1973’s Who Do We Think We Are was another platinum plus venture for Deep Purple. While always being on top of their game, with multi-smash albums and huge arena concert tours, this was the last album to feature the legendary line-up of Ian Gillian, Ritchie Blackmore, Roger Glover, Ian Paice and Jon Lord. Woman From Toyko was another anthem smash for the band as it helped soar this album to the upper rungs of album and radio airplay charts worldwide. The thunderous drum and bass interplay, along with Blackmore’s familiar guitar riff, set this album off to a grand start, and even three decades later, it still has people stomping their feet and dancing to the groove Other killer tracks like Rat Bat Blue, Super Trouper and Our Lady rank this album as one of their best and truly a fan favorite from these legendary metal kings.
