Description by OLDIES.com:

Deep Purple in 1972 were reaching the height of their success, with hit singles and albums worldwide. Into this heady atmosphere they delivered one of the most famous rock albums of all time, Machine Head.

1972 saw them premier the new album at concerts in Europe, Japan and America (with no fewer than six tours there that year), delivering the powerful new Machine Head set. It was at a concert in the Danish capital of Copenhagen that the first (and only) full film of the famous Mk 2 line-up presented here was made (on DVD for the first time).

The tour continued through to 1973 when Deep Purple returned to America, selling out more shows and shifting more albums than they had ever done. A camera crew turned up to film the group in New York in May for the "In Concert" show, and this is also released here for the first time (on any format), including the only performance of the line-up doing "Smoke On The Water."

Product Description:

In 1972, British hard-rock band Deep Purple launched a massive world tour in support of their landmark proto-metal album MACHINE HEAD. This concert film captures two stops on the MACHINE HEAD tour, both featuring the classic lineup of guitarist Ritchie Blackmore, singer Ian Gillian, keyboardist Jon Lord, bassist Roger Glover, and drummer Ian Paice. Filmed in black and white on March 1, 1972, in Copenhagen, Denmark, by Danish national radio and television, the first performance boasts the only time this lineup was ever captured on film for a full-length concert. It has never before been screened in its entirety. The second performance, filmed in color in May 1973 in New York City for the IN CONCERT television series, marks the only recorded footage of that same lineup performing their classic "Smoke on the Water." Together, the two concerts make for a historic document of one of the most important bands in the hard-rock canon.
