5.0 out of 5 stars Purple Progressive Power !!!, 21 Feb. 2011
This review is from: Made In Europe (Audio CD)
This was the first Deep Purple record I bought back in around 1980. It's been a favourite of the Mark 3 albums for a long time. As a single disc it compacts down a concert to the 5 songs included. All of which are live versions from the 2 studio albums. So there's no overlap with 'Made In Japan'. It compares very well with the original Mark 2 all time classic !

'Burn', 'Stormbringer' and 'Lady Double Dealer' are the shorter songs, but still featuring some excellent soloing from Ritchie Blackmore and Jon Lord. This line up with the dual vocals of David Coverdale and Glenn Hughes(also on bass)added a new dimension to Deep Purple's sound. This was most effective on the absolutely amazing 'You Fool No One'. Jon's intro is fantastic, and the way the guitar and bass come in after the drums is sensational. It is possibly Ian Paice's greatest drumming. The solos by Ritchie and Ian are astounding. There's no one better ! And the same goes for Jon.

'Mistreated' is the epic blues rock number that Coverdale show cased on vocals with out Glenn. Very stunning guitar opening and quieter middle passages. Great stomping beat for the main part. This was taken from the final 3 concerts by Ritchie Blackmore in April 1975 with Deep Purple. That is up until the Deep Purple Mark 2 reunion in 1984. In between times of course he formed Ritchie Blackmore's Rainbow.

Nice sleeve and live photos. The original came in a much missed gatefold sleeve. With short but well written notes by Geoff Barton and Pete Makowski. Live in LondonDeep Purple - History, Hits And Highlights 1968-1976 [DVD] [2009] [NTSC]
