Thanks in part to their single, "Woman From Tokyo" Deep Purple was the best selling artist in the U.S. in 1973.

Deep Purple was an extroardinary band to witness in concert, great stage presence and lots of energy.

The album charted fairly well in the U.S., yet charted somewhat better in the U.K. at #4.
