Recorded over three nights in August 1972, Deep Purple’s Made in Japan was the record that brought the band to headliner status in the U.S. and elsewhere, and it remains a landmark in the history of heavy metal music.
249 Deep Purple – Made in Japan
One response to “249 Deep Purple – Made in Japan”
The lead-in riff on “Smoke on the Water” is NOT a screw-up!!!! I really don’t see why you’d think that, there’s no flubbed notes, there’s no hesitation. When I first heard this as an 11 yr. old in ’73, I thought, “oh cool, they’re making things a little different live than on the studio version”, which is the mark of musicians who want to PLAY with their music while they’re playing. That’s a huge part of what makes live shows essential.
Ok, just had to get that off my chest. Carry on.
