Deep Purple are set to release 'Graz 1975', a previously unavailable 70 minute live performance, on CD, vinyl and various digital formats in September.
On April 3, 1975 the Mk III line-up of Deep Purple – guitarist Ritchie Blackmore, frontman David Coverdale, bassist/vocalist Glenn Hughes, keyboard player Jon Lord and drummer Ian Paice – performed at the Liebenauer ice rink, located on the outskirts of mountain-cradled Graz, Austria’s second largest city after Vienna.
Enthused by Deep Purple’s arrival in town, the local press dubbed the concert “das Rockereignis des Jahres [the rock event of the year]”. And it was – in more ways than one.
Previously unreleased in its entirety, Graz 1975 – will soon be available in North America on September 23th, 2014 on earMUSIC / Eagle Rock Entertainment.
