Live in Concert 72/73
Recorded March 1, 1972, this concert set recorded in Copenhagen was originally filmed for Denmark Radio. The actual black and white footage was never screened in full and ended up lying dormant in the company's vaults. A camera crew turned up to film the group also in May 1973 in New York for the In Concert show, also included here for the first time in color. Bonus material includes archive collection preview, live track from California Jam, 1974, credits, links, and history.
In 1972, British hard-rock band Deep Purple launched a massive world tour in support of their landmark proto-metal album MACHINE HEAD. This concert film captures two stops on the MACHINE HEAD tour, both featuring the classic lineup of guitarist Ritchie Blackmore, singer Ian Gillian, keyboardist Jon Lord, bassist Roger Glover, and drummer Ian Paice. Filmed in black and white on March 1, 1972, in Copenhagen, the first performance boasts the only time this lineup was ever captured on film for a full-length concert.
