Product Description

Product Description

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good.......at times! Jan. 24 2004
Format:Audio CD
This is certainly Deep Purple MKIV at their best when you compare this record to "the other record" (Last Concert In Japan). The problem with MKIV was, IMO, first of all that drugs were at this time playing a big part in the band. Bolin and Hughes drug abuse is well documented, and I think that their behavior did much harm to the band. Hughes voice is not on top form here like it was in '74, but he gets the job done even though he, at times, sound a little "tired". Great bassplaying as always! Tommy Bolin gives a very good impression here, but at times it sounds like he is afraid of even trying to fill Mr. Blackmores shoes. On his own solosongs and the songs from Come Taste The Band (a truly great Purple offering) he is amazing, and shows why Billy Cobham chose him to play on his Spectrum album.
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...

5.0 out of 5 stars DEEP PURPLE MK4 AT THEIR BEST !! Oct. 2 2003
By Roger
Format:Audio CD
This is A-W-E-S-O-M-E. Great Concert. Buy it, enjoy it, love it.
"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 ;-)

4.0 out of 5 stars Unbelievably Awesome! June 22 2000
Format:Audio CD
Note: This album is a 5-star rating if you're a Mk 4 DP fan. If you're not yet a fan of the Bolin era, this might either change your mind.. it might also turn you off, so be warned.
Still, it is awesome stuff! Folks have always ridden the Mk4 live reputation hard, mostly because of the awful Last Concert in Japan recording. Throw that one away and get this set and the soon-to-be-released This Time Around. Bolin gives incredible life and energy to this performance, featuring a strong performance by Jon Lord and what has to be THE BEST drumming to come out of Ian Paice. High points are "Burn", "Gettin' Tighter", a very soulful "This Time Around", and a mean, growling, gut-crunching version of "Stormbringer". Dean says you gotta check it out, and all my DP buds who heard it agree.
