5 stars Deep Purple has been added to this site, this is JUSTICE, PURE JUSTICE!! The very first album I ever bought was "24-carat Purple", soon followed by "Made in Japan" so full circle with this review! This brandnew DVD is a very exciting view on the powerhouse Deep Purple on stage although it's funny to witness that the crowd existed of many very young people, most of them I estimate not older than 12 or 13 years! But Deep Purple performed very well, the exciting chemistry from "Made in Japan" is also on this DVD featuring splendid performances by all members. The track list from the legendary Denmark concert contains all the 'classics' delivering excellent work on the Hammond organ by Jon Lord, lots of fiery and biting guitar soli from an inspired Ritchie Blackmore, an enthousiastic and powerful performance by Ian Gillan and very dynamic support from Glover and Paice as the rhythm-section. In my opinion this Deep Purple was an innovative and pivotal blend of rock, classic and symphonic, they spearheaded the 'heavy progressive rock movement' in the early Seventies. This DVD also includes 3 tracks from the New York 1973 concert and 1 track from the legendary "California jam" concert in 1974 along lots of other extras.
