Product Description

Few bands are more closely associated with Montreux than Deep Purple and there was simply no other contender when it came to choosing the act to headline the closing night of the 40th Montreux Festival in 2006. The band duly delivered one of their finest live performances, sprinkling songs from their latest album Rapture Of The Deep through a set chock full of their classic tracks. There was even a brand
new song Too Much Fun written especially for the occasion and, of course, a show-stopping performance of Smoke On The Water. / Disc One Live At Montreux 2006:
1) Pictures Of Home 2) Things I Never Said 3) Strange Kind Of Woman
4) Rapture Of The Deep
5) Wrong Man

8) When A Blind Man Cries
9) Lazy
10) Keyboard Solo
11) Space Truckin
12) Highway Star
13) Smoke On The Water
14) Hush

Almost 40 years after the band's original formation, Deep Purple is in fine form in They All Came Down to Montreux. The band's history is intimately connected with the legendary Montreux Jazz Festival (which also includes rock music), so it was only fitting that DP was invited to headline the closing night of the festival's 40th anniversary on July 15, 2006. On disc 1 of this two-disc set, DP's 100-minute Montreux gig is included in its entirety, and even those who prefer the band's earlier "Mark II" lineup (which included previous keyboardist John Lord and guitarist Ritchie Blackmore) will agree that this band can still rock your socks off. By the time keyboardist Don Airey launches a playfully jazzy prologue to the band's biggest hit "Smoke on the Water" (a song inspired by a spectacular fire that occurred while the band was preparing to record Machine Head in Montreux in 1971), DP has the packed Montreux in an arm-waving state of hard-rock bliss.

While it's obvious that lead singer Ian Gillan's voice is not what it used to be (he's obviously struggling with the high notes in "Highway Star"), he still makes it through the set with his vocal cords intact, and he's got stellar support from Airey, bassist Roger Glover, drummer Ian Paice, and guitarist Steve Morse (the latter joined DP in 1994), all delivering the kind of ace musicianship that can only come from years of diligent touring. Morse is especially strong in this concert, while Glover and Paice achieve a flawless symmetry of rhythm. And while this is essentially a "greatest hits" gig, the performance of tracks from DP's 2005 release Rapture of the Deep suggests that this band could be going strong for years to come, if fans don't mind the occasional misstep and a stage full of aging rockers with expanding waistlines. As a bonus feature, 25 minutes of band interviews are also included. Disc 2 features an hour-long gig from London's Hard Rock Café, recorded earlier in 2006. With the exception of two tracks ("I Got Your Number" and "Fireball"), it's a shorter version of the Montreux set-list, more intimate in its club setting, but equally indicative of Deep Purple's impressive longevity. --Jeff Shannon

OK. It's not Deep Purple live 1972, but the band still rocks here. This DVD was filmed and recorded very well. Sound is full and fat, with nice balance between instruments. The camera crew and, later, DVD editors, knew what they were doing. When Glover has a bass solo or even a snazzy bass run, it's caught by the cameras. Same for Morse on guitar, Paice on drums, and Airey on keys/Hammond. Lots of nice closeups of the hands of Morse and Glover (musicians will rejoice!). A camera catches Paice drop a stick over the high-hat early in the set, and Paice, always the pro, quickly grabs another stick from below without missing a beat. Airey sounds good on keys. Long-time DP fans will probalby wish it was Jon Lord and Ritchie Blackmore in the band still, but the current DP still is a great band. Ian Gillan, who looks mysteriously more and more like actor Patrick Duffy these days, is in pretty good voice. He also has fun, moving from one side of the stage to the other, and all around. The guys look like they're having a really good time. Glover makes a few "rock guitar faces" without ever slipping into cheesy territory. Makes me want to go see them this summer in St.Louis, even though I'm broke. Ha.

The older classics are always favorites, but "Wrong Man" on this DVD rocks. It's a great version and makes me appreciate Deep Purple's recent work, too. Same for "Rapture of the Deep"'s title cut, also heard and seen in this film. Enjoy!

Excellent 2 DVD release, but...for whatever reason, "Perfect Strangers" is omitted from the Montreux set! The band played it, but it's not on the DVD or the companion CD release. Why this happened is a mystery to me. It's a pleasant surprise to have the London Hard Rock Cafe set included here. A few of the tracks were issued on the Rapture of the Deep Special Edition CD, but I didn't realize the show had been filmed. Well worth the buy, and in my opinion, a better one than Montreux 1996, which was a bit of a truncated performance (11 songs, barely an hour and twenty).

Best live jam band ever. I must have 9 or 10 live versions of "Smoke On the Water" on DVD. Every live performance is a little different and has a charm of it's own. I love em all.

Now I must say, I held back on buying this one. Well I held off on Perihelion too, but I just had to get Jon Lord's last performance on DVD. Now, he is gone? Another loss like Blackmore? OK, I bit and ordered "They All Came Down to Montreux". Don Airey is one hell of a keyboard player, maybe not up to Lord's standard, but who is? Ian Gillan is getting a little long-on-the-tooth, but the old fart can still carry a tune pretty dang good. Hey, these guy's are about my age, so I grew up with DP - got "Hush" on a 45. Speaking of "Hush". They did the BEST "Hush" version on this DVD I've heard.

It's taking them a little longer to warm up these days, but by the time they get to "When A Blind Man Cries" the groove sets in. The two guest stars they brought in towards the end of the set were awesome.

The bonus DVD, well another hour of DP live. I can't argue with that. So, what your getting is about (3) hours of DP in concert in total. Sweet.

The quality is outstanding. I didn't get the HD-DVD version, but the standard DVD is pretty close to HD standards. really!

If you like DP, they got a bunch of great DVD's for sale. They are getting on with age so if that's a problem for you, buy some of their earlier stuff first. Then when you still want that DP fix, get this one too. Add it to your collection, you will play it many times over in the future.

I have been a Deep Purple fan for over 25 years and own many records, cds and dvds of them in concert. This particular dvd is one of their best period. Whenever Deep Purple plays at Montreux, it is bound to be a special event, and this show lives up to any expectation anyone could have. The band is tight w/ all their arrengments yet loose enough that they can improvise on some of their most known and popular songs and maintain the essence of what Deep Purple has always been. Steve Morse's guitar playing is immpecable, presice and fluid. Don Airey had some big shoes to fill w/ the departure of Jon Lord, but he shows on this dvd that he is on par w/ any keybord player in the history of rock music (as well as classical and jazz). Ian Gillan's legendary voice still rocks like it did when he first sang about the Montreux Jazz Festival back in '71. Ian Pace and Roger Glover show us why they still are one of the best drum and bass combos ever. In short, if you are a Deep Purple fan you will like this dvd. After all, can the 40th Anniversay of the Montreux Jass Festival get any better then Deep Purple headlining it?

I am a fan of most of the various incarnations of Deep Purple, and while I didn't rush to buy this DVD, I'm glad I finally picked it up. "Deep Purple Live at Montreux 2006" comes in a two DVD format with one complete concert, one abridged club set, and lots of interviews that are fascinating. I must admit that while it's wonderful to see them at the Montreux Jazz Festival, this is not among the very best concerts from an audio perspective I have ever heard. At some points the sound mix is strange and instruments that are normally front and center in certain passages are buried far back in the mix: this is most noticeable with Don Airey's keyboard parts in a few places, while the worst case is Morse's guitar being totally buried under Roger Glover's bass on "Black Night." It is also true that Ian Gillan's voice is not what it used to be, as he struggles to reach some high notes and his timing is off a in a couple of instances (perhaps most notably during "Smoke on the Water".) I don't really think of that as a huge deficit as the alternative of him not singing and the band not touring would be a much worse option. Oddly, I saw them live last year and I thought his voice sounded much better then than on this DVD, so perhaps he just didn't have a great night when this was recorded (or maybe I just like them with the orchestra better.)

The show is a standard set list from the era, with notable variations for the festival: I particularly enjoyed the jazz introduction to "Smoke on the Water" and Gillan's introduction ("it was written just down the road....") Standouts were the very extended Morse demo "The Well-Dressed Guitar" which is off the charts here, and the rousing version of "Hush," which is always a crowd pleaser.
