Deep Purple's Absolute Best!,
This review is from: Machine Head (Audio CD)
Deep Purple were always one of my favorite bands from their early days when I first heard "Hush" on the radio. "Machine Head", their third l.p. with Ian Gillian, Ritchie Blackmore, Roger Glover, Ian Paice and Jon Lord is their best effort to date. There isn't a bad song on this album - period. This is the quintenssial rock album! Blackmore's guitar riffs are awesome as are Jon Lord's keyboard playing. Ian Gillian has got to be one of rock's best vocalist along with Zeppelin's Robert Plant. This band had such talent, it's unfortunate that this lineup didn't record more in the 70's. Eventually Gillian, Glover and Blackmore left the group and replacements were made, but the classic line up in this album will always be what made Deep Purple what they were - one of the world's best (and loudest) rock bands ever. If there's one rock cd you buy from the 70's this should be it.

Where's your review of MADE IN JAPAN? Surely, your name "highway star" has the best version of this song on the live album, or not?
