I listened to this and somehow didn't feel right. The CD gathered dust for more than a year, and when I "rediscovered" it, didn't feel like playing it. "Made in Japan" however...
The simple fact is that Deep Purple's music should be listened to the way it was intended to. I still maintain that their live albums are their best albums. Check out the excellent digitally remastered "Made in Japan" CD, or check out the DVD section. This one is best avoided.
This is a hatchet job on at least two levels, and deserves to be avoided at all possible costs.
More of a Light Pink . . .
Don't get me wrong: I'm a great fan of Deep Purple, especially the Mark 2 line-up that was around when I was at University. But if someone asked me to recommend an album as a good introduction to Deep Purple's catalogue, it wouldn't be this one, despite the title. The reason is that it is simply not representative of what made them tick.
For me Deep Purple were about long and loud, extended and exuberant. They achieved this through brilliant guitar solos, highest-quality keyboard playing, improbable vocals and a general sense of all-round flamboyance. This album has some of their best tracks cut down, edited and stopped before they get going. 30 kick-offs and no results.
Or to put it another way, here we have a group that made its name through extended album tracks being represented through 30 singles. It's not how I remember them.
So for me, whatever this album is, it certainly not 'the very best of' Deep Purple. To be truly what is advertised on the cover it would need to have half the tracks and twice the length for each (on average).
The music that is here is, of course, very good. This is, after all, one of the best and most enduring groups that ever cut a rock record. It is one of the tightest bands ever in terms of its playing and (Ian Gillan especially) its singing.
Even so, I rarely play this album.Read more ›
