Universal Announce Deep Purple 'Made In Japan' Live Album In Multiple Formats Out 19th May 2014

Together with Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath, Deep Purple have been referred to as the "unholy trinity of British hard rock and heavy metal" in the early to mid-Seventies. One of the most influential and important guitar bands in history, they have sold over 100 million albums worldwide.

"Made In Japan" was recorded live over three nights during 15-17 August 1972 at Festival Hall, Osaka and Budokan, Tokyo. Four of the tracks come from the band's 1972 "Machine Head" album. It featured what many consider the classic Deep Purple lineup - Ian Gillan (Vocals), Richie Blackmore (Guitars), Roger Glover (Bass), Jon Lord (Organ) and Ian Paice (Drums). Originally recorded only for the Japanese market, the album has since become seen as one of Deep Purple's seminal albums, and one of the greatest live albums of all time (A Rolling Stone magazine readers poll in 2012 voted "Made In Japan" as the sixth greatest live album of all time).

May 19th 2014 will see the album newly remastered and released in a number of special formats. The format options include previously unseen footage on DVD, bonus material and mixes, memorabilia and a hardback book. The "Made In Japan" formats are below

Limited Edition Super Deluxe 4 CD+DVD+7" Boxed Set and Limited Edition Super Deluxe 9LP Boxed Set, Deluxe Edition 2CD, 180g 2LP, Blu-Ray Pure Audio, HD Download, MFiT and standard Digital formats.

A feast of delights for any Purple fan.
