4.0 out of 5 stars The Return of the greatest live Band., October 19, 2013
This review is from: Perfect Strangers - Live (DVD)
Well I just finished watching this Reunion Concert from 1984. This was a very good concert and the Band was really on fire. This is one of the first of the reunion concerts, though you could not tell it. They had such chemistry playing live. Ritchie Blackmore, Jon Lord and Ian Paice are such great musicians. They were the instrumental core of the Band and they have never been matched by any other Rock Band in their ability to play and create huge excitement live. Now with that said. There are some flaws in the footage. The camera work or editing was not always too good. During the keyboard solos, the camera is wondering around filming the other members. But that's a small criticism. My other criticism, was the sound of Blackmore's guitar in the 80's. It was not as tight as the 70's or the 90's. Amazingly some of his greatest live work is from the Deep Purple tours of 91 and 93. Check out the Stuttgart Germany show of 1993. Some of his most molten and tight playing He ever put down. But in the 80's, he was sometimes unfocused and a bit sloppy at times, live. Still there is some fantastic work from him in this show. The man was a Rock giant, who could bring a listener to a mental state of inciting a riot. The solo from Jon Lord is also just fantastic. He is my favorite musician of all time, and He is really missed. He died in 2012. Any dvd with him playing is worth the purchase, in my opinion. So in the end, I give it 4 as opposed to 5 stars, for the reasons mentioned above. Its a very good show and its worth having in your Rock collection. Richard.
