When this was originally released I was only ten, and when a copy appeared in my house, shortly after I was hooked.
And has it stood the test of time? You bet.
This is the definitive live album. No overdubs, just blistering performances all round. Ian Gillan later complained that his own performance was poor but to these ears this is as good as it gets.
Highway Star is a killer set opener featuring brilliant soloing from both Lord and Blackmore. Child In Time follows on, mesmerising, from the subtle keyboard introduction through Gillan's screams and a frantic Madame Butterfly influenced Blackmore guitar fest, right back full circle to the start. Gillan screams even louder second time around leaving the listener exhausted as the track explodes and dies at the end.
Just when you thought the music couldn't get any more involving up pops, probably, the best version of Smoke On The Water captured on album. The band is so tight everything seems perfect. Into the Mule with a typically superb drum solo from Ian Paice. Listening to the Mule lulls the listener in to a relaxed state before the band hit the stratosphere with superb interplay and sonics. Strange Kinda Woman just bounces along and the interplay between vocal and guitar just make you grin, mainly for the sheer tongue-in-cheek attitude. A few screams from Gillan and onwards we go into Lazy, a stunning piece of R'n'B (the real stuff). Lord kicks off with some organ torturing, a bit of jazz and off with the lick. The band is in full flow by now with superb soloing and tightness unsurpassed. Space Truckin' is the set closer complete with more ethereal soling from Lord and Blackmore, incorporating sections from Fools and Mandrake Root. The encores added to this anniversary remaster don't disappoint either.

"Made in Japan" is one of the best live classic rock albums. This boxed set includes the 3 concerts played on the 1972 Japan tour from which the tracks on "Made in Japan" were selected. The set lists for each concert are very similar so there is a lot of triplication here. "Made in Japan" took the best versions of the songs so this collection is only for hard core fans or sad people like me who want to hear different versions of their favourite songs. I particularly enjoyed hearing Ritchie fluffing the intro to "Smoke on the water" on one of the versions. Was it deliberate? The package comes with a very nice booklet so collectors will not be disappointed.

From the first tension-building fade-in of Highway Star to the stunned seconds of audience silence at the end of Space Truckin', Made in Japan is without a doubt Deep Purple's finest hour. Nothing they recorded before or since, separately or solo, comes close to matching the virtuosity, the effortless musicianship, or the totally infectious atmosphere of this record.

Much of the album's unique magic is due to the technical genius of engineer Martin Birch (who was later responsible for the great but not-quite-so-seminal Iron Maiden's Live After Death). Despite being recorded well over 30 years ago, the clarity and separation on the album is truly astonishing. Many live recordings made today sound dull and muddy in comparison.

The seven epic tracks which make up the core of the album all have their own charm, from the historic crunching riffs of Smoke on the Water to the playfulness of Lazy, though perhaps The Mule is a bit of a throwaway filler. Nevertheless, it serves as a vehicle for a terrific Ian Paice drum solo and breaks up the album nicely.

This has been my favourite album now for over 30 years. I must have listened it hundreds of times, yet still find something fresh on every listen, and the solos still make the hairs stand up on the back of my neck. If you like Deep Purple but don't own this album, then you really haven't discovered the band. If this is only the Deep Purple album you own, beware, as everything else will be a disappointment by comparison. If you don't own a Deep Purple album and don't think you would like them, buy this anyway and you may well change your mind. And finally, if you're an aspiring guitarist in any genre, your education could not possibly be complete until you own a copy of Made in Japan!

I'm not usually a fan of live albums. However, this live album is unlike any other that I own. Usually, on a live recording the sound isn't anywhere as near as full as you would get in the studio and often you get the singer leaving lines out for the crowd to sing (which I find very annoying!). "Made in Japan" sees Deep Purple playing a selection of their best songs with a sound that is fuller and heavier than on their excellent studio recordings. Highlights inlude the opener "Highway Star," "Space Truckin'," "Strange Kind of Woman" and of course "Smoke on the Water" and "Black Knight." In naming highlights, I almost mentioned the whole album which is testament to how good this CD is. Organ and Guitar solos spiral off all over the place and the band are extremely tight. There is really nothing else I can say except this album is really superb!

The best live rock album ever released? If not then it must be very close. I have collected so many versions over the years and currently have remaining the original vinyl, re-mastered CD & vinyl versions and the expanded `Live in Japan' CD set. My treasured possession is the original 2LP vinyl set which is still sounding good after all the years. I was lucky enough to see them perform many of these tracks live in Feb 73 during the last UK tour before the MK2 version broke-up.

This re-mastered edition has three encore tracks included that were not on the original album. (two of which I understand have not been previously released). These three encore tracks clearly add further interest and enjoyment to the album, but their sound quality on both formats is not as good as the seven original tracks.

The original vinyl version has a wider dynamic sound range than the re-mastered vinyl version, which sounds compressed in comparison. The vinyl weight of this re-mastered version is 132g vs 120g of the original. This is one of the few occasions I prefer a re-mastered CD version over the equivalent re-mastered vinyl version (even as a real die hard vinyl freak) as overall it is much better in terms of cost/performance balance. I think the audio quality of this 1998 CD version is slightly better vs the same tracks on the `Live in Japan' CD recordings as it sounds sharper and clearer. If you want this album on vinyl my recommendation is to seek out a good quality second-hand original 1972 copy with the attractive gold coloured cover.

What makes Made in Japan still sound so good 37years after release? Well you had a very special band at their peak with five brilliant musicians capturing a live improvised energy that could not be heard to the same intensity on studio albums.
