About this album

Deep Purple in Rock (also known as In Rock) is an album by English rock band Deep Purple, released in June 1970. It was their fourth studio album, and the first with the classic Mk II lineup. Deep Purple in Rock was their breakthrough album in Europe and would peak at #4 in the UK, remaining in the charts for months. Album was supported by the hugely successful In Rock World Tour which lasted 15 months.

Although this was the first studio album to feature the MK II lineup of the band, it was this lineup that had earlier recorded the Concerto for Group and Orchestra.

Deep Purple’s earlier work ranged from psychedelic hard rock to orchestra-driven tracks and covers that ranged from The Beatles to Neil Diamond, among others, but on this record all tracks are credited to the five members of the band. “Speed King” and “Flight of the Rat” are hard rock songs, and the 10-minute epic “Child in Time”, perhaps the most famous song from this record, would be a concert staple for years to come.

Although “Into the Fire” and “Speed King” were featured on the set lists at the time, “Child in Time” was the only song from this album that was included on Made in Japan two years later (although “Speed King” was the usual encore and is featured on the expanded CD re-issue, as is “Black Night” which was included in the Deep Purple in Rock re-issue).
