deep_purple_hardroad

Parlophone Label Group will release a new Deep Purple set next month, called Hard Road: The Mark 1 Studio Recordings 1968-69.

This clamshell box contains five CDs which present stereo and mono versions of the first two albums (Shades Of Deep Purple and Book Of Taliesyn) along with third album Deep Purple and a selection of bonus tracks. Although the extra material was largely issued as part of the EMI reissues in 2000, this will be the CD debut of Book Of Taliesyn in mono and everything is remastered for 2014.

Hard Road: The Mark 1 Studio Recordings will be released on 28 July 2014.

  1. Mig says:

    I assume the purple square with the modern design at the bottom of the image is a booklet, and that the rarities are all in the thing that looks suspiciously like the cover of the third Purple LP? (Otherwise, is the third LP actually included?)

  2. John Ireland says:

    The 1st 7 tracks on the last disc are the tracks from the 3rd Deep Purple album.

  3. Boaz says:

    hope the remasters are not going to be flat and loud…

  4. Sean Wylie says:

    Any word if they are doing a US release?
