Note: There are 2 “THE GRAMOPHONE CO. LTD” label styles, the first one features the album title with brackets, thus: DEEP PURPLE (MADE IN JAPAN). This second version has no brackets and also shows ridges in the label area and is a contract pressing by Decca Records to meet the high demand for this album at the time. Note also that the ‘MADE IN GT. BRITAIN’ wording is missing from this Decca pressed version.
