The reissues will be begin January 29, when Live In Paris 1975 is released as a double CD. The album has been digitally remixed and re-mastered from the original multi-track recordings.

Blackmore, vocalist David Coverdale, bassist/vocalist Glenn Hughes, keyboardist Jon Lord and drummer Ian Paice roared on classics like “Burn,” “Stormbringer,” “Highway Star,” “Space Truckin’” and "Smoke On The Water.”

The new studio album and Live In Paris 1975 will be released via Eagle Rock Entertainment.
