Deep Purple have announced a “Super Deluxe Edition” of their classic 1972 album Machine Head, featuring new stereo and Dolby Atmos mixes by Dweezil Zappa. In fact, you can hear Zappa’s new mix of the iconic “Smoke on the Water” below.

The box set, which arrives March 29th via Rhino, features a vinyl version of the album with Zappa’s new 2024 remix, in addition to three CDs and a Blu-ray audio disc. The first CD contains the original mix and the Zappa mix. The second one features a concert recorded on March 9, 1972, at the Paris Theatre in London. And the third CD contains a previously unreleased concert recorded in April 1971 at the Montreux Casino in Switzerland.

The Blu-ray audio disc, meanwhile, boasts Zappa’s Dolby Atmos mix, the 1974 US quad mix, and a Dolby 5.1 surround mix of select tracks.

Zappa says of Machine Head in a press release, “It’s one of those records where I think, ‘How did they come up with this?’ It’s got classical influences in the guitar and the keyboard, but then it’s got the blues and there’s little bits of funkiness. And you have this singer who has the most killer voice. All these things come together in a way where it doesn’t sound like commercial music, yet people got really excited about it. It’s a fascinating recipe.”

Of course, “Smoke on the Water” contains one of the most famous rock riffs of all time. The song was written after the Montreux Casino burned down in December 1971. Deep Purple had planned to record Machine Head there, but had to relocate to the nearby Grand Hotel to record the album.

Deep Purple will be touring Europe in June and July. Pick up tickets to their upcoming shows here.
