Surprise of the night! Even if the official release date is 24th September, all volumes of The Per Gessle Archives are available already on Spotify and on iTunes (maybe not in all countries yet)! Well, all volumes, except The Roxette Demos!, Vol. 5, which is on a LP in the box and is not planned to be released digitally. At least not in the very near future. Probably more streaming sites will have TPGA, but don’t forget to order the real deal, the box itself! Here you have some possibilities to order it: Bengans, Ginza, CDON. If you were an early bird, you probably pre-ordered the box, so you’ll get your signed copy in some days. Remember to check your signed copy thoroughly, since Per wrote a hidden message on one of them. If you are the lucky one, please, post a photo of your box! We are dying of curiosity! 😉

Check TPGA website for more info on the archives!

Update on 3rd October:

As Per shared the info in September, he wrote a special “message” on one of the signed boxes. Today it turned out that the special box has a Leif on it besides Per’s signature. The fan who got it, Álex Usero ordered it from Ginza. Great that it’s a hardcore fan who got this special item. Congrats!

First look at the LP

The LP version of “Travelling” comes without any new pictures. Instead the pics are just bigger.

The demo of “Me & You & Terry & Julie” is rocky and doesn’t point that the final version would have slow verses and a fast chorus. The demo of “Touched by the hand of God” (called Charm school) is also acoustic – Per and an acoustic guitar.

The tracklist order is also different on the vinyl, beginning with side B (track 5 on the Cd) every following ‘track-couple’ is switched with each other, Easy Way Out with It’s Possible, EMSDYWMTCUYW with Perfect Excuse and See Me with It’s Possible (Version 02).

Gessle over Europe LP – the first look

Thanks to Inga (aka Arlanda) & Yvonne from Switzerland!

Buy it:

Bengans.se | Megastore.se | Amazon.de

Edit 1: The album went down to #40 on Swedish charts in its second week. But it isn’t strange as there are almost no physical copies available in Swedish shops…

Amazon.de delays delivery of Gessle Live-LP

A few days ago, Amazon.de sent a mail that the delivery of the Live-LP “Gessle over Europe” is delayed. Actually, the mail says:

We’re still trying to get the article you ordered.

Amazon says that they can’t tell a delivery date at the moment but will send a mail when they get further information. Furthermore the mail says that “we cannot guarantee that the article is still available. Are you still interested in it? If you don’t want to wait any longer you can cancel your order as long as it has not been sent off.

Question is: Will Amazon be able to send the LP? Wait and see..

Live album title revealed

The forthcoming release from European Party Crasher Tour will be called “Gessle over Europe” and it will include live CD plus Stockholm gig on DVD, videos and documentaries as bonus. The double vinyl album will have 3 or 4 extra tracks compared to the CD due to technical reasons. CD/DVD will be released in the end of the summer and the LP edition somewhere in September.

Thanks to tevensso (@ TDR) we also got to know that “Dressed for success” will be from Cologne gig. This means that the city order given by Per (Cologne, London, Copenhagen, Amsterdam, Stockholm#2, Warsaw, Halmstad, Munich) wasn’t accidental at all.
