* EpicRocking: Well... how much more epic can you get? The tracks are veritable jams that stretch out several minutes, like the 25:13 "Symphony No. 6, Opus 95" and the title track, which goes on for 51:43 straight ahead!! All this backed by a huge classical orchestra.

* NewSoundAlbum: This album was a genuine departure from the group's previous output and it still is in their entire repertoire. At the time it was also the first major collaboration between a rock band and a classical orchestra, despite minor predecessors such as Music/TheBeatles and Music/FrankZappa.

Interestingly enough, ''Concerto for Group and Orchestra'' happened relatively early in Music/DeepPurple's career - in fact the first album officially released by the classic "Mark II" line-up. The song "Child in Time" even debuted on this album, before it was featured again in a hard rock version on ''Music/DeepPurpleInRock''.

At the time of its release it surprised many because it was the first mainstream collaboration between a rock band and a classical orchestra [[note]] That is, if you don't count Music/FrankZappa, who already worked together with a classical orchestra on his solo album ''Music/LumpyGravy'' (1968) and also performed live on stage with the London Philharmonic Orchestra in 1968 at the Royal Albert Hall in London. However, the aforementioned concert would only become available on CD on ''Ahead of Their Time'' (1993). And, of course, Music/TheBeatles also asked Music/GeorgeMartin's help for orchestral accompaniment as early as "Eleanor Rigby" on ''Music/{{Revolver}}'' (1966), not to mention "A Day in the Life"'s exploding orchestra on ''Music/SgtPeppersLonelyHeartsClubBand'' (1967). [[/note]]. It paved the way for other famous rock/orchestra collaborations in the future.

* DistinctDoubleAlbum: Inevitable, seeing the length of the standard classical piece. (It is worth noting that the original vinyl release contained only the "Concerto for Group and Orchestra", and was released on a single LP, which required splitting the second movement across two album sides and stretched the limitations of what would fit on a side of vinyl. The other tracks have been added to reissues of the album. The entire concert takes up three [=LPs=] or two [=CDs=]).
