I had pretty much given up on deep Purple after the House of Blue Light and a very quick listen to Purpendicular but something made me check this album out. The opening track is Fireball and I half expected it to be some tired old rockers trotting out a mediocre version. Whoa Nelly! Was I wrong. This track and every other one is blistering! The band absolutely cooks on this album and its so cool having a complete, uninterrupted live show, in the correct order and surprise, surprise a horn section. After this I went out and bought every DP album I'd missed, saw the band at every opportunity, and was first in line for new releases. They have restored my faith and I promise you they do not disappoint, live or on record now. The only explanation I can give is Steve Morse. We owe him not just for his playing but for breathing new life into a band that was in danger of dying out due to internal conflict. Great sound and mix on this record too. So much tighter and better sounding than Nobody's Perfect. You can tell they were having fun. Get it!

Deep Purple set the standard for "live" rock 'n' roll albums when it released Made In Japan in '72. Until then, live albums were considered gimmicks, mere souvenirs for fans of the artists. But Made In Japan paved the way for others as radio stations began playing the live versions instead of the studio versions of the same songs as sales of Made In Japan went through the roof. It proved to record company execs that live albums were viable, marketable forums for rock music.
With 1996's Live at the Olympia, Deep Purple has raised the bar for live recordings yet again. The addition of Steve Morse on guitar has revitalized a great band that was in dire danger of becoming stale and caricatures of what they once were.
This 2-CD set is an unedited account of the band's show at the Olympia in Paris. Gone are the interminable drum and organ solos and bombastic "LOOK AT ME!" guitar workouts. Instead, we have a crisp 17-song set that includes six tunes from the wonderfully eclectic Purpendicular album (Morse's first studio effort with the band) and shows the band to be having the time of its life ... and that is gleefully reflected in the performances.
With Ritchie Blackmore gone, the band was free to pick and chose material from its vast and impressive catalog of songs. Consequently, while we still have the umpteenth versions of "Smoke on the Water" and "Highway Star" here, gems such as the previously unreleased "When A Blind Man Cries" from the Machine Head sessions, and "Fireball" and "No One Came," from the Fireball album make this a must-have for any Purple fan.
"Maybe I'm a Leo," and "Pictures of Home," two of my favorite numbers from Machine Head, get a rare inclusion in a live Deep Purple set here.

Are you open minded enough to read another opinion? 'Cause "Live in Olympia" is the best live album of Purple, that makes me see "Made of Japan" today, as an old fashioned boring ego trip of Blackmore. I don't have much patient anymore for long guitar solos - if you want to say something - do it shortly! "Made in Japan", like Zeppelin's "Songs remain the same", was the best heavy metal album in the 70's, but does'nt do anymore. Unlike the two, Olympia is a miracle of a great band, that for many years seemed to be dead, but suddenly came alive. Why? In one word - Blackmore. In 3 words - Blackmore and Morse. All other members of the band, as well as the fans, should send flowers to Ritchie, for leaving the band, and congratulate the other members for bringing Steven. Suddenly we can listen to the classics, of "Maybe I'm a leo", "No one came" (my favorite) and others that we could'nt even hope during the Blackmore era. Morse is probably the reason for the good albums that the band released during the late 90's. Anyway, everyone of them sounds as young and fresh like in the golden years of the early 70's, and if you like Deep Purple and want to listen to a great classic of the band - buy it, althogh the price is high.

The magical touring year of 1996 for Deep Purple has now been captured on what they dub their "Official Bootleg": Live AT The Olympia '96, or as fanatics call it, LATO '96. It is truly one of their finest live albums ever, right up there with Made In Japan, Scandinavian Nights, and Live In London--and better than such fine efforts as Come Hell or High Water and The Final Mk. III Concerts. LATO '96 finds a band finally having fun again, free to play any songs that all five of them want to play (no offense, Mr. Blackmore, but I could never understand why you were so hell-bent on sticking to the 1972 set list even though there are so many fine gems located elsewhere in your song catalogue). And those "fine gems," tunes like "Maybe I'm A Leo," "When A Blind Man Cries," and "No One Came," finally make their appearance here. So do some of the best tracks from Purpendicular (although, alas no Castle Full of Rascals or Somebody Stole My Guitar). The whole band is playing and singing well. Steve Morse sets everyone on fire with his rapid-fire, modern guitar lines. When I met him recently I complimented him on Purpendicular by saying that with each song I couldn't wait to hear the next, and on Abandon I really liked the raw way they re-did "Bloodsucker." I forgot to bring LATO '96 to the show for him to sign or I would have remembered to tell him that this CD kicks major booty! I even now like the 3 horn players who appear on about four tunes for fun. As Jon Lord told me in alt.music.deep-purple (back when I was known as dpbelle), they were there to spice things up. To Messers Morse and Lord, and the other DP guys, thank you for believing in the power of live music!
