Made In Japan is one of the best and most famous hard rock live albums that captured mark 2 Deep Purple at their peak, promoting the outstanding Machine Head album.
Purple have gone on to release plenty of live albums, some that date before this 1972 concert and some after but this is the one to hear first.
