Editorial Reviews

Filmed on the closing night of this year's Montreux Festival on July 16, this concert features Deep Purple playing their classic hits with the accompaniment of a full contemporary orchestra conducted by Stephen BK Bentley-Klein. The orchestrated arrangements give an added depth and range to the familiar songs and the band, who are clearly enjoying the experience, deliver one of their finest performances. With a career stretching back into the late sixties and global album sales in excess of 100 million, Deep Purple need no introduction. They continue to record and perform around the world on an ongoing basis and remain of the finest hard rock bands on the planet as this live Blu-ray clearly shows. / Bonus Features: Deep Purple interviewed in depth in Montreux / Line-up: Ian Gillan (vocals); Ian Paice (drums); Roger Glover (bass); Steve Morse (guitar); Don Airey (keyboards) / TRACK LISTING:

Wow...40 years ago DP unleashed Fireball upon the masses and in the next coming months they would release their masterpiece Machine Head. Can't believe it's been 40 years on, and the lads are still going strong. Beautiful picture quality, superb sound quality, masterfully edited, us old timers can't keep up with the fast editting like some of these other concert releases (like the newest Halford live in Japan). The boys are still at the top of their game, especially Gillan, still sounds good, Paice never hits a wrong note, Glover spot on, and Airey was born for the gig. Steve Morse still shreds away, and as far as looks go, he looks like the oldest of the bunch now, but is easily 10 years younger than the rest of the fellas. The orchestra sounds fresh, and doesn't overpower the band or the music. Really a nice compliment. A natural setting. Pick this up on blu ray if you can, and enjoy the show.

This is an excellent concert! The song selection is really good and the audio quality is strong and clear. The video quality is very crisp and clear, A great Blu-Ray disc.. I have purchased many Deep Purple video's and this is one of their better concerts. The band look like they are having a good time and playing greatly together, the orchestra seems to enjoy what they are doing also. The interview segments are a nice addition to the concert. Highly recommended to fans of Deep Purple.

I bought the concert dvd despite criticism of Gillan's voice. When you play the opening tune, however, you'll understand that the criticism is warranted - unfortunately. I respect Gillan and all those his age that still love to perform and want to soldier on - especially considering Deep Purple remains a popular touring band. But the man is 66 years old. I didn't buy this expecting a knock out vocal performance but I naively thought the critics are too tough and expect to much. Well, maybe they still are but the vocals were even weaker than I expected. Very thin but clearly he's trying. The band is obviously great but its going to be hard to play this repeatedly when the vocals borderline on bothersome. If you want a satisfying Gillian performance, where everyone is firing on all cylinders, check out DP's 1996 Montreux dvd instead.

I am a long-time Deep Purple fan. I saw them in the Astrodome in Houston in 1974. When I heard what Ian Gillan sounded like on the first song (Highway Star) on this disk, I almost got up and took the disk out, never to be played again. Fortunately, I continued watching, and it got much better. Yes, Gillan's voice is gone, but most of the time it does not negatively affect the overall sound. Steve Morse sounds great on these songs, and there are a lot of excellent jams throughout. The integration of the orchestra with the band is very well done. If you are a Deep Purple fan, you will enjoy this (just skip over the first song.)

As a longtime Deep Purple fan, I was wondering what the current lineup would be like with an orchestra when I went to see them during this 2011 tour: I was fortunate enough to have front row seats between Ian and Steve in Minneapolis, and the set list was essentially identical to this DVD. The list of drawbacks here is brief: Ian Gillan's vocal range is definitely more limited than it was 40 years ago, but he still does a great job and can hit nearly all the notes except the highest of the highs; his performance is certainly spirited and I think he's better on the 2011 Montreux show DVD than on the recording from the 2006 show. Having said that, there's no other vocalist that would make this material sound better, and I am thrilled he and the band are still recording and touring.

It turns out that I adore the band with the orchestra, and think that it adds amazingly to the depth of the performance. The arrangements were very smart with conductor Stephen Bentley-Klein providing perfect accents and accompaniment to these rock standards. Musicianship is first rate, with Don Airey doing well living in Lord's shadow, Ian Paice never missing a beat, Roger Glover being the consummate bassist, and Steve Morse providing his unique takes on the material and smoking through the set (I particularly loved the Billy Gibbons-inspired solo on "Black Night," though I think "Hush was better when I saw them in Minneapolis.) It's a given that the music is great (a particular highlight is "No One Came") but the DVD also has quite extended interviews that add considerable value for true fans. I was particularly intrigued by Paice's interview, especially his comments on "No One Came" (and his amusing comments about why he dislikes Facebook.
