Four volume set covering three full length Deep Purple concerts, with highlights of a fourth, plus a documentary tracing the history of the band from the early days through to the arrival of guitarist Steve Morse. The concert footage covers dates in India, South Korea, Australia and the U.K. over a seven year period.

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Deep Purple's Around The World Live DVD is an absolutely brilliant set for any sort of Deep Purple fan who doesn't yet own the constituent parts that make up the set. Deep Purple are often more remembered for their 70s output and this set is a welcome release for shedding a little more light on the band's excellent and underrated 00s/90's era.

Around The World Live contains their Platinum Selling 1999 concert DVD Total Abandon Live In Australia, as well as 1995's Bombay Calling with around half of 1995's Live In Seoul as bonus tracks and finally Live At The NEC England from 2002, which was the legendary farewell show for original keyboard player Jon Lord.

In addition to three and a half concert films, the set features a feature length documentary called Access All Areas, which largely covers the Steve Morse era of the band, with some talk of the band's history, some comedy interviews with Australian fans and footage from around the world.

The documentary is interesting but flawed, it doesn't have a strong narrative and while there are interesting sections, it flows badly and is more of a disjointed collection of sections rather than a well made complete documentary. It is certainly worth a watch but perhaps not worth getting the whole set over if you already own the concerts separately.

The DVD is housed in a fancy thick book style box, with linear notes and photos on glossy pages stuck into the actual box.

The actual concerts are all great; with good sound and fairly competent camera work and editing, with enthusiastic crowds and great solos from most members, especially the superb Total Abandon which is held in very high regard by most Purple fans.

A cracking 4DVD set of Deep Purple in concert, from Bombay, Seoul, Melbourne, and the NEC.
The set also contains the documentary ACCESS ALL AREAS, a behind the scenes look of the band on tour.
A must have for any fans of the band, the set lists include a few of the classic tracks by DP, HIGHWAY STAR, WHEN A BLIND MAN CRIES, WOMAN FROM TOKYO, TED THE MECHANIC, FIREBALL, SMOKE ON THE WATER, SPEED KING, PERFECT STRANGERS the list goes on and on.
The booklet that is with the set is well worth a read too.
Give yourself a treat and buy it!!!!!

Format: DVD
Fantastic value, 4 discs, 4 complete concerts, 8 songs from a Seoul concert as a bonus on disc 1 and an "acccess all areas" documentary. The whole lot is a mind numbing 9 hours long. There's also a 31 page booklet about the band with a load of concert and non concert photographs. What more could you want? The band are on fire throughout and have been rejuvenated by Steve Morse. If you're not a Deep Purple fan, you will be after watching these concerts.

By M. J. Finch on 9 Sept. 2014
Format: DVD
Am a life long fan and have more vinyl, CD and DVD's than any other artist, probably exceed a hundred including solo projects so they're my favourite and my only observation is the focus in their live recordings with Machine Head. Yes, it's a great album, of course, one of the Top 20 of all time - or is that In Rock or both - dunno, but for example, Bombay Calling has virtually all the MH tracks and recently I got an American bootleg where they play the entire record.

We're all different but I can't be alone, top and tail the set with Highway Star and Smoke fine, with some In Rock or Perfect Strangers in the middle but how about more of the new stuff on record. Saw Purple at Camden last year and they're still finding bits of the roof to this day, then we got five songs from Now What, at Brixton on the Purpendicular tour they played nine of the songs, I think. Anyway, personal preference, happy to see them and making the most of it.

Format: DVD
Yes there is. Very nice 4 DVD compilation of 1995-2002 material featuring Mr. Morse on guitar. Worths getting it for Maybe I'm a Leo, Bloodsucker, Mary Long, as well as for the Battle rages on and Abandon material alone. Add to that another 7-8 hours of material and you've got a real winner. Minus one star for having most of the standard songs played over and over again, i.e. in all 4 concerts. Nevertheless, a must for all Purple fans! Add to that the co-existence of Lord and Airey on NEC 2002. Buy it ;-)
