The Deep Purple Appreciation Society (DPAS) have announced the release of Deep Purple’s Stormbringer album. There will be a 2 disc limited slipcase edition with original quad 4.1 mixes and other goodies, including Glenn’s excellent remix work, video elements and more.
There is a double gatefold vinyl edition planned, also limited. These are available to pre-order from dpas mailorder (anyone who ordered before this was posted will automatically be shipped the 2xCD edition). Once the two disc Ltd Edition has gone, the title will be issued as a lower priced 1xCD regular edition with the album, remixes and a few other items. It looks like the old CD version is being deleted so if you prefer the softer CD transfer, and haven’t got this, best order sharpish. Glenn has contributed some text for the booklet, and a super big transparency of the original sleeve painting has been unearthed in America to use on the reworked sleeve. EMI say they have put Stormbringer back a couple of weeks to February 2009 due to scheduling pressure.
