22 April 2019

Legendary hard rockers DEEP PURPLE reached the top spot of the UK albums
chart – for the second time – on 22 April 1972, 47 years ago, with their sixth LP
MACHINE HEAD. The album was also a bestseller all over Europe and peaked
at #7 in the USA. The success of its lead single SMOKE ON THE WATER issued
in December of the previous year was a big factor for the longplayer’s triumph.

Oh yeah, whether you were/are a hard rock fan or not you just can’t ignore the
booming power of this timeless, head-banging riff. Press the button here…
