5 stars I bought this record( my mum paid for it I recall) whilst I was on holiday and put it on the moment I got home, to be honest I found it a little heavy for my tastes but as it cost a deal of cash at the time I persisted and was rewarded by one of the finest Live recordings that I have ever owned. I still have the same copy today and I still listen to it now and then. "Child in Time" is very well done but the treat on this record is the amazingly good version of" space trucking" which is extended and takes up a side on its own. Jon Lords organ is a little reminiscent of Emerson at his very best and the whole band play faultlessly throughout this mega number. If it contained no other tracks it would still be worth all of its price. As it is this is by far my favorite deep purple recording of them all and the only one I do not hesitate in giving 5 stars to. A must own record for all heavy prog fans. Only the Who's live at Leeds is a better live record this one is an absolute classic.

I believe I paid 3.35 for my original copy, which is still playable. I recently bought the CD version of this, whilst the sound is mostly a great improvement the vocals do sound rather harsh at times. I would only give the cd 4 stars.
