In 1969 Deep Purple premiered Jon Lord's groundbreaking "Concerto For Group And Orchestra" at the Royal Albert Hall. http://smarturl.it/DeepPurpleLSOdvd Thirty years later, in September 1999, Deep Purple and the London Symphony Orchestra returned to the same venue for the concerto's second performance. The centrepiece of the concert is of course the concerto itself but it is preceded by a short set of other Jon Lord tracks, songs from Roger Glover's "Butterfly Ball" (sung by Ronnie James Dio) and Ian Paice's jazz arrangement of the early Purple classic "Wring That Neck". Following the concerto are five Deep Purple classics culminating with "Smoke On The Water".
