Product Description

Product Description

One of the founding members of the hard rock movement, Deep Purple rose to worldwide fame with monster hits like "Hush" and "Smoke on the Water." The group's legions of fans travel far and wide to attend their live events that feature screaming guitar riffs, screeching vocals, brilliant keyboards, dynamic drumming, and amusing stage antics, all translating into a signature Purple show and a remarkable concert experience. Songs: Woman from Tokyo, Ted the Mechanic, Mary Long, Lazy, No One Came, Sometimes I Feel Like Screaming, Fools, Perfect Strangers, Hey Cisco, When a Blind Man Cries, Smoke on the Water, Speed King, Hush.


The Purple's reign continues with this 14-song, 102-minute concert performance (the DVD includes an additional 30 minutes of interviews), recorded in '01. This band has been at it since the '60s, and the four original members still on hand (hotshot guitarist Steve Morse replaced Ritchie Blackmore in the mid-'90s) bring admirable energy and surprisingly sharp chops to the stage. There's something slightly discomfiting about watching singer Ian Gillan try to shriek his way through riff-heavy standards like "Woman from Tokyo," "Hush," "Highway Star," and the inevitable "Smoke on the Water" as if he were still just a lad, but for the most part he pulls it off; meanwhile, Jon Lord's keyboards and Gillan's efforts to write lyrics about something other than sex and partying help separate Deep Purple's sound from the rest of the metal throng. So you can't go home again. But Deep Purple show that you can at least book a ticket. --Sam Graham

Is "Deep Purple" really Deep Purple without Ritchie Blackmore? In my opinion Deep Purple can still lay it down even without Ritchie Blackmore on guitar. Granted Ian Gillan doesn't have the pipes or vocal range he once had, but hey he's not getting any younger. Ian Gillan struggles to hit some of the high notes that once made him famous but overall he does a very good job. Guitarist Steve Morse filling in for Blackmore brings his own flare and style of guitar playing and he does a great job. I have to admit on a few song's I said Ritchie who? After hearing Steve Morse play.

What more can you say about the incredible John Lord, he is the king of the keyboards and his performance on "Perihelion" is fantastic to say the least. Roger Glover doesn't really stand out in this performance, but he does his job very well. Now on to the amazing Ian Paice, he really is the glue that holds the band together. Ian Paice is a great drummer and his solo is but a small taste of what he can really do. Overall Deep Purple "Perihelion" is an enjoyable concert DVD with a nice clear picture and great concert sound. I rocked to it in 5.1 DTS and played air guitar when I wasn't dizzy from all the jumping around. Great Band! Great Performance!

I saw Deep Purple live only once, That was in 1973. On the same bill was ELO. Absolutely the greatest rock concert I have seen. Well, Led Zepplin and Pink Floyd were up there too.
My ears were buzzing and deaf after listening to, at that time,
the loudest rock band in the world. Richie Blackmore's guitar was deafening. Ian Gillian was difficult to hear......
Anyway, back to this DVD.
Have to agree with another reviewer.....Steve Morse is the saviour of this band. His energy and musicianship help along the older guys to get their maximum efforts out. And lets be clear, Purple band members are in their 50's (John Lord, now departed and "retired" is 60 something). Steve's guitar craft is excellent and makes me not even pine for Richie Blackmore (who is, BTW, a lost cause).
Gillian still has the voice, however he can't get the high notes that made him famous. Glover and Paice are satisfactory but certainly don't shine. The elder statesman, John Lord, was bang on with his keyboard playing. Where do you see and hear a Hammond organ with a rotating Leslie these days?
Lord, in the extras interviews, summed up the demise of classic rock by saying that they (Purple) were part of a time in history that young people today will never experience. This saddened him greatly. I agree.
To sum up, this is a good DVD, worth it to the Purple fan.

I've seen these guys live three times - 1984, 1986, and 1998. This DVD was almost as good as the real shows. The only missing element is Ian Gillian's voice - he can't hit those high notes anymore, and his lung power is very obviously fading. Despite all that, he has a rollicking good time, as does Steve Morse. The sound quality (DTS 5.1) cannot compare to the best I've heard (Eagles - Hell Freezes Over), but still, it's well engineered to suit Purple's genre of music - slightly muted highs and a great thumping bass line. "Perfect Strangers", "Lazy" and "Space Truckin" are the highlights. Also nice to hear an old favourite "Mary Long". But "Woman From Tokyo" was disappointing - the studio cut was better. The bass and drum solos on "Speed King" are simply out of this world - as good or better than the great Lord/Blackmore jam on "Strange Kind Of Woman" from the "Made In Japan" album.
Overall, highly recommended and a must have for any true rock fan.

This DVD is my favorite among those released by the current lineup (Mark VII for you purists) for several reasons: song selection, inspirational performances, and fine picture/sound quality. I agree with the other reviews -- the band is having a ball and they lay it out there show after show. Highlights for me include Screaming, Perfect Strangers, and Blindman, where Steve's tone and chops are among the best ever captured on video. This version of Screaming comes close to the 1999 LSO track, and both will make those small hairs on the back of your neck stand up. Lazy is a blast -- these guys breathe new life into it, and if your foot is not tapping throughout this song, you have no pulse. Two gold nuggets -- Hey Cisco and Fools -- were part of the 2001 setlist, and along with Hush, make for a variety not often found on what critics refer to as "greatest hits" tours for more seniored bands. Ian's voice is in great form (often accompanied by Steve's bends for the really really high notes) and he is a superb front-man, knowing when to take control and then give it back to his mates. Speaking of mates, Roger, Ian and Jon are so consistently brilliant that they carry Purple's distinctive sound through every song, yet blend in their own touches to the delight of the audience. These five gentlemen are arguably among the best musicians at their respective positions, and as fans we can only hope for more Perihelion's in the future. Eeeeeeeeeyowwwwwwww!
