"One of Deep Purple's four indispensable albums - a hard rock masterpiece."

Released in 1971, Fireball was Deep Purple's fifth studio album and the second
with the Mk II lineup. It would become the first of the band's three UK #1 albums and
also certified Gold in the US. The album came betweeen 1970's In Rock and 1972's
Machine Head, a period considered by many to be Mark II's golden hour.  They added
a lot more progressive rock to their heavy metal drive and the result is brilliant.

Metal machine noises introduce the title track that reached #15 on the UK Singles Chart.
This original US version includes the Top 10 UK hit, "Strange Kind of Woman."
 
Fireball is flawless, every thing works, from the organ melodies of Jon Lord, to the guitar
acrobatics of Ritchie Blackmore, the musicianship on this album is exceptional;  the charismatic
Ian Gillan's incredibly expressive singing, Ian Paice's powerful and gutsy work on the drums
and Roger Glover again lays down some heavy bass lines. 

 

"...one of Britain's foremost bands create one of the great hard rock albums of the seventies - this one is essential."
