Deep Purple ...To the Rising Sun In Tokyo 180g 3LP
Live Music From "NOW What?! Tour On 180g Vinyl 3LP!
One of the legendary names of rock music history, Deep Purple are for many the
first band who contributed forming the sounds and aesthetic of hard rock. A
definition often rejected by the band who has proudly underlined how much their
music has been the free melting pot of rock and roll, jazz, funk and orchestral
Deep Purple is certainly an iconic band that left a mark on the seventies
aesthetic with some of the most influential albums ever released in rock music
and with what is considered to be one of the most influential live albums ever -
“Made in Japan”, recorded over two nights at Tokyo’s Budokan Hall during the
band’s first tour in Japan in 1972.
With the release of their recent studio album “NOW What?!”, the band again
managed to top the charts worldwide. Deep Purple remains one of the most
important names in rock history.
If Wacken shows Deep Purple’s performance in front of a huge rock audience,
playing as if they had to leave all their habits behind, the Tokyo show, Nippon
Budokan, Tokyo in April 2014, presents Deep Purple completely at ease with their
history and themselves.
On the very same venue where the band has written rock history with the album
“Made In Japan”, Deep Purple went on stage without nostalgia and with the
attitude of a band that is physically led by the music, making playing a perfect
show look as the most natural thing one could do. Song after song, Purple play a
flawless show going back and forth in time. Deep Purple’s many sides are at
their best here: the energy but also the groove, the great solo moments by Don
Airey and Steve Morse. The soft sides and their energetic heavy counterparts.
Recorded by a top mobile studio, the show offers one of the most magical
performances of the NOW What?! tour.
Every member of the band is in fantastic form, the band being strong from a full
tour together, and the performance seems to be driving the band through the song
like if audience and band were suspended in time.
