Pheonix Rising MK4 Bonus material

I will welcome this dvd into my collection.Liked the You Tube CTTB track by track album breakdown with GH & JL. Is Martin Birch interviewed?

Would have been great if David Coverdale had gone on camera ditto Paicey.I am presuming Johnny Bolin & Karen Ulibarri didn't get infront of the camera? Minor quibbles aside,I can't wait!

Regarding the audio the incomplete version of 'Coming Home' could/should have been used somehow. Glazosifo

I got my delivery on saturday, it is fantastic material, though there is certainly a dark shadow overhelming all to see. I will go on studying that stuff later on.
I don't agree fully with that Lordy tells: "CTTB was an amazing rockalbum with great moments, but it wasn't a real Deep Purple album", so like this he said.
Ok when he's feeling this way he might be right for himself.
And it was a bonehard time for the band, no question!
But: He was the one who builded that bridge between Classik and Rock in the sixties, he is the God of Hammond Organ who accepts no musical limits, his words: "music with Freedom, Joy, Emotion"
And that is really what CTTB is. It might not be a typical Purple album, but i would say it is a sparkling bright DP album.
OK Ritchie was not playing on it, and for me Ritchie Blackmore was and is always my absolutly favorite Guitarist, no question
But : Purpendicular was a fantastic rockalbum, which i played many times,
and i acceptet that new countryvibe, but that one sounded much less like Deep Purple for me.
OK enjoy the summer, and i'm waiting for BCC 2!!

Well, don't forget that those Purple fans who grew up with MK2, expected the typical Purple sound with each new album. I can assure you that my face grew quite long when I put that record on the player the first time when it came out. Whatever I had expected from the new line-up - not this funky stuff! I only liked the album more because of the voices of DC and Glenn and not because of the music. It took me a long time to adjust to that. That's why the title is so appropriate - "Come Taste the Band". And the reviews weren't so positive either at that time.
Although CTTB is not among my fav 3 albums, I do like it and I see it with different eyes today.
The real Purple sound however only returned with "Perfect Strangers". And I doubt very much that the reunion would have been so successful if they had carried on in the MK4 style! Apart from that, it's not Gillan's singing style.
So I fully agree to what Lordy said!

lioness, now let me tell you what i've found on CTTB also very important for me.
Lordy did such a unbeatable great work on CTTB.
At first the hammond sound on Lady Luck, right between the eyes!
Remarkable the things he did on "Love Child", "This time around",
"You keep on moving"! One of my favorite hammondsolos from Jon Lord, Purple at its best!
Agree with you that "Perfect Strangers" is a typical DP sound, perhaps the most typical song after "Smoke on the water", and i love it.
Well, my favorite Purple is mkIII, although my favorite DP song is
"You Keep on moving", long time it was "Child in Time" from "In Rock".

regards
Sigurd

Here's my review at Get Ready to Rock It's a cracker! Buy buy buy!

A small parochial complaint if I may. Having been an eye witness at the now notorious last concert in Liverpool back in March 1976, I was mildly amused to hear Jon Lord describe this 2,000 seater theatre as 'an old cinema' in which he has since played around half a dozen times with PAL, Whitesnake and Purple to my knowledge.

I guess this sums up the difficulties of relying on biased personal testaments which, even for the main players, can be flawed as the years roll on. Having been Glenn's PR man from 2003 to the BCC record company tie in, I need to confess my own bias too, but rest assured that I am judging this on VFM. In essence why pay good money to hear an old story? In any case, we need to summarise what's on offer here before we get into those knotty issues of Purple's past.

Drew Thompson (no relation) has put together an extremely comprehensive package of goodies for us. Avoiding the temptation to see the ill fated Mark IV line up in isolation, he has instead put that line up into context of what had gone before with some surprising and welcome additions from Mark Two and Three too.

When I received my review copy I went straight for one of the booklets - at which point my PR hat went straight on and I was fascinated to discover some never before seen press cuttings from now defunct tomes such as ‘Sounds and other industry mags. Headlines like ‘Tommy Bolin Dies' still sends shivers through my spine.

Musically and visually, we get a DVD packed with interviews and unseen footage from the horrendous Jakarta experience, which is probably the most depressing and distressing set of circumstances that I have ever read about in my trawl around the darker reaches of rock history. This wasn't Iommi ****ting in a cheese dip. This was murder. This was conspiracy. These were Guns N' Dobermans. Knocks Metallica into a cocked hat then.

On the CD we can hear some of the better recordings than what the record company posthumously and stupidly packaged as the ‘Last Concert in Japan.' More aptly titled in my view as No Rest for the Wicked. Tommy Bolin finally gets his ample testament in Purple as a cracking young guitarist tragically taken from us and not the heroine addict he is often cruelly dismissed as. I would like to thank the publishers personally for this and shake them by the hand.

Those personal recollections by Hughes and Lord tell the same story from naturally different perspectives. Erudite and philosophical as usual, Glenn Hughes doesn't try to cover up for his addictions and discusses in detail the misconceptions people have about him and his motives c.75/76. In addition he is at pains to stress some of the undoubted musical achievements of that era too.

Songs which feature on the CD like ‘Getting Tighter,' the autobiographical ‘This Time Around' and the haunting ‘You Keep on Moving' from CTTB, the skilful adaptations of the Mark Two material for the earlier live shows. I had to smile at the reference to the final mix of ‘Coming Home' sounding like 'the seven dwarfs', as it was recorded after Glenn had been carted off for treatment. The impressions of late and sadly lamented Tony Edwards, who was clearly Purple's Denis Eaton-Hog, were priceless.

In the other band member interview, Lord pays CTTB a guarded compliment and perhaps a more rounded worldly view about the situation Purple had founded itself in. He also recalls with some affection the earlier live shows and the excitement resulting from the addition of Tommy Bolin. Lord, as always, adopts the cautious stance like a trusted, wise uncle with a very large extended family to placate.

Hughes is in a combative mood to defend his roots either and confesses not to liking the Mark Two version (of whom footage is shown) which catapulted Deep Purple to the dizzy heights of No.1. Incidentally, in another recent interview with my GRTR colleague Mark Taylor he says that Ritchie Blackmore only had one song for ‘Stormbringer' and yet Glenn Hughes still gets part of the blame for 'funking up' Deep Purple. What was he to do? Suddenly drop his roots and write a suite of Highway Stars? I think not. Bias alert.

The main full concert Mark IV footage has been doing the rounds of the t'internet for around five years now as a freebie but like any virus laden illegal download, it has no context. What Drew Thompson and associates have done is to add bells and whistles to all the accompanying footage so that we get a true sense of what it was like to be in one of the biggest selling bands in the world.

We learn of the exhilaration of starting a new era at Wakiki Beach and the abject despair only a few months later in Liverpool when Glenn Hughes threw his bass up in the air Blackmore style and let the feedback merge with Jon Lord's abandoned overdriven Hammond.

Overdriven indeed.

Critics might snipe at the lack of new interviews with Coverdale and Paice, but we all know that one has an allegiance to the current line up and the other has been consistent over the years in his criticism of reissues, retellings and compilations. Democracy in action. Fair enough.

My preconceptions were that only Purple anoraks like me would have been interested in this package, but it's for anyone who is even vaguely interested in rock heritage, whatever t shirts they prefer to wear.

A revelation in G.

Deep Purple - Phoenix Rising

I picked up the new DVD yesterday, and sat down to watch it this afternoon. Halfway through it, I decided that the title is not really accurate. It should be called something like Phoenix Rising: The Resurrection & Fall of Deep Purple, Mk III & IV. The focus of the documentary is split between Mk III and Mk IV, beginning just prior to the demise of Mk II, which featured Ian Gillan and Roger Glover.

The interview segments with Jon Lord and Glenn Hughes are quite candid, and they're interspersed between some compelling archival footage both familiar and unfamiliar to this viewer. One thing I noticed about Glenn's interviews is that he comes across with a genuine humility which often takes a backseat in promotional interviews for BCC or solo projects. Glenn comes across here as a real guy, not a rock star. Jon Lord makes some interesting assertions about his dwindling faith in the band starting around the time of Stormbringer, even going so far as to suggest that he should have left the band when Ritchie Blackmore did. I wish Ian Paice had been involved in the documentary in some way, as he and Jon Lord were together in Paice-Ashton-Lord and Whitesnake. Even though Paice has remained active in the reunited Gillan lineup of Purple, surely he could have spoken for a few minutes on-camera about that earlier era of the band. Same with Coverdale - even though he prefers to look forward rather than dwell on the past, it might have behooved him to contribute at least a brief statement to represent his thoughts on the band he was such an integral part of. Instead, the only acknowledgment of Coverdale's position is the disclaimer that the opinions expressed by Hughes and Lord do not reflect those of Coverdale.

In the end it's a fascinating documentary, not without its flaws, but frankly part of me is pleasantly surprised it was given a release at all. There are some nice bonus features and two fairly lengthy booklets included. Well worth the purchase price, if you ask me.

And although Glenn is someone who prefers to always look forward to the next thing, I'm very appreciative that he pauses now and again to acknowledge his past - whether with remasters of Stormbringer, Come Taste the Band or this documentary - and share with the rest of us his insights into an era so integral to who he is as an artist today.

FINALLY got 'round to watching my copy of Phoenix Rising....when our cable tv went out last night. More 'rockumentaries' should be this 'candid'!!! Liked the two (what seemed to be) 'opposing' comments from Glenn and Lord.....just wished Coverdale had 'found time' to be involved with this production! Loved the Trapeze 'footage'....wish there was more!! From the 'Trapeze-logo back-drop' (and Glenn's hair and clothing) I'm guessing it was taken from the shows after DP folded.....wish there was MORE!!!

I just watched the dvd this afternoon. There was a lot I didn't know like the terrible experience in Indonesia. Gave me goose pimples listening to Glenn's description of what was happening there

All in all both side of views (Jon's and Glenn's) gave a good review of what was going on with the band members that time. Additional views of Ian Paice and David Coverdale would have made the documentary complete but I'm pretty satisfied with the way it is.

Some people keep asking why drugs are so common in showbiz and music biz and I think Glenn is answering this question pretty well. His looking back to cocaine addiction sound very straight and honest to me. No bulls**t, no false excuses, just describing the way everything happened. Very rare that a documentary can show how close high triumph and high fall can be.
Big thanks to Jon and Glenn to open the closet again and let us participate. Makes me understand even more why Glenn doesn't want to look back in life. What has happenend, happened, and now is now.
