Limited double 180gm vinyl LP pressing in gatefold sleeve. Deep Purple need no introduction as one of the all-time great British Rock bands. Their association with Montreux goes back to the early '70s, when their attempt to record their album Machine Head at the Montreux Casino was thwarted when it promptly burnt down, forcing them to make the album in the rooms and corridors of the Grand Hotel instead. The story was, of course, immortalized in their classic song 'Smoke on the Water' which is the climax of this 1996 concert from the Montreux festival. 12 tracks.
