Disappointed

"I really thought I will be able to see the band in action.. instead you get 5 guys who keep coming in to give their criticism or opinions..At the end of the DVD session, I felt like tthrowing it in the bin. I would at least would have appreciated at least one song played full. Who needs their opinions.. I know deep Purple.. I don't need the 5 individuals giving me their opinions. The music world have its ups and down. no matter what .. these musicians have given us their work. appreciate and enjoy.

Made in Japan... What a hoax!!!

"I guess I shuould've known this was just too good to be true...

I mean; The legendary, all time greatest live album was actually being filmed?!!

Not so.

This is just more hogwash from those "experts" that made those crappy "Critical review" and "Inside..." series earlier on.

No interviews of the bandmembers, no authorisation from the band whatsoever, but the most embarassing thing of all;

No live footage that hasn't allready been released elsewhere.

The footage included on this one, is either from the "Live in Copenhagen/Scandinavian nights", "Doing their thing" or "Masters from the vaults". The only footage that may appear "new" to some, is Live footage from New York in 1973.

That is, if you only have seen the VHS-verson of scandinavian nights (Live in Copenhagen). On the later DVD-versons of this, all the New York Footage is included.

I will strongly advice any DP-fan to steer away from this hoax, because it is sertainly not what it appears to be!

And finally, if this harsh critique isn't enough for you;

They don't even spend the time entirely on the Made in Japan album, but starts of with the "concerto..." and move on cronologically from there.

By far the worst, unauthorised product i have EVER seen with the name Deep Purple on it!!!

Or let me rephrase that:
By far the worst, unauthorised product i have EVER seen. PERIOD.

Don't support this bunch of idiots any more, by buying their produckts!"
Do Not Buy!!!!!!

"Talk about a con job. This dvd is garbage! All this waste of money dvd does is make you mad that you bought it. It's a few guys that I've never heard of talking about how Deep Purple are this or that. This dvd will be thrown in the garbage very soon. After I use it for awhile as a coaster for my beer I'll maybe take it outside in the backyard and have some target practice with my bb gun just to relieve some frustration.
The sad thing is I was so exicited thinking I was getting Made in Japan on dvd.

Don't waste your money. This one is a real turkey.

"What a disappointment. I thought that this DVD would be the concert version of the Made in Japan album (CD). Instead, the first 35 minutes (of a 60 minute DVD) are a summary of all the albums of Deep Purple Mark II that lead up to the Made in Japan album. When the four narrators finally get around to discussing the Made in Japan album, they use concert footage from previous concerts (filmed in the US, Germany, and elsewhere) to illustrate their point about a certain song. The only Japanese footage included in this marginal DVD are a few cutaways of the Japanese crowd at a concert. And we don't really know if this footage is from the Deep Purple concert! Except for these few crowd shots, THERE IS NO CONCERT FOOTAGE OF DEEP PURPLE'S CONCERTS IN JAPAN ON THIS DVD. I would have given this DVD zero stars, but there is no mechanism on this review in which to do so."
