.Their first studio album of this period, released in mid-1970, was In Rock (a name deliberately chosen to distance the rock album from the concerto[citation needed]) and contained the then-concert staples "Speed King", "Into The Fire" and "Child in Time". The band also issued the UK Top Ten single "Black Night". The interplay between Blackmore's guitar and Lord's distorted organ, coupled with Gillan's howling vocals and the rhythm section of Glover and Paice, now started to take on a unique identity and become instantly recognisable to rock fans throughout Europe[citation needed].^ The Mk 8 lineup of the band features Ian Gillan on vocals, Ian Paic...

^ Lord, Paice, Glover, Gillan, and Morse outshine their peers.

A second album, the more mellow and creatively progressive Fireball (a favourite of Gillan but not of the rest of the band[citation needed]), was issued in the summer of 1971. The title track "Fireball" was released as a single, as was "Strange Kind of Woman" - not from the album but recorded during the same sessions (although it was included on the US version of the album instead of the UK version's song "Demon's Eye".)
.Within weeks of Fireball's release, the band were already performing songs planned for the next album.^ Bolin had been a member of many now-forgotten mid-'60s bands - Denny & The Triumphs, American Standard, and Zephyr, which released three albums from '69-72.

^ The rest is history, as RITCHIE BLACKMORE and the group immortalize the incident in the song, "Smoke on The Water," which would appear on the bands next album.

^ While the opening song may serve as an introduction, this still leaves us with six others (and yes, it is Taliesyn that opens the series of albums with the magic number 'seven' - their next five studio albums in a row will have seven songs each): six songs for five band members?

One song (which later became "Highway Star") was performed at the first gig of the Fireball tour, having been written on the bus to a show in Portsmouth, in answer to a journalist's question: "How do you go about writing songs?" Three months later, in December 1971, the band travelled to Switzerland to record Machine Head. .The album was due to be recorded at a casino in Montreux, using the Rolling Stones Mobile Studio, but a fire during a Frank Zappa and the Mothers of Invention gig burned down the casino.^ However, the day before Purple was due to begin recording, Frank Zappa And The Mothers Of Invention were playing the Casino.

^ On December 3rd, the band is recording in the Montreux Casino in Switzerland when it burns down during a set by Frank Zappa's Mothers of Invention.

^ This is a GREAT album/CD but MAYBE because it's recorded in the Stones mobile sound studio, I just found the sound quility wasn't the best and the volume output was low!My hearing is impaired in BOTH ears, so maybe it's just me!Anyways, still highly recomended!

^ In January, Deep Purple would release the first single from the album, "Knocking At Your Back Door," following it up with the title track, "Perfect Strangers."

^ Perfect Strangers - Mercury 1984 .

Financially, the tour was also a tremendous success. .The UK homecoming proved limited, as they elected to play just a single festival show at Knebworth (with main support from the Scorpions; also on the bill were UFO, Bernie Marsden's Alaska, Mama's Boys, Blackfoot, Mountain and Meat Loaf).^ And when they play, this is just Rock And Roll.

^ None of which got much of a play really, which leaves you to wonder whether it was the wrong record or the wrong sound, or just because they didn't like it, or whatever.

^ Some guitarists sound as if they're just reading off a music sheet as they play but Blackmore often sounds as if he's conjuring something out from his subconcious.

The weather was bad (torrential rain and 6" of mud), but 80,000 fans turned up anyway. The gig was called the "Return Of The Knebworth Fayre".
.The line-up then released The House of Blue Light in 1987, which was followed by a world tour (interrupted after Blackmore broke a finger on stage) and another live album Nobody's Perfect (1988) which was culled from several shows on this tour, but still largely based around the by-now familiar Made in Japan set-list.^ House of Blue Light, the 2007 Preisvergleich > > .

.In 1989, Gillan was fired as his relations with Blackmore had again soured and their musical differences had widened too far.^ However, long-simmering creative differences between Blackmore and Gillan pushed the latter out of the group that same year, with Glover soon exiting as well.

.But tensions between Gillan and Blackmore came to a head yet again during an otherwise stunningly successful European tour.^ Other than that, yet another immaculate record from Gillan, Blackmore & Co.

^ After that successful solo tour of South America, the band would perform in front of hundreds of thousands during a European festival tour in support of such bands as ZZ Top, Little Feat, and Deep Blue Something.

^ Well, maybe it has something to do with that last point there...whatever was happening chemically, the reactions between Gillan and Blackmore were becoming more and more volatile.

Blackmore walked out in November 1993, never to return. .Joe Satriani was drafted in to complete the Japanese dates in December and stayed on for a European Summer tour in 1994. He was asked to join permanently, but his record contract commitments prevented this.^ The band would complete the tour in Japan with guitarist Joe Satriani.

Mark IV lasted only a year and disbanded for what would become eight years after a concert at the Empire, Liverpool, on 15 March 1976.[36]
.While on hiatus, members concentrated on other projects, including Rainbow (Blackmore and Glover), Whitesnake (Coverdale, Lord and Paice), Black Sabbath (Gillan and Hughes, at different times) and Gillan (Gillan).^ The band was also the springboard for several other popular bands including Ritchie Blackmore's Rainbow , David Coverdale's Whitesnake , and Ian Gillan's Gillan , among others.

^ Blackmore storms off in the middle of a tour (again) to resurrect Rainbow  followed by Blackmore Night leaving the rest to draft in Joe Satriani to complete the dates.

^ Joe Lynn Turner used to be Blackmore's partner in Rainbow, and he's not a bad vocalist, but if you remember that Blackmore's most notorious vocal partners over time have been Ian Gillan and Ronnie James Dio, he feels pretty awkward jammed in between the two.

.Turner remained until 1992, when the Mark II line-up came together for the third time.^ Ian Gillan returns and the Mk2 line up is back for the last time.

^ I suppose that pressure caused this album to be a disappointment in the eyes of most, and this ended up being the last output of the classic Mach II line-up.
