Editorial Reviews

Limited three disc (two CDs + NTSC/Region 0 DVD) live release from the celebrated MKII line up. in June '70, just five months prior to the recording of this incendiary Scandi-performance, Purple had unleashed IN ROCK, the album that both created and defined heavy Rock. for Purple, in ROCK was the ultimate statement of intent. IN ROCK was the turning point in the band's career. So to the Swedish capital of Stockholm on November 12, '70. Here, at the Konserthuset venue, riding high on in Rock's success, Purple had one simple, single-minded aim: To stretch the infant heavy rock genre to breaking point. with no borders, no boundaries, unburdened by gimmickry or heritage, on this live recording Purple simply erupt. There's an endearing naivete to Purple's performance, too. a sense that, in unleashing the beast, the band didn't quite know how savage and dangerous this feral being would become.

Customer Reviews

This recording is from the Deep Purple In Rock era.
Isaac Salapa
There are so many great live tapes of Deep Purple out there (mainly unavailable on compact disc), but this one is still worth hearing.
Micaloneus
Their were few bands who were better live than in the studio, and Purple was one of best.

In response to the previous reviewer's complaint that this is just a rehashed release of "Scandinavian Nights" put out purely to make money, I thought I should write that this new release "Live in Stockholm 1970" is in fact the same show, but it is in much better sound quality than the older "Scandinavian Nights" release. The old release was sourced from a t.v. or radio broadcast, while this new release was taken directly from newly rediscovered 4-track master tapes. The previous release also had the songs in the wrong order, and that has been corrected on "Live in Stockholm 1970". If you already own an older version of this concert, you need to decide if you like it enough to pay for an upgrade in sound quality and a return to the authentic song order. However, if you don't already own it, be sure to get "Live in Stockholm 1970", and NOT "Scandinavian Nights". The performances are extremely energetic and outstanding overall. This is a much more frenetic and experimental live document of Deep Purple than the famous "Made In Japan" from only 2 years later.

Live in Stockholm 1970 is a fantastic CD made a couple of years before Made in Japan. Purple were on all cylinders, improvising and playing like no one's business. Personally, I'd rather hear Mandrake Root or Wring that Neck instead of the Mule or Space Trucking. Black Night is amazing with Ritchie stretching out - could be the best version ever! This version of Mandrake Root is without a doubt the best version ever!! Absolutely amazing! I'm not going to say that Speed King is better than Highway Star or Into the Fire makes one forget about Smoke on the Water or that this version of Child in Time is better than Made in Japan's, but I just think that once you have heard MIJ a dozen times, this album makes a great alternative. In my opinion, it is the second best live Purple album just barely behind MIJ, but only by a little.

First, let's make it clear that yes, this has been released before under the name "Scandinavian Nights." Yes, it's the same material. But this remastered release has much better sound quality and puts the tracks in their proper concert order. It also has extensive liner notes, pictures, ticket stubs, posters, etc.

Now, the music itself. This recording is from the Deep Purple In Rock era. The concert is about two and a half hours total, which is ridiculous for seven songs. Four of the songs are based more on Ian Gillan's vocals (Speed King, Into the Fire, Child in Time, Black Night) and the other three (Paint It Black, Wring that Neck, Mandrake Root) are a lot of good instrumental jamming. Wring that Neck and Mandrake Root are half an hour EACH, and Child in Time is almost twenty minutes.

The best word to describe this concert is INTENSE. Right from the first chord in the Speed King intro, you know you're in for a wild ride, and Deep Purple don't disappoint. Child in Time, Speed King, and Black Night are all longer, louder, and more energetic than the Made in Japan versions, and it's neat to see a live take of Into the Fire. Gillan does a lot more screaming than on MiJ, but he pulls it off very well. Ritchie Blackmore and Jon Lord tear it up the whole time.

There are several differences between this and Made in Japan. First, and most obviously, this is pre-Machine Head and consequently doesn't have the hits from that album. If you want Smoke on the Water and the like, go get Made in Japan. Second, the tracks are a lot longer than any other live Purple recording. Only two songs (Into the Fire and Black Night, which is the encore) are under ten minutes.

Hello folks,

There will be plenty of great reviews about this recording already available, so I'll keep this short & sweet !

1st. This is a must have item. Sound quality is bliss, the performances exceptional, & is great value for money.

2nd. The bonus tracks from a gig in France are even better in sound quality, & rival Made in Japan. The performance speaks for itself, & leaves you asking "where the hell is the rest of the show" ? !!!

3rd. If the above isn't enough to warrant it's purchase, then the DVD that comes with it should...A 30 odd minute TV studio appearance in Spain is quite remarkable, being in colour, & having great sound quality. This is a must have item !!! Perhaps for the 1st & last time will you see Mr.Blackmore playing both his Black Stratocaster guitar, & his Gibson 335. The band does not hold back, & puts on quite a show.

The only negatives about this Disc-set is that it has taken way-too-long to be officially released, so don't hesitate to grab it while it lasts. Once again, the sound quality is remarkable for the age of this gig(s), so thanks Mr.Birch for your efforts !

Enjoy folks, this is great Deep Purple.

1970...a transition period for rock 'n' roll, with the end of The Beatles and Jimi Hendrix along with the emergence of a new genre, hard rock/heavy metal. One of the most important bands in this new category is Deep Purple, and this live album shows Deep Purple at their most hardest and heaviest! This live recording was made while the band was on tour behind their latest album, 'In Rock'. While they were still two years away from reaching superstardom with 'Machine Head' and 'Made In Japan', this live album shows that Deep Purple MK II knew exactly what they were doing right from the beginning. Kicking off with an exciting, 11-minute version of "Speed King", the interplay between Blackmore, Lord, and Gillan is awesome and never boring. "Into The Fire" is up next, and while this was played frequently between 1970 and 1971, there are very few existing live recordings that have been officially released. This version of "Into The Fire" is as loud and as heavy as ever, a very good performance. Next up is a 19-minute version of "Child In Time", which may be even better then the 'Made In Japan' version, featuring some excellent soloing by Ritchie. "Wring That Neck" follows, it is almost a half hour in length of jamming and soloing by Jon Lord and Ritchie Blackmore. Deep Purple's version of "Paint It Black" opens the second disc, and gives Ian Paice (who plays phenomenally throughout the whole disc) a solo spot. "Mandrake Root" again gives Blackmore and Lord solo spots with the theme played during Blackmore's solo later being used as the solo spot on "Space Truckin'". The concert closes out with a blistering, 7-minute version of "Black Night", thus ending one of the greatest concerts ever recorded. So if your into Deep Purple and like live recordings, then this is definitely for you!
