Amsterdam 1969 [BFOC Edition, 1CD]

Live at the Paradiso, Amsterdam, The Netherlands; August 24, 1969. Fair to good radio broadcast.

Thanks to duttka for sharing the tracks at Dime.

+ + + + +

This is one of the oldest Deep Purple recordings known to exist and was recorded in the very early MK II lineup days, before the “In Rock” or even the “Concerto” album had been recorded. This was a festival event with other bands, recorded at the “Paradiso Club” in Amsterdam. As there were other bands on the bill, no encores were played so these five numbers represent the entire set played by Deep Purple. The set kicks off with “Kneel And Pray” a very primitive version of the song that would become “Speed King”. This version has a completely different set of lyrics to the finished, recorded track. During the first half of this number you can hardly hear Ritchie’s guitar but after that it is right there were it should be. This is not a fault in the recording but a fault with the set up of the equipment on the night.

Unfortunately “Mandrake Root” is not the full version, only the first four and a half minutes is present here or on any other recording of this show that has turned up over the years. Some bootlegs have put out fake versions of this track with the missing section spliced in from another show, don’t be fooled by any of these. The full show was recorded by the Dutch radio station VPRO, who still hold the master tapes of the full show.

    By Jocko P on Apr 9, 2022

  16. Well, it’s time for me to put on my KKK hood and ride through all the ghettos and terrorize some niggas. The thought of nigger putting his coc k inside a white woman makes me want to vomit. I know Mark and whopper swappers attitude is live and let live. Not on my lawn. You two liberal faggots are obsolete in my book. The times need to rvert to the Jim Crow South and men like George Wallace and Bull Cnnor would hose the niggers down and attack wih the german shepherds

    By Derrick on Apr 9, 2022

  17. We need niggers to ride in the back of the bus and the plane. Re-establish black and white mens rooms and drinking fountains. Niggers need to remember and know their place in society. The are inferior to whitey. and dumb. Niggers like to fuck white trophies and then slap and punch them. just like Hitch

  18. I miss those midnite rides with the Klan. when we burned crosses on them coons lawns. Watch them come running out of the house and we lynch them and shoots them.We need those days

  19. I hate golf ever since Nigger Woods started playing. I cant believe the fascination for this fuckin monkey. He is 9 shots behind the lead and I bet no one can tell me who is the Masters Leader. I dont get it. What is the fascination for this pancake house waitress picker upper. Golf has its tiger and Tennis has its hyenas. Four times a year, the niggers are all the jew media espouses

    By Nelson on Apr 9, 2022

  20. It’s time for me to put on my KKK hood because I’m too chickenshit to let anyone see who I am. I’m a spineless pussy who needs to be in a group of equally spineless pussies to do my stupid toothless inbred hillbilly crimes.

    By Derrick on Apr 9, 2022

  21. My mom needs niggers to fuck her constantly in every filthy hole. Whitey just doesn’t have what it takes to satisfy her stanky whore ass.

    By Derrick on Apr 9, 2022

  22. I hate s e x with women and white men ever since black guys agreed to let me suck their diks and fuck my ass hard. I pay them well.

    By Frank on Apr 11, 2022

  37. What are all these gobblers doing on this site?? They really need to consider what h-e-l-l is really like before going on like this. Many have come back to testify that the pain is brutal, and the fire never ends. What eternal horror! Think about what you are heading for. Thanks Big-O for this … really good stuff.

    By Greg on Apr 13, 2022

  38. I’m just looking for the right fella, Greg

    Perhaps that’s you

    By U L E on Apr 13, 2022

  39. Greg, I gots a raging hardon and I needs to suck some man meat. Whats your pleasure big boy. I can loo and dress like a girl for you. I’ll get on my knees so tat you can fuck my face

    By swappers on Apr 13, 2022

  40. The horrors of h-e-l-l await. And it is sheer torment for ever and ever and ever….

    By Greg on Apr 14, 2022

  41. Greg, how do you know. You sound like you know from first-hand experience. Or is it that you are a homo and scared to admit it

    By Mark on Apr 14, 2022

  42. No, just afraid for you. It is pure horror for ever and ever. The souls in h-e-l-l have no love in them, they are immersed only in evil, separated from God forever, endlessly tormented by the demons.

    By Greg on Apr 14, 2022

  43. Hey Greg, you fit right in here with all the other weirdos…

    By swappers (the real one) on Apr 14, 2022

  44. Don’t say you haven’t been warned. Hey Big-O how about a little more Clapton? Whew that last one was excellent.

    By Greg on Apr 16, 2022

  45. Greg: Remember, haters hate and gobblers gobble with chapped lips and sore rectums. However, music lovers simply enjoy music.

  46. Greg, can i goes to hell with you. ill blow you all the way down

    By Θήο on Jun 14, 2022

  47. With no fear of hell and no promise of heaven, you see people as they really are. Some aspire to humanity, but most revel in their own filth. Lots of the latter gather here.

  48. Deference to op, some good entropy.
