Released in Japan by Warner Music Japan under the title "Live in Japan", with different cover and liner notes claiming that entire show was recorded during Tokyo concert.

Released in USA in January 1973 by Warner Bros. Records, because of large sales of imports of the album.

Original release was 2-LP, one CD, including songs 1 to 7.
In 1998 EMI released an anniversary deluxe 2-disc set featuring three bonus tracks and a full-color booklet with extensive liner notes, however most of the in-between chat with audience (which is non the original issue and 1989 CD rerelease) is cut out.

Bonus disc track listing:
1. Black Night - 06:17
2. Speed King - 07:25
3. Lucille (Little Richard cover) - 08:03

Track 1.3 recorded Live 15.08.1972 in Osaka, Japan
Tracks 1.1-1.2, 1.5-1.7, 2.3 recorded Live 16.08.1972 in Osaka, Japan
Tracks 1.4, 2.1-2.2 recorded Live 17.08.1972 in Tokyo, Japan

There is a Spanish anniversary edition titled Made in Japan - 25º Aniversario Edicion Remasterizada with extra studio tracks on CD 2:
4. Highway Star (Remastered album version taken from the anniversary edition of "Machine Head" 1972 [1997]). (6.08)
5. Child in Time (Remastered album version taken from the anniversary edition of "In Rock" 1970 [1995]). (10.18)
6. Smoke on the Water (Remastered album version taken from the anniversary edition of "Machine Head" 1972 [1997]). (5.42)
7. The Mule (Remastered album version taken from the anniversary edition of "Machine Head" 1972 [1997]. (5.22)

10. Space Truckin' (Remastered album version taken from the anniversary edition of "Machine Head" 1972 [1997]). (4.34)

A little known fact: Rumors say that during the song ''Child in Time'' a man commited suicide. It is still not proven if the noise that's supposed to be a gunshot, really is a gunshot or the organ.
