have been packaged together in a boxed collection of just 50 copies.

The books have been personally signed by Jon Lord, Ian Paice and the entire, current Whitesnake lineup.

DEEP PURPLE – CALIFORNIA JAM – a detailed account of Deep Purple’s largest concert

JON LORD – ALL THOSE YEARS AGO – Jon’s life in photos and words

WHITESNAKE – THE PURPLE TOUR – Coverdale & co. on tour with the Purple catalogue

All the books are packaged together with the California Jam concert on double vinyl album and a California Jam t-shirt.

Signed by Jon Lord…? Yes. These special 50 copies include a personally signed Jon Lord postcard, mounted inside the cover.

Manager Tarquin Gotch explains:

– Jon was always so kind and patient when fans asked for his signature – but being a manager, I was always trying to get him out of the venue or studio or hotel, and into a waiting car, so we asked Jon to sign a load of postcards that we could give away if we were short on time and he could not sign anything on the spot. Earlier this year we found these postcards, and rather than leave them sitting in our files, we gave them to Rufus Stone to include in their Deep Purple box set because we are fans of all the three books, but of course, most of all Jon’s.

The box set has been created by Rufus Stone.

The DEEP PURPLE 50 book box set is available only from PledgeMusic.
