DEEP PURPLE drummer Ian Paice said: "These albums were recorded in the 'analog age,' that is before digital CDs. We went from recording tape to master cutting room to pressing plant, all of these mechanical processes, and its right that the listener should have the choice to listen to them via another mechanical process. By placing a needle on an 'album' on a turntable."

All albums will be released on September 7.
