GILLAN Live At The Marquee 1978


A must for all Deep Purple/Gillan collectors although the casual fan be warned as the sound quality is not great but the atmosphere and the set list make-up for any sound deficiencies. ****/5

Jason Ritchie,

The sound is totally ok for being salvaged from 30 year old tapes. The atmosphere tops most things and Ian was really at the top of his abilities. Apart from the feeling a solid booklet that provides amusing reading is included. So, to get a formidable dose of nostalgia – buy this CD, read, listen and smile!

…the real delight lies in less famous songs such as massively sprawling yet tightly grooving ‘I’m Your Man’ and the jazzed-up ‘Back In the Game’ that
this short-lived line-up take to like hungry vultures, with unrivalled energy. (March 2008)

The sound quality…is good enough to capture every thrill and musical chill the band delivered; Gillan at their headiest of live heights. (March 2008)

Not essential but bloody good fun nonetheless.

Feedback (April 2008)

…you’ll be entertained by perennial crowd pleasers from his Deep Purple days.

Kevin Bryan, Stirling Advertiser (April 2008)

…showcases the entire gig, including the Blackmore-fired encore, and stands proud among the very best of Gillan’s many archive releases.

Jo-Ann-Greene, Goldmine (May 2008)
