1975 reissue of essential Hard Rock album. Record is still in glossy condition with both centre labels intact. Some light surface marks are visible but do not affect the overall play. Gatefold sleeve does have some minor wear along edges and corners but overall still intact.

Sometimes you gotta just pick a classic, and it doesn't get more classic than Deep Purple's fourth record "In Rock". Released in 1970 this album would feature the legendary MKII line up of the band and captures the band at their peak. "In Rock'' would see a departure from the bands output of the late 60's with a way more heavier straightforward hard rock approach, with loads wild guitar solos, hammond organ freakouts  and killer jams with classics such as the “Speed King”, “Black Night” and the totally epic “Child in Time”. This is definitely a fan favourite amongst all purple fans and definitely an essential record for your collection.

This is late 1975 UK pressing.

The main difference from the previous issues:

1) Runouts: A2 / B3. A new master for Side B (B-3) was used for this reissue. The master was cut by  Harry T. Moss - EMI mastering and cutting engineer.
2) The figurate sections, logo and the rim text on labels are in a dark green shade compared to previous ones.

Other main identifiers:

- Laminated gatefold sleeve with 'Printed and Made by Garrod & Lofthouse Ltd.' in most cases have an additional fine keyline box around the EMI and Harvest logos on the front of the sleeve. But the 1st sleeve variant with a single bold line around the logos is still valid.
- EMI paper inner sleeve with 'Care Of Your Record' box high centre, 'Important Notice' box in low centre and  'Made In Great Britain' above 'Patent Nos. 1125555' near the bottom  (since about late 1974 to early 1977)
- The upper rim text begins with 'EMI RECORDS LTD.' (since about May 1974);
-The inscription 'MADE IN GT. BRITAIN' is inlined with the lower rim text (at the end) under the circular bottom line (since about May 1974 to about 1981);
- Runouts: A2 / B3 (since about mid 1975 to 1976);
- The boxed 'EMI' logo on labels (since about June 1971);
- Song listing in 2 lines on both sides (since about the second half of 1972);
- The Ⓟ icon (under the 'Side A/B' indicator on labels) is the same size as the year '1970' to the right of it (since about December 1970 / January 1971).
