Classic Purple bootleg

Posted: August 15, 2012 in Classic Rock, Deep Purple Family

This old japanese vinyl bootleg is probably my most beloved collectors item. Recorded in Japan 1975 with Tommy Bolin on guitar it was released with the rather embarrasing title “Get It While It Tastes!” by the culprits behind it. Not the greatest title ever but that cover is quite nice, that is a picture of the japanese tour programme photographed on a table. Not a bad idea.

In any case, I managed to get David Coverdale to sign it when I met him in 1981 and he obviously reacted to the title as well.

I do recall ordering this through a friend of mine (from a source in Japan) and the price was quite high, but as a major fan back then I just had to have it. I think it was worth it in the end, which is rare for bootlegs.

Those were the days.
