    Anyone else a fan of this band's brand of in-your-face, 'Speed King' style rock?

    Provocative question: did they ever top their first album?
    Deep Purple was one of my favorite bands, but I don't recall them doing Lucille. My favorite album was Machine Head.

    Here is a nice cover of Highway Star.

    Side one

    1. Woman from Tokyo from Who Do We Think We Are 5:49
    2. Fireball from Fireball 3:26
    3. Strange Kind of Woman (live) from Made in Japan 9:14
    4. Never Before from Machine Head 4:02
    5. Black Night (live) b-side of Woman From Tokyo single 4:59


    Side two

    1. Speed King from Deep Purple in Rock 5:52.
    2. Smoke on the Water (live) from Made in Japan 7:29
    3. Child in Time (live) from Made in Japan 12:19
    Lol! I remember that LP!

    I already had 'Made In Japan' in 1973 and I bought that album in 1975 to get 'Black Night' live that wasn't on MIJ and Woman from Tokyo.

    Lucille, Black Night and Speed King were the encores from their 1972 Japan gigs that the double live album was drawn from. Later CD releases of MIJ had the encores.

    BTW, Made In Japan is the best live rock album ever - straight from the mixing desk and no overdubs etc

    On the original vinyl Made In Japan released in 1972 Gillan says at the end of Highway Star "That's a song about Fat Larry and his car" - priceless! Sadly, that and a lot of Gillan's raconteuring didn't make it to the CD releases ........

    Hmmm, pretty sure I had Made in Japan, was a gold colored double album. Maybe I don't remember Lucille because I was more into the Motor City Rockets Lucille, and I saw them twice live, but never saw Deep Purple live. Or maybe I didn't remember Lucille by Deep Purple because it was a more traditional rock song and Deep Purple had their own style so it would not have been one I went for with Deep Purple.

    It's not on the vinyl double album - only on later CD releases, and not all CD releases.

    I'm not a huge Purple fan but that album is one of the first of a handful of hard rock albums I bought at age 14. I bought the CD a couple decades later.

    Was never a fan.....plenty of mates were ( and still are) but recently ended up listening to Made in Japan and Machine Head after years had passed.......impressive and enjoyable!

    The only Lucille songs I know are the Theme from the I Love Lucy show, and the Frank Zappa song Lucille Has Messed My Mind Up.

    My mates were all 'Purpleheads' (my name for them - they also loved Whitesnake, Gillan and Rainbow). I was the lone Sabbath nut (Ozzy only) and then UFO and Wishbone Ash were early faves. I introduced all my mates to AC/DC too. As far as Made in Japan being the greatest live album ever, I can't ever get past UFO's Strangers in the Night, Henry.

    I was a big UFO fan and I saw them 4 times back in the day and also about 7 years ago (they were still brilliant). I still listen to them to this day. And as a matter of fact I spun 'Studio Overdubs In The Night' quite a few times last month. Black Sabbath are responsible for some of my latter-day hearing loss. One of the loudest bands I ever witnessed.
