Live In London is a live album by Deep Purple Mark III on the tour to promote the Burn studio album.
It was recorded at Gaumont State Theatre, Kilburn, London on 22 May 1974 and broadcast on the BBC but it was not released until 1982.
The 2007 remaster added one extra song, a 30+ minute version of Spacetruckin’.
Deep Purple Live In London
The Mark III version of Deep Purple waved goodbye to many of the early Purple classics and heavily featured songs from their newest studio album, Burn.
Burn – 7:46 (originally on the album Burn)
Might Just Take Your Life – 5:17 (Burn)
Lay Down, Stay Down – 5:29 (Burn)
Mistreated – 15:28 (Burn)
Smoke on the Water – 9:14 (Machine Head)
You Fool No One – 20:23 (Burn)
Space Truckin’ – 31:03 (Machine Head)
The members of Deep Purple Mark III were:
- David Coverdale – vocals
- Ritchie Blackmore – lead guitar
- Jon Lord – keyboards
- Glenn Hughes – bass and vocals
- Ian Paice – drums
The Mark II version of the band has gone down in history as a legendary band but I don’t think the Coverdale-Hughes version is given as much credit as it deserved.
Here are two songs from the California Jam in 1974

The Best Live Albums Ever
I haven’t included this album in the best hard rock and heavy metal live albums poll.There are so many excellent heavy rock live albums and I think it’s best for people who have a keen interest in Deep Purple.
Do you think it should be?
Because there are so many great hard rock and heavy metal live albums I have split the poll into two and you may find some of your favourites in the second division. Albums will be promoted when they get enough votes.Sorry, there are no polls available at the moment.
