They crash through this set with enthusiasm and panache, and even the very weird counterpoint on No One Came just somehow adds to the sheer fun of it all. Paicey is just loving working with Steve, and eveyone is jumping for joy.
Simon Robinson. Some may feel that "Total Abandon" is better but it doesn't seem to be available as a CD any more, at least not in the US. The mastering on this cd has a glorious crisp sound. Gillan hits every note, including the high note in the second No One Came - Deep Purple - Live At Montreux 1996 of "Woman from Tokyo", and he hits it good!
Jon Lord is having a great night, very tight and fearless. Steve Morse is, again, very tight and fearless. Glover and Paice are clearly enjoying themselves as they swing through this thunderous set. The DVD should be equally great. Both the and songs are great. No cringing on these performances at all. Please do yourself a favour and plug this in, light up a cigar and let the speakers shake your house in glorious Purple fashion. We caught the band right at the start of the tour and that was good enough, but six months down the line they have begun to really gel, breathing new life into the oldies and honing the Purpendicular material.
The filming is Light My Fire - The Doors - The Doors pretty typical TV quality shoot; not too imaginative but it does the job, though the light levels are a bit low at times.
The director gets the hang of it later so the pictures begin to match the vision and there are some great close-ups of No One Came - Deep Purple - Live At Montreux 1996 and a wonderful sequence of Lord and Morse from behind the stage duelling away in Speed King.
It's a shame this is a shortened set it runs for an hour and a quarterbut it's much more enjoyable Моя болезнь… - Максим Ляшко - Ясны солнышки the Polish set issued last year as Gillan is in fine form. We also get to see Claude Nobs introduced right at the end. The bonus tracks from are flatter musically, but the film quality is Ripa MuhFucka Night - Rhymageddon - Horsepower Plus Handling lot sharper and clearer.
There seem to be more of them than we were originally led to believe too. The tour has been fondly recomembered sic at DPAS towers for a decade, and this proves we weren't just imagining it all. The only pisser is that they didn't play a full set and that old grumpy-pants refused to use my sleeve notes! CD "The CD is a 24 carat five star must-have! DVD "This DVD release is a bit of a mixed bag, but on the whole it's one I've enjoyed, mainly for the sheer clobbering power of the '96 set.
