I have a Paris 85 gig on audio cd, and if the sound is good bootleg quality, the performance is quite good. Gillan sounds as good as he could sound back in 85, and Blackmore's sound is loud and clear.
I think there are many sources available for that Paris gig.



The Paris gig in question was filmed for TV. They did a sloppy job both sound- and picturewise.

[sign in to see URL] wasn't just the TV guys who did a sloppy job that night. Blackmore was far from what we were used to (and far from what he bacame after Gillan's return in '92), and his guitarsound at the time was bloody awful. Gillan had a cold (surprise!!), and his performance that night was far from his usual standards. Jon Lord was good, but his hammondsound in the eighties was just as awful as the guitarsound Blackmore had. Lord said in interviews later that, during the eighties, he tried to make his Hammond sound like a synth. He couldn't explain why, but admitted that it was a stupid move. When Morse joined, he got Lord to move closer to his 70's sound. A very wise move!








I think you guys are pretty hard on the Perfect Strangers tour there!
Okay, it hasn't aged as well as the 70's or the 90's, but there are some good shows from that period.
I'm thinking in particular about the Belgian gig and the Swiss gig ,which I both have on bootleg and still enjoy very much.

But maybe it's just [sign in to see URL] time I saw dP live was in 85, and it sure was great!

I don't think I'm being to hard on them. The show in question was not a good one, and I've got the Knebworth show as well (on LP). It's just the same. Not good at all!

I know that they did stunning concerts during the reunion tour, and it's to bad that they haven't released any of the good ones...

But... I stand by that both Blackmore and Lord had a guitar/ hammond sound during most of the eighties that was bloody awful.

Things changed for the better at the beginning of the ninties, thank God!
