Re-Machined A Tribute to Deep Purple
- Various Artists
- Release: Out Now
2012 sees the 40th anniversary of the release of Deep Purples landmark album Machine Head. In recognition of Deep Purples influence, and that of the Machine Head album in particular, some of rock musics biggest names have each contributed a version of their favourite track on the album to create Re-Machined A Tribute To Deep Purples Machine Head. There are two wildly differing versions of the albums most famous track Smoke On The Water, one from guitar hero Carlos Santana with vocals by Jacoby Shaddix and one from alternative rockers Flaming Lips, and Metallica have contributed their own special take on When A Blind Man Cries, a track recorded at the Machine Head sessions but originally released by Deep Purple as the B-side to Never Before. This is a truly unique release that will appeal to rock fans everywhere.
