A masterpiece that should have been longer like an hour.
In my opinion one of Ian Paice’s finest works on drums. The song written by him and Jon Lord would set the standard in what direction the band would take from this point on. This was DP third album that simply reflected their name, it would also be the last album that Nick Simper and lead singer Rod Evans would be on. But make no mistake the talents of both contributed much to the earlier introduction of this band.
The song that made traffic law enforcement across the globe the most money! LMAO
The tickets flew as those who were jamming on the accelerator as fast as the song that played blasting out of their car speakers. And I loved it because even my parents couldn’t even out scream Ian Gillian. I wore Made in Japan out along with my ear drums and relished in it.
We do not have Rock-n-Roll singers anymore. We do not have Rock-n-Roll guitarists anymore. We do not have Rock-n-Roll performances anymore. And there will never be concerts like there once was anymore…… unless these same identical artists take the stage again and play them.
Released in 1972 from Machine Head
From the days of ” Hush ” in 1968 a Power House of music has came from this Band.
