Biography

Deep Purple survived a seemingly endless series of lineup changes and a dramatic mid-career shift from grandiose progressive rock to ear-shattering heavy metal to emerge as a true institution of the British hard rock community; once credited in the Guinness Book of World Records as the globe's loudest band, their revolving-door roster launched the careers of performers including Ritchie ...

Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Judging by the thick chugging that Deep Purple pull off as they enter "Highway Star" on this classic 1972 set, this band was of an era that appreciated size in sound. Ritchie Blackmore's guitar and Jon Lord's keyboards owned the evenings on the quintet's Japanese tour, giving the band a front-end density that kept drummer Ian Paice's snap heavy and loud. On tour in support of Machine Head, Deep Purple indulged in some great long-form jams, reaching into the 10-minute range for most of the main set and closing with the now-famed live read of "Space Truckin'." The prizes here fill the second, far shorter, CD, which consists of the encores Deep Purple played throughout the Japan tour. "Speed King" is another statement on the unflappable (and surprisingly unironic) focus that Blackmore and company had on either cars or their very rapid motion. There's a reason this is regarded by many as one of hard rock's cornerstone live recordings. It's a boiler. --Andrew Bartlett

Product Description

5.0 out of 5 stars POWER AND GLORY! April 14, 2006
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
oh yeah....THIS is why I always liked Purple more than Led Zep, nothing against Zep mind you. This has got to be one of the all time great live recordings by a rock band. For me, 'Highway Star' says it all. This version makes the one on MACHINE HEAD pale by comparison, and that WAS a good version! They are simply firing on all cylinders on this track, the big Purple sound in all its glory.

Jon Lord is one of my all time favorite Hammond players, he just makes the damn thing breath fire. His playing on this track and CD just goes to confirm why the Hammond organ, in the right hands, is one of the greatest instruments ever created. It is such a powerful instrument and Lord takes full advantage. He was the X factor in this band, the perfect compliment to Blackmore's fiery guitar work, what a duo! Gillan's voice is in great form and what can I say about Ian Paice on drums, one of my favorite drummers ever since I was turned on to the IN ROCK recording way back when. And of course, Roger Glover is the glue that holds it all together. For me, they just don't make bands like this anymore. The MKII version remains one of my favorite bands beacuse I loved the songs and they had the musical chops to back it up. THIS is what good, solid hard rock music is all about. Oh yeah, one of the highlights of my life was to actually meet and talk with Ritchie Blackmore back in the 80's. Crank this bad boy up and stand back, no turkey is served here, LONG LIVE PURPLE!!!

THE BAND: Ritchie Blackmore (guitars), Ian Gillan (vocals), Jon Lord (keyboards), Roger Glover (bass), Ian Paice (drums & percussion).

THE DISC: (1973) 2 vinyl albums now on 1 disc. 7 songs clocking in at approximately 77 minutes. Included with the disc is a 6-page booklet with original artwork and black & white photos, song titles, song times, and a brief 1-page intro. Songs recorded live in Tokyo and Osaka, Japan. A new '25th Anniversary Edition' 2-disc version is available as of 1998 - with digitally remastered sound and bonus tracks (and very much worth looking for)... an added 21 minutes featuring the songs "Black Night", "Speed King" and "Lucille". There is also a more complete (rare) 3-disc version availabe as well. Label - Warner Bros.

COMMENTS: "Made In Japan" is perhaps one of the best live recordings of a hard rock / heavy metal act ever. Think of the other classic acts that had great live albums from the past... Peter Frampton, Led Zeppelin, Kiss, Foghat, UFO, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Iron Maiden, etc. Outside of Kiss, I don't think any of these recordings offer the full package of excellent sound quality/production, emotion, excitement, audience participation, and a great selection of songs. The audience was respectfully quiet during the songs and really let it out in between them. The slower parts of "Child In Time" - you can hear a pin drop. It's interesting to listen, when "Smoke On The Water" is introduced by Gillan the crowd is silent... almost like they're not sure what they're about to hear. The 6 minute drum solo on "The Mule" was enthralling from Ian Paice - one of the best rock drummers EVER. Jon Lord's keyboard work is 2nd to none. His best work on this album is on the songs "Lazy" and "Child In Time".

5.0 out of 5 stars Ian Paice On The Drums...Yes!!! May 10, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Arguably one of the best live documents from one of the best hard rock bands ever. It has never sounded better having finally been remastered. Sure some of the songs stretch out a little (well some more than a little ie "Space Truckin"), but that's what makes this album so great. The band uses the studio versions to springboard into some of the finest rock jams ever put on tape. If you have the 2 lp vinyl set (and I know you're out there), definitely upgrade to this cd version. Every rock collection needs & deserves this album, I hope my review can give you the nudge toward the "add to cart" button.

5.0 out of 5 stars What hard rock in the 1970s was all about March 29, 2005
Format:Audio CD
This is the only live document of Mark 2 Deep Purple you'll ever need. The superb improvisational skills of each member of the band are constantly on display; these are long sprawling jams travelling at breakneck speed. I can't even begin to describe how enjoyable this record is to listen to. Sure, these songs are incredibly long but excess was what hard rock in the 1970s was all about. Each band member shines here.

There is one thing about this package that is a little bit confusing, though. Even though I do own the 25th Anniversary Edition, the edition I own contains remastered versions of the studio tracks played here live. I have looked but I can't seem to find it. That's a good thing, however. I felt the studio tracks were somewhat unnecessary and detracted from the whole experience, anyway. Buy this set now, especially because it doesn't have the annoying and somewhat superfluous remastered studio tracks.

What's the long and the short of all this, I hear you ask? It is that no self-respecting hard rock fan or Deep Purple fan should be without this set. 100% classic!

THE BAND: Ritchie Blackmore (guitars), Ian Gillan (vocals), Jon Lord (keyboards), Roger Glover (bass), Ian Paice (drums & percussion).

THE DISC: (1973) Originally 7 songs clocking in at 77 minutes; 2 vinyl album presented on one disc. This digitally remastered "25th Anniversary" edition (1998) contains a 2nd disc with 3 bonus songs, "Black Night", "Speed King" and a 50's cover "Lucille". Disc-2 clocks in at approximately 21 minutes. Included with the discs is a 14-page booklet with original artwork and bonus color band photos, song titles, song times, and a brief 3-page intro. Songs recorded live in Tokyo and Osaka, Japan. There is also a (most complete) rare 3-disc version availabe as well. Originally on Warner Bros label, this remastered edition is on Rhino.

The audience was respectfully quiet during the songs and really let it out in between them. Incredibly, no added audience filler noise! The slower parts of "Child In Time" - you can hear a pin drop. It's interesting to listen, when "Smoke On The Water" is introduced by Gillan the crowd is silent... almost like they're not sure what they're about to hear.

Growing up on Deep Purple in the 70's, this album was a thrill ride that I thought came only second to Deep Purple In Rock. It holds up very well, especially Blackmore and Paice.
