The 1970s were truly a successful era for hard rock legends Deep Purple. This Mark III band superstar act now featured the much revered line up of the original guitar hero Ritchie Blackmore, keyboard great Jon Lord, power drummer Ian Paice, and new cohorts the superlative Glenn Hughes on bass and superstar vocalist David Coverdale.
In support of their then huge current albums Burn (FRMLP2766) and STORMBRINGER, Deep Purple took to the road for many sell out shows of the next several years and recorded what would become the final album of their long platinum plus run with Warner Bros. Records, the amazing MADE IN EUROPE.
Filled with blazing guitar licks from Ritchie Blackmore, searing vocals from David Coverdale and an arena powered rhythm section courtesy of Deep Purple, the band opens the LP with the hugely popular Burn. The fire continues to excel with their legendary blues cruncher Mistreated, featuring some highly touted guitar licks by Ritchie Blackmore as well.
Never fear more hard rock is here as side two blows your speakers apart with the extended power rocker You Fool No One from 1973s Burn. Jon Lord gets a special showcase in the beginning intro of the tune, as the band jumps in on the familiar chord progression, making this a major highlight listen of this wonderful live album. The apocalyptic warning of Stormbringer closes out the album and is possibly one of the most rockin versions ever of this time honored classic.
