Re: Sydney 84 DVD out late 2013


I attribute the 80s playing to him having a lot of personal stuff going down to the point where he met a new woman before the ink was dry on his divorce then during the HoBL tour things were quickly going sour with her not to mention the tensions with Gillan were at their highest too. I don't care how profession someone is, that stuff is going to creep into his work. Speaker cabinets, Marshall heads, countless guitars, a tv camera and a bunch of ex-wives have all paid the price.

Everyone is saying (and I agree) that his playing got better from Slaves and Masters on til now...well he's been with Candice the entire time. But even her presence couldn't keep Ritchie in DP since things had gotten so bad with Gillan (again). That tells you how far that relationship had truly fallen.

At the end of the day, women have played a bigger role in Ritchie's career than Yoko in Lennon's life... emoticon

Now, to me the 80's were a boring back in time for Blackmore. The two albums were marked with the difficulty to play again with Purple MkII, especially THoBL where the conflict with Gillan was at its peak.

Sounds strange for a guy who's currently playing medieval music, but I'm quite sure that the worst thing that can happen to Blackmore is to get stuck into the past. This guy doesn't stand to feel prisoner of an artistic scheme. He has constantly moved from one genre to another, even genres that he despised (e.g. "shoeshine music"). From skiffle to beat, from beat to hard rock, from hard rock to blues, from blues to soul, from soul to quasi-heavy metal, from quasi-heavy metal to pop, then back to hard rock with good times and bad times, until medievalish pop rock where he has retired now, making babies as a second hobby.

That said, Blackmore has payed some REALLY crappy stuff. Like the solo spots he used to do in 80s Rainbow.. Jeeez.



I like RB's approach, but he overplayed vastly during the 1980s. The playing sounded often somewhat directionless. Fills all over the place, like here in HS.

Still, infinitely more interesting than Morse's playing on the live stuff I've heard.

Like Litb0 wrote, RB obviously wanted to play like that at the time. In general, 1980s was a low decade for rock guitar. I was just listening to some Clapton, and he had a weird sound at the time. Like RB, he was back in form in 1990/1, in fact he has never played better than the period which was captured on the 24 Nights live album. Simply stunning guitar work.

Vienna 87 shows perfectly why I´m happy that Ritchie is gone and that Steve Morse is guitar player of band called Deep Purple.


Interesting. I thought the the DP Mk Nowadays fans like them because they like Steve's playing and not because of the absence of another guitar player. Now I know better.





Yeah, that's a very good point, no matter who plays guitar in DP, as long as it's not RB. Maybe the quality of the vocals doesn't matter as long as it's IG? emoticon

I personally don't care: I'm a Ian Paice fan, which is of course all good for me... emoticon emoticon

Even Jeff Beck had a major slip with the "Flash" album but managed to get it back with "Guitar Shop" toward the end of '89.

Re: Sydney 84 DVD out late 2013


I saw several DIFFERENT uploads on PERFECTPURPLE.com.

I saw the Perfect Waltz, which is said to be newly found stuff, but I dont know that.....

There are also 2 dvd and a 3 dvd uploads on there.

The 2 dvd I m downloading again because the file was corrupted when I played it on the tv.

The 3 dvd version? I dunno what's that supposed to include but I m downloading it.....

I do have a 1987 Live In Paris, but somehow I think it really is the one from VIENNA. Not sure though.

The Perfect Waltz is sometimes confused as pro footage. It is nothing more than some amature footage from right infront of the stage. Too bad it isn't complete. Also it looks as if the master tape was way overplayed as there are many glitches in it.

I actually like "Flash". It's a product of its time, but with a good energy.

Sorry off subject again.

YES, a DVD from MKII reunion would be amazingly GREEEAAAAT!
I can't wait to hear more squawking from Ian. emoticon
