Deep Purple frontman Ian Gillan will release The Vinyl Collection 1979-1982, from his self titled band, on September 23rd.

The box set from the Deep Purple frontman contains five albums across seven LPs, including 1979’s Mr. Universe, 1980’s Glory Road on 2LP with bonus disc For Gillan Fans Only, 1981’s Future Shock, 1981’s Double Trouble on 2LP and 1982’s Magic.

Gillan tells TeamRock, “My abiding memories from that time are the great musicians that came and went, fun times at Kingsway Recorders – my studio in London – fantastic tours and audiences, and wonderful support from Virgin Records. But, most of all, the beginnings of a long relationship with my incredible manager, Phil Canfield.”

He adds, “It’s a wonderful thing, vinyl. Best held in two hands and and treated with respect, as you place it carefully upon the turntable. You just bought something significant, not easily disposable. Read the lyrics and enjoy the artwork, while you are in the groove. No computers involved in the making of this music – enjoy.”

Gillan’s The Vinyl Collection 1979-1982 can be pre-ordered at Amazon UK.
