Now after running everywhere, time to nap (again) 🐻😴 Kitamura Makura began in 1923, as a cotton sheet wholesaler and has shifted it's focus from bed sheets to pillows. Now they have created high quality pillows that are portable, soft, machine washable and flexible for your head and neck. With four years of craftsmanship, their mission is to deliver a high quality good night sleep. 🌛
Deep Purple didn’t release their classic double live album Made In Japan today (that was Dec 1972). But the songs on the album was recorded over three nights in Japan August 15, 16 & 17. I fell in love with the band when I was 10-11 years old and for a very very long time they were part of my daily life. Yes I am a geek. Or was🤔 Not sure😂 They opened up a whole new world to the young me and I knew that rock would be a big part of my life. I don’t listen to Purple much these days but when I do it is mostly old live shows I give a spin. Simply the best liveband from this era. -
Made In Japan with it’s glorious gold coloured cover is by many regarded as the best live album ever recorded and in my opinion that’s exactly what it is. The level of musicianship is unbelievable and the band was at their peak here. The classic MkII lineup was touring the album Machine Head and the versions on the livealbum is by far superior to the studio versions. There is no studio overdubs on the album, what they played is what we hear. Amazing really. As I mentioned the songs on the album was taken from three nights and luckily for us they released all three nights in a boxset a few years ago. I got the 9 LP box and it sounds fantastic. They played exactly the same 7 songs every night (only the encores differs) but they way they play, jam, improvise.. no version sounds the same. Brilliant!
Oh, just have to mention that my old original sounds even better after Roger Glover signed it for me 👍 Don’t know why though.. 😉😁
So tonight I’m playing the first show from Osaka August 15. (Purple cover) Good show but only one song made it to the album. Smoke On The Water. Sorry if I’m rambling..
Thoughts about MIJ or the first night? #deeppurple#madeinjapan#livealbum#ritchieblackmore#iangillan#rogerglover#jonlord#ianpaice
