Offered for sale is a 1974 Japanese pressing of Who Do We Think We Are by Deep Purple, complete with original obi.
About this copy: This pressing of Who Do We Think We Are is a 1974 Japanese pressing on the Warner Brothers label.
This issue has the same catalog number as the original 1973 issue, but has the “Burbank” label rather than the all-green label used on the 1973 release. The price on the obi and cover is ¥2300.
The LP also includes the original obi and lyric insert.
The cover is VG++, with faint wear at the corners and edges. The obi is M- and the “hojyuhyo,” or re-order tag, is still attached.
The disc is M- and appears to have had very little play.
A nice copy of a terrific LP.
Background: Who Do We Think We Are, issued in 1973, was the seventh studio album by Deep Purple. The album reached #4 in the UK and #15 on the U.S. album charts.
Except for opener “Woman From Tokyo,” which hinted at glories past with its signature Ritchie Blackmore riff, the album’s remaining cuts are wildly inconsistent and find the band simply going through the motions. In fact, many of these don’t so much resemble songs as loose jam sessions quickly thrown together in the studio with varying degrees of enthusiasm. “Mary Long” and “Super Trouper” are prime examples, featuring generic solos from Blackmore and organist Jon Lord, and uncharacteristically inane lyrics from soon-to-be former singer Ian Gillan.
