Re-Machined A Tribute to Deep Purple
Catalogue No: EAGCD492
| Release: 24/09/2012
2012 sees the 40th anniversary of the release of Deep Purple’s landmark album “Machine Head”. In recognition of Deep Purple’s influence, and that of the “Machine Head” album in particular, some of rock music’s biggest names have each contributed a version of their favourite track on the album to create “Re-Machined – A Tribute To Deep Purple’s Machine Head”. There are two wildly differing versions of the album’s 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.
