Editorial Reviews

1984 saw the long-awaited reunion of the classic Deep Purple Mark II line-up of Ritchie Blackmore, Ian Gillan, Roger Glover, Jon Lord and Ian Paice. It was the first time they had been together since 1973. They recorded a brand new studio album, 'Perfect Strangers' and headed out on tour. This show was filmed in Melbourne, Australia and is the only full length concert film of the band at this time. It s a stunning concert with the band in incendiary form. The setlist mixes then new tracks from the 'Perfect Strangers' album with favorites from the early seventies culminating in the brilliant 'Smoke On The Water' finale. This is without doubt one of the finest Deep Purple concerts ever filmed and a must have for their legions of fans.

1) Highway Star 2) Nobody's Home 3) Strange Kind Of Woman 4) A Gypsy s Kiss 5) Perfect Strangers 6) Under The Gun 7) Knocking At Your Back Door 8) Lazy (inc Ian Paice Drum Solo) 9) Child In Time 10) Difficult To Cure 11) Jon Lord Keyboard Solo 12) Space Truckin (in Ritchie Blackmore Guitar Solo) 13) Black Night 14) Speed King 15) Smoke On The Water

Customer Reviews

Excellent sound quality, good video quality and Purple is on fire.
The interaction between Blackmore and Gillan was great..in particular Ritchie actually looked like he was having fun ( yes those were smiles from the man in black).
william rickard
This is the Perfect Stranger tour and they do five songs from the new album.

I may be the first review to have actually watched this DVD. Very difficult to review this product. On one hand you have a band who are trying harder than I have ever seen them try. (And I have seen them many times) The Director and the overall intention in filming this performance are another story. In some ways this has a slight "budget feel," even for 1984. At times it almost appears as though it was filmed for the band only, as there is no crowd featured, no keyboard views ,and no behind the drums footage. During "Child in Time" the Director reacted like a fish seeking a lure, as everytime Gillan played percussion he couldn't resist the shiny bongos! This occurred at a high cost too, as many times Blackmore was just flying on solos. (but he kept cutting to the congas.) (A bit like the Denmark footage from the early 70's at times) Fear not though!!...even with this dynamic there ARE plenty of times when Ritchie is featured during solos! It just could have been "smarter." To be fair this was 1984 and a long way from home ,so perhaps I am being a bit too hard on the Director Camera choices?

This comment is going to upset people but this show was filmed at a time when Ian Gillan still had his voice. Gillan gave it his all and Blackmore reciprocated. It was only later that Gillan's drinking/smoking and all night parties cost him his voice (and subsequently Blackmore's respect. "Come Hell or High Water) I know, I can see the comments coming on how Blackmore did this and did that. For me after seeing the band many times, Blackmore was right.

The good news is that Gillan and Blackmore in particular are just incredible on this DVD! Of course the rest of the band are great too,..especially Paice, but it's the Gillan/Blackmore show on this night.

This was shot in Sydney Australia way back in late 1984, please tell me why it took till 2013 to finally see the light of day!!!!! Anyway, if you are even just a casual fan of Deep Purple, this is a must! It is the only known footage of a complete show from the Perfect Strangers tour, and the band is on FIRE! It does not get much better from the classic Mark II line up of Ritchie Blackmore, Ian Gillan, Jon Lord, (R.I.P.), Roger Glover, and Ian Paice. All the 'hits' are here, but 5 tracks from Perfect Strangers are included, (as they should be), and sound just as good mixed with the classics. The picture, and sound is superb! I purchased the set that includes dvd and double cd of this stellar show.
A MUST!!!!! What a great show from a GREAT BAND! I will only say this once more, WHAT TOOK SO LONG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is a fantastic show. I have been waiting to see this for nearly 30 years. Now Eagle Rock needs to find the Providence RI show that was filmed in March of 1985 and get that out. Plus MTV shot a documentary at the time that was never released. And one Holy Grail for me is the complete 10 min video shot while the band jammed the instrumental track "Son of Alerik". Let's get this stuff out now before we are just too old. We could have been enjoying this concert for the past 3 decades.

Well, I won't do an extensive song-by-song review, but suffice it to say that this is positively the BEST Deep Purple DVD that I've seen yet...I saw them on this same tour, back in Feb of '85 at the old richfield Coliseum, and this DVD captures all the intensity and energy that I remember from that incredible night...

I remember the band blowing the roof off the joint that night, and this DVD MUST be played in it's entirety to be fully experienced and appreciated. The DTS 5.1 mix, magnificent video and audio quality, and high-energy performance will chew you up, spit you out, blow you away, and leave you wanting more...Lol! :)

...I kid you not.

This lineup's unique chemistry is clearly evident here, while they were still having fun together—The show opens with "Highway Star", or course, and the first half will keep you captivated, no doubt...Then the second half, beginning with "Child in Time", with the echo-delay and timed harmonizer vocal effects done just right lends an atmosphere to the song like no other version you have heard or seen...unless, of course, that you saw them on that tour, as I did...

From there, the intensity level and top-shelf musicianship, tightness, cohesiveness and brilliant showmanship is sure to impress, as it builds and builds and finally explodes in audio and sonic majestic magnificence...

The bonus features a nice documentary on the tour, along with some interesting interviews and video clips...

This is to DVD concert films what "Made in Japan" is to records and CDs. IF you're a Deep Purple fan, and don't have this yet, what the heck are you waiting for? You just aged another day, fer cryin' out loud, heh heh...This one is essential. If you're NOT a DP fan, you WILL be after viewing this one.

Get the friggin' DVD, crank up the volume on your system, and

I was not expecting much with this video. Although Purple is my fave band, I saw this tour live and was not impressed. The band was sloppy and not enthusiastic. Granted, the venue was terrible for a hard-rock ( DP is NOT heavy metal, folks) concert, but still. But I have virtually all the DP concert footage available and wanted this one. Boy, was I wrong. This baby is amazing. First, you do need to know that it is not HD. At times, especially with far-away shots, it comes across as shot as a VHS recording. But most of the time the footage is tremendous, especially of.......RITCHIE BLACKMORE. This is, for me, the most incredible footage of the magic and mayhem of the original Purple guitarist. Time and again we are given close-up views of him tearing up his 6-string. He plays a solo during "Child in Time" that is frenetic. But, later he plays another one during an extended version of "Space Truckin'" that is positively incendiary. I was literally holding my breath at the sheer verocity of his playing. Other highlights: a terrific drum solo within "Lazy" from the unmatched Ian Paice, and kickin' renditions of "Under the Gun" and "Speed King." And maybe the most delightful item about the whole concert; they are all having fun, with themselves and with each other, including the infamously temperamental Mr. Blackmore. There are smiles shared, laughter, teasing, and nods of appreciation. I have NEVER witnessed these particular five men enjoying themselves on stage to this degree. The bonus documentary is interesting. And, in a hugely wonderful development, the sound is very impressive. I wish I would have been able to attend THIS concert of the tour, rather than the one I did.Read more ›

Isn't 'Difficult To Cure' a Rainbow song ? That's odd, isn't it ?

Difficult to cure
Yes, but it's really an instrumental version of Beethoven's 9th which was on that Rainbow Album and called that. Nothing beyond that I'm sure, he always used it as part of his guitar solo......
