Sunbury ’75 program on Kindle

Deep Purple (Overseas) continue their expansion into the digital world with a republishing of the original Sunbury ’75 event program on the Kindle format.

The Sunbury Rock Festival was an annual Australian rock music festival held on
a 620-acre private farm between Sunbury and Diggers Rest, Victoria, which was
staged on the Australia Day (26 January) long weekend from 1972 to 1975. It
attracted up to 45,000 patrons and was promoted by Odessa Promotion as
Australia’s Woodstock. The Sunbury Pop Festivals signalled the end of the
hippie peace movement of the late 1960s and the beginning of the reign of pub
rock. In 1975 Deep Purple were head-liners.

Also due soon are reproductions of the Rainbow 1976 and 1978 tours…..

    Unfortunately Sunbury was a flop for DP in ’75….they played poorly and possibly hastened the demise of the annual event…..sad though it is to say this of my heroes…i was let down and lost some respect for them at that time…regained it in 1984 though….

    I’m going to load my Kindle with the whole available lot, including the Glenn Hughes book.

    What’s wrong with a Kindle? Dude your amount of reading reflects your quality of writing and communication skills, apparently you don’t do much reading.

    I left out the part where I don’t have a Kindle, yet… does it hurt your eyes to read between the lines? 🙂 I suspect I’ll be getting one… like most consumers seem to be opting over a lot of other similar devices. Why not load it with some official Purp to suit the purpose all the more.

    I would prefer hard copies of any programs through the years and suggest reprints based on the original dimensions would be a good idea. Enough time has gone by to render most originals prohibitively expensive–if you could find them–and authentic reprints would make great reading and display materials. I have no interest in the electronicised versions.

    As for Kindle, I am philosophically opposed to such devices in a world in which politically incorrect parts of speeches engraved on monuments are conveniently deleted, and “offensive” words removed from novels and books.

    Dude you are a straight shooter and your views are much appreciated here….
    I couldn’t agree with you more regarding your point and reference to ‘monuments’. I visited DC this last Summer and was struck with total awe of the history there. It’s overwhelming. Yet as you state here, politics and the PC police are step by step trying to manipulate said history and our culture toward their views….very dangerous this ‘deletion’ of quotes.
