MSG 1974 [Machine Head, 2CD]

Live at Madison Square Garden, New York; March 13, 1974. Good to fairly good audience recording.

By 1974, Ian Gillan and Roger Glover had left the band. In their places were bassist/vocalist Glenn Hughes (at that time remembered for Trapeze) and vocalist David Coverdale. This new lineup released Burn in February 1974 and their spring tour included shows at Madison Square Garden, New York on 13 March. On this show, Coverdale is an able replacement while Blackmore definitely rocks.

  3. What has this to do with Deep Purple you TROLL?!!

    “In Internet slang, a troll is a person who sows discord on the Internet by starting arguments or upsetting people, by posting inflammatory, extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community (such as a newsgroup, forum, chat room, or blog) with the deliberate intent of provoking readers into an emotional response[3] or of otherwise disrupting normal on-topic discussion.”

  4. Yo Swappers,
    darth’s regular listings of TV listings actually are not off-topic, provocative or disruptive. We, the BigO readers, are a diverse group with only one thing in common: our live for good (however we define it) music. With that in mind, some of us may be very interested to know of the listings darth posts, and as such it contributes to those listeners’ happiness. By calling him a troll, YOU actually are the provocative one here. While you may not want your sister to marry him, it’d be more pleasant here if people were a little more thoughtful in responding to what darth writes and lose the knee-jerk vitriol.

  5. I’m with you @swappers. A troll he is!

  6. Rick…

    Darth/glen is a known con man liar rip off of artists’ stalker & troll…

    he can’t hide from his past nor his tons of drivel he has typed at this site…

    he is the village idiot the world would be better without his output anywhere…

    you simply can not believe anything he says…i dont read his stupidity anymore…

  7. You boys should get together over a nice plate of hot sausages, to discuss your differences, and become friends.

  8. I actually look forward to and appreciate darth’s comments. Having been around myself…jock on a real FM station from 1977 to 1981, when both the music and the radio mattered, and having met and shook hands with and talked personally with members of Foreigner, Bad Company, Supertramp, Frank Marino & Mahogany Rush, Fleetwood Mac, ELP, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band, The Who, Frank Zappa, Bob Dylan, Booker T & The MG’s, Jerry Lee Lewis, Chrissie Hynde (who I found real good-looking) & The Pretenders, The Allman Brothers, etc., etc., etc…I can read between the lines of darth’s comments and tell he is someone who was really and truly “there”. He drops the right names that only one who was deeply involved in the greatest musical era ever would know.

  10. Thanks, internetfind. That’s the kind of truly entertaining and informative comment we need more of around here, instead of the increasingly negative rantings of darth and his trollish sycophants.

    By Willis on Jul 28, 2014

  11. I vote with Rick and Mr. Jimmy. Darth’s comments are seen as occasionally insightful for those of us who have been away from the metro music centers for a few decades.

    Big O Amigos, thank you for the Dire Straits and Deep Purple, they could be fine background from a little Thompson-based bass fishing. Both will be handy this upcoming weekend. It looks like a long week coming. Respectfully, James

  12. My only complaint about darth is his godawful aversion to proper punctuation and capitalization. I suspect that’s part of what puts everyone on edge.

    By crawdad on Jul 28, 2014

  13. I should add that I’m by no means a grammar nazi– but at least give it a try, for God’s sake.

    By crawdad on Jul 28, 2014

  14. thanks mr jimmy. very kewl comments. my big era for running around with the rockers was 1980-95.

    in response to jerry -
    trading and even giving away for free is lumped together as unauthorized distribution. no one cares if u are receiving money for the items. it doesnt matter even if the items arent afixed to an actual medium. this argument was used and should have won in various cases including one law suit involving a frank sinatra case in fla. just like there should be differentiations made between bootlegging and counterfeiting/pirating and there isnt. just like theres no separation made between out of print recordings being copied and in print recordings. theres no difference between blanks and postage being offered and accepted and someone paying $20 for a copy of an item that isnt even officially available or something that is. something is totally legal in luxembourg but not right next door in italy. or here in america. its ok to copy something from 1963 but not 1964.
    u can call me all the names in the book u wish. just because u say im a liar or con man or manipulator doesnt make it so. yes i am denying what u claim. that doesnt mean my denials are false. if u are accused of things that arent true.. wouldnt u deny it? if u deny those accusations does that mean youre guilty of them? your logic doesnt make any sense. of course someone who isnt guilty is going to deny the accusations. its not just people who are guilty that deny things theyre accused of. sometimes innocent ppl do it too. if u have ever copied anything u have in your collection for anyone u are just as guilty of breaking the law. there is no rule that says what u do is acceptable. u may think its ok and a lot of other people who u trade with and share with also may think its ok.. but if u are going according to the law one minute u cant change that mind set the next minute and say well now i wont go along with it. either u abide by it or u dont. the law says u arent allowed to duplicate and distribute unauthorized recordings. period. not even one single copy. not for anyone ever. so if u have ever done this.. u have broken the law. u are no better than i am. the law doesnt distinguish between someone that sold and someone who traded. u may think they do. sorry for u.. they dont. they dont tend to prosecute people who trade but they can. people have been prosecuted for having 24 songs on their computers. they didnt sell copies. no money exchanged hands. do u keep up with the news?
    stop pointing fingers at me and realize that your info is not accurate. and what ppl say on newsgroups isnt factual. u can link to it 1000x but that wont make what it says more true. and it wont make u any less guilty of any infractions that u seem to think i am guilty of.

  15. Darth:
    So did you have any interaction with Pink Floyd?

    By James on Jul 29, 2014

  16. james - quite a bit. but my first time was actually not a good one. i had broken my foot on the way to a concert and roger waters was to appear on a local tv show in nyc called live at 5 on nbc along with uncle floyd who was also a local sort of celebrity. that was preempted by some sort of surgical procedure that ended up being more important. these things usually took up the last 5 or so mins of the 5pm-6pm time slot and were done at rockefeller center near radio city music hall. i was there waiting and was out of luck. i hobbled around on a broken foot/leg. running around looking for where roger and uncle floyd would be. no luck.
    i also knew that at the ziegfield theater slightly later the band would show up for a screening of the wall film a few blocks north so i hobbled up there as best as i could to get a few pics and a program. i also hoped to get into the show. i didnt have a ticket. i knew that they might not stay so i wasnt sure if i wanted to stay for the film either. i didnt. as they were leaving i snapped a few pics of them and talked to them slightly. that was my first time actually interacting with them. after that when my leg healed things got easier. each hotel they were at or appearances they made or performances they did i tried to be there in nyc. i got backstage at radio city in march 85 for roger and his hotel that week too. he congradulated me for being the only human being to see every live wall concert in the usa. i also told him i had seen 3 in england. all told i saw 15 of the 31 shows. more than anyone not paid.
    incidentally.. for ppl who have the radio city roger show from the radio brdcst.. the first half is from the 27th and the 2nd half and encores are from the 28th. only the 2nd half is live as it happened. there was a 20 min intermission. if u were listening on the radio.. there was only a 2 minute intermission. that should have told u something. it was the final show of the 2nd leg of the tour. the first leg had clapton on guitar. the 2nd leg had andy fairweather lowe.

    other times i had interaction with floyd members were at the china club when rick wright showed up and jammed one nite with ron wood and bowie and a few others. i happened to be there that nite. i dont remember if i had gotten word that something would happen or what but i was there and talked to rick for a few mins and took pics.
    when they were in town for their 87 88 and 94 shows i went to their hotels and other events they appeared at in an effort to meet them and take pics etc. floyd is my fave band so i always put extra effort in.
