Together with Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath, Deep Purple has been referred to as the “unholy trinity of British hard rock and heavy metal” in the early to mid-Seventies. One of the most influential and important guitar bands in history, they have sold over 100 million albums worldwide. Made In Japan was recorded live over three nights during August 15–17, 1972 at Festival Hall, Osaka and Budokan, Tokyo. Four of the tracks come from the band’s 1972 Machine Head album. It featured what many consider the classic Deep Purple lineup — Ian Gillan, Ritchie Blackmore, Roger Glover, Jon Lord and Ian Paice. Originally recorded only for the Japanese market, the album has since become seen as one of Deep Purple’s seminal albums, and one of the greatest live albums of all time (A Rolling Stone magazine readers poll in 2012 voted Made In Japan as the sixth greatest live album of all time).
Recorded live August 15-17, 1972 at Festival Hall and Budokan in Osaka and Tokyo, Japan.
