Party_stuff 

Preparations for the upcoming Deep Purple party at Jane Doe in Östersund (Jämtland county, Sweden) on November 23 are complete. I am as ready as I can be, and today I took a snapshot of the accumulated stuff that will be given away for free in different ways on the night. What I have in store for the night is in fact nearly 400 magazines, 70 CD´s, 30 DVD´s, 40 books, 6 buttons, 2 t-shirts and a can koozie (!).

MAGAZINES – Everything from old DEEP PURPLE FOREVER issues to recent publications from RETROFUTURE. Add a few surprises, including a few copies of a MORE BLACK THAN PURPLE “Rainbow Rising” special issue, and you know what to look forward to. 35 different titles in all. Guests will be able to pick out whatever they want from two boxes. Some magazines will be spread out on the tables for viewing.

DVD´s – 3 copies of Deep Purple´s “Copenhagen 1972”, 10 copies of Deep Purple´s “Australia 1999”, 3 copies of Jon Lord´s “With Pictures”, 14 copies of Deep Purple´s “Deepest Purple” (CD/DVD version).

The t-shirts, buttons and the can koozie is Tommy Bolin related.

This is the final post about this before the night, pictures from the event will appear on this blog on Sunday. A full story and plenty of snapshots will be published in RETROFUTURE 7 in 2014. This will also cover the Tommy Bolin festivities that were held in Sioux City in August.

A big thank you to all that have contributed. To the Tommy Bolin Archives, Deep Purple Overseas, Warners, Edel and Martin Popoff. See earlier posts for more information about the party (see categories).
