Line-up (members)

Recorded at the San Diego Sports Arena on April 9 1974 during the band's U.S tour in support of Burn. It was released in 2004 in celebration of its 30th anniversary and 29 years after this incarnation of the group (Mark III) dissolved. The album was made officially available (via mail order) by Purple Records and the Deep Purple Appreciation Society (DPAS)[1] for a limited time through its Sonic Zoom imprint, although many bootlegs of the show had circulated for years.

This album was recorded at the final show of a highly successful American tour, the first to feature new members David Coverdale (Lead vocals) and Glenn Hughes (Bass, vocals) replacing Ian Gillan and Roger Glover respectively, and just 3 days after Deep Purple's legendary performance at the California Jam. Many fans in attendance to both shows agree that the band managed to outdo themselves with this show, reaching new levels of musical brilliance. This could be partly attributed to the fact that the band, and especially guitarist Ritchie Blackmore, were eager to firmly establish the new lineup in the minds of American fans.

Even though the show is considered to be one of the best in a career full of great shows, the resulting album failed to capture the whole show: indeed, while it wasn't intended to be "officially" recorded (a fact stated by Hughes himself during the performance), soundboard recordings (essentially a sort of "sound log" done by the sound engineers on a regular basis to fine-tune their settings) were rolling along, and they are the source for this release. But those recordings are in fact incomplete, missing "You Fool No One" and encore number "Space Truckin". The final running time of the record is roughly 50 minutes, while the actual show came close to the 80 minute- plus mark.

This recording was re-released by Purple Records via Sonic Zoom on September 3 2007, now simply titled "Live in San Diego 1974". While it has been fully restored and cleaned up from the original tape sources (restoring some between song patter previously edited), it still features the same, incomplete track list as the original release.
