This is the infamous concert where guitarist Ritchie Blackmore first attacked one of the ABC cameras that was coming between him and audience, hitting it several times with his guitar (which of course broke, and which he then threw to the audience). After that he also blowed up his Marshall amps.

The song "Lay Down, Stay Down" was also performed (after "Might Just Take Your Life").

Also released on VHS and DVD.

The US version was released by Mausoleum Classix/King Biscuit Records with a different cover (shown below) and a different title: Live at the California Jam.

Re-released in 2003 by VAP in Japan as California Jam 1974 and by Sonic Zoom/Purple Records as Just Might Take Your Life. It includes the previously missing "Lay Down, Stay Down". Japanese edition comes in CD sized papersleeve album replica, with Obi-strip and two inserts.
