This album was released in 1970 …. heavy sound for the time.
Who would believe an organ could sound so mean played by Jon Lord. Killer vocals by Ian Gillan, deadly bass by Roger Glover, crazy drums by Ian Paice and awesome guitar by Ritchie Blackmore. Go to you tube and take a look at how Jon rocks that organ.
Ian Gillan was the original Jesus Christ off the Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Jesus Christ Superstar, his vocals made that album and a lot of kids back then bought Jesus Christ Superstar.
My top three songs for In Rock are Speed King, Child in Time and Into the Fire. Other songs on the album are Bloodsucker, Flight of the Rat, Living Wreck and Hard Lovin’ Man.
