This, Deep Purple's first studio album, features :-
Ritchie Blackmore who writes and plays the lead guitar
Rod Evans who writes and sings
Jon Lord who writes, sings and plays the organ
Ian Paice who writes and plays the drums &
Nick Simper who writes, sings and plays the bass guitar.

The album was recorded during a weekend in May 1968 at Pye Studios in London & engineered by Barry Ainsworth.

This Japanese issue is by far the rarest edition, released in April 1969 in very small quantities.

Subsequent pressings reverted to the fairly familiar US cover design. This Nippon Grammophon pressing was the only issue to have this superb & unique gatefold sleeve with full Japanese biography & lyrics printed inside the gatefold.

A true centrepiece item for any serious Deep Purple collection!
