Purple/Rainbow/Blackmore etc

Recommended Posts

I guess this is the most appropriate topic to post this rather odd video of Blackmore's Night. Here they are performing a somewhat obscure Jethro Tull song named "Rainbow Blues". The video jumps around, mainly focusing on Blackmore and his band, but also includes some Tull footage. I like watching the female singer (Candice) laying in bed singing.

Ah yes, Deep Purple - the Cortinas of rock. Never remotely in the same league as LZ, but I used to love them, and can hardly bear to listen to them these days. I put on Made in Japan recently, and had to turn it off after 3 songs. Eww.

IMO, the MKII sound has aged REALLY badly. Too much yucky Hammond. "Taxi for Mr Lord?" Their studio albums were puny, and their live improvisations deadly boring. Mks III & IV were more interesting musically, and haven't aged nearly as badly.

Baldrick's high-water mark was with RJD, specifically Rainbow Rising, side 2 to be precise. What a colossal side of vinyl that was. Ok, so Stargazer was a desperate Kashmir tribute, which has nevertheless rightly earned 'classic' status, but 'Light in the Black' is the true unsung epic, probably Baldrick's crowning glory. Absolutely stunning.

Nobody was in the league as Zeppelin when they were on form live..period, but Purple were more cosistant live and were and are in the higher orgder of bands, Blackmore did say he wrote "Stargazer" after hearing "Kashmir", but its not second rate,The late/great Dio's vocals are good.

PS The hammond is glorious and Lord is a virtuoso. Blackmore had to work hard to keep up with this guy.

Rainbow was my first concert, as a 10th grader in 1983. Blackmore was amazing. I remember "Jealous Lover" lasting like 20 minutes, his fingers blazing the whole song.

I first got into Deep Purple about the same time, with "Deepest Purple." I went straight from there into the albums, with "Machine Head" being my favorite. I have the original quadraphonic mix on SACD...the mix is great, the sound quality so-so.

Thats cool, I got "Deepest Purple in 1980" and saw them many times from 1985 onwards, first being at "Mudworth" or "Knebworth 85" as its better known, I never did get to see Rainbow as was more into Purple, but seeing them at Knebs was my fave concert moment up untill 2007.

Where abouts did you see Rainbow ??

Deepest Purple was my first Purple album too. Have you seen the 30th Anniversary Edition? It comes with a really good DVD, I got it for Christmas.

I never got to see them live unfortunately. I can remember all the buzz when the MkII lineup reformed though.

LOl was that really you ?? I remember that, was sitting on top a porta loo at the time near the front and side, drenched, cold and pissed off, but Purple made it all worth it. Do you remember the night before in the camp site that The Friday Rock Show was being broadcast from there and Vance was wlking around with Ian Gillan, what other big group would have a member doing that the night before their first show back home in years. Gillan good egg, just a shame he and Blackers couldn't get on .

Here is some of my sad memorabilia and photo's from that wet,cold lovely weekend :)

Hi Leddy,

Yes, well as I'm the only one with the balls to claim such a think I'll say in Print that "I BIGDAN threw that bottle" although it was one of many that were aimed at the Fat Ejut. :o

Wasn't there the night before so I didn't know any of what you said, but yea Gillan is quite the ordinary man in real life, a couple of friends of mine had a few pints with him many years ago and all said he was a very nice guy. Blackmore on the other hand could start a fight with himself in his sleep, he fcuked up every band he was with, present one excepted, but then he is screwing the singer. :o;):lol:

Kind Regards, Danny

Well I love Blackmore for being a dick, thats what makes him, pound for pound I think he has come up with as many classic rock songs than anyone. I have based my entire life dressing in black playing a cream strat, starting fights with myself, being a rt moody Tw*t, married twice, divorced twice kinda guy :unsure::rolleyes::) , only thing is I am not Sha**ing the singer, although I was the flute player, but thats just not Rock'n'Roll <_< and I don't own a castle in Bavaria.

"Child in Time" solo 1993

Ritchie's last show with Purple, I saw him/them about a week ten days before this at the infamous (dvd) "Come Hell or High Water" at Birmingham NEC, this was one of the few moments that Ritchie let rip and forgot his turmoil with the band....Epic stuff.

The thing that bugs me most is a majority of their boots sound like shit and are inaudible.

If you want to hear some decent ones try the boots that were remastered by the DPAS:
