This is actually a very good live album. The Blackmore, Lord and Paice trio at their best in Mk 3. Every one in their top form especially Ritchie, playing at his best and you could definitely hear some "in rock" lead work. What irritates me is Glen Hughes' meaningless ranting about nothing and the funky bass work. For purple fans, this is a "must have" live cd to add to your collections.

A great sound on this live record. Blackmore is a driving force in DP as always. Songs from Machine head, Burn and Stormbringer.Good singing from Hughes and Coverdale. Maybe one of the best live record from DP. The album cover is geat as well with colourful 12 pages booklet, nice pictures and with the story of DP Mark III.

Great concert. Recorded in 1975 at Ritchie Blackmore's last show with DP. Very well remastered and is very in your face. If you like DP live like I do, then this album is a must have!

The first CD is fantastic with some great Ritchie soloes. The second CD is why punk rock came about. Not really jamming, just endless "how you feeling" boring filler. It's hard to believe it's from the same show. If you get the right price, the first CD is well worth it.

This concert is great as Ritchie Blackmore was still the lead guitarist of DP his guitar playing and tone are one of the more originals in rock history, and his style is inimitable. great singing by David Coverdale, excellent sound a must for Deep Purple fans

40 Years ago, I've seen this show.
And I think that is one of the best live recorded performance by Deep Purple MKIII
Every member of the band is very inspired and incisive.
Absolutely a must have!

Tantalizingly close to perfection live show by arguably the best heavy rock band ever. Ritchie Blackmore played incredibly exciting live guitar, and Jon Lord must have been the best hard rock keyboardist. With the two of them together, along with the rest of the tight playing band, it was awesome...on the songs they didn't ruin by overlong slow intros, boring extended solos or Glenn Hughes' moronic banter. Coverdale and Hughes sang incredibly well in the harmonies. I can't think of a comparable combination in heavy rock history, and Hughes bass playing was outstanding. As good as the three really strong songs from Stormbringer are, along with a cool version of Smoke on the Water, the rest are flawed. Burn is close to being just right, but marred by a slow intro. Highway Star is mostly fabulous and definitely superior to Free Bird as rock's all-time closing anthem. Hearing this version gave me chills it was so good. Sadly, Coverdale mars it with sophomoric lyric substitutions from tires to boobs, and the ending is painful to listen to. They just left the final synth and guitar chords playing on as they walked off the stage. Space Truckin' was totally botched by morphing into long, slow solos, and why ever does this great band with tons of great songs need to bother covering Goin' Down? No wonder Ritchie left, and Jon and Ian soon folded the tent. Too bad they couldn't shut off Glenn's mike between songs, and maybe teach David to say something other than "God Bless" to the crowd. Too bad it was done in Paris. The crowd sounded strangely subdued. I saw their next tour in Dallas, and even with the flailing drug addled Tommy Bolin, who couldn't ever hold a candle to Blackmore, the crowd at least rollicked enthusiastically along. Kind of a shame considering how utterly awesome this CD almost is, and how enduringly great the band could have carried on to be.
