Live in Paris, 1975


I'm just wondering what you lot think about that record.

I've been listening to it for a while, and I'm having a really hard time to like it just because of Glenn Hughes. To me, it sounds like he was heavily on drugs at the time, and his inbetween banter is truly embarresing. And he talks a lot! A LOT!

The band is great as always, but, again, Glenn ruins it for me. Coverdale doesen't sound good at that point either, but at least he had some dignity. Because of Glenn, Coverdale isn't talking much inbetween songs.

I can see why Blackmore left the band. I guess he realized the mistake he and the guys had made when they brought Glenn in. To much funk, and to much drugs!

Funny? Ok..... Could you give just one example of what he says that is , at least slightly, funny?

He's constantly adressing the crowd because they're not up to his standards (not enough "into it"), and to me his behaviour just goes to show that he at that time were a cocaine addict.

totally disagreed that GH ruins this concert. this concert is great, and no one is too much out of order to ruins the final result IMO.

Killer Bananas,

I totally agree with your take.

The bass player in my tribute band shared this album with me over a really nice tri-tip steak and beer at his place one Sunday afternoon, and I can honestly say, that both the steak and the beer almost came back up!!!!

I don't hate funk. But leave the funk to the people who do it [sign in to see URL] Brown, Tower of Power, etc.

When I listen to Purple I want screaming Hammond, searing guitar leads reminiscent of the 1970 to 72 period.

Blackmore almost played a background role in that [sign in to see URL] to me was a total surprise.

Jon Lord, I don't know why they wasted that poor man's time by even bringing him up [sign in to see URL] never heard the Hammond, just a bunch of chirping on the synths and over-use of the Hohner D6- Clavinet... because back in 1975 I suppose it was really cool for everyone to desperately try to sound like Stevie Wonder. I rather liked it when Jon Lord sounded like [sign in to see URL] enough.

Hughes' background squeals have never impressed me. A baby fur seal being clubbed to death sounds more melodic than that. Hughes' insistence that he vye for lead singer along side Coverdale is just absolutely appalling. If I were Coverdale, I 'd have taken away his mike and told him to sit in the corner and play bass like he was hired to do. I'd attach a 3 foot cable between his bass and his amp, so that he couldn't accidentally wander toward the front of the stage, where someone might actually hear something come out of his mouth.

If Deep Purple's collapse in 1976 was a train [sign in to see URL] Paris 1975 certainly was the moment where the engineer first saw the headlight of the oncoming train and first tried to apply the brakes. But by then, it was tragically too late.

Re: Live in Paris, 1975


While I understand the cricism GH is getting here, I really like the album. It sounds so damn powerful (compare this to the new LiL - the latter lacks all the power this one has)! And has DC ever sounded better than on this version of Mistreated - I don't recall has.

The Mk3 tracks, again, are all brilliant. I've never liked DP's version of Going Down (love the jam Jeff Beck and SRV used to do on their sole tour together in 1989), but the guitar trashing vechile, HS, sounds interesting in places. Just hear how different some of the soloing are to Mk2 days, and Glenn's bass work fires it up. The vocals on it are dreadful of course.

Paicey and Lordy are, like they were around this era, untouchable. Chack out the dynamics Paicey goes for in Gypsy, or Lordy peppering Stormbringer with those fat Hammond licks (even though the MIE version has even a better keyboard solo in it).

Don't get me wrong. I like the album, but IMO Hughes ruins what could've been a BRILLIANT album. The music is great (what can one expect with Paice, Lord and Blackmore in the band?), but the overall impression is that Hughes is just out of place. Sure, he's a great bassplayer, but his singing and funkinfected style just didn't belong in Purple.

Can't agree more. I always had my problems with a singing GH in Purple.
