BBC Sessions 68/70

2011 UK limited edition MULTI-FORMAT box set comprising 2xLPs and 2xCDs documenting Deep Purple’s surviving BBC Session recordings for the first time.

Cutting their first session even before their debut single Hush was released in the summer of ’68, the band were frequent visitors to the BBC studios over the next two years. Several of the versions here have never been issued before, others were never issued or recorded anywhere else, with material ranging from energetic guitar heavy versions of early tracks through to a blistering set from the monumental ‘In Rock’ album.

Each part is housed in its own sleeve complete with extensive session-ography booklet. Contained within a deluxe 12-inch square picture box, factory sealed since new!LP & CD One – Mk 1 1968-1969:
