Pretty awesome music on this disc. It is all concert footage. It is from two separate concerts, from the dates in the title. These were around the time of the "Made in Japan" live album, if not on the same tour. The first (and main) part was performed in Copenhagen and the filming is fairly poor. For one thing it is in black and white. For another the filming seems quite amateurish, or perhaps it was a crew who did not know much about rock music. The camera was frequently on a different part of the band than the main part of the music. When Ritchie Blackmore was on a guitar solo, the camera would be on Glover or Lord and vice versa. The second, shorter part was a show in New York City. The filming is much, much better, in color, and the camera shows what it needs to show. Unfortunately, it is edited for time, and the songs are truncated. I recall seeing this on the "In Concert" television program back in the Seventies.
Really this would only be of interest to fans of Deep Purple, and although it has major faults, I suppose we are lucky that there is any footage at all surviving to this day.
