I was over on the Deep Purple website and found myself looking at all the various lineups that Deep Purple has had over the years. Which was your favorite lineup? I'm going with the following:
Deep Purple Mark IIa (June 1969 - 30 June 1973)
1. Ritchie Blackmore (guitar)
2. Ian Gillan (vocals)
3. Roger Glover (bass)
4. Jon Lord (keyboards)
5. Ian Paice (drums)

Never saw the original lineup but loved songs like Hard Road and Kentucky Woman from Book of Taliesan( sp???, never knew what the name meant until we went to Frank LLoyd Wright's Arizona retreat)

However I have seen Mkll several times and that would be the definitive Deep Purple.

I saw Joe a few years ago at a gig at Jaxx, He said he and Richie had talked about doing a rainbow
reunion, but then Richie went with the Blackmore's Night stuff.

Gotta follow the muse.

The Machine Head line-up is my fave Deep Purple. I have machine head on DVD-audio 5.1 surround and it
is great. It also has a few bonus videos on it.

Dio always does a rew rainbow cuts in his sets these days.

I love Steve Morse but I"d rather hear Richie playing his own stuff.

Peace
John

Mk. II is the line-up for me; all of the various line-ups through the years have had their moments...close second would be the David Coverdale Burn era. Good stuff.

Mark II is probably my favorite also. A lot of their classic material and sound.

I'm a HUGE Tommy Bolin fan and the Mark IV with he and Hughes was certainly more funkier than the other lineups. Tommy's hard rock playing is probably my least favorite style for his ability. He was a fantastic jazz and acoustic player, which I prefer when it comes to Tommy. His, and other member's, drug usage I believe prevented them not only from continuing as a group but also really growing into a sound of their own. The drugs also prevented them from performing consistently on stage.

And, of course, there's the Coverdale factor. I'd rather have my fingernails forcibly removed with pliers than to listen to that screecher. It's supposed to be "singing" David, not screaming.

Damn you are lucky! Let us know how the show was. Uli/Schenker all in one night should be a treat. As long as Uli doesn't sing too much.

Ian Paice is actually the only one of them who has never left; been there since the beginning in '68...how's that for job loyalty?

I saw them recently and I was amazed that Ian Paice hasn't slowed down at all. Let's be honest it isn't easy at that age to flail yours arms all night long. Steve Morse has really added to the bands sound and assisted in keeping it fresh. Suprised to read it was his 10th year in the band.

As for the Rainbow Reunion, why not have all the different lineups? Each was unique in its own way. Except leave Graham Bonnet at home. Why did anybody ever think this guy could sing? He has stayed around with one band or another for 30 years and he was never good to begin with. All because Blackmore had him on an album and then dumped him mid-tour.

The first four Rainbow albums are great. The drums on the live album "On Stage" always sounded huge when played loud!

The 69-73 line is the one. The current also is very good too. It is the longest any Deep Purple line up has been together. They have relesed some DVD's over the last few years I do recommend,Perihelion,New LIve and Rare,Australian 99,and Come Hell or High Water.
The last one there ,hell or high water is kind of funnny. It was Blackmores last tour,maybe last show, with the band and he does not show on stage for about the first min or two of the opening song Highway Star, and when he does he ends up throwing a glass of water on one of the camera men.He was probably inone of his moods that he has been for the last 30yrs or so. Then in the interviews with the band about the show the are pretty much dogging on Blackmore. I get a kick out of it. I think Ritchie is one of the great guitar players ever and very underrated, but I guess he is a royal pain in the ass.
The Perihelion dvd is a concert that was recorded in Florida a few years ago with current line up and is very good.
The lineup with Coverdale on vocals and Hughes on bass was decent for the"Burn" album
which has a few strong tracks on it. The line up with Tommy Bolin was very different. Not bad, but not really Deep Purple. Tommy is one of those guitar players who are truly underrated also. Check out some of his solo stuff. He has two Studio Releases, Teaser and Private eyes. They are are pretty solid. But his web site over the last 6-7 yrs have released a bunch of live and rare stuff which really shows his strength. I recommend Live at Ebbets Field 1974 and the song Crazed Fandango which really smokes. Unfortunatley he died at a young age.

Is "Made In Japan" on video or DVD? There is a scene in the movie Twister where a guy is watching a video performance of "Sweet Child In Time" and definitely is the Made In Japan Version playing.
