5 stars This is actually a better set than _Made In Japan_. A 2 CD set this one, It contains one show from 1970 and another which sounds like an album release party for Machine Head. Simply put, if you'd like to hear the Purps with warts and all, this is your bag. There's great banter between both band and studio host as well as intimate crowd participation. Both shows are recorded at Deep Purple in their prime periods. Disc 1 is from _In Rock_ and as mentioned, Disc 2 from the _Machine Head_ period. Both members Jon Lord and Ritchie Blackmore trade off some wonderful duals, on par with Keith Jarrett and Chick Corea's keyboard wars in the Miles Davis electric live albums. The difference is between a heavily distorted Hammond B-3 and a Fender Strat. Truly astonishing! Sound quality is superb. A wonderful bottom end on the powerful rhythm section of Roger Glover and Ian Paice. Ian Gillan is in top silver throated form. Recommended.
Gooner | 5/5 |
