Another Japanese book

Deep Purple in Book cover

There is another book due out in Japan, and this volume aims to cover a comprehensive history of Deep Purple from Mark 1 to the present day. It is titled Deep Purple in Book and will be published on October 3 by Shinko Music Mook, ostensibly to tie in with the upcoming Japanese tour.

Besides the history of the band, the 376 pages include:

  • previously unreleased photos from 1972 Japan tour and 1985 Oceania/Japan tour;
  • an exclusive interview with Ian Paice, as the only original member;
  • review of the most recent The Long Goodbye tour leg in Europe;
  • biographies of all past and present members of the band;
  • reviews of all band’s albums and videos, studio and live.

Thanks to Alex Kononow and Akemi Ono for the info.

    Lots of ink has been given to previous line-ups. It would be great to get a detailed account of Steve’s recruitment,Jon’s final tours & retirement,Don’s arrival,etc…..right up to The Long Goodbye.
    A look inside the recording of everything since,Purpendicular would be cool as well.
    Lots of this stuff has been covered on various Purple DVDs,but there’s something about the printed page.
