Deep Purple Machine Head Live

Machine Head by Deep Purple is an iconic heavy rock album and would be highly regarded even if it didn’t feature that riff from Smoke On The Water.

It has formed the base for the Deep Purple live set ever since it was released in 1972.

I grew up with it as a seven track album but I’m going to focus on it as an eight track because I like When A Blind Man Cries that was added as a bonus – it had been the B side for the single from the album, Never Before.
