Deep Purple in 1972 were reaching the height of their success, with hit singles and albums worldwide. Into this heady atmosphere they delivered one of the most famous rock albums of all time, "Machine Head". 1972 saw them premier the new album at concerts in Europe, Japan, and America (with no fewer than six tours there that year), delivering the powerful new "Machine Head" set. It was at a concert in the Danish capital of Copenhagen that the first (and only) full film of the famous Mk 2 line-up presented here was made (on video for the first time). The tour continued through to 1973 when Deep Purple returned to America, selling out more shows and shifting more albums than they had ever done. A camera crew turned up to film the group in New York in May for the "In Concert" show, and this is also released here for the first time (on any format), including the only performance of the line-up doing "Smoke On The Water".
