The Mk 4 DVD is now being scheduled for late May 2011. It is now retitled Phoenix Rising, and is a DVD packaged with a live audio CD. The DVD has a documentary (titled Gettin' Tighter); this was originally a sort of 'making of' Come Taste The Band, with studio knob twiddling, interviews, and footage of Deep Purple Mk 4, but is now extended to tell the story of the Mk 4 tour. More live material has been unearthed but we still do not know exactly what will be included beyond the 30 minute Rises Over Japan film.
There are three editions planned, a CD / DVD pack in a CD sized case. A DVD / CD pack which will include a small book and be a limited edition. A blu-ray edition with both video and audio elements on one disc. The DVD will offer surround sound on the Rises footage.
-90 minute documentary of the story behind Deep Purple “post Gillan years” narrated from Lord and Hughes, with never seen before live images, backstage scenes, rare visual from the bands own archives.
