Final Details For Deep Purple 'Stormbringer' Remaster Announced

The Deep Purple Appreciation Society have announced the following final details for the remastered version of Deep Purple's 1974 album, Stormbringer:

There is a disc CD limited slipcase edition. CD1 is the original stereo album remastered, plus Glenn Hughes' excellent remixes and a couple of the quad mixes reduced to stereo. CD2 is a DVD format carrying the full quad album in 4.1 audio (it is NOT a true DVDA or SACD). Despite earlier hopes (and one or two sites suggesting otherwise) there is no actual video material on the second disc.

There is also a double gatefold vinyl edition, also limited, in a gatefold sleeve, with album art fully restored and looking loads better than the original. The inner gatefold has all the lyrics. There are special printed inner bags with full sleeve notes, pics and memorabilia.

These editions are available to pre-order from dpas mail order at this location. Release is now set for the last week of February 2009. Once the 2 disc Ltd Edition has gone, the title will revert to a lower priced 1CD regular edition with the album, remixes and a few other items. The old CD version is being deleted.
