Yeah the 8 mm footage seems interesting. As well as the footage of the band landing with the Starship. Didn't they go by helicopter to the Cali Jam?

...I think they entered limos after they got out of Starship. I think it was Black Sabbath that entered the festival area by helicopter...I could be wrong though...perhaps Big Daddy could answer this?

Did anyone here in the US recently get an email from dpas saying basically...that it will be shipped starting Nov. 21st....if you still want the DVD, you have to reorder it?

I got that email several days ago but haven't acted on it yet. Not sure if it's coming or not

Have not been able to acquire the DVD yet. Last night, though, I did get Blackmore's Night's new DVD. I will not give a full review, but will say one thing...buy it !!! Sat mesmerized for two hours at 1:00 AM watching and listening. Candice can sing and Blackmore is, well, Blackmore.
It is just so hard to find anything new worth listening to anymore, and with Fused and Blackmore I am quite content over 2005s new releases

Cool the Glenn-show


It's always been a Glenn-show, I thought, simply because of the white suit, the hair and the shoes (and the singing and playing too, of course )

I have ordered mine via cd-wow, awaiting delivery any day now.... and reading through al your comments, i really can't wait!!!

Cheers,
Christian

Larry, I have a multi-region DVD player just for this very reason. It can play any region DVD without a problem. You can pick them up cheap (as low as $99) - I got mine from this place - http://www.220-electronics.com/

mini revue

got my copy 2 days after release (www.powerplaydirect.com 9.99 incl postage) and played it thru a couple of times plus the bonus stuff. what is interesting is what was edited out from the original BBC video i bought all those years ago. All the references between songs about "where's the sunset" and "its going dark at last" etc are now there and show the bands displeasure about being forced on early. they flew by chopper to the show arriving at 6.30 expecting to play at 7.30 but where told to go straight on! The rest im sure you all know. the booklet gives quite a bit of info.

Glenn does get a lot of footage in a great version of Lay Down Stay Down. also in the alternate takes.

When my wife (who hadnt seen the video) saw Glenn her first comment was "LOOK AT GLENNS HAIR ". then "LOOK AT HIS SUIT , HIS SHOES " then the usual "i love his voice" when he first lets rip in Burn

All in all this is a great early Christmas present and you ALL MUST BUY IT!

Here is a cheaper, easy solution to the region code problem for those of you who have a DVD burner.... I'm assuming that there isn't enough new footage to make compression an audio quality issue. (I haven't recieved my copy yet) This software beats the new Sony copy protection too...

Larry- my DVD player is region free so come on over!

Icon27 Buy It Now!!

Wow, talk about a funky rock'n'roller

This thing sounds absolutely awesome what with the 5.0 Surround Sound, it's almost like hearing a whole different show - lots of little nuances that you hadn't been able to hear before. The extra camera angles also add to this effect. The archive footage is cool to have, but as is stated in the notes, not the greatest quality, but certainly a nice to have. The addition of a commentary option also gives lots of extra information that you may or may not have known about before, all done with a good sense of humour!

GLENN certainly gets some extra time which is great to see and hear! The previously missing Lay Down, Stay Down is just stupendous! Doesn't get any better than this!

The only disappointment is the picture quality, which I would expect of the archive footage, but the gig itself was a surprise. The old VHS we all have looks better, not quite as dated with a cleaner overall quality to it. BUT, having said that, with the stereo cranked to 11 and Dolby Digital surround selected, more than makes up for it.

So overall, a must have purchase and if you get it from dpas - a reproduction poster, ticket stub and backstage passes are all thrown in, which is a nice touch.

Get it while it's hot

DVD Picture quality issue

I heard about the poor picture issue on the newly released DVD. I was wondering if the cause could be because the concert was video taped using the NTSC system and then edited abroad on a PAL editing suite? Possibly the conversion from NTSC to PAL would cause a downgrade in picture quality. I have the NTSC Japanese laserdisc of the jam and the picture quality is sharp. Once I get the DVD I will have to compare the two discs.

A review from February's issue of Classic Rock:

Vintage Burn era gig from Coverdale and co.
Ardent Purple followers will forever be in conflict as to which of the band's numerous line-ups exemplified their sound, and for all Ian Gillan's unquestionable vocal abilities, this stunning live performance makes a sturdy case for this 1974, Coverdale-fronted Mk III version of the band.

Recorded at the California Jam, the renditions of Burn and the ubiquitous Smoke On The Water are passionate and capture the raw vigour that made the band such a startling proposition live. Yet it's the impulsive assault by a furious Ritchie Blackmore on a TV camera, during the Space Truckin' finale, that makes for jaw-dropping viewing and displays a spontaneity that bands like The Darkness would do well to adopt. 8/10

Rich Wilson

... and there'll be an article on Blackmore's Night in March's issue.
