Deep Purple: Phoenix Rising

 (1975-2011)

Deep Purple: Phoenix Rising Blu-ray delivers stunning video and audio in this exceptional Blu-ray release

RISES OVER JAPAN: 30 minute-long live footage filmed in 16mm in Japan, restored in HD. Never before released, not even on bootlegs. Originally planned to be included in a Deep Purple film the short movie was never released after Tommy Bolin’s death. If it wasn’t known the show is from 1976.
GETTING TIGHTER: The full length 90-minute documentary of the story behind Deep Purple after Ian Gillan and Roger Glover’s departures. Jon Lord and Glenn Hughes tell the story of the "post Gillan" years, through never before seen live images, backstage footage, never before told stories and original video material collected through years of hard work.
Tracklisting 1. Burn 2. Getting Tighter 3. Love Child 4. Smoke On The Water 5. Lazy 6. Homeward Strut 7. You Keep On Moving 8. Stormbringer

Deep Purple: Phoenix Rising Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Deep Purple: Phoenix Rising arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of Eagle Rock Entertainment. The 30-minute concert from The Budokan Hall is presented in an aspect ratio of 1.33:1, while the documentary film Gettin' Tighter is presented in an aspect ratio of 1.78:1. Both are encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted 1080p transfers.

The newly restored concert looks very good. Even though the majority of the footage is rather dark, the close-ups convey surprisingly good detail and clarity. Even a few of the panoramic shots look good, though it is clear that one of the cameras is rather poorly positioned. Color reproduction is also as strong as it can be. The documentary is rather difficult to evaluate as the quality of the archival footage varies a lot, but the original content certainly looks fine. (Note: This is a Region-Free Blu-ray disc. Therefore, you will be able to play it on your PS3 or SA regardless of your geographical location).


Deep Purple: Phoenix Rising Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

There are two audio tracks on this Blu-ray disc: DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 and DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0. For the record, Eagle Rock Entertainment have provided optional English, French, German, and Spanish subtitles for the documentary film.

The concert sounds great with the DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track, and I am convinced that a lot of older fans of Deep Purple will be thoroughly impressed with it. The guitar solos, Jon Lord's keyboard solos, and especially David Coverdale's vocals sound incredibly crisp and lush. There is also a surprisingly decent range of nuanced dynamics, proving that these types of legendary concerts could be given a new life if they are properly remastered and brought to Blu-ray. Indeed, very impressive.

The documentary film comes with a DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 track. Predictably, the dialog is crisp, clean, stable, and very easy to follow. The archival footage has been optimized as best as possible.
