World Premiere of All-Star Deep Purple Tribute Album Airs Today

The all-star Re-Machined A Tribute To Deep Purple's Machine Head album is set to hit stores on September 25 but you can hear some of the tracks today.

Eddie Trunk will premiere several songs from Re-Machined on his syndicated radio show on Q104 FM (New York) today, August 17. He posted some details here.

Meanwhile, Eagle Rock sent out some new details about the album including an interesting back story to Iron Maiden's cover of "Space Truckin," which was actually recorded back in 2006. Lead singer Bruce Dickinson explains, "Initially we didn't think we'd be able to contribute anything due to our touring commitments. Then we remembered 'Space Truckin' which we'd recorded as a single B-side during our A Matter Of Life And Death album session, but never used. However now, thanks to Kevin Shirley's remixing skills, we're able to include it on Re-Machined"

This year marks the 40th anniversary of Machine Head and the Re-Machined tribute album features specially recorded tracks from Jimmy Barnes & Joe Bonamassa, Black Label Society, Chickenfoot, former Deep Purple Mk III member Glenn Hughes with Chad Smith of Red Hot Chili Peppers, Iron Maiden, the "supergroup" Kings Of Chaos (featuring Joe Elliott, Steve Stevens, Duff McKagan and Matt Sorum), Metallica, Carlos Santana & Jacoby Shaddix and Steve Vai.

There are two wildly differing versions of the album's most famous track "Smoke On The Water", one from guitar hero Carlos Santana with vocals by Jacoby Shaddix and one from alternative rockers Flaming Lips, and Metallica have contributed their own special take on "When A Blind Man Cries", a track recorded at the "Machine Head" sessions but originally released as the B-side to "Never Before".
