Vinyl and more vinyl


Yet another bout of vinyl reissues: Rhino is releasing Who Do We Think We Are (1LP), Burn (1LP), Come Taste The Band (1LP), and Made in Japan (2LP) as a part of their “Rocktober” event. Who Do We Think We Are and Burn are coming on October 11th, with Come Taste The Band and Made in Japan following a week later. All albums are pressed on purple vinyl.

Thanks to Jim Collins and BraveWords for the info.

    Fuck me sideways… the amount of milketing of fans is just depressing. At least add some bonus tracks, new/rare pics or something to justify another daylight robbery of the back catalogue.

    It is that time of year again folks. It is poor old Santa I feel sorry for. Dragging all these re releases, best of greatest hits etc out every year for xmas, not to mention trying to descend the chimneys in everyone’s homes. Then he has to drag them all the way back up again because most people are not interested, again. Merry Xmas Santa & yes that is a hint not to bother dropping into my abode, again. Unless you have something really exciting that I have never heard before. Cheers.

    I now and then have this craze in which I want it all and tend my order myself silly.

    Fortunately I m relatively measured after all these years
    I behave as the fan who knows he had to drag himself out of a financial black hole and that it took him years.

    Although I have this craving for certain remasters and purple vinyl, I have restrained myself again.

    I did pre order a Blackmore photobook and 1 CD of Last Cracks “The Uprising”.

    I also bought myself a ticket for LAST IN LINE.

    Btw, I still have from both Bananas and Now What a copy to sell.

    UMG released these albums about a year ago. I have no complain about these Purple reissues by Rhino, I’m sure I’ll try to buy some, but what about “Abandon” and “Bananas”?!

    “Abandon” and “Bananas”, please!
