The Famous California Jam Concert Now On Double Vinyl For The First Time!
On April 6, 1974 Deep Purple and Emerson, Lake & Palmer headlined a legendary music festival called California Jam in Ontario, California, aired live on ABC. About 400,000 people attended this record-breaking concert; it employed the loudest amplification system ever used and was the highest-grossing festival ever at the time.
The concert itself is the stuff of legend. For one, guitarist Ritchie Blackmore locked himself in his room and refused to go on stage when the band was scheduled to perform, fearing that the band's light show would be ruined by the daylight outside. When ABC brought in the sheriff to arrest him, Blackmore agreed to play the set, but ended up smashing equipment, destroying an ABC camera with his guitar, and setting off a pyrotechnic device in one of his amps.

NEW & SEALED VINYL
All of our products are brand new and sealed direct from the distributors warehouse. We work with over 15 distributors worldwide and this is exactly how we manage to get such awesome titles at awesome prices and usually ahead of schedule!
It is really important to keep in mind that, although the records are new and sealed they sometimes have 3 or 4 ports of call before they make it to us and then you. The manufacturer, the distributor, customs, our warehouse and then out to you. This does mean that, from time to time, albeit very rarely, some records (particularly the covers) will have slight deficiencies such as small creases, split seams, corner scuffs etc. This is normal and part of the process and are generally considered ‘superficial transit wear’.
We are an online business so our records aren’t getting flicked through and/or tossed around daily. We store our merchandise in a temperature controlled warehouse and always handle and package them with great care to ensure you receive them in as good condition as possible.
Should you choose to shop with us, we ask for your understanding of this process and realise that ‘new and sealed’ doesn’t mean ‘straight off the production line’. If you are an avid collector and are looking for an absolutely pristine copy, please just email us first and we would be more than happy to provide info/photos of the item.
