    Deep Purple Made In Japan 40th Anniversary Edition Coming March 2014

    Absolutely fantastic news that these three shows will be released in their entirety across 4 cd's.

    Universal Music are prepping a 40th Anniversary reissue of Deep Purple‘s 1972 live tour-de-force Made In Japan.

    Expected at the end of March 2014, this set will feature all three nights (Osaka 15th/16th August and Tokyo 17th August 1972) across three CDs and all the encores collected on a fourth disc (six tracks, including three Black Nights!). A fifth disc comes in the form of a DVD which contains a new documentary and some hi-res content.

    Amazingly, there will also be a nine LP vinyl box with the full track listing from the CDs. All the audio for this reissue has been newly remixed by Martin Pullan.

    More information on this set when we have it.

    Deep Purple to release 40th anniversary documentary

    It’s the fortieth anniversary of Deep Purple’s groundbreaking live album ‘Made in Japan’, and to mark the occasion, operational overseas manager Dr. Drew Thompson is releasing a revealing documentary.

    Dr. Thompson hopes to give some background to the mystery that lies behind the three nights in Osaka and Tokyo during the recording of this live album in 1972.

    Made in Japan has been ranked as the sixth best live album of all time, and this new documentary, to be released in early 2014, is bound to cause waves.

    Dr. Thompson has promised new footage and some historic clips that show how a band that “hated each others’ guts at times” managed to pull through and do the shows.

    The documentary will also uncover the meaning behind the song ‘Smoke on the Water’, known for having one of the most iconic riffs in rock history.

    In an exclusive meeting with Dr. Thompson, he told Scoop Online that he felt this was new territory even though the original was recorded 40 years ago.

    He said: “No one has really done the story on ‘Smoke on the Water’ and I felt like this is something the fans needed to see.”

    Describing the footage as the “holy grail” of live music for their fans, Dr. Thompson explains:

    “It wasn’t easy making this kind of thing. A lot of research and effort has gone into it.”

    He even bought the original clips off a Japanese fan that had recorded the concert in 1972, and has got several famous producers like Kevin Shirley involved.

    “It’s essentially a chronology of what happened. We hope to explore aspects of the band no one has ever spoken about. It’s just an amazing story.”

    I for one can't wait.

    Cheers

    One of my favourite albums, especially when driving any great distance. Thanks for bringing this to my attention!

    Hasn't this expanded set been released before? - without the DVD though.
    The original Black Night release is so live you can hear the sweat dripping off of them, it's great.
    The trouble is with Made In Japan, it makes the original studio versions on Machine Head sound a bit lame in comparison, because I heard MIJ first.
    Good stuff.

    Thanks for the heads-up.

    Hmmm...Made in Japan has been ranked as the sixth best live album of all time. Top 5? Allman's Fillmore? The Who Live at Leeds? Grateful Dead - Live/Dead?

    They have all been released to an extent. However the one release most folks don't have is the version of Black Night which was released on the EMI box set "Look Listen and Read On"

    The remastering on the triple "Live In Japan" was awful as you can hardly hear Glover's Bass guitar. All the songs are across loads of CD's as the original "Made In Japan" has 45 seconds more of in between chatter.

    I can't wait, only to be topped by an official release of an Animals gig.

    Cheers

    Thanks for that. I bought the two disc MIJ with the encores, but didn't get round to getting the three disc set. I'm glad if there's no bass on it. Bass of course, being the instrument of the Gods.
