GILLAN LIVE: TRIPLE TROUBLE [3 CD]

  • Following Edsel’s huge success with its re-issue of Gillan’s classic albums from 1979 to 1982, the label is proud to issue this 3CD live set, authorised by Ian Gillan himself, representing both line-ups. Gillan’s live performances were always electrifying, and this release is great evidence!

  • Disc One was recorded at London’s legendary Rainbow Theatre on 4th March 1981, with Bernie Torme on lead guitar. With the exception of one song, the performance is previously unreleased.

  • Disc Two features the band’s triumphant headlining set at the Reading Festival on 29th August 1981, with Janick Gers on lead guitar. Only half of the songs have previously been available, on the 1981 release “Double Trouble”.

  • Disc Three features exciting extras: five songs recorded in April 1982 for BBC Radio 1’s “Friday Rock Show” and five songs from a concert in Nottingham in March 1981. None of these tracks have been officially released before.

  • The booklet will feature many photos and ephemera from two fans’ personal collections.
