Movie Reviews

Okay, but a little dated.
11/17/2003
(3 out of 5 stars)

"I own this in the VHS version that is quite a few years older. This is nice because you get some interviews with the elusive Blackmore, and there iw a nice version of "Hush." However, they all take themselves a littel too seriously, and to hear Joe Lynn Turner talk about making his own footsteps in the group, (He was fired after only one album and tour) is in retrospect, rather funny.

There are some nice clips on this, but you can get more on the Machine Head DVD which catches a lot more of the creative process and does, in fact, have better footage. A nice primer on Deep Purple, but nothing outstanding."
