What can i say,this has been issued several times before, as 'Live In Denmark '72' circa 2002,again as 'Live In Copenhagen' circa 2007,remastered apparently,also as a DVD circa 2005 titled 'Live In Concert 72/73 (which included the footage from America),there's also a video called 'Scandanavian Nights',not to be confused with a live album of the same name,phew,its confusing,i believe however this is the first time the 1973 American tracks have been issued as stand alone audio.

If your a Purple fan,then i dont need to re-iterate that this was mark 2 at their peak,'Made In Japan', is rightly held up as a classic live album,no arguements with that,this is its equal,if pushed i would argue its possibly better.

The sound .on this release,has been remastered ,it says here,its of its time,its sound great given its more than 40 years old,Paice's drums bounce from the speakers,the energy from Glover and Lord underpinning everything,whilst Blackmore just,does what he does best,magnificent guitar playing stunning solo's,moments of ,off the wall genuis,then there's Gillan,his voice sounding immaculate,i believe his performance,here, certainly better than Made In Japan(which wasnt too shabby)

its an incredible soundbite of Purple at their youthful best,the exuberance,intensity crackling from the speakers,a joy to listen to,throw in three excellent tracks from the USA 1973,including 'Smoke on the Water',then you can die happy, a fabulous release,audio wise.

Packaging,well thats a different matter,a scandously cheaply made digi pak,with one cd tray/holder,its the first time i've ever bought a double cd where i had to store 1 disc directly on top of the other,whilst the booklet has a few decent pictures,Geoff Bartons notes are woeful,interestling there is an insert that refers to a series of 10 releases(Live in Paris '75 appears to have been the first,this being the 2nd),given that that Paris disc has been issued before as well,it will be interesting to see, if its all, reissues of previously released material.

If you havent got any of the previous versions on cd,this is well worth buying.

Originally, I planned to collect the previous release, but when I heard about this new release I decided to buy it because of the 1973 bonuses (as it was originally on the 2002 DVD version).

I'm very glad that EDEL re-releasing this archive concert titles, they are very good and valuable.

I suppose the sound is probably just a bit "re-equalized" (the original source was a videotape, not a multi-track soundboard recording). I'm not analyizing the material, it speaks for itself.

The new digipack design is looking good, there is a short illustrated booklet indside (not as long and well-written as the original DPAS/Sonic Zoom releases, but better than nothing).

But the AWFUL. (And I was moderate.) There is only one tray inside, the two CDs are sitting on each other. Dear EDEL, the case of CD was called jewel box in the old time, in order to protect the discs from scratches and other injuries. I can't belive, that a proper 3 part digipack with two trays would have cost much more than this...

Sound quality is not brilliant. The mix seems a little strange now and again.
However, it's a brilliant perfomance. DP are on fire on this one.
Love it!

Great band and great concert. Sound quality well done. The best Deep Purple band ever, nice to have this concert and compare it with Deep Purple Made in Japan.

A superb gig. In 1972 Purple were at there peak even with all the internal turmoil. When they took the stage something magical happened. The tracks on hear have been released live in different forms on various albums culminating in the release of the deluxe version of Made In Japan. Purples stage set remains pretty much unchanged except for encores for a few years. However I've never known a band to make the same songs have a different feel and emotion. They were not a band just to go through the motions night after night. Different solos drum patterns between song interplay. Strange Kind Of Woman is never the same. Musicians at the top of their game. Faultless. Can't wait for Long beach 1971. Magical. Packaging leaves a lot to be desired bonus material worth having.

Blackmore has played better but a good early gig at the start of the Machine head tour.
