It took a long time for Purple to put out a live record, but when they finally did, it proved they were the greatest heavy metal band on stage. The time was right, after the crushing success of 'Machine Head', their most ambitious record by that time. The place was right as well, a far foreign land that back then wasn't that popular to go on tour as nowadays. Purple were the first to conquer the enthusiastic Japanese audience with their spectacular live shows. Kiss, Scorpions, Judas Priest, Queen and the rest came afterwards. These guys stage performances were already incredible before this live recording was released, but it captured the magic and brilliance of the band at its best for the enjoyment of fans worldwide.

This double live album features the highlights from three immense shows: 17th August in Tokyo, 15th and 16th of that same month in Osaka, 1972. Three amazing shows with Deep Purple unleashed, incredibly inspired on each number. The stunning energy and passion of these live versions is far superior to the studio originals, much faster, intense and heavy. The epic opening track 'Highway Star' or the classic 'Smoke On The Water', for instance, are totally raw, devastating, featuring those abrasive raging riffs of Blackmore completely insatiable, shredding like mad. The aggression and violence of these tunes increased on stage, the band sounds completely motivated and furious, much more than in the studio. This albums demonstrates Deep Purple have always been a live band, they don't need studio tricks and stupidities in their music, no overdubs, just honesty and brilliance, proving their true potential in front of their fans. Tracks like 'Child In Time' or 'Lazy' are an exhibition of that outstanding talent, superior virtuosism and creativity, with those extended instrumental passages you won't find in their studio LPs, those endless improvised jams plenty of technique and exquisite musicianship. An absolutely unpredictable set-list of renewed classics that give the chance to every band member to demonstrate their abilities. Gillan's finest vocal work ever and most astonishing screaming display can be found on 'Strange Kind Of Woman', which still nowadays sounds so wild. 'The Mule' as well, with that lengthy skilled impressive drum solo of Paice going crazy is pure art and delight. And 'Space Truckin'' offers the best finale possible, the epitome of 70's heavy metal instrumental supremacy in twenty minutes of total catharsis, complexity and improvisation.
