Top 100 Music Reviewer

Well for those of you out there who are into rock music but have yet to discover Deep Purple, this really ought to be your first port of call, quite simply one of the most insanely intense and breathtaking musical achievements ever recorded, this album showcases all of the combined talents of the most famous and sucessful version of what is essentially one of the most important and hugely influential rock bands ever during a set of three japanese gigs that they played back in 1972 and this album which was only originally intended to be a japan only release was quickly released over here in the uk to try and beat the bootleggers out there at their own game and in the process quickly became one of the most popular live albums of all time, but then after just one listen it should become rather apparent to you why that is, in this day and age it is genuinely accepted as rather normal for a rock band to release a live album but at the time when this was made back in 1972 very few acts had released a live album so this was a major gamble, so if you think about it for an album that came out about 35 years ago to still be regarded as an all time great should give you some idea as to how good an album this is and always was.
This is an album that hits you right from the start and continues to pummel your senses right til the end but with the inclusion of the three original encores that were not present on the original album you get an even better show for your money, though on the version I have the extra songs used for encores are on another disc and for some reason do not really seem particularly necessary to make this album better, in fact if i'm honest the original album on the first disc is so good that I rarely listen to the encores

As for the album itself it mostly consists of material from the truly brilliant machine head album, in fact 4 of the 7 tracks on the original version of made in japan were from this monster of an album which had just been released, but going back to the material on this album itself it consists mostly of what are considered purple classics, the opening number highway star is one of those instantly recognizable driving anthems that features heavily on rock radio stations and rock compilations, the next song child in time is a completely jaw dropping excersise in excess, ritchie blackmore plays what can only be described as a phenomenal guitar workout and ian gillan manages to scream his way through that song in a way that most rock singers would happily exchange their larynxes for, the next song smoke on the water is without doubt the most recognized guitar riff of them all and the song isn't bad either with a suitably decent solo as well, the next song the mule is a showcase for the drummer ian paice and shows how good a drummer he could be, the next song strange kind of woman is another regular radio played song and goes some way to showing how well gillan and blackmore could work together, the next song lazy is my personal favourite on the album and goes to show how well the band could jam together featuring some of the best individual performances of all and the last song space truckin is like one long 20 minute jam.
A special mention should go to jon lord and roger glover because they both play extremely brilliantly here as well, jon lord is one of the best keyboardists in the world and glover proves that he is a solid dependable bass player

Overall this is without doubt one of the all-time greatest live albums where musicianship is second to none and though not everyone likes live albums I think they would be fools to miss this one because it is still one of the albums most likely to change their minds

Right you are "supershaggy": if you are looking for the best rock live albums ever made, why not start at the top with "Made In Japan"?
Great Live albums are hard to find. You could wind up listening to Thin Lizzy's heavily overdubbed Live and Dangerous, or even to Zeppelin's useless Song Remains the Same Soundtrack which doesn't even come close to what a live album should be able to deliver...
"Made In Japan" is one for the ages. The live versions of Deep Purple's classics on this CD obliterate their studio counterparts on every level imaginable. Whenever radio stations feature some major Purple classics, they inevitably use the ones delivered on "Made In Japan".
Make no mistake, 36 years on these performances culled from concerts in Osaka and Tokyo still rule the live album roost together with Dylan's 1966 concert in England and The Who's Live At Leeds.

 The Best Live album EVER!

Deep Purple at the hight of their powers playing with that competitive edge that made their early 70's shows so special. The MK 2 Line up was just the best there was. Lord and Blackmore dueling the solos and setting new standards for musicianship. Gillan on form using his full vocal range to great effect. Ian Paice is and was just the best drummer in Rock and Roger Glover a bass player with the skill of a lead guitarist. This album has it all. The greatest guitar solo ever laid down by Blackmore on Child In Time. Lazy featuring Jon Lords amazing Intro, Paice playing the only drum solo worth listening to on an album. Ian Gillan and Ritchie sparing Voice v Guitar on Strange Kind of Woman and Deep Purple improvising for ever on Space Trucking, this is what made this band so different to their contemporaries this ability to improvise without ever losing sight of the song. And then the most famous guitar riff their is Smoke on the Water but get this only introduced as a song form the last album. If you want your Rock hard, heavy, inspirational and musically brilliant and you have heard of Purple and don't know which of the many albums to buy. This is the one. Get this first then In Rock, Machine Head, Fireball and possibly Burn. Deep Purple at their best. If Carlsberg made Live Album this would be the album they would have made.
