When I was knee-high to everything my dad gave me Deep Purple's 'Live in London'. It blew my mind, and my ear drums.

I still have it on vinyl and until only recently on CD.

Soon after hearing Ritchie Blackmore shredding through solo after solo, and banging out the riff that lived on to drive guitar store staff crazy, all I wanted to do was be a bitchin' axe man.

While the purists believe that MKII with Ian Gillan and Roger Glover was the ultimate line up, David Coverdale was more than apt at fronting one of the largest and most influential bands of the 70s.

From the opening chords of 'Burn' through to the iconic 'Smoke on the Water' and finishing with the never-ending 'Space Trucking', this is an album that captures raw, hard rock, the way it should be listened...live.
