Deep Purple (Only) at the California Jam
(3 out of 5 stars)
"Quality video of Deep Purple at the California Jam April 6, 1974. ABC put on this show with Black Oak Arkansas, Black Sabath, Emmerson Lake And Palmer,Earth Wind & Fire, the Eagles, and of course Deep Purple (maybe others). They recorded the show wall to wall and cut it up and played it in two nights in 74 and repaeted it in 75. It was played in stero on FM radio at the same time. WHERE IS ABC WITH THE REST OF THE CONCERT?"
Ritchie burned and tumbled his guitar everywhere!
(4 out of 5 stars)
"MK III Purple line up (Coverdale, blackmore, hughes, lord, paice)
at that time was on the california huge stage in 1974 together along ELP, Black sabbath etc...
The whole set was on fire, Burn is the open song who is still incredible to listen, might just take your life is the second song (you can still find the great melody on it), smoke on the water and space trucking closed the set. the cameraman from ABC television was too close to the lead guitar player, it caused him aggressive and angry. This show is one of the finest Blackmore 's act on stage. this video is a Must for all purple fans."
