I was always gobsmacked that they didn't tape, say all the Budokan dates in '85, and issue a live album to fill the gap before HOBL. Would've also enabled them to pension off a couple of MIJ tracks before the HOBL tour as well.


I could imagine that there simply wasn't too much demand for a live album. In the mid-1980's the time of "we want a live album from every tour" hadn't yet begun.

Moreover, Bruce Springsteen had released his famous five LP live set in 1985, no DP live album would have had a chance to compete with that. Beside that, perhaps the record company wanted to release something but the musicians didn't want because they weren't satisfied with the performances. Ian Gillan isn't a big fan of live albums anyway.

I read an interview with Roger Glover about the production of Nobody's Perfect. He said it had been quite difficult to pick versions of the songs which satisfied the band members. Ian wasn't pleased with his vocal perfomance on version A, Ritchie didn't like his guitar solo on version B and so on. So he mixed some songs (e.g. Child In Time) from more than once source. To me it feels that the band wasn't too exited about releasing a live album, it was more due to the pressure of the public. They wanted a "1980's Made In Japan", and of course no DP reunion recording can come close to that.



For me Nobody's perfect is the low point of all Mark 2 release's. Too many cooks..

As i've posted before a combo of the soundboard bootlegs from '87/88 produces a much better representation of that era of DP, and whilst not MIJ (what could be?)- it's still damned exciting, probably because the band didn't interfere.



The HOBL tour was pretty good. Gillan sounded good on many recordings that I have heard. I'm not sure how long he lasted, but he was better than on the PS tour. Check out the recording from Detroit on that tour. Good stuff. Toledo was as good or better.

Re: Arte Tv - Deep Purple beim Hellfest 2017.


I think that the worst part of Nobody’s Perfect is the set list. It was ridiculous dragging the same classics from 70’s around for a second time.
It was the perfect time for them to keep more songs from PS in the set, play more new songs from HOBL and then add some songs from the 70’s that were not played in the 70’s nor on the PS tour.
This would have freshened up the band, and as you say IG sounded good on the HOBL tour.

If Nobody’s Perfect had songs from PS, HOBL, and then say Pictures of Home, Fools, etc. and dropped SKOW, ST, CIT it would have been better. Play the songs that IG could still sing strongly.

Another opening song would have been nice also instead of HS, maybe play that as an encore.

^ I guess we could blame Blackmore for the stagnant set list choices. Once Steve Morse joined (or even Satriani filled in) the set list got more interesting.

Without Blackmore, there may be more variation in which songs are played.
With Blackmore, there was more variation in how the songs were played.

True. Sloppy, tight or no performance at all. emoticon
