Deep Purple: Live In Copenhagen 1972 - Full 94 Minute Concert

Taped in 1972 at the band's Copenhagen show. 9 songs including "Highway Star," "Strange Kind of Woman," "Child in Time," "Space Truckin'," "Fireball," "Black Night" and more. You can now watch the complete 94 min concert below.

Deep Purple in 1972 were reaching the height of their success, with hit singles and albums worldwide. Into this heady atmosphere they delivered one of the most famous rock albums of all time, 'Machine Head'.

1972 saw them premier the new album at concerts in Europe, Japan and America (with no fewer than six tours there that year), delivering the powerful new "Machine Head" set. It was a concert in the Danish capital of Copenhagen that the first (and only) full film of the famous Mk 2 line-up presented here was made, and is now available on DVD for the first time.

The tour continued through to 1973 when Deep Purple returned to America, selling out more shows and shifting more albums than they had ever done. A camera crew turned up to film the group in New York in May for the 'In Concert' show, and this is also released here for the first time in glorious color (on any format), including the only performance of the line-up doing "Smoke on The Water".
