These are great trainers. Brilliant for skateboarding as they have a reinforced heel. They are far more robust than other vans products authentic/Ferris etc. The sole is really spongy and they are so comfortable. They are not as lightweight as other Vans but for stronger. The colour is fantastic and the fit perfect. Would recommend them to any skater. So good I'm going to buy another pair. No wonder they were voted the best skate shoe of the last 20 years. Well pleased.

5.0 out of 5 stars MAGICAL, 16 Jan. 2015

This review is from: Copenhagen 1972 (Audio CD)
A superb gig. In 1972 Purple were at there peak even with all the internal turmoil. When they took the stage something magical happened. The tracks on hear have been released live in different forms on various albums culminating in the release of the deluxe version of Made In Japan. Purples stage set remains pretty much unchanged except for encores for a few years. However I've never known a band to make the same songs have a different feel and emotion. They were not a band just to go through the motions night after night. Different solos drum patterns between song interplay. Strange Kind Of Woman is never the same. Musicians at the top of their game. Faultless. Can't wait for Long beach 1971. Magical. Packaging leaves a lot to be desired bonus material worth having.

A great mix of the great man's last gig with Mark 3 Purple. Even with Glenn Hughes persistent whooping and nonsense. Can't wait for the 5th release in the series. Still a shame about the packaging.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another great release let down by the packaging, 31 Oct. 2014

Another great release let down by the packaging. Interesting show Burn is superb. The rest of the gig bubbles along nicely. You can hear that Blackmore has other ideas in his mind but that does not detract from his performance. Still irritates me that certain tunes are introduced as from Made In Japan and I don't think I'll ever get used to Hughes squealing. However if you a fan it's worth getting.Hope the future releases in this series offers up new material.

Took delivery of this on Tuesday. After spending the best part of £80 was wondering if it was money well spent. Having got the original vinyl copy/1st issue cd/remastered double album/21st anniversary triple cd. How many copies do you need.
We all know the tracks and all know the importance of their release and the absolute jaw dropping efficiency of Deep Purple on those 3 nights. Strange Kind Of Woman from the 3rd night is worth the £80 quid alone.
The mix on these is absolutely stunning. I've been comparing all 3 cd versions over the past 2 days. Played through a Quad system. The first thing is the separation of all instruments . Yes having Blackmore on the right and Lord on the left as the audience hears it is a must. What really stands out is the phenomenal work of Paice and Glover. The kick drum from Paice bass runs from Glover are right up there in the mix yet do no detract from Blackmore and Lords performance. Gillian is on fire and is really well placed. You can even hear him running around
The bongos on space trucking and lazy are in there too.
Each scratch of Blackmores pick as he runs it down those strings is there. It's a fantastic tribute to them as musicians at their peak live. What let's th whole thing down is the book it could have been so much better 60 odd pages of quotes and reused photos what we're they thinking. The DVD is great even though the bulk of it has since been shown on BBC 4. The box and other bits are nice additions. But this is all about the music 42 years on I was 6 when this came out and have listened to it since the age of 13. I've never heard a better live album. Even Ritchie messing up Smoke On The Water (twice) cannot detract from the sheer force of this band.
Again the mix is incredible. If you close you eyes you can almost transport yourself there. £80 well spent. If you can't afford it just buy the standard version. History in the making.

This is an excellent accompaniment to the first book but from another perspective. I would recommend both books to anyone. Very quick and easy one lie solutions to help you through those dark moments

What a contrast not a growl to be heard. Listen to this blind and you would never think it was the mighty opeth. A staggering array of depth in in writing and how a band can go to to new levels and genres sit down relax and let the music take you. The most accessible album that opeth have done. Not just for the death brigade in fact this is the one album they may shun. A progressive rock masterclass

I love this band another classic. You even get an iron maiden cover. The musicianship is sublime. The way they goo from full on heavy crunching chords and riffs to general quiet passages never ceases to amaze. You need this band in your life
