    I suppose that is Edels decision. And what a silly one. Not letting you guy´s promote and discuss the album on one of the biggest DP sites on the Internet.

    I guess it takes about 5 minutes to find the whole album on emule or any torrent site… if you want to.

    That Really sucks. For the first time ever we wont have a clue about how the new album will sound? I really wish EMI were still there. What have Edel got to lose by letting die hard fans hear 30 seconds from each song? Now I REALLY cant wait for ROTD. Only one more month to go………

    “Now I REALLY can’t wait for ROTD.” Maybe that’s the idea behind not allowing us post sound clips? :^)

    No need to say bad things about Edel though. We’ve had much better contact with them than we ‘ve had with any record company so far. I guess it’s hard to sell a cd today, lots of things to consider and think about what is right and what is wrong.

    Yeah Your right, especially about having a lot more contact. I suppose ROTD is gonna be a real surprise which is a good thing.

    It´s great that the contact is good with Edel. But I can´t still figure out the point of not letting 30-60 seconds sound clips be posted on the site. It´s like an advert to promote the cd. And if it´s one place on the net where they should be it´s right here!

    Well, well I will not babbel on about the subject. All the reviews sounds great so it probably will be worth the wait 🙂

    I’m glad no sound clips will be posted on http://www.thehighwaystar.com . It’s kind of like looking at your Christmas presents a couple weeks before Christmas Day. Patience is a virtue.

    Fan since 1972 says:

    No, it’s a bad idea not to have a sound clip. I still have, and listen to, my clip file from Bananas. It actually is an excellent example of just how good that album is and gets me longing to hear it again. Aren’t there any goods licks on ROTD? What are they hiding? Maybe it will be better if I don’t get the new album. I would hate to be disappointed for the first time in over 30m years.

    Jim says:

    If you think ‘Bananas’ is such a good album, why do you need a website sound clip to spur you to listen to the album? Pretty silly logic. Even sillier is your knee-jerk assumption that just because they don’t want to let the cat out of the bag before it’s time, that they’ve got something to hide. If you’ve been a fan since ’72 (by the way, so have I), you’ll buy the album no matter what. Having to wait four weeks won’t make a difference.

    melodicrock.com has posted 5 30 second sound clips
    of the new album.

    Friends, I know this ain’t the proper place for that but… what is that Made in Japan DVD?

    You can bet your backside on this being yet another for real fans useless items of unknown musicians and music journalists offering their amateur opinions on our favourite live album accompanied with unlicensend live footage(probably from Doing Their Thing once again).

    Svante says:

    As far as I know, Milan is absolutely correct on this. It is NOT a video version of the live album “Made in Japan”.

  14. 14
    Marcelo Soares says:

    As I suspected. Many times over I had seen the Copenhagen VHS labelled “Made in Japan”. My bets go to that one.

    While it’s pretty clear that a full footage of the historical Japan gig’s will not suddenly appear out of the blue, I don’t agree on the uselessness of this kind of DVD outputs we’re talking about.
    Might not be to everybody’s taste, but I for one find it interesting to hear what musicians, producers etc. more or less related to a band or a recording has to say.
    What’s up here is a critical review of the best live record ever. No more, no less. If you don’t like it, don’t buy it. But don’t say this ain’t nothing wort for a real fan. That’s a bit childish, I think. Taste differ, ok?

    Milan says:

    Okay, you like it. I still don´t see the purpose of it, you can read reviews everywhere, you know the album in and out, why need a bunch of unknown music journalists tell you what you have to think about it(they seem to consider their opinions a bit more than subjective, it seems).

    So why spend money on DVDs that offer nothing new at all using a medium that doesn´t use it´s possibilities as it should at those prices? It´s a review and reviews you can read with spending much less money. Do you regulary watch that and enjoy it? Do you sit there and say to your friends with the popcorn bag:”pass me that on, pal! Look right now he says that he loves the guitar solo in child in time…yeah, there it was!”

    When it was on TV for instance I´d of course watch it, but I don´t think I´d even bother to record it.

    Of course taste does differ, some people have good taste, and some just don´t. 🙂

    Sure! I regularily sit here and say to my friends with the popcorn bag:”pass me that on, pal! Look right now he says that he loves the guitar solo in child in time…yeah, there it was!” All the time, actually! 😉
    Er.. no. But the review dvd of Burn has a great interview with Glenn Hughes, the Rainbow thing has Doogie White, and both have more musicians from the Purple family tree, along with other people who tends to know more than I do about these things.
    I wouldn’t compare any of these outputs to dvd’s like Making of Machine Head, but what ain’t the best ain’t therefor garbage either. Have you seen all the dvd’s you dislike so much, or do you generalize from one or two?

    Milan says:

    Ah well I see you collect those and love them. No I haven´t seen that one that involves band members, but that seems to be the rarity anyway. I remember watching the Machine Head DVD and everytime one of those music journalists came on we went like:”Go away! What has that guy lost here, what does he know?!” Wanting to see the band or the producer.
    I wouldn´t buy the whole thing for small bits of interviews even, as I´ve said on TV I´d watch it but why pay for it, I don´t get it.
    What makes this really bad that they advertise the rare footage of which they include only small low quality snippets which are taken from old VHS cassettes say unlicensed bootleg material.
    So no Made In Japan stuff, either just some people telling me what I knew before anyway.

    No audio clips? Oh well, no big deal. I’ve had a promo copy for a couple of weeks now and it makes no difference to me. BTW, this is a great CD.

    I have heard most of the tracks from ROTD and beleive me it is worth it, I have been a fan since Hush was first released, back when God was a boy and this CD sounds very good.

    Joe says:

    I just heard this cd and I also believe it is one of Deep Purple’s best. Now we all need to do our part and start calling our local radio stations to get this great music played on the air!
