Speed King promo video

An excellent quality (given the time) promo video for the Speed King. It appears that it is lipsync’ed to the single edit of the track (minus keyboard intro):

    Hi Deep Purple! Excuse my enlgish, have your got “myspace”? I don´t found It. My name is Asier, from Bilbao (Bilbo, Pais Vasco, Spain). I was in your concert into “Velódromo de Anoeta” in 2004/2005, I don´t remember it very well. If you wont request me, for me is a… ok, simply very “nice”, musical “nice”. Thanks. Un saludo, your “musical” friends, 20 years ago…

    Yeah, it’s not a promo, but a snip from the German “Vicky Leandros Show”, mention some time ago by Simon at deep-purple.net site. A nice one, though – never seen it before…

    Hello boys and girls! I think I’ve been a hard Deep Purple fan almost 25 years now. I am absolutely certain that I saw the first time Rogel Glover with NO HAT or something like that!

    The clip is from German TV “Vicky Leandros Show” aired April 1970.

    The show was repeated last month in “arte-TV” – therefore the good quality.
    It also featured “Into the Fire” as short intro.

    Great video! Typically for that time (cf. “Beat Club”).

    Ok video, but more important – THAT IS DEEP PURPLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    I know this is 37 years ago or so, but they where superior to the rest, and in a way they still are. Only Mrk II or III can beat them now.
    Forget Zep and Sabbath.
