A new Deep Purple DVD will be released soon called Rises Over Japan. This is pro-shot footage from the Budokan, Tokyo on December 15th, 1975
The Chronicles Of Led Zeppelin is issuing Heavy Zeppelin. Containing the poor sounding February 10th, 1975 Maryland tape, this is the first time this show has been issued on silver.
The MK4 Bolin Purple footage has been released before on silver DVD as I have a title on the Crime Crow Productions label titled “16 Gold Bars” which I picked up 2-3 months ago. It has the same 5 songs as reported to be on the “Rises Over Japan” title. The Bolin footage on the 16 Bars release is 30 minutes in length and is a little dark and is several gens removed from the master as the faces get fuzzy on distance shots and the colored stage lights bloom a little but still very enjoyable to see Tommy Bolin Purple footage…The 16 Bars title also has very good footage with 4 songs (MKII) from July 14th, 1970 Granada TV, Two songs (MK2)from the POP2 French show October 8, 1970 in watchable quality, 2 songs (MK2)from Hofstra U May 27th 1973 in watchable quality, two songs (MK1)from Playboy After Dark October 23, 1968 in watchable quality, and three bonus songs (MK2) with no date which look like lip sinc’d promo videos…All in all a very nice selection of early 70’s Purple in decent quality…Highly recommended
Deep Purple with Tommy Bolin pro shot looks interesting and might have to pick this one up.
