Paris 1975 is a live album by the British hard rock band Deep Purple, recorded in 1975 at the Palais des Sports in Paris. It was meant to be released before the 1975 Come Taste the Band album, but was not released until 2001 by Purple Records.
In early 1975, the guitarist Ritchie Blackmore recorded his first album, Ritchie Blackmore’s Rainbow with Rainbow and decided to leave Deep Purple. This made the band’s show in Paris on 7 April 1975 a historic moment in their long career, marking Blackmore’s final appearance with the band until the band reformed in 1984.
The set took in tracks from Burn, Stormbringer and Machine Head/Made in Japan, and featured the band’s Mk III line up for the last time. It was also the last time Deep Purple ever played the songs “The Gypsy”, “Lady Double Dealer”, “Mistreated” and “You Fool No One” live, though Rainbow and Whitesnake have played “Mistreated” in concert, and Whitesnake has played “Lady Double Dealer” on their early concerts.
