Reception[edit | edit source]

Speaking of the June 17 show, Billboard's Mark Bego remarked that "Projecting an ample amount of sound to fill a room twice the size of the Beacon, Blackmore's quintet played a blasting, frenzied set underneath an arcing strobe and rainbow scrim. Performing such trademarks as "Up To The Silver Mountain", "Stargazer" and "Catch The Wind," the emphasis was on screeching guitar wails. The tone was one of wildness June 17. Blackmore got down on some mellow electronics on "Mistreated" while Ronnie James Dio lamented "losing his mind." [2] A more mixed review would be from Bob Ross of the St. Petersburg Times, who stated that "Being the former lead guitarist of Deep Purple does not make one a $6 attraction. His heavy-metal version was not as offensive as Savoy Brown's pulsating migrane thump, but another dose of Roy Buchanan would have been far preferable from a musical standpoint". [3]
