I tried to get a track listing for this disc from various internet merchants, but to no avail. So I ordered the disc and was disappointed to find that the material is not new. It is currently available in another, preferable context: "Deep Purple In Concert" ("two complete 1970 - 1972 recordings"), a 2 CD set released on Spitfire in 2001. "Live on the BBC" is a single CD "produced under license from Spitfire Records" in 2004.
Audio Fidelity seems to have licensed the music on the second disc of "Deep Purple In Concert," had it remastered by Steve Hoffman and Lon Neumann, and added two also-previously-released tracks, 'Hush' and 'River Deep Mountain High' (also remastered from the already remastered--and readily available--early Deep Purple albums on Spitfire).
As "Deep Purple In Concert" was digitally remastered (by Joe Lambert) in 2001, the need for an SACD remaster is less than compelling to me (unlike the Dylan remasters). The additional tracks seem remarkably inappropriate to me because the main material is a live Paris Theatre (London) performance on March 9, 1972, of "Machine Head" material, the "new" album at the time, whereas the additional tracks were performed in the studio by a different, earlier lineup (Deep Purple MK I). Deep Purple released four albums in between, and the additional tracks don't seem to have any particular relevance to the later songs and performances.
The purpose of the original and still available "Deep Purple In Concert" was to present two complete Deep Purple concerts by the same lineup featuring significantly different material. It succeeded, in my opinion.

I have the DCC version of Made in Japan and this dosent come close for qaulity of sound.Both remastered by Steve Hoffman so what went wrong. I think it has to be the master tapes.Live at the BBC is only for die hard fans like myself who just want to hear the different interpretations of songs done live. Being an SACD I was hopeing for a lot more even from Made in Japan. Unfortunately SACD dosent help. Lets now hope they bring Made in Japan out on SACD. Now thats a master tape well worth the SACD improvement. I give it 65% for sound and 90% for music.

I bought this awhile back and I never did I review. But I feel everyone deserves the right to know how their products were. It came without a problem and it played okay. I would definitely buy it again. Just sorry for the late review

Been waiting for this one to come out since the 70s, when I recorded the broadcast off the radio. The performance was made about 2 months prior to Machinehead's release. Easily the best live Deep Purple performance I've heard. The sound is CRISP and the whole band is on fire, tight as heck and groovin throughout. Blackmore in particular is brutal...especially on Highway Star and Space Truckin (both better versions than on Made in Japan). IMHO, this is the definitive Deep Purple recording. A special bonus is the treatment of some songs from Machinehead I'd not heard live before. If you like Deep Purple, buy this one...I can guarentee you that you will not be disapointed...it will be more like OMG!!!! OMG!!! OMG!!! This recording sums up the essence of the band as I will always know them and love them..

Deep purple was the band that got me through High School. I thought the "Live in Japan" CD was the ultimate experience. I still have the original 2 LP album & yes I am that old. After reading all the reviews here I ordered the BBC version of Machine Head live. Well, I have to say, if you are a true DP fan, you owe yourself a listen. I had goosebumps on the opening track. I felt as if I was transformed to my high school days. The energy is there & the quality of the recordings are incredible for a concert so many years ago.
A comparison of the 2 live concerts is unavoidable so In my opinion, the Japan concert holds its place for the highest energy even though the recording quality is not that great. This BBC version is like an intimate affair with much better mic placement. Kind of like a MTV unplugged but with full amplification.
If you are a true DP fan, you owe it to yourself to relive a piece of history. I give this CD 5 stars.
