Super Hot Stamper

Deep Purple
Machine Head

  (Item #: deeppmachi_1711_2) 

Our Price: $249.99

  • Two killer sides clocking in at Double Plus (A++) - the sound is HUGE, with real energy, presence and WHOMP
  • Amazingly spacious, the result no doubt of it being recorded practically live in the studio
  • Rarely on the site -- excellent copies like this are beyond difficult to come by, even for us!
  • 5 stars: "Machine Head was anything but a one-trick pony, introducing the bona fide classic opener "Highway Star," which epitomized all of Deep Purple's intensity and versatility while featuring perhaps the greatest soloing duel ever between guitarist Ritchie Blackmore and organist Jon Lord."

Deep Purple - Fireball

Reviewed in 2014

  (Item #: deeppfireb_2014) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Rock and Pop Hall of Fame.

This is a Hot Stamper copy of Deep Purple's Fireball that earned A+ or better grades for both sides. We played a big stack of pressings for this shootout and most of them were mediocre or worse. It's nearly impossible to find a copy that isn't dry and thin. This one is no Demo Disc but it's certainly a nice step up from what you're likely to get on a copy from the bins of your local store.

Deep Purple - In Rock

Our Shootout Winner from 2016

  (Item #: deeppinroc_2016) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Rock and Pop Hall of Fame.

The best pressings give you exactly what you want from this brand of straight ahead rock and roll: presence in the vocals; solid, note-like bass; big punchy drums, and the kind of live-in-the-studio energetic, clean and clear sound. (AC/DC is another band with that kind of live studio sound. With big speakers and the power to drive them YOU ARE THERE.)

Deep Purple - Machine Head

Our Shootout Winner from 2013

  (Item #: deeppmachi_2013) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Rock Hall of Fame and another in the long list of recordings that really comes alive when you Turn Up Your Volume.

AMAZING HARD-ROCKIN' SOUND ON BOTH SIDES! We just finished another shootout for this rockin' classic and couldn't find another copy that even came close to this one. The sound is positively HUGE with real energy, presence and WHOMP. That's a BIG deal for this kind of music! This album makes our Top 100 list for one reason: it ROCKS like crazy.

Deep Purple - Machine Head

180g Rhino LP Debunked

  (Item #: deeppmachi_debunk) 



Sonic Grade: F

A Hall of Shame pressing.

I’m guessing that very few people have ever heard this record sound good. The average copy is nothing special, but this one is a boring, lifeless mess so save your money.

Deep Purple - Made in Japan

DCC Debunked

  (Item #: deeppmadei_debunk) 



Sonic Grade: D-

A Hall of Shame pressing and another DCC LP debunked.

Dead as a doornail sound. Disgraceful.

Deep Purple - Made In Japan

Live and Learn

  (Item #: deeppmadei_2006) 



This is a classic case of Live and Learn. What we had to say below about Made in Japan back in 2006 is just plain emabarrassing.

"This is a very nice looking EMI British Import Double LP that plays Mint Minus. This copy sounds tonally correct and pretty lively. The DCC may be better but it’s a LOT MORE MONEY I haven't played that record since it came out years ago so who's to say."

Ouch.

Our Shootout Winner from 2015

  (Item #: deeppmadei_2015)

Machine Head Live? That would not be far off, and the fact they brought MARTIN BIRCH along with them all the way to Japan in order to engineer a live album that was only supposed to sell to the Japanese market (!) could not have been more fortuitous for us audiophiles.

What to Listen For

  (Item #: deeppmadei_wtlf) 



Another in our series of Home Audio Exercises with advice on What to Listen For (WTLF) as you critically evaluate your copy of the album.

We've raved about a number of live albums over the years. Some of the better sounding ones that come readily to mind (in alphabetical order) are Belafonte at Carnegie Hall, David Live, Johnny Cash At San Quentin, Donny Hathaway Live, The Jimi Hendrix Concerts, Performance - Rockin The Fillmore, Live Wire - Blues Power, Waiting For Columbus, Get Your Ya-Ya's Out and Live at Leeds. I would be proud to have any of them in my collection.

Deep Purple - Mark I & II

Reviewed in 2009

  (Item #: deeppmarko_2009) 


This is a Minty looking EMI Import Double LP. It’s a compilation with a single LP dedicated to each era of the bands early history. As with any compilation some tracks sound better than others here but don’t let the German sourced tapes scare you. These sound like really high quality tapes, close to, if not the actual master tapes. The second LP features the most recognizable and probably best lineup (Mark II) the band ever had, with songs such as Black Knight, Speed King, Smoke on the Water and Highway star to name but a few.

Deep Purple - Who Do We Think We Are!

Our Shootout Winner from 2011

  (Item #: deeppwhodo_2011) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Rock Hall of Fame.

This British Import Purple Records pressing has a GREAT side one, and AMAZING A+++ side two, and VERY QUIET VINYL throughout! I don't think you could find a better sounding side two no matter what you did. The sound here is BIG, BOLD and LIVELY with real weight down low and excellent presence. It really JUMPS out of the speakers and fills up the room! Side one is very good as well, with all of the qualities described above. It doesn't fully open up the way side two does, but it still slaughtered most of the copies we played it against.
