They were the first rock band in the end of 60's who ever integrated the rock music with the classical elements. What the other rock bands had never done before. The idea came from the band's keyboard player Mr. Jon Lord (an excellent keyboard man).
This set was recorded live at the Royal Albert Hall in London UK 1969 & divided into three sections:
1. Allegreto.
2.Allegro with the 1st and second Andante lyrics by the lead singer of the group Ian Gillan.
3. Vivace presto which included a full lenght solo drums from Ian Paice.
Deep Purple was the very first rock band who ever played for the album set with the amazing Royal philharmonic orchestra. The result is absolutely fantastic and grander than grand. The remake of this original orchestra from 1969 was played again 30 years later in 1999 (available on the double cd set London Symphony Orchestra conducted by Paul Mann).
PS: Jon Lord's best friend (Dr. Malcolm Arnold) who at that time conducted the orchestra set told in his reviews that the Beatles also did several songs with the orchestra before in 1967, but Beatles did not play for the whole album set like Deep Purple did in this amazing cd.
Many Deep Purple fans are saying that Purple absolutely rules but Beatlemania has lost!

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice Partnership beyond Smoke on the Water June 30 2002
Format:Audio CD
To my mind, this is the ultimate fusion, the power of an orchestra melding and flowing with a power rock group. Deep Purple struts their stuff on this CD. They have the power to avoid being eclipsed by orchestration, yet manage to partner with the orchestra. The result is a wonderful fusion that will either offend the classisist, bore the rocker, or thrill those who love Music.
Not surprisingly, the orchestration is a bit bombastic. I would have enjoyed more flowing strings and less staccato--that would have contrasted nicely with Deep Purples contribution. But, even this melodramatic orchestration works to create a tantalizing fusion.
If you just want more Highway Star Spacetrucking Women from Tokyo Smoking on the Water, this isn't the CD for you. If you like symphonic music and admire the art of rock, consider this experience. It's well worth the money.

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent idea from Jon Lord Oct. 27 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
it is an excellent idea from JON LORD, he was a hero in this album, Dr. Malcolm Arnold helped the band in 1969 by doing this stuffs. The concerto was composed by Jon Lord & divided into three sections,...at that time in 1969, DP was the very first rock band who ever did the rock n roll sound with the classical elements.
and the result is brain melting! don't forget to see the remake 30 years later in 1999 2 cd set "DP with LONDON SYMPONY ORCHESTRA".

5.0 out of 5 stars A classic album Sept. 2 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
It was in September 1969 when Deep Purple gave their famous concert with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. The chemistry between the musicians and the orchestra is phantastic and Malcom Arnold has done his best work since his soundtrack for "The Bridge on the River Kwai".

5.0 out of 5 stars Deep Purple & the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra April 7 2004
Format:Audio CD
I bought this vinyl record back in the early 70's. It is one heck of a performance, and the guitar work is unbelievable. I wouldn't part with this record, unless you would want to trade a vintage Stratocaster for it. Then I might consider it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fair try Nov. 16 2001
Format:Audio CD
Jon was trying to make a blend of classical and rock and was reasonably successful. Mr. Blackmore got a bit too free a play with the guitar; otherwise in balance. Recommended as easy listening.

4.0 out of 5 stars Deep Purple & the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra Nov. 11 2001
Format:Audio CD
This album should be a classic masterpiece.
The first movement is a briliant musical representation of the battle between orchestra and band.
