Album Description:

DEEP PURPLE IN ROCK (also known as IN ROCK) is an album by English rock band Deep Purple, released in June 1970. It was their fourth studio album, and the first with the classic Mark II lineup. DEEP PURPLE IN ROCK was their breakthrough album in Europe and would peak at #4 in the U.K., remaining in the charts for months. The album was supported by the hugely successful IN ROCK WORLD TOUR which lasted 15 months. Although this was the first studio album to feature the Mark II lineup of the band, it was this lineup that had earlier recorded THE CONCERTO FOR GROUP AND ORCHESTRA.

With IN ROCK, Deep Purple added vocalist Ian Gillan into the line-up, a decision that irrevocably changed their fortunes. IN ROCK is one of the genre's definitive albums, combining hard-edged riffs with virtuoso technique, topped by Gillan's full-throated roar. Few singers could survive the instrumental power beneath him, but this he does with room to spare, reacting to and emphasizing his colleagues' musical prowess. Chock-full of material destined to become Deep Purple anthems, later releases were evaluated against this trail-blazing, heavy rock collection.

Change in direction:

Deep Purple's earlier work ranged from psychedelic hard rock to orchestra-driven tracks and covers that ranged from The Beatles to Neil Diamond, among others, but on this record all tracks are credited to the five members of the band. "Speed King" and "Flight of the Rat" are hard rock songs, and the 10-minute epic "Child in Time", perhaps the most famous song from this record, would be a concert staple for years to come. Although "Into the Fire" and "Speed King" were featured on the set lists at the time, "Child in Time" was the only song from this album that was included on MADE IN JAPAN two years later. The cover depicts the band in a rock sculpture inspired by Mount Rushmore. In 2000 Q magazine placed the album at number 78 in its list of the 100 Greatest British Albums Ever. Jon Lord used both the Leslie speaker, and a Marshall amplifier with his Hammond organ, therefore the organ sound varies a lot throughout the songs. (Example: "Living Wreck" - Leslie speaker, "Hard Lovin' Man" - Marshall amplifier). Ritchie Blackmore used a Gibson guitar on "Child in Time", not his usual Fender Stratocaster. This album is his favorite, along with MACHINE HEAD.
