This DVD features commentary from a group of experts in the field of hard rock. They go through the Purple catalogue album by album critically assessing each one.
The major problem was that their points were illustrated by live videos (the old Granada versions of Speed King, Child In Time & Improv, the Danish "Machine Head" concert, the German TV versions of Highway Star + No No No), presumably because they were unable to secure rights to the original album recordings.
As these videos didn't necessarily correspond with the songs on the album it made talking about certain things pretty pointless. For example the eulogies about Blackmore's brilliant guitar solo on Highway Star on the Machine Head album were illustrated by his rather weaker solo on the early German TV version. Ditto the crashing intro to Speed King and Blackmore's "Child In Time" solo, neither of which were on the sections of the Granada versions they chose to show.
More infuriating still is that there are tantalising glimpses of material not released on DVD (eg the "Pop2" appearance featuring "Wring That Neck" and "Mandrake Root"). Unfortunately these are fleeting and incomplete. Very irritating but it shows at least that these recordings exist in decent quality. Here's hoping that they'll see the light of day soon, since they feature some of Purple's (and especially Blackmore's) finest performances.
All this aside this does make interesting watching, some of the reviewers clearly know their subject (though some clearly don't), and it gives a genuine critical review rather than just one long eulogy. But the point of it all is lost somewhere. The criticism is along the lines of "Machine Head is good, Who Do We Think We Are isn't", and the revelation that Smoke On The Water is a "classic riff".

1.0 out of 5 stars Buyer beware!!! 10 Sep 2005
By A Customer
Despite the title this is another in the now infamous Classic Rock Productions series ( nothing at all to do with the UK magazine of the same name by the way). Because the company have not (or cannot) license the actual visual tracks they use short 10 second clips (which gets round the copyright issues) and intersperse the clips with commentary from various musos that is hardly insightful or really that interesting. I guarantee however much a fan of Purple you are you'll not watch this DVD more than once. Beware spending any money on these releases and avoid the Rainbow, Pink Floyd and Jethro Tull releases( among others) as well!!
