Deep Purple - In Concert With The London Symphony Orchestra (1999) Retail CD
Rock & Roll
This double-CD set, recorded at the Royal Albert Hall in late 1999, is best thought of as an encapsulation of the inevitable. Deep Purple were the first band to note that heavy metal and classical music shared a certain deluded grandeur and attempted to combine the two. While what resulted--specifically, their "Concerto For Group & Orchestra"--was pretty fearful stuff, it did, for better or for worse, pave the way for a generation of classically influenced heavy rock bands: King Crimson, Yes and Queen, among others. "Concerto" features here, played for the first time in years, alongside a bunchmore… of the Purple's more genteel songs. Ian Gillan, who can still do a creditable impression of a bomber revving for takeoff, shares vocals with Ronnie James Dio and Sam Brown. The all-hands-on-deck encore of "Smoke On The Water" is included as a CD video, confirming that it all looked, on the night, as engagingly preposterous as it sounded. --Andrew Mueller
