This album from the Mark II version of Deep Purple is best known for the huge hit “Woman From Tokyo” that starts out the disc. When people talk about the classic Deep Purple albums usually this is not one of them that gets mentioned, but I think it is underrated. The album would prove to be the last for the mark II lineup as tensions were high at the time of its recording. Every song here is good “Mary Long”, “Super Trouper”, “Smooth Dancer”, “Rat Bat Blue”, “Place In Line” and “Our Lady” are all classic purple. The whole band is in fine form instrumentally and Gillan’s voice at its peak. I have had a love hate relationship with many of Deep Purple’s albums over the years, but this one is one of their best in my opinion.
