The singles will be issued in CD-sized replicas of their original sleeves. The box will also include bonus DVD with seven promo videos. Ian himself contributed to the liner notes.

Update (Sep 24): Release date is October 22, 2007 (may vary in different regions).

    FINALLY! The single version of No Laughing In Heaven is available on CD. The promo videos are typical of the period, but it will be nice to have them on DVD. All I have are multi-generation copies, so this will be nice.

    It would be fine if the paper sleeves would have the original gimmick and booklet covers as the original UK-pressings.

    The songs are already on the remastered CD’s. But the Promo-DVD will be fine.

    This is a MUST!
    I can only join and ask for more DVDs from the Gillan days, and please Ian – a solo tour through Europe VERY soon. With all great ones we never hear with Purple.

    I have all of those singles but this box will be great, only thing I wonder is, why only 7 of them?

    George says:

    Gillan were a great hard rocking band, all their albums still sound so good & modern. Future Shock was the best & with the booming bass from John McCoy what a hard rock band . If only Deep Purple can sound a bit harder like them these days on cd.

    Gillan Rocks!!!
    For me Glory Road and Future Shock stand out as classics!
    However I also think that Demon Driver from Magic is an underrated classic!
