Deep Purple Live At Montreux 1996

1996 • 1h 24m

By the time Deep Purple rolled into Montreux in July 1996 after six months touring they were delivering a set which was chock full of jaw-dropping musicianship. The group were in town to perform as part of the long-established Montreux Jazz Festival, an event held in the city since the mid-sixties and which has attracted top bands and performers from all areas of popular music -jazz, blues, pop, rock and world.They kick off with the rarely performed classic "Fireball", a hit for the group back in 1971 which they hadn't performed onstage for almost 25 years. Their set also included the classic tracks "Pictures Of Home " and "When A Blind Man Cries" (from "Machine Head"), as well as "Black Night" (their first European hit), "Woman From Tokyo" (from "Who Do We Think We Are") and a blistering version of "Speed King".
