Rochmon Record Club Listening Party: Deep Purple - “Machine Head”
Made “on the run” while on a grueling tour schedule late in 1971 Deep Purple, out of sheer will, desperation, and inspiration, recorded an album that has influenced generations of Heavy Metal musicians. With songs like “Highway Star”, “Space Truckin’” and the genre defining “Smoke On The Water” “Machine Head” takes no prisoners. If you’ve got a pulse, from the first note you’re head banging and fist pumping. The band’s classic line up of Ian Gillan, Ritchie Blackmore, John Lord, Roger Glover and the mighty drummer, Ian Paice, defies other bands to keep up.
The Listening Party begins at 7:30 pm with a live audio & video presentation by Chuck Vosganian aka “Rochmon”. A Rochmon Record Club Listening Party is meant to inform and deepen our understanding of the history of the individual performers, the songs and the stories that made this iconic album.
The Linda’s kitchen will be open for snacks and drinks. The Rochmon Record Club is presented by Universal Preservation Hall. The Rochmon Record Club is held on the 3rd Tuesday of the month at Caffe’ Lena (caffelena.org) in Saratoga Springs and the last Thursday of the month at The Linda (thelinda.org) in Albany, programming varies by location, please check websites for tickets and show information or go to Rochmon.com for more information.
