No they are not and never were... I´m not fan of DP´s Cal Jam performance as you probably know, it´s a bit overhyped performance due to size of audience. emoticon




what is it exactly that puts you off the cal jam performance

[sign in to see URL] Paices blistering performance?
[sign in to see URL] Lords AWESOME display of keyboard brilliance
[sign in to see URL] Blackmores clear demonstration that he was at the time the greatest rock guitarist on the planet??

Now if you state that it was GHs annoying Stevie Wonder impressions then i can accept that emoticon

Instrumentally DP have NEVER been better than the MK3 era Blackmore Lord and Paice were at the absolute peak of their powers back then.



That´s your opinion... To me, Cal Jam is simply extremely dirty performance, so dirty that it´s a bit too much for me. Rarely listen to that performance. BTW havent I already mentioned that I have never been fan of 25 or 30 mins Space Trucking or Mandrake Root or whatever? emoticon Plus considering my dislike of some particular songs on Burn - they were part of this show to - Lay Down Stay Down (which is IMO personified rock cliche crap) and You Fool No One (which must be the most overrated DP track ever). So... no I´ve never been fan of Cal Jam and never will be. emoticon




WOW!!! ok then emoticon
so basically your not actually a 70s hard rock fan ?your a Morse era DP fan.
Not sure what you mean by a dirty performance either??Blackmore had possibly the best tone hes ever had at that time and the band played [sign in to see URL] explain?



I agree about Cal Jam. A great performance by the Big Three. Coverdale and Hughes were OK, as they hadn't devolved into the MKII killing machine that they became. Cov was a bit off-key and Hughes squealed more than enough, but they were passable.

Some tunes come alive when played live. 'You Fool No One' is one of those tunes. Ritchie at his nasty best. Paice and Lord cranking and Paice's solo was excellent and not overly long. I think that it is the best tune from the show. 'Lay Down Stay Down' was nice, but it is really filler and not on all the Cal Jam releases, but played well non the less.

DP in those years were at the forefront of bands in the US and worldwide. What killed them was Blackers leaving and the Coverdale/Hughes combo, who could be just cringe-worthy. They were better on their own.

Either way, arena shows are a blast. Nothing wrong with DP playing them and I think that they do well at them.

Re: Arte Tv - Deep Purple beim Hellfest 2017.


California Jam is a good show overall. There were much better shows in '74, LIVE IN LONDON for instance. But Cal Jam is nothing to be ashamed of, especially considering the size of the audience and the television cameras, both of which can be off-putting to the nerves. Space Truckin' was a bit of a mess musically, but that night it was more about The Vengeance of Blackmore than anything else.

I agree that 'Live In London' may be a better show, but I think that 'You Fool No One' is better at Cal Jam. 'Space Truckin' at Cal Jam has to be seen to understand what is happening on stage. Just listening to it, it can seem to be a bit disjointed. Blackers was just a wild man, putting on a great show for the fans. Anyone who was there will never forget it.

I forgot to mention one thing - compared to others, I´m obviously very different in terms of opinion about instruments destruction ala Ritchie or Keith Moon occasionaly did. IMO it´s not "cool rocknroll show" stuff - it´s utter dumb stuff. emoticon

I agree about the Who. Very over rated in my book. As for the Cal Jam, Mistreated and YFNO were the highlights. Glen's solo in ST killed all the momentum in that song!

Re: Arte Tv - Deep Purple beim Hellfest 2017.


I've never witnessed an instrument destruction live (by any band), so maybe I would have a different opinion if I was there in person and caught up in the atmosphere, but "from a distance" I have to agree with ptr -- it looks stupid, sounds terrible, doesn't add anything interesting to a show, and I don't think it's cool at all.

It was Jimi Hendrix who started it, yes? Used to burn his guitar and destroy it.

Being such an influence everyone else had to do it too of course..
