Sunday Sounds 72 - Smoke on the Water

This week's Sunday Sound is a track that was released 40 years ago today, in a performance dating to July '73. Telling the story of the fire started by a fan with a flare gun at a Frank Zappa concert in the Montreux Casino during the 1971 Jazz Festival, it's an absolutely classic rock tune, with an instantly recognisable guitar riff.

To my shame (I suppose) this is one of those rare tracks whose title is actually more familiar to me than the music.
