DEEP PURPLE: 'Live In California 74' To Be Released On CD And Digital Formats

In honor of the 40th anniversary of the historic California Jam festival, Eagle Rock Entertainment will release DEEP PURPLE "Live In California 74" for the first time on CD and Digital Audio on April 1.

By the mid-Seventies, DEEP PURPLE was one of the biggest-selling rock acts in America, and "Live In California 74" demonstrates exactly why. Taking place at the end of the band's 28-date tour promoting "Burn", the CD showcases the group performing before 200,000 people as the headliner of the California Jam festival. Closing their trek with a triumphant climax, the potent lineup of Ritchie Blackmore (guitar), David Coverdale (vocals), Glenn Hughes (bass), Jon Lord (keyboards) and Ian Paice (drums) pummel through an explosive set of songs from "Burn", as well as classics like "Space Truckin'" and "Smoke On The Water".

40 years later, this set still resonates as a concert for the ages. Previously released on DVD in 2006, the "Live In California 74" album is an absolutely must-have for any DEEP PURPLE fan's collection.

"Live In California 74" track listing:

01. Burn
02. Might Just Take Your Life
03. Lay Down, Stay Down
04. Mistreated
05. Smoke On The Water
06. You Fool No One
07. Space Truckin'
