I was disappointed receiving this album from Amazon... :-(.
It was like I came back to Russia in 1990s when the most popular way to buy CDs was to go to the black market, so called 'Gorbushka'...
There is no a booklet inside but just simple cover. When you open it you can see only... black "inlay". No information about the album, songs and the authors... Yes, the track list is placed on the back cover but that is all!

It is not a comment on the music itself - but a word of warning this not a commercially pressed Compact Disc but a burn to order CDR by Amazon, disappointing that this is not mentioned on the product description, and it would explain the comments made about the lack of a proper booklet by other reviewers.

Nobody's Perfect is a live album from Deep Purple, released in 1988 and featuring the much celebrated MKII line up, in the middle of their successful 1980s reunion.

The album contains a selection of material from their then two most recent albums, The House Of Blue Light and Perfect Strangers in addition to all the old favourites from the 70s like 'Space Truckin,' 'Smoke On The Water,' and 'Black Night.'

In terms of performance, the band were really on to something here, Blackmore and Lord add furious extra solos and alternative sections in, Glover and Paice hammer the rhythm home, and give the whole proceedings a different mood than on the 70s live stuff, different but still good and therefor worth an investigative listen at the very least. In addition to the band playing superbly, Ian Gillian's vocals are on top form indeed, in addition to his sense of humour(between and sometimes during songs, like during 'Woman From Tokyo,' for example)

The sound is really clear, fairly punchy and its mixed fairly well. The combination of a good track listing, good sound and good performance is what makes a good live album in my book so I'd definitely recommend this.

There are a hell of a lot of Deep Purple live albums available, but if you liked the band's work in the 80s, then this live album is a definite must buy... and still very worth a listen even if you don't.

This album has been slagged off by Purple fans, Purple members, and even Polydor employees. Even given the ironic title, it's hard to see why this is the case. All I can surmise is that Made in Japan is iconic, and near-perfect, and people just won't allow it to be bettered. And, while that's understandable, it also obscures what is another near-perfect live lp!

That's not to say it's better than MiJ, of course. Even Strangers in the Night and Live & Dangerous are not actually superior to the Purple album, which was probably the first of its kind - hard rock live, and knocking spots off its studio counterparts. But there are tracks on Nobody's Perfect that arguably do exceed their brothers on Made in Japan.

Lazy, for instance, is sharper and fresher in this case. It's fast and breezy, and a complete gas. It also lacks the old intro, so Jon Lord himself may have decided that 'less was more' in 1987. Smoke on the Water also benefits from the more streamlined approach ('though I do miss the great organ solo). Child in Time I would class as on a par with the Made in Japan take; it has as much atmosphere, the rhythm section is inspired, Blackmore is having a blast, and the vocals are breathtaking.

Where MiJ wins hands down is on Highway Star, whose the sense of exhilaration is NOT recaptured on NP, on Strange Kind of Woman (MiJ's version is literally perfect), and on Space Truckin' - the newer version adds nothing to the Machine Head template.

But Nobody's Perfect still has a life of its own. The newer songs sound inspired, and played with the verve of a band hitting its second peak. Gillan had grown as a frontman, and his humour is infectious. Chris Welch at Metal Hammer certainly appreciated this album, awarding it 5 stars. I'm doing the same!
