In 2015 Whitesnake took their newest release ‘The Purple Album’ around the world on ‘The Purple Tour’. Featuring epic re-workings of David Coverdale’s Deep Purple songs and a raft of Whitesnake classics, the tour was one of the bands most successful and talked about in years. Now this new, official limited edition release from Rufus Publications documents that groundbreaking tour. At almost 300 pages long and packed with exclusive behind the scenes photos, notes from the band and a song by song breakdown of the tour’s epic setlist, this incredible tour is captured and documented with hundreds of amazing shots, taken mostly on the sold out UK leg of the tour. Printed and bound in the UK, this LP sized, casebound photographic book is limited to 300 copies worldwide and is the first official Whitesnake book. The book comes in its own Purple clamshell box with 3D lenticular and is personally signed by all the band members. Each copy is individually numbered.
BOOK 3 Supplied in a clamshell box with a 3D lenticular: Deep Purple The California Jam – personally signed by drummer Ian Paice. Numbered 1 to 50. On April 6th 1974 Deep Purple appeared on stage at the California Jam festival at the Ontario Speedway in California.Taking top billing at the all-day event, and with great weather, Deep Purple and the other bands drew a crowd of around 165,000 people. It became the largest single-day paid attendance in U.S. rock concert history. This astonishing concert is now the subject of a new documentary book, Deep Purple at the California Jam, released December 2012. Collecting together hundreds of black and white and colour images from a number of photographers who had all area access to the concert (and rehearsals), the large 12" by 12" format presentation allows these images to shine. Most of the photographs have never been seen before and are being fully restored and colour corrected. Backing the images up is a detailed and lengthy essay on the concert and the build-up to the performance, from the first meetings by the promoters through to the completion of the PA towers. The text is supported by an impressive collection of rare memorabilia including internal documents, set-lists, passes, posters, tickets and even the repair bills for the TV camera. In total this is the most comprehensive publication ever devoted to a single Deep Purple performance and is 300 pages long.
