    Great new’s, it’s much better that it’s a single dvd with nothing else. Don’t need those extra songs that were added on the other release. Would have liked it, if Ian Paice & David Coverdale were included in the interviews as well. They were part of he group as well. Am looking forward to buying this , will never watch the old poor quality Rises Over Japan video again!

    Thanks Chair. Nice to see you can still have some positive input. Of course it’s early on this blog. I’m sure you’ll come up with something negative toward our heroes….

    Whilst I didn’t mind some of the CTTB album originally all those years ago, what live material I have heard has always made me cringe big time! More to do with Bolin being off his head no doubt & Hughes also! Will definitely not be buying this “part of” Purple’s history! Hi to Tracey the Zero Hero!

    I for one will be purchasing this DVD. When a fan of Purple, all history is important. One segment leads to next. Though most of the live performances of this MK were subpar, the album was a true gem and a handful of gigs were also. As I stated prior, seek out the Live in Miami bootleg. This was a fine concert that I attended, and they were truly brilliant that night. Without a doubt the best show I have heard from that era, and I have heard many….
    Hi to MacGregor!

    Bought the DVD for only 20 dollars. The picture quality is fantastic, it’s much more colourful too. You can pick things up that you can’t see on the old video. The news has alway’s been Tommy was clean of heroin & that he took some , fell asleep on his arm & it went numb.

    This is the first i have heard from Glenn that somebody in the party gave him a morphine shot. Why did this happen ? he didn’t explain why? I thought most those documentary’s , focused on Glenns troubles to much, started feeling a bit depressed hearing him.

    Iv’e heard that Miami recording & it’s a great one. Yes the band were on top form that night. Same with the live in Longbeach . Mac Gregor i think it’s the opposite . Tommy played better when he was on drugs , he was more relaxed . When he needed to score that was the problem.
