45 years ago today, Deep Purple made history with their 5th studio album, Fireball. This was the second album by the band to feature the famous Mk II lineup of Ritchie Blackmore, Ian Paice, John Lord, Ian Gillian, and Roger Glover. The album reached #1 on the UK charts and #32 in the US. My favorite track from the record is “Fireball.”
