Deep Purple - She Said 'Burn!' (Limited Edition on Clear Vinyl)
The inaugural California Jam was a legendary rock music festival co-headlined by Eagles, Black Sabbath, Deep Purple and Emerson, Lake & Palmer. It was held at the Ontario Motor Speedway in Ontario, California, on April 6, 1974.
California Jam attracted over 300,000 paying fans and set world records for the loudest amplification system ever installed, the highest paid attendance, and highest gross receipts. The performances were broadcast live on FM radio and broadcast nationwide on U.S. television.
Deep Purple made the eager crowd wait nearly an hour until near dusk before they went on stage. At the climax of the show, guitarist Ritchie Blackmore trashed his guitar and equipment then attacked one of the ABC network's video cameras. The infamous mishap with a pyrotechnic effect then caused one of Blackmore's amplifiers to explode, which briefly set the stage on fire. The group had to hastily leave the concert by helicopter to avoid a confrontation with furious fire marshals and a potential arrest for the pyrotechnics!
This powerful edition also comes bundled with your own admission code giving you unlimited access to the Music Legends e-book library where you can browse and download hundreds of music e-books and magazines to read at your leisure while you enjoy this great music.

The music on this record was originally produced in the days when vinyl was king.
Vinyl records produce an analog sound that reverberates and creates that famous warm sound you can't find in any other medium. The music and vocals on vinyl records are much closer to the way artists sound live.
Clear vinyl is softer and molds easier during the pressing process. Vinyl is a naturally clear substance. Black vinyl records are created by adding a charcoal /graphite colorant which creates a harder surface and makes it easier to see tracks but can lead to static build up in the cartridge . As a result, the best clarity of sound quality is to be found in using clear vinyl.
NB. Audio recordings from live TV and radio transmissions will always embody the audio limitations of the original sources . Modern digital remastering techniques improve sound quality immeasurably . However, the original broadcast performances have often been recorded and mixed by TV or radio technicians rather than music specialists. Nonetheless clear vinyl will give the very best reproduction given the limitations of the original broadcast sources.
