Made In Japan was recorded live over three nights during August 15 17, 1972 at Festival Hall, Osaka and Budokan, Tokyo. Four of the tracks come from the band s 1972 Machine Head album. It featured what many consider the classic Deep Purple lineup Ian Gillan (Vocals), Ritchie Blackmore (Guitars), Roger Glover (Bass), Jon Lord (Organ) and Ian Paice (Drums). Originally recorded only for the Japanese market, the album has since become seen as one of Deep Purple s seminal albums, and one of the greatest live albums of all time (A Rolling Stone reader s poll in 2012 voted Made In Japan as the sixth greatest live album of all time).
For 2014, the album has been newly remastered and presented in a number of special formats. The format options include previously unseen footage on DVD, bonus material and mixes, memorabilia and a hardback book.
This Limited Edition Deluxe Boxed Set includes remastered audio of all three complete shows across 4CDs, a DVD featuring rare documentary and live footage, a 7" promo single, and a 60+ Page hard bound book filled with rare and previously unseen photos and memorabilia.
