The new Deep Purple release “Graz 1975” arrived in both LP and CD format in the mail today. Friends of this blog will know that I used to run a couple of Deep Purple clubs here in Sweden back in the day (1978-1983 and 1991-2003) and so my interest in this goes Deep. I also have a rather nice collection so I have been helping out with scanning archive material for Deep Purple Overseas for them to use in their business ventures and this time around I can see that they have used a few of the scans for this release. Pictured above is a promo shot distributed by EMI Sweden back in 1975 that was certainly used. It shows the band on their visit to Sweden on this tour getting Gold Awards for “Burn” and “Stormbringer”. The guy you don´t recognise is Ture Sölsnaes from EMI.

Nice to be able to help out a little.
