Editorial Reviews

2012 sees the 40th anniversary of the release of Deep Purple's landmark album Machine Head . In recognition of Deep Purple's influence, and that of the Machine Head album in particular, some of rock music's biggest names have each contributed a version of their favorite track on the album to create Re-Machined A Tribute To Deep Purple's Machine Head . There are two wildly differing versions of the album's most famous track Smoke On The Water, one from guitar hero Carlos Santana with vocals by Jacoby Shaddix (Papa Roach) and one from alternative rockers The Flaming Lips, and Metallica have contributed their own special take on When A Blind Man Cries, a track recorded at the Machine Head sessions but originally released by Deep Purple as the B-side to Never Before. This is a truly unique release that will appeal to rock fans everywhere. Also featured is a bonus track of Highway Star, featuring Glenn Hughes, Steve Vai and Chad Smith

Customer Reviews

I would have given it 5 stars,except for two cuts.
Phil Perrin
Most "tributes" to bands are just average, however in this case this is the best tribute CD I think I have ever heard.
Renee Mahlman
I like both the Chickenfoot and Glenn Hughes/Steve Vai versions of Highway Star and I really can't decide which one is better.

The problem with covers is that the bands covering it need to be better than the original or inject something original. The Rush tributes like 'Working Man' are the worst examples of how this goes wrong - the musicians are totally competent, but the covers are soulless (perhaps because they're not used to working with each other) and certainly no better than the original, so why bother?

That said, on this tribute album most of the artists are extremely talented, mesh well, and are obviously having fun. In general I just have a blast listening to this even though I've endlessly listened to a huge quantity of the live CDs and bootlegs. This is my favorite studio Purple album, and both 'Lazy' and 'Maybe I'm a Leo' are in contention for my favorite songs of all time, so I think I've got some fairly high standards here.

Standouts for me are Sanata doing 'Smoke on the Water', Chickenfoot and Steve Vai on 'Highway Star', Hughes on 'Maybe I'm a Leo', and especially Joe Bonmassa on 'Lazy'. I'd never heard of this guy before, but I can feel the passion on 'Lazy', which is perhaps my favorite Purple song on my favorite album, so I'm definitely going to give his other stuff a listen.

Slightly disappointing are Iron Maiden on 'Highway Star' (I like them in general, but it really feels like they're phoning it in) and Flaming Lips on 'Smoke on the Water'. I like the Flaming Lips, especially 'Yoshimi' in Quadraphonic, and I technically I can appreciate this cover, but this is a fun high energy CD and then this song just completely kills the momentum halfway through. Everyone's having a blast doing their favorite Machine Head tracks, and this just clinically dissects their most popular song. It's completely out of place. If anything, it should be a bonus track at the end.

***This review is intended for the Classic Rock Fan Pack magazine / cd released in UK 08/31/2012, this review will also appear on the stand alone CD release of 09/25/2012***

I usually splurge on all the Classic Rock Magazine fan pack releases, and this one is once again top of the line. The magazine is filled with new interviews and old interviews from all persons involved with making Machine Head, even the late Jon Lord is interviewed, eerily giving the magazine his last interview before his passing. Also all contributors to the tribute cd released with the magazine talk about how important and influential Machine Head was on them and their career into music. Extended Purple family Glenn Hughes, Steve Vai (his connection to David Coverdale from the Whitesnake Days), and many others get extended interview pages, as well as Metallica and Iron Maiden. As for the CD itself, well it's a mixed bag really. The best songs on the CD are without a doubt with Glenn Hughes on vocals. Himself being a part of Deep Purple from another time, to hear him tackle Maybe I'm a Leo and Highway Star is spine tingling. His vocals are dynamite on these songs, for a man 60 years old can he sing! The Highway Star track with Glenn Hughes also features some outer-worldly guitar sonics from Mr. Steve Vai, very cool all around. Coincidentally, there are 2 versions of Highway Star, and while I just discussed the bonus version included on the Classic Rock version, the other version features Chickenfoot, albeit a live version of the song, but featuring Joe Satriani nonetheless. While not as sonically smoking as the Hughes/Vai studio version, it rocks well.

This year marks the 40th anniversary of the release of this landmark album and in recognition of the influence of the band, and of Machine Head in particular, some of rock music's biggest names have each contributed a version of their favorite track on the album to create Re-Machined - A Tribute To Deep Purple's Machine Head.

Re-Machined features specially recorded tracks from Jimmy Barnes & Joe Bonamassa, Black Label Society, Chickenfoot, former Deep Purple Mk III member Glenn Hughes with Chad Smith of Red Hot Chili Peppers, Iron Maiden, the "supergroup" Kings Of Chaos (featuring Joe Elliott, Steve Stevens, Duff McKagan and Matt Sorum), Metallica, Carlos Santana & Jacoby Shaddix and Steve Vai.

There are two wildly differing versions of the album's most famous track Smoke On The Water, one from guitar hero Carlos Santana with vocals by Jacoby Shaddix and one from alternative rockers Flaming Lips, and Metallica have contributed their own special take on When A Blind Man Cries, a track recorded at the Machine Head sessions but originally released as the B-side to Never Before.

Iron Maiden's Space Truckin' cover was actually recorded back in 2006. Lead singer Bruce Dickinson explains, "Initially we didn't think we'd be able to contribute anything due to our touring commitments. Then we remembered Space Truckin which we'd recorded as a single B-side during our A Matter Of Life And Death album session, but never used. However now, thanks to Kevin Shirley's remixing skills, we're able to include it on Re-Machined".

Initially released as a limited edition Classic Rock "fanpack" on September 3, this is a truly unique release that will appeal to rock fans everywhere.
