Biography

Deep Purple survived a seemingly endless series of lineup changes and a dramatic mid-career shift from grandiose progressive rock to ear-shattering heavy metal to emerge as a true institution of the British hard rock community; once credited in the Guinness Book of World Records as the globe's loudest band, their revolving-door roster launched the careers of performers including Ritchie ...

Deep Purple always made a magic performances, this second reunion tour was great, my humble opinion. The set were recorded in Calif irvine meadows, Arizona, Oslo and Verona Italy. The opening set Highway star is incredible, the second song Strange kind of woman with the Jesus christ superstar as a hard rock improvisation. I enjoy it so much! The new version of Hush is also cool, I enjoyed the old version too, but the new one is still the best and much much more powerfull. Ian Gillan tried to sing Child in time one more time, the song he did not perform, since his departure in 1973. But the result is brain melting. I don't understand any reviews below, some fans said that the album is bad. If you like Made in japan & live at the olympia albums, certainly you will love this one too, because the songs are similar, though some songs have changed through Blackmore co improvisations. You got it folks?

I agree and disagree with the other reviews presented here. I disagree that this is a bad album. I do agree that the editing was a little sloppy, but the cool thing about this is that you get to hear the interplay between Ian and the crowd. I am not one for overkill on improvisation ala Jon Lord's five minute keyboard tinkling prior to beginning Knocking At Your Back Door, I would have preferred him go right into the song or the producers of this CD could have made it into a seperate track entitled Jon Lord Solo. For me the song Bad Attitude is the hightlight on this CD. The mix and sound of all the instruments, including Ian's voice, is incredible and sounds as if it was recorded in a studio. I have a feeling this song was recorded at a venue that the other ones on the CD were not. It is a shame because this would have probably improved the sound of the other songs. I am a big fan of the Perfect Strangers CD and bought this for Perfect Strangers and Knocking. Originally I only had the single CD version, but if you are debating whether or not to buy this version, do because Bad Attitude is worth it alone.

I have heard people say bad things about this. I even saw that singer Ian Gillan called "shameful".
For the life of me I can't say why.This was cassette that I absolutely wore out (literally!). My casstte had all the same songs except Bad attitude on it (I wish that was on it, its a good song). Of all the records I purchased the past ten years This one got the most play. I really came to love this version of "Smoke On the Water". At first I wasn't sure because of how different it was, but now its my favorite version. I love Blackmore's solo on it. It was my first exposure to "Dead or Alive" and "Hard Lovin'Woman" as well and I came to really like those two-so much that when I now hear them on the studio album
they don't sound right.
I think the reason Gillan called it shameful was because he,as well as other fans, didn't like the fact that the songs were taken from 3 or 4 different shows, rather than have the whole thing be from one venue like Made In Japan was- but even M.I.J. was culminated from the best of a weekend of performances (2 in Osaka, 1 in Tokyo).
I couldn't care less either way, as long as the music is good, and the music on Nobody's Perfect is great!
If the only Deep Purple you know stops after '73, than this may take a bit time to adjust to, but give it time like I did and you will be very grateful.

Deep Purple's Nobody's Perfect captures some of the highlights of the House of Blue Light tour 1987. The recordings are superb and the performances are outstanding. Hats off to Ian Gillan for maintaining his patented screams,shreiks, and wails. Not bad for a guy in his early 40s. I myself saw the first reunion tour Perfect Strangers 1984-85. The newer tracks including Bad Attitude, Hard Lovin' Woman, and Dead or Alive sound great. The vintage material is always a pleasure to hear. This newly remastered 2CD set also includes tracks not featured on the original CD release. Lazy is one of those tracks. If you are into Deep Purple than I highly recommend this album. Cheers!

Many years ago, Jefferson Airplane put out a compilation album which they entitled THE WORST OF JEFFERSON AIRPLANE. They were being ironic--that album contained all the BEST songs. However, the title of this CD could be changed to THE WORST OF DEEP PURPLE, or DEEP PURPLE: AT THEIR WORST--without a shred of irony.
I'll be brief here, but if you are interested in hearing a horribly truncated (and unfinished) of the classic "Woman From Tokyo," Ian Gillian singing off-key as he does on several songs here (especially on "Highway Star" and the beloved "Smoke On The Water"), the band tripping into a Buddy Holly song (!) in the middle of another song, and in general, long rambling, ruined versions of some of their most classic tunes--then, buy all means buy this CD. But if you're like me, and like to hear a great rock 'n' roll band performing at their best, then you should avoid this CD like the plague.
Who ever thought that this was a good idea, anyway? I mean, anyone who has their mega-classic live album "Made In Japan" knows that Deep Purple can be incredible in concert. Why did they do this to their fans? I guess I'll never know.
The only good thing about this CD is their rollicking version of their all-time classic "Hush" (recorded live in a studio on Long Island, NY). I made sure to transfer this to tape before selling my copy of this CD.
