Rare Deep Purple Footage Surfaces
Purple will release "Phoenix Rising", a two-hour-plus documentary set focusing on the band's time with David Coverdale, Glenn Hughes and Tommy Bolin, on June 28. The disc includes a 90-minute documentary featuring extensive interviews with keyboardist Jon Lord and bassist Hughes, as well as archival footage of a young Coverdale and guitarist Bolin, who replaced Ritchie Blackmore on 1975's "Come Taste The Band" the group's short-lived "Mark 4" lineup. But the centerpiece of the set is "Rises Over Japan", 30 minutes of the Coverdale/Lord/Bolin/Hughes/Paice lineup performing "Burn", "Getting Tighter", "Love Child", "Smoke On The Water", "Lazy", "Homeward Strut", "You Keep On Moving" and "Stormbringer". This onstage footage from Japan is so rare the bootleg community has not even seen it. "Phoenix Rising" will be released on DVD, Blu-ray, and in a two-disc DVD/CD package featuring an audio disc of the "Rises Over Japan" tracks. Thanks for the report to Peter Hodgson, Gibson.com.
