Editorial Reviews

As the band continues on their mammoth 2 year tour, there has never been a better time for a comprehensive retrospective from the boys themselves. From the pick of archives worldwide, this film consolidates a career of media outpourings into a double disc set, illustrated by highlights of Deep purple at their best!

my biggest complaint is that the song clips, although rare & interesting are only 30 seconds clips. it'd been great if they gave the whole performance. as it stands, this is another "talking heads" documentary, blah blah blah. too bad they didnt follow the example of the Beatles Anthology where key songs & performances are complete & intact. this one is not a keeper.

This collection of videos is beyond bad. It's a massacre of so many classic Purple videos that deserve to be archived and presented in their fullness.

Most of the commentaries are by "rock journalist" blowhards that completely over-intellectualize their comments. That's not the worst of it. What would be utterly enthralling footage of Deep Purple in concert is brutalized in the edits. On one track, the narrator proudly announces that some vintage footage was found "in its entirety" and that it's some of the best film that exists of Deep Purple. You see the first ten or fifteen seconds ... a close-up of Lord's hands in an amazing organ intro ... and then it cuts back to another blowhard journalist giving his commentary on the band's significance at the time.

I didn't bring a stopwatch into the video, but it feels like most of what you see is no more than ten or fifteen seconds of video at a time. And that's regardless of how great the video is! Some of this is over-the-top classic stuff, and you're still given only a few seconds before an aging gentleman who wrote for a music magazine in the seventies interrupts and gives you his version of the events. (By the way, I've never heard of any of these "journalists" and the magazines they "journaled" for are never revealed. Are these guys for real?)

Who was responsible for this editing and this compilation? Shame on you. You had the keys to the kingdom in your hands and instead you gave us endless cut and pasts of egoistic rock journalists giving their take on Deep Purple.

The video shouldn't be called Stormbringers. The video should be called "Interruption Bringers" ... as in, ten seconds of Deep Purple and then and interruption by someone completely irrelevant giving his opinion.

IF you're looking for a concert film, ala Led Zeps "How the West was Won", it's not here. This is a documentary dominated entirely by British music critics and talking heads, some with very legitimate points on the band, others who seem to relish intellectualizing the historical importance of "Burn" over "Stormbringer" or "In Rock" over "Fireball". There are handfuls and snippets of actual interviews with the band. I spoke personally with Ritchie Blackmore once for about a minute, but to actually hear him open up in a relaxed tone was refreshing. Most of the audio or statements (particualrly from Ritchie) are taped.

I am glad the film focused on the 1968 to 1976 years of the band, it really would have been boring to have gone through the 'Perfect Strangers" reunion, the Joe Lynn Turner or Steve Morse eras. Purple was a hugely talented and influential band with at least three very distinctive faces and sounds--psychedelic Hendrix and Vanilla Fudge influenced rock, formative heavy metal with a classic tint, and bluesy hard rock that eventually strayed a little far to the soul camp for my tastes. The film documents that well.

I would love to have the archives dug up for more music and live clips, but that's not what kind of film this is. Know that going in and you won't be disappointed.
