Anyways the biggest mistake they made was to play famous Mk II songs like Highway Star, Lazy.. (Smoke is spécial case..) although to play others Mk II songs never played like Pictures or Never before or No no no (so Mk III songs).. I think it would be better than the old Mk II standards..

you are right at that time blackmore was the star and people can not imagine purple without even if come taste is better than stombringer
most of live boot cd from mark 4 are very good and not so boring than mark 3 (space truckin for ex wich belong to mark2)

and now with the test of time come taste is see like a very good album ..and where is blackmore now...nowhere lost in is dreams
