Deep Purple – Machine Head (1972) LP

machine head

Just listening to this album will make you want to go out and buy a Marshal Amplifier and Fender Stratocaster in the hope that you can rock like Ritchie Blackmore!!!

Another indispensable LP from the last forty years, “Machine Head” introduced several must learn riffs for young guitarists to start their education with and so much more. There isn’t a weak track out of the seven on the disc and “When A Blind Man Cries”, which was left off the album, gets some prominent attention here. My only complaint is not having a chapter for the ferocious “Lazy”, which lets Jon Lord’s Hammond organ get very beastly indeed (plugged into a Marshall stack), as he goes from the playful to the terrifying in this intense workout of a song.
