“ 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.
