Background: Deep Purple in Rock was Deep Purple’s fourth studio album and the first to feature singer Ian Gillan.  The album reached #4 on the UK charts, but only reached #143 in the U.S. gave the album a 4 1/2 star review:

Deep Purple’s soon to be classic Mark II version made its proper debut and established the sonic blueprint that would immortalize this lineup of the band on 1970’s awesome In Rock. The cacophony of sound (spearheaded by Ritchie Blackmore’s blistering guitar solo) introducing opener “Speed King” made it immediately obvious that the band was no longer fooling around…and though closer “Hard Lovin’ Man” finally saw the new-look Deep Purple waffling on a bit too long before descending into feedback, the die was cast for one of heavy metal’s defining albums.
