We all know the history behind this one. Blackmores last gig with the band (For the time being anyway), going off in a strop because he didn't like the direction the band was going in. Well listening to this it is clear he was determined to show his bandmates what they would be missing. He was on fire that night and the rest of the band made sure they also rose to the occasion. OK some of the songs go on a bit, buy hey this was the seventies and that's what these bands did then, cos they had the talent and they could. Yes there are bum notes and the guitar goes out of tune every now and again, but that's part of the beauty of these 'unofficial'live albums that are released so long after the event, they don't get tampered with to give the impression that nothing ever goes wrong (Yes I'm talking about you Live And Dangerous). So what you get is a true reflection of what the band sounds like live, rather than something that is over a tarted up to the point it becomes anodyne and lifeless (Ok not Live and Dangerous). If you're a fan of Purple this is definitely recommended. Go on buy it, you know you want to, you won't be disappointed.
