5 stars An elegant night with Deep Purple

This album is a luxury. From track 1 to track 6, there is an introdution with special guests, like Ronnie James Dio. From

the song number 4, it begins to heat the atmosphere. The first great hit is "Wring that neck" by "Deep Purple jazz big

band" (=D).

The next theme, "Pictures of home" is the first 'strong plate'. The orchestra introduces the song. And

then, Deep Purple appears in full splendour.

The CD2 begins with a masterpiece: the "Concerto for group and

orchestra". The three movements are from 'another planet'. This new edition of the concerto give us the masterpiece

but with modern sound. Excellent.

"Ted the Mechanic" and "Sometimes I feel like screaming" are already classic

Deep Purple's songs. With the orchestra... just imagine...! "Watching the sky" sounds good... And the hymn ("Smoke

on the water") finishes this album. It sounds 'pompous', powerful, emotional...

The strings, brass section, woods,

percussion... the drums, bass, guitar, keys, vocals... a great band...

The "Concerto..." makes of this live album, a

masterpiece of proto-prog rock, and prog-rock too.

4.95 stars...
