is considered by fans and critics as one of the best Deep Purple albums in their entire career. The songs are powerful, joyful and deep. The band is now ageless: in a world too often superficial, Deep Purple are not hiding the years on their back and by showing themselves as they really are they have found a new youth. To celebrate the great success of the album a special Gold Edition is released. Packaged in a luxurious version in Gold (an accidental reference to the unforgettable gold cover “Made in Japan") the album will feature a full extra disc live, recorded during the first leg of the NOW What tour. Over 70 minutes recorded live in Milan, Rome, Gaevle, Majano, Aalborg. The live material is shiny and inspired. It shows a band always trying new solutions for the classic songs, daring and pushing each other. The new songs in the repertoire combine perfectly with the old timeless hits. The CD1 is the studio album NOW What?!
with the inclusion of the Jerry Lee Lewis cover “It'll Be Me" and the rare B-side “First Sign Of Madness" previously only available on digital and on the CD single “Vincent Price".
