Filmed on the closing night of this year s Montreux Festival on July 16, this concert features Deep Purple playing their classic hits with the
accompaniment of a full contemporary orchestra conducted by Stephen BK Bentley-Klein. The orchestrated arrangements give an added depth
and range to the familiar songs and the band, who are clearly enjoying the experience, deliver one of their finest performances. With a career
stretching back into the late sixties and global album sales in excess of 100 million, Deep Purple need no introduction. They continue to record and
perform around the world on an ongoing basis and remain of the finest hard rock bands on the planet as this live DVD clearly shows.

It turns out that I adore the band with the orchestra, and think that it adds amazingly to the depth of the performance. The arrangements were very smart with conductor Stephen Bentley-Klein providing perfect accents and accompaniment to these rock standards. Musicianship is first rate, with Don Airey doing well living in Lord's shadow, Ian Paice never missing a beat, Roger Glover being the consummate bassist, and Steve Morse providing his unique takes on the material and smoking through the set (I particularly loved the Billy Gibbons-inspired solo on "Black Night," though I think "Hush was better when I saw them in Minneapolis.) It's a given that the music is great (a particular highlight is "No One Came") but the DVD also has quite extended interviews that add considerable value for true fans. I was particularly intrigued by Paice's interview, especially his comments on "No One Came" (and his amusing comments about why he dislikes Facebook.)
While some people harp on Gillan's diminished vocal abilities, I prefer to think of it from a "glass half full" perspective: he may not be able to do what he did on "Machine Head," but most vocalists would still be envious of his considerable talents. As for the rest of the band, they have never sounded better. This is a great show, and the orchestra takes it to another level entirely. I recommend this DVD without reservation.
