People: Ritchie Blackmore (gtr), David Coverdale (vcl), Glenn Hughes (bss/vcl), Jon Lord (kbr) and Ian Paice (drm). Video produced by Tony Edwards. Album coordinated by Tim Chacksfield and Simon Robinson.

Recorded and aired live by ABC-TV on 6th April 1974 at the Ontario Speedway near Los Angeles CA.

The track "Lay down, stay down" was also done (after "Might just take your life"), but was later edited off - Gods knows why! The concert was subsequently released on CD in 1996.
