Official Bootlegs series makes live recordings of the band from
1968 to 1976 available to the collector. These releases are licensed
from Deep Purple (Overseas) Ltd. ensuring royalties go through
to the band rather than the bootleggers. Titles are sourced from
the best available audience, soundboard and media recordings,
or dubs from original vinyl. Digital audio restoration is carried
out to improve the quality as much as possible, however the sound
quality is not comparable with normal CD releases.
first all titles came packaged in card digipaks. However repressing
in this format has caused problems, and a number of the titles
went out of print. These will gradually be reissued in regular
jewel cases with 8 page booklets. The music will be the same but
the CDs will have new front / back cover designs. Each title reissued
this way will have a new catalogue number to avoid confusion.
Sold individually, you can collect just those you want, or the
you're sitting on any soundboard or clear audience tapes from
68-76 we're interested in hearing from you. Several collectors
have already come forward with material and confidence is guaranteed.
