Is this a quality release?

I'm always wary of albums by major artists on labels I've never heard of.

Probably worth getting...

...although the samples offered for "Highway Star', 'Lazy' and 'Space Truckin' are totally worthless.

Classic Deep Purple

Classic Deep Purple from their prime with the Ritchie Blackmore - Ian Gillian lineup.

They Say All Music Guide

This March 1, 1972 show was filmed by Danmarks Radio, Denmark’s national television and radio station. It was eventually released on video, which in turn led to some CD bootlegs of the audio portion of the concert. This double CD is not only legitimate but is an improvement on those bootlegs, as the sound was taken directly from the original video audio reel, and the discs are packaged with eight pages of detailed liner notes. It could be taken as the bridge between Machine Head and Live in Japan, as Machine Head had been recorded just a few months earlier at the end of 1971, but Made in Japan would not be recorded until five months after this Danish gig. Deep Purple fans won’t find this on par with either Machine Head or Live in Japan, but those whose purple streak runs deep will probably like this set, as the sound quality’s pretty good and not far below official release standard. Just three songs from Machine Head (“Highway Star,” “Black Night,” and “Space Truckin’”) make it in, though, most of the other five tracks coming off Fireball, with a cover of Little Richard’s “Lucille” thrown in. That’s right, that means that there’s no “Smoke in the Water,” which had yet to assert itself as a hit single. In the tradition of live albums by loud bands, the performances tend toward the overextended side, particularly “Space Truckin’,” which balloons to a 22-minute length courtesy of much noodling jamming. – Richie Unterberger
