Phoenix Rising DVD
A hard rock band that sees Ian Gillan and Roger Glover jump ship-followed soon after by Ritchie Blackmore-would ordinarily sink. But not Deep Purple, who welcomed bassist Glenn Hughes, dazzling guitarist Tommy Bolin and the prodigious pipes of David Coverdale. All three of these Phoenix Rising editions feature two video presentations. Rises over Japan brings you 30 minutes of this band live in Japan in '76; this footage has never been released, not even on bootleg. Getting Tighter is a 90-minute documentary profiling the band's post-Gillan years and featuring a wealth of onstage scenes, backstage footage and new revelations. On the CD: Mk IV renditions of Burn; Lazy; Smoke on the Water; Stormbringer; Love Child , and more!
