    It is a great performance. One of the best Deep Purple concert videos I have ever seen and I have a lot of them.

    Completely ruined for me by Glenn Hughes. You've got David Coverdale singing in a rich, soulful and incredible voice, then Glenn Hughes ****ing screaming his tits off. Thanks Glenn.

    His funk-styled vocals kind of ruined Deep Purple and he still says he did well there.
    Still better than studio version, especially Lay Down Stay Down.

    Even though Coverdale was relatively unknown I believe when he joined Purple, there was never any need for a second vocalist as Coverdale replacing Gillan was a genius move.

    MK3 was an amazing band, just Glenn Hughes doesn't do it for me here.

    I have that Jam on CD and DVd, what a fantastic gig, I remember seeing t-shirts for sale in the shops over here advertising that gig:)

    Great concert! Like someone else said, Lay Down Stay Down is much better live than the studio version.

    Incredible festival all the way around. There was a "California Jam 2" LP. Does anyone know if the first Cali-Jam was ever released on vinyl?

    The story behind Blackmore being angry at this show involved their place in the set. It was in their contract that they wouldn't go on until the sun was down. Promoter were insisting they go on earlier. Blackmore locked himself in his dressing room and the police were called in to get him on stage, supposedly to prevent a riot. He was then pissed on stage and took it out on the camera. It cracks me up when he tosses the Marshall head off the stage.

    I have a few recently made DP documentaries that are worth watching.
