Rumours of such film have persisted for years, and now their existence has been verified. The Highway Star is hoping to show stills from the footage shortly. The latter was previously released as Rises Over Japan. It is hoped that all Highway Star - Deep Purple - Made In Japan surviving tracks from this show can be included with the remastered Come Taste The Highway Star - Deep Purple - Made In Japan planned for You can follow comment on this post through the RSS 2.
You can leave a comment below, or trackback from your own site. If it is true, this is the most important material of the history of Deep Purple. This is really discovery of decade for whole Deep Purple history. I as well as the other DP fans believed that there is somewhere a video footage from Highway Star - Deep Purple - Made In Japan Japan tour.
I also hope that there is more footage like this one lieing around somewhere. Here is a footage that i found on the youtube that could interesting for History, Hits, Highlghts. The whole Japan tour was great, and I adore it too. But in my opinion which tour was the greatest in sound, and of course in singing was there tour.
The whole tour was magnificant, but unfortunately there are no official releases from that year, not a single one. Have anybody noticed that conclusion. Good question Russ I persume that the color of video footage is going to be similar to the color of the picture from the front cover of Made In Japan.
But — what about quality? Only one camera? Shots from far away or from stage? We will see. Anything is better than nothing. It was said on deeppurple. This is the first one. All other Moments - Ayumi Hamasaki - A Best 2 -White- amterial is much known.
Hope there will be more. Or what about the Boblingen scence, which is known? They should put the whole 26 minutes on the DVD!
Just put some music underneath Highway Star - Deep Purple - Made In Japan video! Remember the silent 8mm video from the Cal Jam, with the overdubb sound? They should to the same thing. Everybody would want this to happen, some of the fans have been waiting for more than 30 years!!! I agree with Scott and really hope that now and in the future there will be complete editions of whatever will be officially published.
We all already have quite a massive dvd collection of the band. It would be great to see though. Bruce did speak the truth really. When Bruce said there was nothing that might have been true to a point.
Was it done with permission at the time? Maybe not. So the band might not really have known about this footage. And as Somethings Got To Give - Beastie Boys - Check Your Head Heinz said…how many cameras were there? If there were more than one that kind of implies there might have been permission. I agree they should just release all of the bits that are too short to match to the music in one long 26 min clip.
Us fans can match it up later!! I question how would be the video quality…probably very poor… but a good news indeed…. There is a chance the quality could be poor. I hope not. It is film stock.
I have shot super8 myself with great results. As long as your camera is quality you can achieve some really nice stuff. The only thing you can really count on is it will be more grainy than 16mm or 35mm. But I have seen some stuff over 30 years old that was great. This one has been in the works for just about that long. Has anyone thought to ask which one of the 3 Highway Stars is on the 8mm and which of the other tracks is from which nights as MIJ was a comp of tracks off the 3 nights.
Dunno if they recorded the whole Blue Haze - Rusty Wier - Dont It Make You Wanna Dance?. I might actually have the the 3 or 4 songs and the Gillan interview that was broadcasted on an old VHS. Some nice little bits of footage.
Then you can just copy it to your computer and upload it to YT if thats what you want to do with it. They have to do something with the rest of the film, I mean release it somehow!
They should fix it up for a DVD thats rare and very unvuable film, like with Inglewoodwhich I believe with work could be fixed atleast so you dont get a headache halfway through.
And Hamburg inand I actually put up film of Speed King from the First British Rock Meeting in Speyer, Germany in September although it was removed when my account was suspended sometime last week without notice. Its colour and pro-shot. If the rest of the concert was found it could be released officially on DVD.
Theres 40 seconds of Speed King on youtube, and the guy is selling the whole film and DVD through email. The big mystery of that video is the pro-shot colour Highway Star at the end. My guess is the concert from Stuttgart Was Braucht So A Schilehrer No - Duo Fenneberg-Moser - Bubi, Bubi, Noch Einmal (Und Andere Saftige G Februarybut I cant be too sure.
Would anyone know if they have a broadcast copy from TV at least or the station that broadcast it? Name required. Email will not be published required.
