  1. These are not audiencerecordings, but soundboard recordings from Swiss FM-radiobroadcast. This a great show with Satriani on guitar, playing faster and more inspired than Ritchie Blackmore did on the same tour. He showed to be superior to his successor Steve Morse. First liveversions of Pictures of Home and When a Blind Man Cries. This is essential for Deep Purplefans!

    1. I beg to differ. Satriani playing faster than Blackmore, maybe, playing more inspired, I don’t think so. Just check out how Blackmore developed a little phrase he would play in “Black night” in Mannheim and then Stuttgart in 1993. After Stuttgart that little phrase disappeared again and he played something else. That was spontaneous. Satriani obviously received the Stuttgart recording to get fit for the Japanese tour in December 1993. That little phrase appeared there each night the way Blackmore played it. Blackmore’s and Lord’s spontaneity was the essence of Purple and it was eroded after Blackmore left. Satriani and Morse are certainly more consistent than Blackmore, I’ll give you that. But I can still not get my head around the fact that the band maintains in interviews that the band are supposedly so spontaneous in the Morse era, while most of that disappeared rather quickly. Rant over, sorry. Err, no this is not essential for me as a Purple-with-Blackmore fan. You might never have guessed, 🙂 But those are FM recordings, true, all lacking the set opener for whatever weird reason. It was never transmitted I suppose.

  2. Thank you very much for returning Deep Purple to Purple Hippies 🙂
    Much appreciate!!!

  3. Many thanks… this will replace a much shorter version of the show that i have… as for the Blackmore/Satriani debate.. yes Satriani is more clinical with his playing, but blackmore (when at his best) had more feeling…. just my opinion…
