The original management company Deep Purple (Overseas) has posted a teaser for the Made in Japan documentary that is being prepared for release some time early next year:
The documentary component highlights the Mark 2 period of the band with a focus on the recording of ‘Machine Head’, the friction that developed within the band, the recording of the famous Japanese 1972 concerts, and for the first time we will see the complete 1972 film recording.
The documentary will cover the period in band’s history starting from recording of Machine Head to Mark 2 implosion in June 1973. Most of the 26 minutes of live footage from Tokyo August 1972 is used, with both historical and new interviews overlaid in places of the show that were not filmed.
The documentary will be released in conjunction with the remix of the three Japanese shows.
Thanks to DP(o) for the info.
