A legendary concert by the David Coverdale-Tommy Bolin fronted version of the veteran heavy metal group at the Long Beach Arena was extensively bootlegged for years until 1995 when the band decided to capitalize on the recordings themselves. So here are blistering versions of "Smoke On The Water", "Burn", "Highway Star", "Lady Luck' and many more. This Is Music. 2004.

Lord and Paice is great as always. Paice is at his peak here, and Lord is...well, Lord!! Coverdale sounds a little "tired" at times, but does a fairly good job.
All in all a great Purple record that shows that the MKIV line-up had potential as a liveband. The band sounds really funky, and shows a new side of Purple that I like very much. To bad that someone blew it by living the rock'n roll lifestyle...
"Burn" starts the concert with great enthusiasm. "Lady Luck" & "Love Child" at their best moment. "Getting Tighter" by then is a great chance for the band to jam, including parts of songs that Glenn Hughes was going to record on his first solo album, like "It's About Time", magistral verion. An incredible version of "Smoke On The Water" that ends up with "Georgia On My Mind" and Glenn Hughes singing his best ever vocal performance. Specially the first version on CD1. "This Time Around" is delightful. "Stormbringer" is superb and stands strong. The verion of "Highway Star" is a re-newed great one. This is a MUST HAVE for DP fans and very enjoyable for people who enjoys a great & loud rock and roll show.
One thing I notice in reviews is that people overlooked the performance of the "WHOLE BAND". They just go to the guitarrists and then it's a "BAD ALBUM 'cos Ritchie Blackmore is not here" or "GREAT ALBUM 'cos Tommy Bolin is awesome". The GREATEST of Deep Purple is having so much talent to offer. For drummers, Ian Paice; for Hammond Organ lovers, Jon Lord; for singers, Glenn Hughes & David Coverdale... and so on. So stop it with making focus on the guitarists and enjoy the whole music that each member has to offer ;-)
