DP "Philadelphia 1991"


Just received this one.
Soundboard recording almost perfect, particulary the second half.
Good show, with several lively moments:
Burn: Ritchie on fire, taking a few liberties with the riff here and there.
Black Night: Joe Lynn out of his element here but Jon and Ritchie drive it along nicely. In the end, there's a marvellous mess with everybody ending the song in a different moment. I'd love to have seen their faces in this moment as I love when Purple !@#$ it up big time!
Truth Hurts: long and moody intro from Ritchie, lovely outro with a guitar/vocals duet.
From here on Paicey is the man of the night, powerful and precise.
Another WTF moment at the beginning of Difficult To Cure, with Blackmore not waiting for Paicey entry.
Knocking and Lazy are furious.
Highway Star: good but a bit out of control, a little like in the MkIV days, must be because of the vocals.
Smoke: the intro riff is missing but the rest is a powerful version, including Paicey drum solo, a short Woman from Tokyo and a few minutes jamming on Hall of the mountain King.

"We'll see you next year" says Joe at the end.

Afair he says "See you tomorrow" because they did the next night at Philadelphia as well.

Yes, they did two nights but I think this recording comes from the second one. Earlier in the set you can hear Joe mentioning this saying that it's good to have time to unpack their bags every now and then.

I used to have a soundboard of both nights (first night was on a cassette). I later downloaded the second night but have never been able to find the first again. I thought the performance from the second night was a little better. Ritchie seemed more into it.

Re: DP "Philadelphia 1991"


I have a tape labelled April 20th, 1991. On this tape JLT says something about "good to see you on a Saturday night". As April 20th, 1991 was a Saturday indeed, the tape seems to be labelled correctly. Other sources I got (e.g. the "Burning Purple" CD) have the same show. According to [sign in to see URL] they did Philadelphia on the 19th and 20th, so this tape is from the second night (which means that my memory of JLT saying "see you tomorrow" seems to be wrong). I've never got a recording from the other Philadelphia show, so I find it very interesting if there's one existing.

Paice said that when Blackmore is on, the band is unbeatable as he pulls the rest with him.

I don't have the infamous Stockholm show which almost ended the band. By all accounts it was a disaster yet no one knows why. I know a guy who saw the gig, he said the PA was far too quiet to start with. The show was in the mighty Globen ice hockey arena. The band did a very good show in Gothenburg, and according to one of the biggest Deep Purple experts, Michael Eriksson, who saw both shows, said the second gig saved the band. Touch and go eh!

From the same tour? Or TBRO?

S&M tour. Sweden was one of the strongholds for Deep Purple so to upset Swedish fans was a big deal. This on the tour that saw the controversial singer substitution.

Have to listen to the show at some point. The band said the show just didn't have the needed spark. Like I wrote, a guy I know said it lacked punch because it was too quiet for Deep Purple.

I have the Philly show. JLT really butchers KAYBD and PS. He does much better with the MH songs. HS really kicks!! The Cut Runs Deep is also a highlite.

Funny, without having heard Philly I always thought JLT did KAYBD and PS the best of the Mk2 numbers. Well, Black Night too, but that's the easy one.
