3 stars One of interesting point of Deep Purple is that they have different kind of performance from one live set to another. It's by no exception this live set. When it was available (sometime in 2001, I think) I was first actually not iunterested to purchase - cause I think it was just a bootleg version. B ut when a friend of mine told me that this is official album, then I was interested. The concert was recorded by Sveriges Radio at a concert in Koncerthuset, Stockholm, on 12. November 1970. The album was released as Live and Rare in USA in 1992 by Relativity. When I spun the CD at first time, I could sense the live vibes really nice. Wring That Neck became so interesting and explorative in nature. A bit boring for those who are not familiar with Deep Purple. But of course, every body would be interested to enjoy how "Paint It Balack" by Rolling Stones was performed by Deep Purple. (This was actually how I was interested with this CD). Child In Time is also performed longer. That has all become the key characteristics of Deep Purple live recordings.

For those who like rock live recordings, this is a good one to have. Sound quality is not that excellent (hello .. this was 1970!) but it's okay for my ears.
