Product Description

Note: this product includes a bonus DVD (region-free) of Deep Purple's performance at Granada TV, Manchester from 1970.

It’s like rock’n’roll with its trousers down. Rock’n’roll back-to-front, inside-out, whatever you like. Hold on. Those aren’t my words, they’re Deep Purple frontman Ian Gillan’s, uttered as introduction to the song Into The Fire. Gillan’s off-the-wall description turns out to be pretty damn accurate.

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 naïveté 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. Take Gillan’s endearingly shambolic introduction to this epic show as an example: “We’d like to start with, er, sort of, a bunch of rock’n’roll numbers we’ve got together.”

It turns out to be the greatest understatement of all time as Speed King escapes from its cage, lumbering like a bellowing elephant, as quickfire as a 70mph cheetah, as vicious as a mauling lion... all at the same time. Remarkable for a song simply “designed to raise a sweat and all sorts of things”.

The spine-tingling mayhem continues through Into The Fire (mean, lurching and rumbling, with some extraordinarily unhinged vocals from Gillan); Child In Time (an astonishing combination of sensitivity and explosiveness; like a Teddy Bear with a hand grenade inside); and the Blackmore instrumental showcase ‘Wring That Neck’. ‘Paint It, Black’, meanwhile, makes a brief nod in recognition of the Rolling Stones classic before morphing into an extended Ian Paice drum solo. Mandrake Root, introduced by Gillan as “one you can jump along to”, lasts over half-an-hour. Finally, set closer – and hit single – Black Night is completed in a relatively brief seven minutes, then collapses in a wail of agony and exhaustion, courtesy of Lord’s wheezing Hammond organ. It’s a fitting end to a consummate display.

Completed by two bonus tracks from Paris in November 1970 and rounded off by a bonus DVD - the famous performance of the band at Granada TV, Manchester in 1970 and for the first time on DVD, this is the sound – and vision – of the classic Deep Purple Mk II doing their thing, as only Purple can.....Trouserless but triumphant.

“Stockholm 1970” is the third of a 10 releases spanning re-issue series of Deep Purple."

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.

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.

Third in the set, can't wait for the rest of them. If you love the thrill and song differences of live music you will love the old concerts on these CDs. Don't expect studio quality, these are LIVE concerts warts and all. GREAT

The recent series of live albums is building nicely and this is another excellent addition to one of my fave bands of all times.
It is great that we are now able to hear classic concerts from years gone by.

Without doubt Deep Purple at its best. In my opinion tops Made in Japan. Fantastic musicianship and energy that still makes you wanna jump around... 44 years later. Highlights for me are Mandrake Root, Speed King, Into The Fire... well I could almost list here the whole album. If you like DP's In Rock, this is a must buy. You will not regret it.

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.

We are so lucky to see this rare material finally hitting the light of day. My favourite era deep purple bringing the house down again. I won't review track by track. Great extra video performances included in this package. Buy it and enjoy musical history.

I bought the main part of this set years ago on vinyl when it was entitled Scandinavian Nights and again on CD as Live In Stockholm so it's a bit of a disappointment to see this reissued yet again albeit with a few extras added on. The same thing happened with the Live in Copenhagen CD which is just Live In Denmark with a couple of extra tracks. There's absolutely nothing wrong with the performances they're all excellent, those that I've heard, in fact they're some of my favourite renditions of these tracks. If you haven't got the earlier issues of these concerts then this is probably the version to buy. Purple never failed to produce exciting live performances back then, they knock spots of the releases from recent concerts. All in all good value for money but not if you already own most of it. Is this the band or the record companies cashing in on the fans loyalty?
