Disappointing and self indulgent,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Live In London (Audio CD)
I saw Deep Purple first in 1971 and have been a fan through out most of the time since then. I tend to favour Gillan over Coverdale, but I read the reviews and thought this looked good. I was deeply disappointed. As ever Richie Blackmore is wonderful, but as always he needs more discipline in his playing. Disc 1 is good, but no more than averagely good. But Disc 2 brings to the front all the excesses of this time in rock music. You fool no one at 20.22 was over long and had by the end run out of ideas and my patience. But then Space truckin at 31 minutes. Goodness - too much; a mish mash of self indulgence and pointless twiddling.

Mr. A M. Keown says:
I was at this concert with my brother & his wife! started brilliantly, exrtremely loud (it is a movie theatre) but once SOTW started the boring did too, Coverdale left the stage and I can recall seeing him standing behind the Marshall stacks smoking, he would rush out, do his vocals and retreat whilst the band bored us to death with the endless noodling, the epitome of 1970's rock that was swept away by punk that christ!
