Murasaki were a Rainbow/Deep Purple influenced Japanese hard rock sextet formed by keyboard player George Murasaki in the mid seventies, and they released their debut album in 1975. Their Deep Purple influence was apparent from their debut album, with a great version of "Lazy". This second album was somewhat better, with the band showing some really neat guitar and keyboard parts, although it has to be said that they were a bit weak in the vocal department, but this can be excused - after all, they were a Japanese band singing in English! Subsequent albums were both live offerings, "Doin' our Thing at The Live House Murasaki", which included covers of Deep Purple's Fireball and ZZ Top's Tush and was released in 1989, and "Murasaki Why now...?", released in the mid nineties, with, yep, you guessed it, a live cover of Smoke on the Water! Not a bad band by any means, their albums are just a bit on the difficult side to find, as you can well imagine. It's not known if they're still in existence.
