Windows


Back in the Seventies there was at German televission a broadcast of tghe whole event which was banned on Jon Lord's Windows. Does anybody know whether it exist an official video or DVD from this broadcast. I saw it in this former times on tv and was fascinated and got the album as a pressing from italy - if you hold the lp in the sun it has a deep purple colour and you can look through it! dd

I have the CD and in my opinion Jon has done much better!
It somehow lacks direction(other than the Concerto where every part fits perfectly to another). Everyone of the participants have done better as well, and the female vocalist is incredibly annoying.

Re: Windows


I remember watching it too, I believe it was in colour but I've only seen (parts of it) since in b/w. No video available ever AFAIK, but it's probably bound to show up sooner or later. Perhaps in connection with some future Whitesnake or P.A.L. release, although that's not too likely.

Re: Windows


Still waiting for the P.A.L. Lifespan video that was supposed to be released sometime soon.
(I've seen it before and it's black and white but pretty good)
The Windows video footage is at the top of my wantlist,
anyone who can help,please get in touch. emoticon

The "2006 In The Crystal Ball" blurb from the DPAS site mentions the following:

"Purple Records: have been fairly quiet for the latter half of 2005, mainly as Simon has been busy on other projects. However we're told high on the list are a CD edition of The Gemini Suite studio album, with a DVD edition of Windows, and the Silverhead back-catalogue also in the pipeline."

According to what Jon said in February 2005 during his concert on the very same location (Herkulessaal München) the tapes are lost...

As I'm sure John had zero rights to the footage...he would more than likely be just speculating...unless of course he's that proud of it.

Silverhead back cat huh...hhmmm how many albums did they make on the Purple label?
