Arrow Space Truckin

Deep Purple [Made In Japan] (Remastered Edition)
"Space Truckin'" is a song by British hard rock band Deep Purple.. It is the se7enth and final track on the Machine Head album.. Its lyrics talk of space travel and it showcases the vocal abilities of singer Ian Gillan and powerful drumming of Ian Paice..When it was first performed live, the band appended an instrumental that was originally part of the song "Mandrake Root" on their first album but gradually evolved into a showcase for Jon Lord's Hammond organ and Ritchie Blackmore's guitar solos.. This usually took the length of the overall song to over twenty minutes, and it was always performed as the last number of the main set.. A good example of this arrangement can be found on the Made in Japan album, wherein Blackmore also quotes the "cello" solo of "Fools" off Fireball..Released March 1972...
