Deep Purple Bonus Discs

The classic Deep Purple line-up was capable of delivering devastating live sets, so news that four double disc sets capturing the band in concert in the 70's are slated for release comes as great news to fans.  Scandanavian Nights was recorded by Swedish radio during the group's 1970 tour in support of the In Rock album and features, Ritchie Blackmore, Ian Gillan, Jon Lord, Roger Glover and Ian Paice.  It includes a cover of the Stones Paint It BlackIn Concert 1970-1972 features extended versions of Speed King, Child In Time, Wring That Neck and Mandrake Root recorded in 1970 that each run close to 50 minutes.  The 1974 disc Live In London introduces David Coverdale and Glenn Hughes from shows done in support of the Burn album.  The final disc, MK III, The Final Concerts, showcases the group during the European tour mounted around the Stormbringer release and includes some of Blackmore's final performances with the band before forming Rainbow.
The four disc sets are due August 16 on Eagle Rock.
