3.0 out of 5 stars desventajas de un "bootleg oficial" June 10, 2002
.... o como dice el refrán, "sobre aviso no hay engaño".
En la portada de este dvd se resalta el aviso "Official Bootleg", si quieres escuchar una afortunada e impecable lista de canciones de Deep Purple esta grabación remasterizada de un formato analogo cumple su cometido.
El problema reside en lo poco profesional de la producción y esto abarca calidad de video, edición, continuidad y una fotografia que a veces dan ganas de llorar.
Siempre lleva riesgos comprar un bootleg, la adquisición de este producto no es para iniciados ni para personas exigentes en calidad de video, "Bombay Calling" es para fanaticos que quieren tener la coleccion completa de Deep Purple en dvd.

4.0 out of 5 stars When A Blind Man Cries May 1, 2001
This DVD has variating quality, due to the tape (recorded from the concert) used to create the DVD. This however is not a problem, because the important songs has very good quality (Child In Time). Most of the best songs are included. I especially like The song "When A Blind Man Cries", because Steve Morse really gets the guitar solo right. It will change your mood, that's how beautiful the solo is.

4.0 out of 5 stars Transitional concert August 11, 2001
A good show. It was transitional - this was before their Purpendicular album was finished, and after the Battle Rages On tour. Some of the songs from the Battle tour were still being played : Battle Rages On, Anya, Child in Time, When a Blind Man Cries, etc. There is one song from the upcoming album - 'Purpendicular Waltz', but in a semi-complete form. So, it has elements of their prior tour, and elements of their forthcoming one. They don't play 'Child' or 'Anya' much anymore, so to hear those with Steve Morse is pretty cool.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great performance by DP! June 6, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Deep Purple - New, Live and Rare: A great DVD that covers DP from 1984 to 2003.

Deep Purple: Come Hell or High Water: I've had trouble with this one due to Blackmore acting up on stage.

Deep Purple Live in Australia 1999 - Total Abandon (2000): One of my favorite DVD concerts. Period!

Deep Purple - Live at Montreux 1996 (2006): Get Total Abandon 1st, if you want MORE DP after that, buy this one. Very good flim quality and another great DP concert.

Bombay Calling (2000): I was unsure about buying this one due to the (bootleg) film quality of this one. It don't matter - it's still a great concert & filmed in HD. Sure, the lighting is a little low at times, but hey, it's a live act. If you like Total Adandon & Montreux 1996 & still need your DP fix, get this one too. I've watched it a couple of times now & Bombay has grown on me. The live version of "Smoke on The Water" is simply stunning. I'm giving it 5 stars due to the fact that I plan on watching this one many times. This concert will be like an old friend to me.

DP does a lot of the same concert songs on their DVD's, but every live version sounds fresh & new to me. These guy's are one of the greatest rock groups ever in my book.

Now if DP would just release their 1996 Moscow concert........

3.0 out of 5 stars Inferior quality April 5, 2005
Blackmore's gone and Morse is in. What do you expect from the guys? A blast? No. Purple is back doing their "The Battle Rages on" tour setlist with a few new songs completing the set. The video started with the interview with the band and suddenly "Fireball" just started while Morse is talking. The sound is thin and very low in mix. You'll see Morse still adjusting with the band and he failed, most notably "Child in Time" and "Anya". The camera shots were poorly executed! Missing a lot of solos from Jon Lord. It's kind of pricy for this kind of DVD (Well this DVD was re-produced this year and the Korean concert was included and they beefed up the sound from a mere 2 ch stereo to 5.1 dolby surrounds). Get the Total Abandon DVD if you're looking for a great viewing pleasure.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent work as usual January 21, 2001
Format:VHS Tape
This is an excellent work from DP. Everybody is great, great , great. Steve Morse replaced Ritchie successfuly. I always enjoyed DP and they are the only band that I still listen to since 1984 (I was 18), especially these days when you cannot find ANY good hard rock around you. The only thing that was really really bad that ruined my joy, and it is not DP fault, was that the people from India who were doing the Video recording. They were the wosrt ever. They where showing the audiance when they should have shown Lord for example. They showed Glover when the supposed to show Morse and so on. More of the good work DP. Bravo
