I still have the old vinyl LP on my shelf, bought back in the 70's, but haven't played it in many years as I no longer have a record deck. My missus bought me the CD for xmas and she is now probably regretting it, as I've been playing it to death ever since! I'd forgotten just how good it is - every track is a gem! The musicianship, the songs, the production and even the digital remastering is right on the money. 'When A Blind Man Cries' was not on the original album (apparently Ritchie Blackmore didn't want it) but I'm glad it is on this CD release as it is a fantastic song and deserves to be there. Machine Head is a rock classic!
