Mandrake Root is in E minor. It gets a lot of its punch from the deep E string on the guitar. If this song would get transposed, this punch would get lost or Steve would have to detune his guitar which imho would make sound it strange.

I have my reasons why I'm against changing keys. For me it's not all about Gillan, Gillan, Gillan.

Mandrake Root would be great, but as I said, the end of a concert is the time for the classics and despite being annoyed by the way the last hour of the set is designed, the people usually go crazy, because they know all the songs. If they changed it, they'd take well-known songs and Mandrake Root isn't really.


An interesting reflection. To some Mandrake Root (especially live) is one of the shining classics, to others it is an irrelevant obscurity !

Why can't they change the encore every night/every other night/every week? The encore doesn't need to be set in stone, many bands change the encore every night.

To have the same encore every night for 15 years (apart from a few nights at the beginning of ROTD tour) is entering AC/DC territory.

I don't see the point in changig it every night, I'd be happy with anything different really.
Ian Paice once said about rotating a number of songs, that they tried it but soon found one song working better than the other which lead them to decide on one specific song. I can understand that as I made the same experience with the bands I played in.

"An interesting reflection. To some Mandrake Root (especially live) is one of the shining classics, to others it is an irrelevant obscurity !"

I'm sure that the average fan at a concert doesn't know Mandrake Root! It wasn't on In Rock or Machine Head, and certainly not on Made in Japan, it also was no single hit. It's a rarity, not a classic.

The last song should always be "Smoke". I remember a concert in 1994 when hundreds of people left the building singing "Smoke on the water, fire in the sky". Even in the streets you could hear them sing afterwards. The encore should open with Hey Cisco and Hell to pay imho.

The point is also, I think, how they want to be perceived by the public, which kind of show they offer to promoters when they're booked for a gig, and for that which kind of band they want to be. As it is, despite what they may say in interviews, they sell the image of a "classic rock" band, so that audiences and promoters perfectly know in advance what they are getting with them, like going to see a musical or a piece of theatre . They don't even try to "educate" their audience, to open their ears to different arrangements, different material, rotating set lists. It's their choice, of course and I'll enjoy their future live shows nonetheless like I enjoyed the previous ones but still it leaves me with a sense of "what if".
