Re: Live in Paris, 1975


Can anyone tell me if the new 'remix' sounds better, worse or just the same as the version of this concert released a few years back? In other words, is it worth buying again?

Still haven't managed to listen to the new edition, so can't comment, sorry.

I don't know if you saw my thread about it, but they've taken away one of the bonuses (the others are the interview bonus track on the CD and the new remix - no point in buying it for packaging, the Purple Records one is much nicer), the Sunbury festival programme scans.

I just gave it a few listens, in headphones and in the car, and it does sound different. More crisp, much brighter treble (nuances in RB:s guitar work more audible) , Jon Lord much more prominent in the mix, less bass (which is a bad thing IMHO, I love GH:s bass playing).

Because of the much brighter sound, it's slightly harder on the ears, but all in all I can recommend it for the amount of details it reveals in the playing. What a band they were!

Thanks Heimdall!

It's amazing how much better the 2004 edition was to the 1996 release. If it's still more nuanced, then I'll have to find time to listen to it asap.

I too love GH's bass, especially on Stormbringer and the tour.

Same here, as well as on CTTB. He's a truly awesome bass player, and inspired me to pick up the instrument. I owe him to this day.

Re: Live in Paris, 1975


I've given it a few more listens and have also compared the two side by side, and to sum it up, despite the added brightness and nuances I still much prefer the previous version because of its power and heaviness (which has a lot to do with Glenn's fantastic bass playing). This is most obvious during the intro to YFNK, where the bass is really low in the new mix.

I absolutely agree about the bass-heaviness of the 2004 version. The speakers were dancing when I first put it on, and when I went to the other end of the flat I could still hear the bass lines loud and clear!

One of the best sounding DP releases for sure, and a great gig, too.

Ha ha, that's great! I wish I could have done that, too - alas, both my wife and my daughters hate all 70's hard rock, so I'm mostly confined to headphones and the car emoticon

It most definitely is!

I also think that MIE is a masterpiece, despite the tinkering and the silly loop at the end. It's still one of my all time favourite records, I just love everything about it, but most especially the bass playing. It's f**king genius - so heavy, so funky, rhythmic and authoritative.
