    Just got around to ordering Rising Sun on vinyl, so likely won’t bother with this. I am liking the series, though. Hopefully they can find a way to issue the Olympia ’96 recording on vinyl – that’s one of my favorites.

    Toss out tracks 8 & 13 and replace them with tracks 14 & 15.There would be no need for CD2 at all.

    And still, we have nothing from the inFinite/Long Goodbye tours.

    I’d like to see them issue the entire Montreux 2000 show. It was available for down load years ago which I couldn’t do and a few bits were on the Montreux 1996 DVD and CD. It appears to have been a great show.

    if a 2017-2018 turned up in this series, already in 2019 – that would probably mean that an official Infinte tour release was not in the cards.

    While this is also official, there’s certainly a difference in packaging / production from Newcastle 2001 compared to Wacken 13/Budokan 14.

    I’m keeping my fingers crossed we’ll have something similiar from the Infinte tour…

    sans moi aucun intérêt! toujours des reprises des titres les plus connus du début!

    Well, it happened again. Someone who doesn’t think they should play Lazy, one of the greatest songs they ever did (and always worth hearing an seeing live). WTF

    At Mike – so you have missed infinite live recording vol.1

    George Martin says:

    I’d like to see something from the Bananas tour. The tour when they did the entire Machine Head album from start to finish. Never Before live was great and it’s the only time I’ve ever seen this song performed live. Also a lot of the Bananas album was played live as well. A truly great show.

    Good set list 😎

    George Martin @8,

    Your comments are spot on. Many criticize that recording. To each his or her own I suppose. Never Before was the highlight for me and you are correct. They never played it from the moment Machine Head was released. At The Beacon Theater, NYC gig I was at, I was however disappointed that they did not play House of Pain nor Bananas. The interplay between Steve and Don remains off the charts. Would love to see that in the set list. It’s been ripe for quite some time now, eh?

    @ 7- I saw that album only available as a high-priced import. Immediately forgot about it.I don’t think it has been released in North America.

    @ 8- The Bananas/Machine Head show at Massey Hall,Toronto on Feb 26th,2004 nudged 2 hours.Should have been recorded,filmed,& officially released. It would have made a fine souvenir of a superb night !

  12. 12
    mike whiteley says:

    @ 6- I’ve heard enough live versions of the standard Machine Head songs that have been in the set for ages
    .Just my opinion.Hardly worth a WTF,really.

    George @8
    I could not agree with you more. I saw DP at the beacon theatre in Manhatten in March 2004. They done two shows at the Beacon I saw the second show. They played House of pain. Silver tongue, I got your number, Bananas and contact lost. The energy on stage was electrifying and our beloved IG was wearing his famous all white outfit sweeting perfusley. Yes they did the whole of machine head without much improvisation in length but Bananas tracks stood out for me. I love that album. It’s so diverse and full of great fun material. I just wished they didn’t rush it’s production.
    Have a great day.
    Love and peace to you all

    Ted @ 10 and Adel @ 13
    I have seen Deep Purple every time at the Beacon since Steve joined the band! It’s a great venue with great sound. I just saw them there October 8th of this year. My all time favorite band. I can truly say I love these guys and meeting them is always awesome. I hope it continues for a long time!

    @11 – I was there as well! We should of bootlegged that show…I don’t remember if there was an opening act that time out. Damn I’m getting old! They played there again with Monster Truck a few years later. That was a great show as well. Been going every tour since 1983 anywhere near the GTA. Just missed the 2005 tour – because my soon to be wife made me go see Loverboy and I forget who else at the Mississauga Water Festival! I still bug her about that – Damn – The things we do for LOVE! Even went to the Slaves & Masters tour at Kingswood Music Theater – Got there to find out it was cancelled… Didn’t really want to see JLT as the front man so my wish came true! LOL!

    Bananas was released in CD for sure ( I have it) – I never saw the vinyl here and now it is going for much $$$$$ – Re-Release Please! I love that album for some strange reason! Maybe it was the show at Massey!

    Rock Voorne says:

    My 2 cents….
    Can Rotterdam 2000 be re released in full format?

    I do have a boot of it but would like to have the Concerto part in better quality.

    Please before I m too old to realise its done

    mike whiteley says:

    @ NWO- Do you mean Bananas,the studio album,or the LIVE Massey Hall show ??
    If Massey Hall show was officially released,I’ve never seen it.

    Randys says:

    Agree with NWO @ #15.

    “Bananas” should be reissue on 2-LP gatefold vinyl format.

    Also “Abandon” should be release also on 2-LP gatefold vinyl format.

    NWO says:

    @ 17 – I wish Massey was released! LOL! Like I said we should have done a bootleg!
    @18 RIGHT ON!

    I’m sure I have a copy of the Massey Hall show. I used to try and obtain all TO (Toronto) shows. Opening act was Thin Lizzy. Of course not officially released
