Phoenix Rising - GT trailer
 
Gettin' Tighter - The Story of MKIV, Deep Purple film trailer - due out in early 2011


Quote:

Set for release in early 2011, this film trailer is an early glimpse of the BLURAY/DVD that documents Deep Purple's turbulent last year before the band split in 1976.

Exclusive new interviews with Glenn Hughes and founder member Jon Lord that open the lid on the problems that beset the band as they toured around the world: Death, drugs and devastation, which led to their ultimate demise.

Archive footage from the tour includes interviews with Tommy Bolin, David Coverdale and Ian Paice, while rare and previously unreleased concert footage includes performances of Purple classics 'Smoke On The Water', 'Burn' and 'Highway Star'.

Live versions of 'Love Child' and 'You Keep On Moving' from the MKIV line-up's one and only album 'Come Taste The Band' also feature as part of the previously unreleased film 'Deep Purple Rises In Japan' - included in full, within this DVD.

Willem, I asked DC what he remembers of the trip to Jakarta, that is his reply:

Quote:

"Ive only heard about the footage, to be honest... no doubt Ill see it soon... tho Im in no rush to re-live the experience... I believe Indonesian tv filmed the unfortunate event... It took place on the 2nd night of the shows... Not something I care to think back on, to be honest... Before the nightmare, we had an incredibly positive time in Jakarta... Unique... but, then... oh, dear... which included the difficulty we had in actually leaving the country... The authorities back then were brutal to us, to say the least... almost not allowing us to leave... "

willem Aug-15-2010 5:15 AM

Wow, that's very iteresting Lioness. Getting it first had by DC himself.
David is a very nice guy. I Like him a lot. I also had the change to have a little chat with him on a few occasions. A real gentleman.

lioness Aug-15-2010 2:48 PM

Yes, Willem, you're right, he is every inch a gentleman. Also very funny, witty, and honest to his fans. Don't know if you ever read this, but go to his site and read under "Extra- Red Candle Caper". He tells the story how he once set fire to a hotel loo ("I **** thee not"). Looool - I chuckled a lot when I read this! :D

"Phoenix Rising"
The Untold Story Of The 1975/76 MKIV World Tour

May 2011

http://www.glennhughes.com/images/dp_pr_0511.jpg

Quote:

The long awaited Deep Purple MkIV DVD titled PHOENIX RISING has now been set for release late May 2011 and will come in both DVD and BluRay formats. The discs will feature the RISES OVER JAPAN concert from December 1975 in Full HD and Surround Sound, as well as the highly anticipated documentary "Gettin' Tighter".

The first DVD to document Deep Purple’s turbulent last year before the band split in 1976. Exclusive new interviews with Glenn Hughes and founder member Jon Lord that open the lid on the problems that beset the band as they toured the world: Death, drugs and devastation, which led to their eventual disbandment. Archive footage from the tour includes interviews with Tommy Bolin, David Coverdale and Ian Paice, while rare and previously unreleased concert footage includes performances of Purple classics ‘Smoke On The Water’, ‘Burn’ and ‘Highway Star’. Live versions of ‘Love Child’ and ‘You Keep On Moving’ from the MKIV line-up’s one and only album ‘Come Taste The Band’ also feature as part of the previously unreleased film ‘Deep Purple Rises In Japan’ - included in full, within this DVD.

Other highlights of this extraordinary and powerful documentary includes film from the start of the tour in New Zealand plus the coup de grace; recently discovered, previously unseen footage from the infamous concerts in Jakarta, Indonesia. The darkest point in Purple’s career that saw the band ripped off to the tune of $750,000, but even worse, the tragic death of one of their crewmembers that resulted in some of Purple’s entourage arrested on suspicion of his murder - something no amount of money could have compensated for. A truly unique film that reveals the excesses of life in the mid-seventies in one of the world’s biggest rock ‘n’ roll bands.

Classic. re-release of old material to charge extra. Really Disgusting...Could have at least released a few tracks from Springfield or Liverpool. This is not the way to treat fans...

glennargentina Apr-02-2011 2:54 PM

Thanks anyway David... your posts always bring news to us. Can you tell us more details on the DVD content to tempt us?

Regards

I pre-ordered the DVD and paid 16 Euros for it including the bonus CD. This is an average price here - so no extra charges.

Well then. For the average price they could have included new tracks. Simple. They wont be releasing any extra cd chargeless. There are plenty of dvds containg unreleased material for less than that price. And for fans who live outside Europe, USA or Australia, even a few euros DO make difference.

glennargentina Apr-04-2011 8:07 AM

Apparently we are getting hawaii footage too!

Yes, this is so typical for the days of flatrate systems. Give people something extra and they will start complaining - it's not enough or it's not good enough. Hey, a bonus is a bonus is a gift - and should be accepted like one. Honestly, if I was on the management of a record company and I read something like this - I would either decide no bonus in the future or let's include some unreleased material - but at extra charges!

You dont understand what I think. If they had not included the bonus cd with old material, the set would cost 11 or 12 euros instead of 16. As I explained earlier, those few euros Dop make diference for some fans. So if I have to pay 16 euros, I prefer to get bonus unreleased material rather thatn a rerelease for the same price.

glennargentina Apr-05-2011 6:51 AM

Davis can you help with this one?

Amazon.de says PR dvd will be PAL zone 2 edition.
Today Amazon uk says PR will be a german import.
DO you know if there will be an american edition in ntsc? what zone?
Will PR be reased worldwide?
Thanks

May 20th, 2011 is the official release date of the "Phoenix Rising" DVD :cool:

Sigurd Apr-12-2011 7:04 AM

the artwork of "Phoenix" is terrific!
 
:D:D
..and it is a must to bring out more from the wonderful mk4 tracks.
Because again and again people, who call themselves DPfans don't know much or nothing about mk4, how they tell me.
Its a shame in the 70ties anf 80ties the media decided to underate and sometimes ignore the mk4 stuff.
Last year i bought the "DP Live At Longbeach" and was totally surprised.
For example the Gettin' Tighter version of it is alienlike(don't know this word exists) hope to get more in may.

regards
Sigurd

MK4 was surprising. For years in the Charlesworth Purple book I had read the bolin chapter and just thought the album must have been awful. Finally got it in 98 and was blown away. Now it's among my most played. It's funny how there are times that Purpendicular and Come Taste are in the top most played albums and they are non Blackmore albums- who is my favorite.
