5.0 out of 5 stars Mark III As good as Mark II Live album, 24 Feb 2004
By A Customer
This review is from: Live in Paris 1975 (Audio CD)
What more could any one want ? Deep Purple in their pomp, rarely perfomed material(from Stormbringer) & added to this is the emotionally charged atmosphere of Ritchie Blackmore's final show.
This has it all, & is remixed from orginal source tapes, so it doesn't sound like the band are playing on the phone, or as on Made in Europe (the orginal album this was taped for) with looped audience response.
The playing is all that can be expected of a top band in their prime. David Coverdale is in fine voice throughout, even Highway star sounds great. Note, DC in 75 is not to be confused with the tanned, blonde HM smoothie of the late 80s.
Highspots are hard to single out, mistreated, as ever with Mk III is well delivered, but Stormbringer & You fool no one running close.
At last a Mk III live album the equal of the peerless 'Made in Japan'. Helps to disprove the addage of live albums being inferior product, as here all the Mk III material is better than on the source studio records.
Go on have a listen, you know you want to.
