5 stars "Put out that washing machine!" was my father's favorite yell when he used to enter my room while I was listening to hardrock like this legendary live album by Deep Purple. He couldn't understand that I was delighted about biting guitars, screaming vocals and furious Hammond organ runs. This week I played the remastered version (including a bonus CD with Black Night, Speed King and Lucille) and I was stunned how incredible timeless this music sounds: the high-adrenaline start with Highway Star (exciting Hammond organ), the compelling Child In Time (from the fragile Hammond organ intro to the legendary climax with Gillan's bone-chilling vocals), the great bass riff intro in Smoke On The Water, the entertaining drum solo in The Mule, the unique vocals-guitar duel in Strange Kind Of Woman, the exciting guitar work in Lazy and the sensational synthesizer play in Space Truckin', it's such a powerful, dynamic, crafty, thrilling and pivotal 'heavy progressive rock music', I am looking forward to see them for the first time in my life (I am from 1960) during the Dutch Arrow Classic Rock Festival this summer!
