Various Artists - Re-Machined: A Tribute To Deep Purple's 'Machine Head'

2012 sees the 40th anniversary of the release of Deep Purple's landmark album Machine Head. In recognition of Deep Purple's influence, and that of Machine Head in particular, some of rock's biggest names have each contributed a version of their favorite track on the album to create Re-Machined - A Tribute To Deep Purple's Machine Head.

There are two wildly differing versions of the album's most famous track 'Smoke On The Water,' one from guitar hero Carlos Santana, and one from the Flaming Lips, and Metallica have contributed their own special take on 'When A Blind Man Cries,' a track originally released as the B-side to 'Never Before.' This is a truly unique release that will appeal to rock fans everywhere.
