Out in the UK now, the 50th Anniversary Special on Deep Purple from the publishers of Uncut. Nice to see that the Purps are finally getting one of these. Now let us make it sell like crazy, just so that they will know…


Nice Isabel Vollmer cover

Posted: September 21, 2018 in Magazines, General

German edition of Playboy (issue) 10 2018, or 555 from the beginning. Actress Isabel Vollmer on the cover.

Busy days. Having some fun organizing the old (and new) collection in my new place. On the left: Deep Purple family stuff (Tour Programmes, rare magazines etc). On the right: Reserved for Babymetal only.

The Vinyls are finally handled correctly, easy access being all important (see earlier post). Seen here are fairly new Vinyls. The older stuff is getting organized as we speak (great fun to look them over again). The Soundtracks are finding their way to the TV room.

Speaking of which… Here is a nice little corner that I just put in place. On the wall: Rainbow live, signed by Ronnie James Dio (recently showcased on this blog). Signed Callisto (Xena villain) photograph by actress Hudson Leick. Framed Babymetal “Megitsune” poster from Tower Records (Shinjuku, Japan – has also been highlighted earlier on this blog). Yesterday, at about midnight, I blasted some Judas Priest and Babymetal at high volume (testing the new TV in the process) and went outside to check what the neighbours might hear. Pretty much nothing. Good to know. I also have a nice 1960s Exhibition going. Got to have some fun.

(Thank you Kalle for all your help)

Classic Rock 254

Posted: September 14, 2018 in Classic Rock, General, Magazines

Classic Rock (issue) 254 looks like a good read. I have got most of the back catalogue and I intend to keep it. Only mention it because magazine collections tends to be quite heavy when you move house, and I am doing just that now. A couple of weeks from now, most of it will be done. In fact, I have been so busy lately that I have not bought Classic Rock 253 yet, got to look into that.

Nice Zeppelin cover.

XL Airbus

Posted: September 13, 2018 in General, Magazines

German publication Flug Revue (issue) 10 2018. Is it just me or is that XL Airbus an incredible aircraft or what? I wonder if it can fly using one engine?

Pretty happy about this particular autograph, signed by Ronnie James Dio in Stockholm back in 2001 (the full interview can be found on this blog). He signed the spread of an issue of UK Fan Club publication MORE BLACK THAN PURPLE and I later had it framed. He was promoting “Magica” at the time, a truly wonderful album. Very pleasant man.

Good times.

Aviation Archive 39

This is a good cover. UK publication Aviation Archive (issue) 39. Those pilots has to be top notch to fly like that.

The GG (Guy Gene) approves.
