DEEP PURPLE - Machine Head (EMI 859506-2) UK 1974 Anniversary 2-CD edition
still factory sealed in new condition
The 1972 album that unleashed Smoke on the Water; Highway Star , and Space Truckin' on the hard-rockin' public became Deep Purple's definitive studio album; this remastered reissue not only sounds (much) better than ever, but it's joined by an original B-side, When a Blind Man Cries , and alternate mixes of every single song on the album!
Deep Purple were on the eve of breaking wide open when the quintet made Machine Head, a record that launched a heap of hard-rock hits, not to mention the bulk of the live album Made in Japan. No fewer than three classics were unveiled here: "Highway Star," "Space Truckin'," and their biggest hit ever, "Smoke on the Water." Ritchie Blackmore's crunchy guitar was becoming the group's trademark, and the throb that opens "Smoke on the Water" went miles in concretizing his place in the pantheon of 1970s guitar deities. But the story here is the second disc, which is composed of remixes by Roger Glover that introduce long-dormant, more-energized variations on the originals and revive separate solos.
