Made in Japan Still Rocks,
This review is from: Made In Japan (Audio CD)
I have a much played vinyl version from 1973 and recently bought the CD Re-release to play in the car.
I have now converted my 11 year old daughter to the album as now she insists on me playing Smoke on the Water at high volume as i take her to school. I think i should have bought this CD years ago.
This Album is Deep Purple and Heavy Rock at its best. Smoke on the Water is classic purple but Strange Kind of Woman is the neglected classic track on the Album.
Add to it Highway Star and Child in Time and you have probably a collection of 4 live tracks that have still to be bettered by any rock band that has followed.
Adding a bonus CD with Black Night and Speed King just adds to the pleasure.
This is the classic Purple line up firing on all cylinders.
If you can only take one heavy rock album to the Desert Island with you this is the one.
