180g Audiophile Vinyl Mastered by Friday Music's Joe Reagoso From Original Warner Bros. Tapes!

The mid-seventies were truly a successful era for hard rock legends Deep Purple. The Mark IV version of this arena filling superstar act now featured the much revered Come Taste The Band line-up of the original co-founders keyboard great Jon Lord and power drummer Ian Paice, plus the superlative Glenn Hughes on bass and superstar vocalist David Coverdale, with the recent addition of guitar legend Tommy Bolin. In support of their then huge current albums Burn, Stormbringer and Come Taste The Band, Deep Purple took to the road for many sell out shows of the Far East throughout 1976 and recorded what would become the final international album of their long platinum plus run with Warner Bros. Records, Last Concert In Japan. Filled with blazing guitar licks from the late great Tommy Bolin, searing vocals from David Coverdale and an arena powered rhythm section courtesy of Deep Purple, the band opens the LP with the hugely popular Burn. The fire continues to excel with their legendary Come Taste The Band rocker Love Child and the classic You Keep On Moving.

Never fear more hard rock is here as side two blows your speakers apart with the crowd pleaser Lady Luck from Stormbringer as well as the classic David Coverdale vocal ballad Soldier Of Fortune. A pair of smashes from Machine Head drive the album home with brilliant Mark IV versions of Smoke On The Water and the extended power rocker Highway Star from the 1972 classic LP. Jon Lord gets a special showcase as well with his Woman From Tokyo jam, as the band jumps in on the familiar chord progression, making this another highlight listen of this rare live album. A lot of North American record buyers never got a chance to hear the original version of this final recording from Deep Purple’s Warner Bros. catalog, as the super rare album was only available for a very short time in Japan and overseas. That is until now...

Friday Music is once again very honored to offer another fine Deep Purple classic recording with the exclusive 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl first time release of Last Concert In Japan.

Impeccably mastered by Deep Purple connoisseur Joe Reagoso from the original Warner Bros. tapes at Capitol Records in Hollywood, this amazing limited edition live document shows the legendary Deep Purple playing their most notable tunes from their much acclaimed catalog of hit singles and albums.
