5.0 out of 5 stars A FINE SECOND COMING, 9 Jun. 2010
This review is from: Ark (Audio CD)
Long awaited, has it been more than a decade already since "Eye Of The Hunter"? In "Ark", Brendan Perry proves all his high level abilities as a composer, musician AND a singer (what a voice!). One man show, yes (he plays and performs almost everything himself) still there is no lack of musicality, inspiration and trance. Less acoustic and more rythym with beautiful and charismatic arrangements - Brendan Perry is a great song writer. (Who can forget the beautifully haunting "Don't Fade Away" - a live only recorded song from the late Dead Can Dance era). He talks about Love and everything that a human being should question, wonder and worry about nowadays, regarding Loneliness, (In)humanity, Isolation, Ignorance, but also politics and universal chaos we have come to (or forced to) live in and find our own way. Straight and simple lyrics with strong melodic lines in melancholy tunes; Brendan is a seeker, a sirious thinker and a poet in his own unique way. Of course this release makes you wanna go back and listen once again to all his previous works (apart Dead Dead Cance, unfortunately not to many). Would like to see how 'Ark' would work in a live concert (hopefully on a forthcoming DVD). Can't really make a pick but, 'Wintersun', 'Utopia' and 'The Devil And The Deep Blue Sea" are really outstanding tracks which carry you away. This album worths a lot of listening and surely grows on the listener. Highly Recommended.

1.0 out of 5 stars NEARLY A RIP OFF!!!, 27 May 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
FOR URIAH HEEP FANS (AND NOT ONLY) - THIS IS NEARLY A RIP OFF, REGARDING THE FACT THAT ALMOST ALL "RARE PROMOTIONAL CLIPS" AND "UNRELEASED FOOTAGE" CONSISTS OF POOR FOOTAGE (AND POOR AUDIO) - WHICH I AM ALMOST SURE HAS BEEN ALREADY USED IN PREVIOUS DVD RELEASES (CLASSIC HEEP, THE OFFICIAL LIVE COLLECTION AND COLLECTOR'S RARITIES) AND PROBABLY IN BETTER(...!) QUALITY. MOST OF THE LIVE PERFORMANCES ARE LIKE A THIRD GENERATION VHS COPY TRANSFER MATERIAL.
I REALLY DON'T UNDERSTAND THE OTHER CUSTOMERS' FINE RATE IN THIS.
IT'S A SHAME THAT STORM BIRD LTD USES THIS WAY TO DECEIVE ANY BUYER. I WOULD HAVE GIVEN FOUR STARS IF IT WAS ONLY FOR THE BOOK (OBVIOUSLY WITH A MUCH LOWER PRICE) WHICH IS WELL WRITTEN AND CONTAINS EXAUSTING DETAIL OF THE BAND'S HISTORY. SO, ONE STAR FOR THE DECEPTION ITSELF.

4.0 out of 5 stars Well, I expected more..., 3 April 2007
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Long awaited release, this double DVD is surely to be treasured -for the obvious reasons- by Gillan/Deep Purple fans - BUT there are some things that will put off the ones who expect a 'real' journey from past to present. The first dvd offers three hours of exausting 'de profundis' Gillan interview and storytelling of 'why' and 'how' with DP and about the rest of the bands he was involved in, while we get comments from the members of DP ( Richie Blackmore's NOT included, of course); We also get a lot of jokes, behind the stage stories and friends' talking about Ian - so far so good. What we DON'T get is archive footage from all these years.

There's only glimpses and shortcuts which prove that there is a lot of material, but for some reason we don't get one single COMPLETE performance from The Javellins, or from Ian Gillan Band or from Gillan days - actually the best chance to include such valuable stuff was this double dvd...

And then the second dvd comes with another three hours of the most recent Deep Purple world tour performances - I have nothing against the DP of the 2005, but this release supposed to be the journey of Ian Gillan from 1966 up to now - so, I was disappointed, because what I really wanted to enjoy is stuff that is rarely seen or broadcasted from the past years. Of course, the whole release is a must for Gillan/DP admirers - but it could be so much better, regarding these six hours...

3.0 out of 5 stars GILLAN HAS A GREAT VOICE, BUT..., 6 April 2002
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Well, Ian Gillan has a great voice,yes - but to my opinion after leaving Deep Purple during the 70's he is being wasting it in mediocre and low class songs ( with a few exceptions ).
I am not a die-hard fan but I admire his voice's quality and his abilities as a singer and I do follow his career listening to his releases.
Still, this performance - videotaped at Central Studios Nottingham ( from Bedrock series,as indicated, but no other info about the concert, no place and no year(?) - has just a few highlights to offer concerning the track-listing ( and most of these highlights refer to songs from the Deep Purple days ).
The band is performing so boring typically, actually 'sleeping on the job' - a complete lack of imagination in guitar solos from Mr.Steve Morris and even worse for the keyboardist Mr. Tommy Eyre ( makes you conjure up the Colin Towns creative improvisations ) - so much goes for the rest of the members, Mr. Chris Glenn on the bass and Mr. Ted McKenna on drums ( who could be anybody playing on duty ). Ah, there is also Mr. Mick O'Donoghue on second guitar and Mr. Dave Lloyd in backing vocals - didn't add much, anyway.
Of course Ian Gillan is great, he gives his best at 'Demon's Eye' and at 'No More Cane On The Brazos' - even better at 'When A Man Cries' ( if it wouldn't be that silly and 'light' keyboard arrangement it would be a most beautiful version ).
Makes you think how come and a singer of this class can stand to collaborate with such musicians - so much for the line-up, anyway.
The track-listing of the performance is as follows:
1.Gut Reaction
2.Demon's Eye
3.Living For The City
4.No More Cane On The Brazos
5.I Thought No
6.When A Blind Man Cries
7.No Good Luck
8.Lucille
9.Smoke On The Water
The filming of the concert is nothing special- the result is you finally realise the absence of any energy from the group and the response from the audience too.
The whole concert lasts ONLY 48 minutes aproximately although on the DVD cover says is 80 -( the rest 32 minutes is samples from other releases by the company ).
I rate this DVD with 3 stars only for the voice of Ian which swings - the rest is disappointment. I wonder why don't they come up with better concerts by Ian Gillan Band ( 'Budokan' for instance - a concert which was surely filmed ).
To paraphrase one song from the track-list,
"At first I thought I should keep this DVD, but then again I THOUGHT NO" - Sorry Ian.
