    Aren’t the 3 bonus tracks from the Long Island College show that was/is the source of the only real COLOR footage of MK II?

    Les Hedger says:

    Yes, it is the source. Most of us probably have this on DVD already.

    – Why these re-issues when they already are out on Sonic Zoom?

    I know that Sonic Zoom-releases have changed the l-r channel for some daft reason.

    But is that enough to merit a whole new catalogue of re-releases?

    why the stormbringer era logo, its shoddy as….get it right!

    The Velvet Lapel says:


    I just ordered and received the Sonic Zoom edition not 2 weeks ago to pad an order from Amazon for free shipping even though I had the DVD. Much rather would have had this (cheaper in the US) version for the interview since I already have the ’73 songs on DVD.

    Oh well, the collection just keeps getting larger and larger…….(and did I really need Now What on CD and Vinyl?)

    Pre-ordered mine a month ago. Saw them a couple weeks before the New York show in 1973. Looking forward to this re-master. Have this show already too but any new release from Purp!e is always a treat.

    ronnie says:

    stormbringer logo would be the most used today, there is a reason, i guess.

    Dave says:

    I bet it will sound even more squashed than the original issue,

    Dan says:

    These bonus tracks should be interesting. I saw Deep Purple for the first time on June 1 1973 at the New Haven coliseum, just 3 days after these bonus tracks were recorded. To this day that was the BEST concert I have ever seen in my life – and I have seen ALOT of concerts from many different bands in my 55 years of living. I still have my ticket stub. My seat cost $3.50. Sat right in back of Ian Paice. If my arms were 10ft longer I probably could have touched him. Billy Preston was the opening act.

    john says:

    they should release LIVERPOOL 1976 last show

    not only the re-released live albums which everyone already bought it,….it bores us!

    qed says:

    There is another new remastered version of this concert available on the web somewhere.

    I WAS THERE!!!!!!!!!!
