Surely in Japan

Yeah, they are great pictures.

They are surely in Japan because Glenn has a wappen of Murasaki Logo on his chest.

Murasaki means purple and was the name of a DP copy band in Japan.

Additionally, he is testing Yamaha bass.

I think Tommy did used Yamada on stage but Glenn didn't.

I remember Yamaha did some campaign using Tommy's picutre playing Yamaha after DP hit Japan in 1975.

Wow! That is in great shape - do you own a copy of this handout ?
Any idea about "My Woody Country Van" ? Was that the opening act ?

Blue, I wish I had a copy of this handout. Found it somewhere on my way through cyber space...
Good question - who was the opening act for Purple in those days?
"My Woody Country Van" sounds more like a mobile greengrocer
