Deep Purple performing 'Into The Fire' from "In Rock" in Germany 1971. Featuring the classic Mk2 line up of Ian Gillan, Roger Glover, Ian Paice, Jon Lord & Ritchie Blackmore.
Deep Purple in Rock (also known as In Rock) is an album by English rock band Deep Purple, released in June 1970. It was their fourth studio album, and the first with the classic Mk II lineup. Deep Purple in Rock was their breakthrough album in Europe and would peak at #4 in the UK, remaining in the charts for months. (The band's prior MK I albums had been much better received in North America than in their homeland.) The album was supported by the hugely successful In Rock World Tour which lasted 15 months.
Although this was the first studio album to feature the MK II lineup of the band, it was this lineup that had earlier recorded the Concerto for Group and Orchestra.
