Last time I saw Purple was back in '94, with this rather temporary line-up, and it was a weird but enjoyable experience.
Listening to the St. Gallen bootleg this afternoon it just sounds like they're having so much fun, and Satch is flying. I can't be arsed with his solo stuff, but in this context he is just incredible. Blackmore was pretty good, but he seems to be on a different level.
Any other fans of this particular combo?
