DEEP PURPLE - THE VISUAL HISTORY (STANDARD EDITION)
Rufus Publications is proud to announce the publication of Deep Purple The Visual History by Chris Charlesworth.
Renowned music journalist Charlesworth has revised his original text from the 1983 edition of his book and added new Introduction and Aftermath chapters. The new look book has been completely redesigned and expanded to over 500 colour pages and now incorporates hundreds of photographs and images, some seen for the first time, including a series of unpublished images from the Made In Japan concerts from 1972. The book is roughly the size of a vinyl LP.
Researched in 1982 through original interviews with members of Deep Purple, the book covers the period between the band’s formation in 1968 through to their eventual break-up in 1976. Forthright and remarkably detailed, it is the ultimate treasure trove of the era when Deep Purple established their legendary status.
Says Charlesworth: “Over the years I’ve been asked over and over again by fans how they could get hold of my Deep Purple book. It disappeared from the shelves because the printers in Japan – like the Casino in Montreux – burned to the ground, taking the film for the book with it. But now, finally, here it is again, new and improved, with more pictures and more text. I hope you like it.”
THE STANDARD EDITION:
A 300mm square, hardback book with printed cover and presented in a cloth bound slipcase.
