Product Description

Many consider the vintage Mk2 Deep Purple line-up of Ritchie Blackmore on guitar, lead singer Ian Gillan, bassist Roger Glover on bass, the late, great Jon Lord on keyboards and the drumming of Ian Paice, to be the near definitive version of this classic British rock institution. It was this line-up that got back together " for a third and last time " to tour and record for their 25th Anniversary in 1993. Released in July 1993, The Battle Rages On features some classic, ballsy hard rock, including the single Anya. Despite playing what many consider to be some of their best ever shows in mainland Europe, especially during a lengthy 13 date German tour, Blackmore dropped the bombshell midway through the European leg that these would his last concerts with the band, making this a unique document of this remarkable band.

2 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Ken. Yorkshire. on 4 May 2014
Format: Audio CD
Battle Rages On is a 5 star album, certainly one of my top 5 Purple albums, but I've knocked a star off for the live album, which is an edit of 2 live concerts. The German show is a lot better than the Birmingham show, with every member playing to a far higher standard. Blackmore doesn't come on to the stage till half way through Highway Star, obviously in a bad temper, and that sets the mood for the whole NEC set. So, it would have been a better album by just using said German concert for the whole album.
So, the only reason for most of us old Purple fans to buy this again, is if it's been remastered, so why doesn't it say here.

Yes, Deep Purple has still got it. This is a great album and Anya is one of my all-time favourite tracks, alongside Highway Star. I recommend anyone to buy it.

I like the remastering 22 Mar. 2015
By Scung - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I always thought the sound quality on the original release was weak. The remastering on this HNE recording is and up grade. The remastering brings this music back to life. Bought this double CD for The Battle Rages On and I'm loving it more now than ever all because of the remastering.It's also nice to have the live disc as a bonus.If you love DP up grade to this one.
