After leaving Deep Purple, Ian Gillan owned a motorcycle shop, but quicky he returned on the rock'n roll stage. At first, he made three unsuccessfull jazz-rock albums ("Child in time", "Clear air turbulence" and "Scarabus"), far from the purple land. However, the 80mn long "Live at the Budokan" sum up the best of the area (without the horns and overdubs of the studio recordings)+ 3 revisited Deep Purple classics (child in time, woman from tokyo and... smoke on the water). The musicianship is higher than you could imagine, with the talents of Ray Fenwick (gtr), John Gustafson (bass, and backing vocals, Colin Towns (Keyboards, flute)... A must for inventive hard jazz rock prog

Having made the definitive live in Japan disc with Purple's seminal 'Made In Japan' its hardly a surprise that Gillan would record another live album in the far east.The difference lies in the presentation,whilst Purple's release is quite possibly Heavy Rock at its very best, fury and passion almost on the edge of chaos,yet just in control and no more,this is completely the reverse,an almost understated performance,relaxed to the point they could have being playing in the studio,smooth jazz/rock performed by craftsmen rather than showmen,only Gillan's occasional banter and screams reminding you that its a concert rather than a rehearsal,the Japanase fans reverential.Having said all that its a superb release compiled from the 3 previous studio discs plus 3 Purple classics,excellent renditions of 'Child In Time/Woman From Tokyo & Smoke On The Water' whilst the albums highpoint is the extended version of 'Clear Air Turbulence',a perfect example of this band's Jazz/rock template. 5 stars all the way.

As per usual,superb sound,quality booklet with liner notes,interestingly the booklet states that both 'Budokan Vol 1 & 2',were originally issued in 1977,my original? Japanese import copies both state 1978,the running order on the cd has been altered also, so that it now finishes with the three Purple tracks

Although you owns the first three records (child in time, Clear Torbulence, Scarabus) you can buy this live cd. good versions and sound.
It could be a meeting for e.g. Deep Purple with Jeff beck = Hard rock fussion.
