3.0 out of 5 stars Deep Purple Knebworh '85, 17 Oct. 2005
This review is from: In the Absence of Pink: Knebworth 1985 (Audio CD)
Its been 12 years since Purple mkII broke up, but now the're back! The band made their re-union intentions clear with the studio LP Perfect Strangers, which is best described as majestic.
The same can't quite be said about this offering, though emotional as it is (first gig in uk for ages) Purple seem to struggle a little with the bad weather & sound, the latter mainly caused by some locals who wanted the group turned down which is quite evident (lazy riff a bit out of sync.) But the band stick to the job in hand and yes, its a little scrappy in places and no, it's not quite Made in Japan, but it does offer exciting listening. The new numbers slot into the set quite comfortably and a cracking Speed King sets up the encores nicely.
The main disappointment is the sound mixed for audio which by BBC standards, are a let down. The BBC erased a couple of numbers from the original recording which resulted in some ugly editing after Perfect Strangers. However, the set is still long enough for 2 discs which represents great value and a place in your collction.
