The Final Concerts
- Deep Purple
- Release: Out Now
In March 1975, Deep Purple embarked on a European
tour. Unbeknownst to the band, guitarist Ritchie Blackmore
had decided to leave and these were his final shows with the group he had helped found nearly a decade earlier.
Featuring the Mk III lineup with newcomers David Coverdale & Glenn Hughes joining old stalwarts Jon Lord, Ian Paice &
Blackmore, this show was recorded in support of Stormbringer, the second album to feature the Mk III lineup.
