5.0 out of 5 stars I was There, 13 Oct 2005
This review is from: In Concert 1970-1972 (Audio CD)
I was actually at the concert with Mike Harding as compere. I used to go to a lot of BBC concerts in those days. This one goes down as the best concert I ever attended. I was not a big Deep Purple fan and I only reluctantly decided to go at the last minute, BBC concert tickets were free, but I am so glad I made the effort. When the band kicked off with Highway Star I was just amazed at the power and the energy that they put accross. The whole audience were out of their seats and dancing in the aisles. Ritchie Blackmore's guitar work was brilliant, he was playing it behind his head and with his teeth. It was almost Hendrix like. As the show went on they just got better and better, the drum work by Ian Paice being particularly outstanding. The tour de force of the concert in my opinion was the 20 odd minute performance of Space Trucking, but the whole experience is something that has stayed with me for the last 33 years. Highly recommended, better than Made in Japan and that's saying something!

So what did Gillan mean by "Pity this ain't television" after the audience banter just before Space Trucking?
