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.

Have to agree with a lot of the complaints on here about Glenn Hughes.
Not only is he very irritating with his vocal interjections during the songs and his ridiculous announcements between songs but he actually dominates this set to an unusually large degree - you just can't escape him.
Yet his bass playing is pretty good.
And I'm not knocking the bloke for no reason - Medusa by Trapeze is one of my all time faves, and his work on the album he made with Pat Thrall is pretty good as well. But he does make lengthy parts of this set so far removed from what Purple were about that there are spells within individual songs where it seems to be at least 2 if not more bands playing on the same stage.
It's no wonder that Blackmore was already planning his escape route.
Glenn Hughes should have been appearing with James Brown at the Apollo Harlem instead of Deep Purple in Paris, but at least in later life he has accepted and regretted some of the more extreme 'actions' of his hedonistic 70s lifestyle

Deep Purple - Live In Paris 75 is a fantastic album for a number of reasons. First of all, the history, you may or may not know, but this Paris gig is actually the very last Mk III concert (Blackmore, Coverdale, Hughes, Lord, Paice). After this show Ritchie Blackmore would leave the band to start his band Rainbow. Therefore, the show was always going to be special, full of emotion, and it did not disappoint. The music is as always top draw, but the thing that sets this show apart from other Mk III gigs is the volume of material. Included in this shows are of course the favourites from Mk II days (Smoke On The Water, Highway Star) and the favourites from Mk III's Burn album (Burn, Mistreated) but also performances of songs from Mk III's other album Stormbringer (Gypsy, Lady Double Dealer) not heard on classic gigs like Live In London and California Jamming. As i said the music is fantastic, Deep Purple always stood out to me as a band capable of fantastic things, and unlike many other bands they seem to deliver every time! From Mk II's Made In Japan all the way to this brilliant album, and beyond, DP have always been a top live band. Not a lot of people (myself included) were lucky enough to see the great Mk III line-up because of the simple fact that they were only together just under two years. This is album is definately the next best thing, be it Ritchie's sublime guitar solos (notably Mistreated) or Glenn and David vying for vocals this band always put on a great show and if you only buy one DP Mk III live album, make sure its Live In Paris 75.

Just took ownership of this & listened to it straight through (except the interview)

So what have we got:

Sound: Not bad quality but not enough "oomph" on the bottom end for my tastes. Sounded a bit weedy in places.

Musicianship: As repeated elsewhere, this was Blackmore's last gig with DP until the reunion. Sounds like he was proving what a loss he'd be as he is on fire. Mind you, so are Lord & Paice. Never been that much of a fan of Coverdale this era but thought he improved with Whitesnake.
Hughes is a better singer IMHO but find his bass too low in the mix to form an opinion.

Setlist: Excellent. don't let the track list on the cover fool you. A lot of the numbers here feature either long jams or medleys (Lazy & the Mule make an appearance amongst others)

Packaging: A disgrace. A single tray for 2 discs? Looks like someone is still believing the hype about CDs being indestructible.

Worth £8.00? Oh yes. Will probably continue to buy these as hey are released

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.
