Tune in for the WPDH Album of the Week this Sunday at 11PM. We’ll be bringing you Deep Purple 'Machine Head', in its entirety, start to finish.

Deep Purple’s 6th studio album, Machine Head was released in March of 1972 on Warner Bros. Records. The album has been considered a major influence on the early development of heavy metal music and it was Deep Purple’s most commercially successful album. It was No. 1 in the UK for 20 weeks and top 10 in the U.S. for 118 weeks. Classic songs on Machine Head include “Smoke on the Water”, “Highway Star”, and “Space Truckin”. AllMusic critic Eduardo Rivadavia called Machine Head “one of the essential hard rock albums of all time.”
