“Re-Machined – A Tribute To Deep Purple’s Machine Head”

Eagle Records are delighted to announce the release of the “Re-Machined – A Tribute To Deep Purple’s Machine Head” album [Cat No. EAGCD492] on October 1st, 2012. 2012 sees the 40th anniversary of the release of this landmark album and in recognition of the influence of the band, and that of “Machine Head” in particular, some of rock music’s biggest names have each contributed a version of their favourite track on the album to create “Re-Machined – A Tribute To Deep Purple’s Machine Head”.

Re-Machined” features specially recorded tracks from former Deep Purple Mk III member Glenn Hughes with Chad Smith of Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Iron Maiden, Metallica, Chickenfoot, Black Label Society, Carlos Santana & Jacoby Shaddix, Jimmy Barnes & Joe Bonamassa and the “supergroup” Kings Of Chaos featuring Joe Elliott, Steve Stevens, Duff McKagan and Matt Sorum.

There are two wildly differing versions of the album’s most famous track “Smoke On The Water”, one from guitar hero Carlos Santana with vocals by Jacoby Shaddix and one from alternative rockers Flaming Lips, and Metallica have contributed their own special take on “When A Blind Man Cries”, a track recorded at the “Machine Head” sessions but originally released as the B-side to “Never Before”.
