Deep Purple are set to release a “Super Deluxe Edition” of their 1972 album, Machine Head.

Warner Records and Rhino Entertainment will release Machine Head: Super Deluxe Edition on March 29 as a 3-CD/LP/Blu-ray.

Featuring new mixes and previously unreleased live recordings, the comprehensive version is available to pre-order at https://rhino.lnk.to/MachineHeadDeluxe

Highlighting the collection are several different versions of the album, including new stereo and Dolby Atmos mixes by Dweezil Zappa. The 1974 quadraphonic mix and a newly remastered version of the original album are also featured in the “Super Deluxe Edition.”

Zappa’s newly remixed stereo version of “Smoke On The Water,” a song dubbed the Beethoven‘s 5th of hard rock, is available to listen at https://rhino.lnk.to/SmokeOnWaterStr.

The “Super Deluxe Edition” also contains two captivating live performances. The first, recorded on March 9, 1972, at the Paris Theatre in London, captures the group’s unrivaled stage presence during the Machine Head Tour. The second, previously unreleased, was recorded in April 1971 at the Montreux Casino in Switzerland.

The new Dolby Atmos and 2024 mixes were made by Zappa using the original tapes. In the liner notes, Zappa says, “It’s one of those records where I think, ‘How did they come up with this?’ It’s got classical influences in the guitar and the keyboard, but then it’s got the blues and there’s little bits of funkiness.”

“And you have this singer who has the most killer voice. All these things come together in a way where it doesn’t sound like commercial music, yet people got really excited about it. It’s a fascinating recipe,” he adds.
