4 stars At one time, Deep Purple was the epitome of hard rock. Everyone knew their classics, like Highway Star and of course Smoke On The Water. This album captured their live performance at the height of their success. It also captures the end of an era for this band, since very soon, singer Ian Gillan left the band, and although they still had some success afterwards, they were never quite the same.

On this album, taken from shows recorded in three days in Osaka and Tokyo, you get to hear why Deep Purple was so popular. The songs are all extended jams, the shortest being Highway Star at close to seven minutes. And except for a now mundane drum solo, everything here is axactly what you would want to hear on a hard rock live album, great solos, high energy, and some of your favorite songs.

And it gave DJs time to go to the bathroom.

Evolver | 4/5 |
