A Superb Live Album from Deep Purple.......
on 23 April 2017
As you are probably aware by now, this is 3 disc heavyweight vinyl 2014 reissue of the remastered 2003 CD release, and to my ears at least is a far superior issue. Every instrument can be heard clearly, with a depth and clarity that was missing on the original. As this is the MkIII lineup consisting of new members Glenn Hughes & David Coverdale, quite a few of the tracks on this album come from their recent recording efforts with Blackmore, Paice & Lord, so you get songs from the "Stormbringer" & "Burn" albums as well as old favourites from the MKII lineup, including "Space Trucking" and the ubiquitous "Smoke on the Water". The energy and vibrancy really comes through on this album and I can safely say that there isn't a duff track on it. The 3 disc vinyl version comes handsomely packaged in a gatefold sleeve, with the inner gatefold showing press cuttings from the time. The three inner sleeves are adorned with a variety of photo's and press cuttings for you to while away the time while listening to the album. The vinyl itself is of an excellent, heavyweight quality with no hisses or scratches heard. I was never much of a fan of the MKIII lineup, but Paris 1975 may just have convinced me otherwise. Al in all, an excellent purchase.
