Deep Purple – 30: Very Best Of

Deep Purple – 30: Very Best Of

Right to DEEP PURPLEs 30th anniversary, the „30 : very best of“ birthday compilation hits the stores. (Anyone took the time to count how many collections are already out there??? :)

Instead of featuring just several tracks taken from two or three albums, this one tries to give a view over 30 years of DEEP PURPLE in rock. Of course there are dozens of tracks that should be featured on such a compilation – and I’m also sure if you tell ten fans to write down the tracks that should be included in such a release, ten different tracklists will come out – because everyone has his own favorites that stand for his personal meaning of DEEP PURPLE – but as CD space is limited, you have to make a selection.

Deep Purple live in Karlsruhe 1998-06-17

Just coming back from the show in Karlsruhe….

Opener were German metal band Rage together with a „chamber version“ of the Lingua Mortis orchestra (only 3 people of normally 22). Bad thing was these people  were way too low in the mix and Rage played only songs from their actual CD „XIII“ and the Rolling Stones cover „Paint It Black“…

Purple entered the stage at about 21:20 and played for less than two hours.

Deep Purple – Made In Japan 25th Anniversary

Deep Purple – Made In Japan 25th Anniversary

Tataaaaaa, here it is: The 25th anniversary release of one of the best live recordings of all times – DEEP PURPLEs „Made In Japan“.

I wasn’t too sure what to expect: „In Rock 25“ set a level that seemed impossible to top for further releases, and „Fireball 25“ finally showed me how brilliant the „Fireball“-recording really was. First problems IMHO came up with „Machine Head 25“ – the anniversary release of the DEEP PURPLE „hit album“ and mega seller – it was nice to get it in excellent sound and also to get the different mixes; but I was missing the things that made „In Rock 25“ and „Fireball 25“ so exciting – all that stuff that has never seen the light of being published over the years.

Deep Purple / Pan Ram tour 1996

deepPur.ple in Ulm (12/03 – first) and Hanau (30/03 – last gig in Germany) or „Who needs Ritchie Blackmore ???“

As I was just there to enjoy the music, I’ve made no notes and therefore here are only a few thoughts about both gigs:

the venue:

Both venues about the same size. No controls of the audience in Ulm, each one was searched in Hanau.

Deep Purple – The Battle Rages On

Deep Purple – The Battle Rages On

HAPPY BIRTHDAY – DEEP PURPLE! Pnnktlich zum 25 jährigen Bandjubiläum hat Joe Lynn Turner die Koffer vor die Tür gestellt und sich an den besten Sänger erinnert, der bei DEEP PURPLE jemals das Mikro in der Hand hielt. Dieser ließ sich dann auch (glücklicherweise) nicht lange bitten und so kehrte Ian Gillan – zumindest vorläufig – wieder ans Mikro zurück.

Daß sich der Sängerwechsel gelohnt hat, müßte dann spätestens beim Erscheinen der Vorab-Single „Anya“ auch dem letzten klar geworden sein.
