40th Anniversary Edition Remastered re-release of the sixth full-length album by legendary British Hard Rock band.
Deep Purple simply were the finest musicians around in the early 70s. The bands stable line up for this whole period revolves around three of the biggest musicians ever namely: Ian Paice, Jon Lord and Ritchie Blackmore. These guys could simply out play anyone around at the time. Roger Glover, although one of the bands more modest members was a fantastic bassist who has some truly memorable moments on this album, including a bass solo. Ian Gillan is frankly the most fun you’ll ever have with Rock vocals. His range is phenomenal. For many people, it's the first Metal album ever (in terms of performing, sound, and production). For others, it's a simple hybrid attempt of trying to look different. Nonetheless, the influence of this album in the development of Metal music is gigantic!
“Machine Head” gives you everything: catchy songs between powerful tunes. A total machine, able to do whatever you expect from it. It's so Metal and so traditional at the same time. A necessary masterpiece in your collection, no doubt about it!
CD contains bonus track “When A Blind Man Cries”.
