Strange Kind Of Woman
Child In Time
2015, Opening with an 11-minute long ,,Speed King", the show actually starts off like a climax, with a frenzy of organ and batter of guitar and drums, before segueing into a fast and furious riff and some classic caterwauls from Ian Gillan. Next up is ,,Strange Kind Of Woman". The piledriving central motif is a classic combination of rhythm and riff, the band hitting a bluesy, even funky, groove. Following is an impressive version of the Deep Purple classic ,,Child In Time": it is 20 minutes of heavy action from Blackmore. If you're not too exhausted by that, there is time for one more, and it's a good - not to mention long - one: ,,Mandrake Root", a 27-minute extrapolation of the debut album track and concert standby. All in all, the frenzy, powerful show is leaving the audience staggered, and not a little dazed, as they head towards the exit, into the warm California night, wondering what the hell just happened.
