Discussion about Ritchie Blackmore's Rainbow - Live In Japan
I love this release! Don't get me wrong it's quite flawed. It appears to be from a Japanese PPV. It's blurry (even for being shot on video tape), even slightly pixelated at times. Though quite watchable, it can be light on detail. Luckily it's a source issue and not a generational issue. Especially in this HD age. More importantly the sound... Good, not great. Sound matches the picture in a way. It's a bit flat with lack of instrument separation. Like it was recorded from a VHS source. It needs a fair amount of EQ on the Home Theater to sound really good. So why do I love this release then? Because once you've dialed in the sound as best you can and your "used" to the picture. Which does not take long... Ritchie and Band play their asses off!! The setlist and performance are inspired!! Look Ritchie could "call it in" at times. Especially at this, the end of Rainbow's first run. Not here! Whether they knew it was a PPV? Or, the crowd's energy? Or, playing with a Japanese symphony? This DVD is well worth it and a joy to watch and hear the Master and his band at work.
