This album shows Deep Purple as they were firing on all thrusters, ready to make
the jump to rock ‘n’ roll superstardom. This particular concert took place at
London's Paris Theater in 1972 and was recorded by the BBC.
Formed in 1968, Deep Purple are considered to be among the pioneers of heavy
metal and modern hard rock, though their musical approach has changed over the
years. Deep Purple, Led Zeppelin, and Black Sabbath together have been referred
to as the "unholy trinity of British hard rock and heavy metal in the early to
mid-seventies." They were listed in the 1975 Guinness Book of World Records as
"the globe's loudest band" for a 1972 concert at London's Rainbow Theatre, and
have sold over 100 million albums worldwide.
Deep Purple has survived a seemingly endless series of lineup changes and a
dramatic mid-career shift from grandiose progressive rock to ear-shattering
heavy metal to emerge as a true institution of the British hard rock community.
Their revolving-door roster launched the careers of performers including Ritchie
Blackmore, David Coverdale, and Ian Gillan.
