Blackmore Ends On A High,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Paris 1975 (Audio CD)
Just took ownership of this & listened to it straight through (except the interview)
So what have we got:
Sound: Not bad quality but not enough "oomph" on the bottom end for my tastes. Sounded a bit weedy in places.
Musicianship: As repeated elsewhere, this was Blackmore's last gig with DP until the reunion. Sounds like he was proving what a loss he'd be as he is on fire. Mind you, so are Lord & Paice. Never been that much of a fan of Coverdale this era but thought he improved with Whitesnake.
Hughes is a better singer IMHO but find his bass too low in the mix to form an opinion.
Setlist: Excellent. don't let the track list on the cover fool you. A lot of the numbers here feature either long jams or medleys (Lazy & the Mule make an appearance amongst others)
Packaging: A disgrace. A single tray for 2 discs? Looks like someone is still believing the hype about CDs being indestructible.
Worth £8.00? Oh yes. Will probably continue to buy these as hey are released
