GILLAN / FUTURE SHOCK
Ltd Ed vinyl re-release : August 2012
We’ve already mentioned this in a DTB update, but having just seen a sample of the new Gillan / Future Shock limited edition vinyl, thought I should let people know how stunning it looks. I must admit we were a bit sceptical about the idea when it was first announced, but having taken the protective tissue paper off the matt /gloss cover, the end result does look amazing. The whole release is done like a 12″ hardback book, with all the lyrics, images, photos and art from the original. The albums themselves are housed in black holders within the book, each in a special bag with sleeve notes detailing the story of the album. The sound is great too, the discs being pressed at 45 rpm for extra clarity. The vinyl has been mastered off original quarter inch production tapes (I know this for certain as they had to borrow side two from our archive!). The manufacturers have really worked hard on this and it does put some other vinyl pressings in the shade. This edition is limited to just 1,000 copies and we would suggest any vinyl collectors grab it quick. It is also available as a regular gatefold edition though I suspect most fans will still have their original…
