Special Features


Editorial Reviews

After Ian Gillan and Roger Glover left after the release of "Who Do We Think We Are", Deep Purple decided to continue and entered one of the most controversial, exciting and extreme phases of their career.
Back then unknown vocalist David Coverdale (later superstar of his own band Whitesnake) and bass player Glenn Hughes joined the band. The following albums "Burn" and "Stormbringer" showed they could maintain the same levels of the previous incarnation of the band while maintaining "classic album status". When Ritchie Blackmore decided to leave the band, they surprisingly decided to continue, recruiting guitarist Tommy Bolin. The Mk IV lineup released the great album "Come Taste The Band", and played in front of immensely large audiences at the peak of their glamorous lives...until excesses affected the band and Bolin tragically died of a heroin overdose. Deep Purple were then officially split up.
This package features: RISES OVER JAPAN: 30 minute-long live footage filmed in 16mm in Japan, restored in HD. Never before released, not even on bootlegs. Originally planned to be included in a Deep Purple film the short movie was never released after Tommy Bolin's death. If it wasn't known the show is from 1976, the stunning video quality would make the viewer believe this is a production filmed with the most modern HD cameras. GETTING TIGHTER: The full length 90-minute documentary of the story behind Deep Purple after Ian Gillan and Roger Glover's departures. Jon Lord and Glenn Hughes tell the story of the "post Gillan" years, through never before seen live images, backstage footage, never before told stories and original video material collected through years of hard work. A real dream come true for all Deep Purple fans. New inside stories and the truths about the dark sides of Deep Purple with the rise and fall of their seventies years will really grab fans.

3.0 out of 5 stars If you know what you are buying it is worth having. June 29, 2011
By herb
I won't recap all of what is on here as others will do that.

For Deep Purple fans of this era it's a good product. You are essentially watching the demise of the band. What struck me on the concert footage was how good the quality was, because all I had ever seen was horrendous quality out -of -synch footage. The sound is really good and the picture is pretty good too.(Considering the era and previous versions) No synch issues. Sound and picture match up pretty well.

Ian Paice is just awesome on this show! If only he would play like this now! He's always been great, but he was exceptionally so on "Burn", "Come taste the band", and "Malice in Wonderland". He is really aggressive on this show. David Coverdale sings really well here too. Glenn Hughes, even when high, is a more dynamic bassist than Roger Glover. The band's core members know the band is compromised and they are trying hard to compensate, but it is what it is....It's a band without a guitarist that night.

As for Tommy Bolin? He is so bad on this show it is staggering to witness. Hard to believe he was capable of some of the great solos we all know from "Spectrum", "Mind Transplant", "Whips and Roses", "Ebbits Field" etc.
Jon Lord covers many of the riffs due to Bolin's supposed "hurt/numb arm" during this show. Bolin's stage presence is almost non-existent in comparison to Blackmore too. Just a shame all around as he just doesnt seem vested in the music. One of the booklets has an interesting quote from Lord about how Blackmore maintained a level of virtuosity even when not playing his best, and really didn't fall below that certain level. Yet he intimates that Bolin sunk deeply at times. I've seen Blackmore on bad nights and nothing compares to this feeble Bolin performance.

4.0 out of 5 stars Glimpses of mark 4 potential. July 26, 2011
I have just watched the concert footage and the documentary for the second time. On those two parts I would give a 3 star rating. But I added another star for the remastered CD live tracks. Wow. There are some great moments culled from those two concerts from Japan and Long beach California. Dec 75 and Feb 76 respectively. The tracks from the California concert are especially good. Tommy Bolin was hampered by his drug use on the first concert mentioned. I've read various accounts of why he could barely play on that night, still the other four carry the load very well. And on the Long Beach tracks, they are all just smokin! Come taste the band has long been a favorite album of mine. Though its not considered a proper Deep Purple Album. Whatever! It blows away their previous record Stormbringer. And I say that as a total purple fanatic. The best part of the Stormbringer album was jon lord's keyboard solo on the song "Highball shooter". CTTB is molten Rock and It just gets better with time. The live tracks show what could have been if they did not self destruct. A shame really. But thankfully they reformed with the mark 2 line up and have made tons more great music since the 70's. There is a bootleg show of their's recorded on the same tour in Miami in early febuary 76. The sound isn't too great but its listenable and there are parts that are just even better. It would be great if they would remaster that show and put it out. You can check it out on YOu tube. Keep on Rocking. Richard from Bradford PA

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice Mk IV package August 22, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The documentary is very well done and interesting with vintage clips and current interviews with Glenn Hughes and Jon Lord. It is a great account of the Deep Purple Mk IV era and I highly recommend it to any hardcore Deep Purple fans, especially Mk III and IV fans. The concert DVD is also very nice with the opportunity to see pro-shot footage of the highly talented collection of Coverdale, Hughes, Bolin, Lord and Paice together.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent addition to the Mark IV collection December 28, 2011
I have always had a soft spot in my hard rock/metal collection for the Mark IV line up of Deep Purple. Coverdale and Huges I always thought were an excellent fit for the band and created some of the best music that the band had ever done (in MKIII and IV). Tommy Bolin was an excellent player, but as noted by many others, was plagued with health caused by substance use problems. When I learned that this collection was coming out and then saw what it offered when it was promoted on That Metal Show, I knew I had to have it, and put it on my wish list. For the price that it's going for now, it is a steal. The DVD show of Japan is good quality as others have noted, and the CD that comes with it features material from Japan and from Long Beach performances, nicely placed together on this disc. The documentary is informative and I think well done. My favorite part of this set is the 2 books that come with it. One book is of articles and promotional items of and around late mark II, Mark III and Mark IV items. The second is the "Getting Tighter" The story of MKIV Deep Purple, which tells the story of how it formed, the hype behind, the reality of it, and the demise. Overall and excellent DVD/CD set with good show, great documentary, and excellent packaging. A must have for any purple fan, and fascinating story.

3.0 out of 5 stars DVD/CD combo April 16, 2014
By Zaba
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
First of all the dvd is great.As others have stated,the footage is greatly improved from all the boots and the doc is very informative.
However,the cd stinks. There is that annoying pop or gap between each song ,even if the songs are from the same gig.There must be a way to smooth that out in the mastering.If they take the time to hand pick the songs why did they not at least make it sound like a real show? That aside the sound is vastly improved from any other versions. I am probably nitpicking here,but it is aggravating.
