Watch Trailer for IAN GILLAN's 'The Vinyl Collection 1979-1982'
Deep Purple frontman Ian Gillan's 'The Vinyl Collection 1979-1982' box-set will be released on September 23.
Demon Records will release a new must-have Gillan vinyl boxset on September 23. "The Vinyl Collection 1979-1982" will feature five albums, seven LPs in total, including:
'Glory Road' (1980; 2 LPs, with bonus disc 'For Gillan Fans Only')
'Double Trouble' (1981; 2 LPs)
Ian Gillan was delighted with the vintage feel of the finished product. He said: "It's a wonderful thing, vinyl… Best held in two hands and treated with respect, as you place it carefully upon the turntable. You just bought something significant, not easily disposable. And look at the sleeves," he commented, observing one of the records. "Aren't they cool? Read the lyrics and enjoy the artwork, while you are in the groove. No computers involved in the making of this music… Enjoy”.
'Future Shock', Gillan's highest-scoring album, having reached No. 2 in the U.K. chart, will include the same 16-page booklet as featured in its original release.
