4.0 out of 5 stars As good as it gets 22 May 2005
Format:Audio CD
Widely bootlegged since year dot, this has long been hailed as one of the finest Mk 2 performances caught on tape. And time has not withered it's impact. If anything, the remix and remastering has made it even better than on the several other 'unofficial' versions I have lying around.
To be fair, "Speed King" is a bit uneven, but by the time they hit "Into The Fire", this is the sound of a band that knew they were white hot. Even that hoary old chestnut, "Child In Time" sounds fresh and vital. Which it was in 1970!
But then, it's off into my favourite of all Mk 1/2 worlds - "Wring That Neck". Shorn of Gillans histrionics, Deep Purple were peerless, when it came to instrumental mastery. And this one of the finest versions of "Wring That Neck" going. Twenty minutes of sheer magic.
I never liked the Purple version of "Paint It Black", regardless of the drum solo, so skipped on to that other gem, "Mandrake Root". Of all the tracks here, this is where the remix seems to have done most good, with the muddy bass cleaning up well. Then it's hit single time, with "Black Night", and we're off home.
So, should you buy this, if you've already got "Scandinavian Nights"?
Well, yes. First of, the running order is right, the sound is clearer (and louder), you get the usual high quality Purple Records booklet (and reproducing the ticket on the CD is a neat touch), and this is as good as Mk2 Purple gets.

5.0 out of 5 stars AS GOOD AS MADE IN JAPAN !!!! 14 Jun 2011
Format:Audio CD
DEEP PURPLE's 'Scandinavian Nights' or as this re-issue is called 'Live In Stockholm 1970', is a fantastic concert of Deep Purple mark 2. It's a 2 cd set. And has a complete concert from 1970 in Sweden. EVERY song is awesome and features extended soloing, improvisation and incredible playing and singing. This is one of the best if not the best live performance of the band available on cd. Tracks are 'Speed King', a 10 minute version with pin dropping quiet middle section, 'Into The Fire', 'Child In Time', an amazing 17 minute plus version with jazzy improvisational middle passage, 'Paint It Black', Ian Paice's 10 minute drum solo, 'Wring That Neck', extended to half an hour, 'Mandrake Root' another half hour long version of intense playing, and 'Black Night', which includes the most amazing singing and guitar dueling from Ian Gillan and Ritchie Blackmore, it's stunning, they just go higher and higher !
Better than 'Made In Japan' ??? Well 'Made In Japan' is the acknowledged classic ! As it should be. But this archive album release is easily as good. BLACKMORE/GILLAN/GLOVER/LORD/PAICE ARE THE BAND, ARE ROCK, ARE DEEP PURPLE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Live in Montreux 1969Deep Purple - History, Hits And Highlights 1968-1976 [DVD] [2009] [NTSC]Long Live Rock 'n' Roll

5.0 out of 5 stars the best live recording from DP ? 15 Mar 2007
By abcde
Format:Audio CD
Made in Japan is known as the best live recording ever in rock history and probably is. But Live in Stockholm 1970 as nearly as good. The performance recorded here is absolutely superb. The set list is classical for that period and starts with Speed King, probably the best version available so far. After Into The Fire, we get THE best version of Child In Time. Everything is just perfect, especially JL and RB in the instrumental section, phenomenal ! THE highlight of the record for me. And then we have Wring That Neck, a great version too, except maybe the JL solo. But the firt ten minutes are just exceptional.

The second disc is also of very high standard, with a great Mandrake Root (only the Live in Aachen version could be better) and a very energic Black Night to end a fantastic show.

So even if there is nothing new as it was already available before as Scandinavian Nights, this record is one of the best live recording in DP history, and shows the band at their first peak during the In Rock tour : fresh, lively, inspired on stage. Machine Head (and MIJ) will follow.

5.0 out of 5 stars Prime purple 28 Dec 2010
Format:MP3 Download|Verified Purchase
This is excellent. The sound quality is just fine. The band, especially Richie, are well on form. The improv sections are typical of the time-more exploratory than simple showing off. The version of Child in Time is mind blowing

2.0 out of 5 stars Deep Purple Live In Stockholm (remastered) 8 Sep 2009
Format:Audio CD
Except for Made in Japan this live album is close to being right up there with it,unfortunately even though the sound quality is better on this version the authenticity for me has been ripped out of this album i will stick to the Scandanavian Nights version anyone who has got a copy of the latter make sure you listen to the remastered version by downloading a song before buying this version,disappointing.
