this box is a great idea and a nice place to start if you want to check out the Steve Morse era of Deep Purple. While the idea is great, the actual execution is not THAT great. The production quality varies, and two of the gigs have been released earlier. this is peculiar, especially as Purple has filmed alot of gigs in this period that have never been released.
however, this is probably not aimed at die hard fans who already own all releases. Keeping this fact in mind, it is a good place to start if you want to see why Deep Purple is still a superb band. Bombay 1995 is the first major tour Morse did with purple, and the band is already tight. the picture and audio quality is not perfect, but it's still a great document. The concert from australia is very well produced and therefore a joy to watch. The third concert, from Jon Lord's farwell tour, is a real gem. musically, this is one of the, if not the, best purple concerts available on dvd. The band is really fireing, and that fact that it features two keyboard players adds to the excitement. the audio track is great, but the picture is sadly sometimes not very good. the final disc is a documentary which is always nice to watch. together with the 2002 concert, this has never been released, which means alot of fans will have to pick up the box anyway! but at 14,99 - who can complain. 5 stars for the idea of releasing a purple dvd box. 5 stars for the musical content. anything from 3 - 5 stars on the production
