    Not sure what’s going on… perhaps Nick had never seen this, but I somehow doubt that. It’s on the DVD. I just like that an official source uploaded it at YT.

    Both, NO NO NO take 1 and take 2, Beat-Club Studio Hamburg 1971, are on the DVD “History, Hits & Highlights ’68 – ’76”, so there is nothing new about this.

    Greetings, Lutz

    Blues phrasing, staccato guitar, harmonic and reverb on and Leslie off settings on the Hammond, whammy-wiggling antics, goofy clothes…Ritchie’s Pilgrim phase… This is what I think of when I think of Deep Purple: back-to-basics, kiss-my-asphalt /devil may care ‘tude before things got too big–including Paicey’s kit. Purple at their best. This is required viewing for any kid who thinks muscle cars are old and fart-can exhaust econoboxes are cool.

    Deep Purple. The Hemi ‘Cuda of heavy rock. It’ll jolt your jones and shake your bones…

    Ritchie’s sound, timing, phrasing and feel on this are amazing…For me this is Blackmore at his very best…

    Ahh, Thanks, Nick. Entertaining piece but it’s actually not a rehearsal take but the actual aired take without the album stenciled over the cam lens. I’ve had this video in my possession since 1983, I speak fact here. Not impressed with how they titled this on the DVD and at YT for that matter. It’s simply false historical information.

    Always pleasant to see and listen to again, but it’s a very known video…

    One of the interesting moments from the other take (when they all have to stop) is when Blackmore messes up the riff coming out of the solo. When you watch his reaction, and especialy his eyes after that, it is revealing as you can see the wheels turning in his eyes big time.

    Great clips these old ‘live’ songs, Gillan sounds a little hoarse, but from him that is almost expected, as he pushed his vocal too hard in many ways ‘back in the good old days’! What a wonderful guitar tone that Strat has, Blackmore at his best, forget the rest! Cheers.
