... If you shop around,i got it for less than £7,essentially a repackaing of the cd and dvd,similair to the recent Status Quo 'Pictures' release.
Sound quality is excellent,band on form,Steve Morse is on fire.the opening two tracks 'Pictures Of Home' & 'Things I Never Said',his solo's simply superb,all the classics are here including the inevitable 'Smoke On The Water' with its interesting intro.
As with many Purple live releases these days ,the big debate will always be Ian Gillan's Vocal performance.Yes its noticable,unmissable actually that he struggles at times,for me, its not enough to not listen to and/or enjoy this release,others may not be able to do likewise.
The Dvd contains several more tracks making up the full concert,well shot,the crowd seem more into it than on previois Montreux releases.
If you can pick up cheap,then its a welcome addition to your collection.

Great concert this, and shot in high quality (both video and audio).
Steve Morse shines as lead guitarist.
Quite a few tracks off their (what was then) new album, but no issues as they are good songs.
The latter tracks are classics of old, eg Smoke on the Water, Black Night and Highway Star, and well performed.
A weird guy appears at the back end of the concert. Looks a bit like Richard Odeyode from the IT Crowd.
I have no idea who he is. Danced like a thing possessed and quite frankly looked a bit of a wally.
He doesn't do a lot to enhance the concert it has to be said................
That aside, excellent!
