Live At Montreux 2006 - They All Came Down To Montreux

Very smart clean double album housed in a nice crisp cover.

Amazing 180 gram limited edition double gatefold vinyl reissue of this Deep Purple live album recorded in 2006. Deep Purple need no introduction as one of the all-time great British rock bands. Their association with Montreux goes back to the early seventies, when their attempt to record their album "Machine Head" at the Montreux Casino was thwarted when it promptly burnt down, forcing them to make the album in the rooms and corridors of the Grand Hotel instead. The story was, of course, immortalized in their classic song "Smoke On The Water". Few bands are more closely associated with Montreux than Deep Purple and there was simply no other contender when it came to choosing the act to headline the closing night of the 40th Montreux Festival in 2006. The band duly delivered one of their finest live performances, sprinkling songs from their latest album "Rapture Of The Deep" through a set chock full of their classic tracks and of course, a show-stopping performance of "Smoke On The Water".
