If you are a true Deep Purple fan, you have to accept the fact that Richie Blackmore left the band over a decade ago, and that Steve Morse (Axeman Extrodinaire) is here to stay. This DVD is a brilliant document of the Abandon tour, and every member of the band show off their amazing musical abilities. Steve Morse is ON FIRE... Not since Eddie Van Halen have I seen a musician excercise ABSOLUTE COMMAND over his instrument like he does. Blackmore's playing had a very distinct style, yet Steve Morse has the uncanny ability to integrate aspects of RB's playing with his own to form a very interesting hybrid. This Band has been [successful] all over the world for more than three decades for one simple reason: their members are amoung the most talented musicians in Rock & Roll. This DVD (which has excellent production values and sound) is a testament to the greatness of this band. Play it for your friends and make believers of them all.
