3.0 out of 5 stars Sorry Ian, you're time is about up, 9 Dec. 2011
I bought the concert dvd despite criticism of Gillan's voice. When you play the opening tune, however, you'll understand that the criticism is warranted - unfortunately. I respect Gillan and all those his age that still love to perform and want to soldier on - especially considering Deep Purple remains a popular touring band. But the man is 66 years old. I didn't buy this expecting a knock out vocal performance but I naively thought the critics are too tough and expect to much. Well, maybe they still are but the vocals were even weaker than I expected. Very thin but clearly he's trying. The band is obviously great but its going to be hard to play this repeatedly when the vocals borderline on bothersome. If you want a satisfying Gillian performance, where everyone is firing on all cylinders, check out DP's 1996 Montreux dvd instead.

4.0 out of 5 stars If you like the Some Girls album, you'll like the Blu more, 9 Dec. 2011
I've got mixed feelings about the Some Girls material from the album but generally like it and was curious enough to buy the Blu-ray. If you like the album, I believe you'll really like the Blu-ray concert. The band was tight, Mick's vocals were especially strong in my opinion and the performance was very spirited and enjoyable to watch. There was a lot of passion put into the Some Girls material and was played very well. I enjoyed the Some Girls material on the Blu-ray even more than the studio album. The audio was clear and you could hear all the guitars even when Mick was playing. The video is more than serviceable. A little grainy? Sure, but so what. It was 1978.
