Special features



Initiated by Simon Robinson at the DPAS, the Sonic Zoom label releases live recordings for collectors through mail order that aren't deemed suitable for general release through the shops.

The recordings are taken from radio broadcasts, soundboard tapes or audience tapes, and while the quality usually isn't as good as that of ordinary live albums, Sonic Zoom is sourcing the discs from the best available tapes and they remaster/restore the sound to ensure the highest possible quality. In short, Deep Purple fan with an insatiable taste for the band's live performances will not go wrong with a Sonic Zoom release.

So far there are three releases, with one more announced for release this year and further for next year.

  • Inglewood 1968 [PUR 205]
      Inglewood Forum, Los Angeles, USA - Oct 18, 1968
  • Kneel & Pray [PUR 207D]
      Casino, Montreux, Switzerland - October 4, 1969
  • Space Vol. 1 & 2 [PUR 202]
      Reiterstadion, Aachen, Germany - July 7, 1970
  • Denmark 1972 [PUR 203D]
      KB Hallen, Copenhagen, Denmark - March 1, 1972
  • Just Might Take Your Life [PUR 208]
      California Jam, Ontario Speedway, California - April 6, 1974
  • Perks And Tit [PUR 206]
      Sports Arena, San Diego, California - April 9, 1974
