Deep Purple photo book

Posted: March 4, 2016 in Books, Classic Rock, Cool stuff, Deep Purple Family


This is the Japanese photo book on Deep Purple that I mentioned in the post about the Tempe 1976 gig earlier this week. It looks like it could be from 1983 but it may also be a fourth edition (they showcase four different covers on the back, same style but in yellow, red, light blue and this one). In any case it is a very nice book and it covers the 1968-1976 period of the band (although there´s only one image of the very first version, MK1.). There´s also some lyrics that has been translated into Japanese. 102 pages.

I remember paying a fortune for books like this on import many moons ago.

(Added 2016-03-06 / First edition came out in 1977, so now you know).
