Yes, guitarsoloes are fine, but when it's the same solo over and over and over and over and over again year after year... That's boring!

Re: Rapture of the deep tour edition cd


first of all you are exaggerating, as always when you talk about morse

second of all, go and listen to his solo stuff. he is very creative, ecclectic, and very emotional. For me musically and technically he beats Blackmore, but this perhaps stems from the fact that I prefer prog-rock, jazz rock to plain rock and roll

The only problem with Steve is that indeed he shows like 10 percent of his capabilities in DP and I do not know why it happens.

I was discussing it in some other thread. He does not want to? HE does not feel like? He is too restricted buy the formula?

well, whatever.

When I listened to DP I thought he is great.

After I listened to his solo stuff, I say he is one of the best guitarists ever.

And finally, let's debunk the myth that Ritchie was not repeating himself. I guess this is your point of refernce for Morse so that is why I am mentioning the man in black. Oh yes he was repetitious. He was clever enough though to cover it up by using a riff/solo recycling technique.

take care

1) Nope!

2) Since I don't like guitarist's that rely on technique I have no interest in wasting any money on his solostuff. I have one live CD of the Dregs, and that was painful enough to listen to! Steve's playing emotional? It's nothing more than technique!

3)Technically he beats Blackmore, musically he doesen't reach Blackmore even to the height of Blackies toes!

4)The only problem with Steve is that he is in Purple!

5)What formula are you talking about? The one that says that in Purple you can do whatever you like during the jams/ solosections? The only reason he don't show what you prefer to call his capabilities is that they don't fit within a hard rock band.

6) Well, I guess that he is the best one for you then. Me, I'm not impressed by guitarplayers that rely upon technique, scales and runs, high pitch notes etc.

7) All guitarplayers repeat themselves, but some do it way better than others.

8) Dittoemoticon

Re: Rapture of the deep tour edition cd


ok, so give one more try and listen to steve morse band records, not dixie dregs

listen to 4 minutes to live, eyes of a child, listen to the whole album high tension wires, or major impact 1 and 2

there are so many emotions in those songs/albums

but of course I understand you might prefer the way blackmore expressed emotions when playing, it is just a question of taste etc.

When I was talking about forumula I meant that in DP he usually squeezes a solo or two into the song whereas on his solo albums he can buld the song from scratch, he has more time, more freedom and he does not have to make it so condensed. he does not have to make room for singer, keyboard player. as a result he can build more complex and longer solos. moreover he is mor eeclectic on his own records. if you take steve morse band records, you would find rock, jazz rock but also bach, folk-rock, blues... thus his albums are very much versatile and interesting. he does not have that much freedom in dp. they will never let him do it.

Note also that on studio purple albums we do not have that many improvisations and freedom. We never had!! Only during live performances they show some prog like approach. and live steve does very well, in my opinion.

I've got to hand it to you, WM: KB says he doesn't like what he has heard from an artist, so you stack 3 albums and two songs for him to listen to. Do you work in telemarketing or something? emoticon

Re: Rapture of the deep tour edition cd


Some people just don't like Steve Morse in Deep Purple, due to his roots not being from the same soil, which breeds an unwanted style, into a band with some fans that don't welcome that change.

One would have to atleast be looking for a bump in the road by now, since he's been in the band so long, it can't be roses forever...

Re: Rapture of the deep tour edition cd


Well, I just received it last week from [sign in to see URL], and I think it's really good. I love Things I Never Said, and I'm sure it blends quite well coming out of Pictures of Home at their shows. I've heard the Well Dressed Guitar quite a few times before, and I always thought it would be nice to have the studio version of it. I think the live tracks are fine - they could use a bit of cleaning up, but I don't think they are as bad as all that.

I was hoping the "Rapture of the deep tour edition" would be lovingly re-mastered. I'd like to hear the sparkle of the cymbals for a change. emoticon

Re: Rapture of the deep tour edition cd


I worry more about the mix of the drums, as a whole, not to mention alot less bass in the mix altogether... "even" is the word I'm thinking of.

Re: Rapture of the deep tour edition cd


I saw it and bought it immediately (for the Rapture live tracks)

Clearly quite absurd: well, my wife likes it (that says enough)
The well dressed guitar: like it.
Live versions of Rapture Of The Deep and Wrong Man : like it.
Highway Star: one of the better live versions available (in my humble opinion that is)
Smoke On The Water (version # 36 already?): appearantly unavoidable, but who needs it?

Hopefully the next live album contains a considerable deal of Bananas and Rapture songs and a little less on the Mk II songs.
