Deep Purple – Machine Head (1972): This is a fantastic English hard rock and heavy metal album recorded in December 1971 in Monteux, Switzerland by Deep Purple. All 7 tracks are great with hard driving (but delightful) music and terrific vocals from Ian Gillan. I enjoyed the entire album, but my favorites were: Highway Star*Smoke On The Water*Space Truckin’*Never Before*Lazy. More Deep Purple might make me feel decades younger! I loved Machine Head on new vinyl today, 6/2/2016. Rating: 97%.
