[ d e e p P u r . p l e ) The Highway Star

Atlanta Reflections

After reading the many wonderful reviews of the Atlanta show, I figured that there was no point duplicating them. They truly captured the moment. Besides, as a Highway Star editor, I'd probably be accused of kissing ass by a Blackmoron. :-) I spent a lot of time listening to fan comments/reactions during and after, and Atlanta was definitely floored. Ritchie would have been depressed. ;-)

My main impressions of the concert: I've never heard such an amazing vocal performance from Gillan; Seventh Heaven is bound to be another Purple classic; and this was my all-time favorite Purple show.
