Nobody's Perfect Review

by Eduardo Rivadavia

This lackluster, live double-album unsurprisingly combines a number of Deep Purple classics with choice cuts from the two '80s releases of the re-formed Mark II lineup. In fact, the record's only two eyebrow-raising moments occur during Jon Lord's multi-faceted keyboard solo which introduces "Knocking at Your Back Door," and in the band's studio re-recording of Mark II's big 1968 hit, "Hush." Ironically, like the infinitely superior 1972 Made in Japan live set, this recording presaged the second collapse of this most notorious Deep Purple lineup -- amazingly for exactly the same reasons as the first.
