Re: Mark V Live - Freiburg show


One great show! They dont make em like that no more! Lot's Gillan arse-lickers here putting down Joeleen but the fact is this line up was light years ahead of what there is today. And there aint a single post 1994 show that would even hope of reaching the level of this or many other great 1991 shows.

Re: Mark V Live - Freiburg show


I find it very difficult to compare Ian Gillan with Joe Lynn Turner, as they are very different singers, musically, technically and in every way.

Following Gillan's advise not to look at rock music like it was any sort of olympic competition, but rather appreciate everyones contribution for what it is on it's own, I find it very interesting to compare how the band Deep Purple remain the same yet turn into something totally different with these two very different singers.

Even MkV did some very good performances by any standard, as much as MkII did not live up to the Made In Japan level every night. I believe, though I don't know how to prove this, that the best gig MkV ever did was far better than the worst MkII ever did.

On the average there's still no doubt that MkII did truly build DP's legacy on the stage, while MkV did not overall contribute too much in that respect.

For me (and not just for me) the Freiburg show is the best show of the S&M tour. The Philadelphia show is quite popular because there's a soundboard recording existing of that, but musically it's far poorer than Freiburg. And the Czech show (Ostrava) was the first show of the tour, so Mk V still had to develop their live act.




For me the Philadelphia show is something I could just kick myself over. I was just down the road staying in Baltimore that weekend. If I only knew that this was Ritchie's last ever USA DP shows.... I just wasn't the superfan of any band back then, plus there was no internet so information was hard to come by, although, I probably would not have cared anyway. I had been a Ritchie and dp fan for about 9 years at that point, I just wasn't a superfan of anything and I wasn't buying any music during that period. Going after all the CDs and really really getting into all this for real didn't start till 1995. Sucks. I live in LA, so this wasn't my neighborhood either.

Today: 20 years ago.
I´ll turn up the volume of the stereo and give the tape of this fantastic gig a listen tonight - with a beer or two...
