DEEP PURPLE: 41 Years Later


Forty-one years after its release, Deep Purple has finally put together an official video for "Smoke on the Water," which is now up on their official YouTube channel.

Recorded in December 1971, the song became a hit due to the live version from Made In Japan, which came out in April of 1973, and, for a significant period, both versions were in the Top 10. The video was put together in conjunction with next week's release of the deluxe version of Made in Japan.
