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.

Live albums were not in rerum natura, as they say. DP took their first tour in Japan seriously, and brought the Rolling Stones mobile with them to record it. No stranger to live recordings (or being bootlegged!) the Mk II line-up was taped on all 3 dates at Osaka and Tokyo. The result was a staggering success, and captured the band's stage show at it's electrifying best. Blistering harmony & unison interplay between Blackmore and Lord, a rhythm section containing the world's best rock drummer in Ian Paice and the hugely underrated Roger Glover on bass was capped off by a storming performance of Ian Gillan's silver throated vocal. Having just recorded "Machine Head" the bulk of the set comes from that LP - but "Child in Time" (from In Rock) is an astonishing testament to how good DP were at the time. The best live rock band on the planet, by some considerable margin. I'm sure there will be a few who will argue that Led Zeppelin had that accolade, but some of their live performances were long-winded and unrehearsed. DP's instrumentals were well crafted, and had some huge cues. If you listen to any of their live stuff in any depth you'll see what I mean. The opener, Highway Star, introduces you to the band and is followed by Child in Time. Nuff said. Smoke on the Water is considered to be the band's most memorable riff by the public (check out any music shop on a Saturday afternoon!) and The Mule is a Paice solo spot. Strange kind of Woman is the standout track for me - Blackmore and Gillan (so often at odds with each other)united on stage with the question and answer phrasing and posturing. Lazy is Jon Lord's tour de force.Read more ›

This is not about the music, which is faultless! This review is solely in reference to this newly released vinyl box.
First off...it's actually 7.5 LP's, due to the fact 3 sides are rather uninspiring etched.
Secondly the atrocious Somoke On the Water misprint is unforgivable. Someone either decided, after realizing their mistake; that no-one would be bothered. It's pretty safe to say anyone buying this is not going to be just a casual Purple fan and like me are going to be p##sed off. Especially after laying out the hefty sum required to acquire this in the first place!
The second option is they noticed their mistake and just couldn't care less.
The final option is no-one noticed at all, which says a lot about the quality of the whole pressing....
Incidentally a number of pressings have Osaka misspelt "Oaska" on the labels (but not the one I received)

I also noticed that the "outer box/" states this was made in the Czech Republic, but the individual album covers state "Made in the EU". But these were actually pressed by GZ Media in the Czech Republic as well.

The third thing I discovered was the appalling quality of the vinyl. Full of blemishes, streaks. You've heard the phrase "Virgin Vinyl"? Well that doesn't apply here. This is poor, low quality wax! Considering the main selling angle here is "Audiophile", this is also unforgivable. Not even poly-lined inners.
Quite a few noticeable clicks and other unwanted audible defects, but strangely no actual visible scratches, so beware.
Even the booklet is as dull as dishwater, nothing informative or interesting, one flick through it's bland pages was enough.
I sent it back without hesitation, and will avoid "Back To Black" releases in the future.
