Deep Purple Last Concert In Japan 180g LP
180g Audiophile Vinyl Mastered by Friday
Music's Joe Reagoso From Original Warner Bros. Tapes!
The mid-seventies were truly a successful era for hard rock legends Deep Purple.
The Mark IV version of this arena filling superstar act now featured the much
revered Come Taste The Band line-up of the original co-founders keyboard great
Jon Lord and power drummer Ian Paice, plus the superlative Glenn Hughes on bass
and superstar vocalist David Coverdale, with the recent addition of guitar
legend Tommy Bolin. In support of their then huge current albums Burn,
Stormbringer and Come Taste The Band, Deep Purple took to the road for many sell
out shows of the Far East throughout 1976 and recorded what would become the
final international album of their long platinum plus run with Warner Bros.
Records, Last Concert In Japan. Filled with blazing guitar licks from the late
great Tommy Bolin, searing vocals from David Coverdale and an arena powered
rhythm section courtesy of Deep Purple, the band opens the LP with the hugely
popular Burn. The fire continues to excel with their legendary Come Taste The
Band rocker Love Child and the classic You Keep On Moving.
Never fear more hard rock is here as side two blows your speakers apart with the
crowd pleaser Lady Luck from Stormbringer as well as the classic David Coverdale
vocal ballad Soldier Of Fortune. A pair of smashes from Machine Head drive the
album home with brilliant Mark IV versions of Smoke On The Water and the
extended power rocker Highway Star from the 1972 classic LP. Jon Lord gets a
special showcase as well with his Woman From Tokyo jam, as the band jumps in on
the familiar chord progression, making this another highlight listen of this
rare live album. A lot of North American record buyers never got a chance to
hear the original version of this final recording from Deep Purples Warner
Bros. catalog, as the super rare album was only available for a very short time
in Japan and overseas. That is until now...
Friday Music is once again very honored to offer another fine Deep Purple
