Format: Audio CD
One of many Deep Purple compilations, but this one, originally released in 1980, stands out above the rest. The original vinyl release, which features what was then an unprecedented 62 minutes of music, is highly recommended, the front cover of the album is brilliant. The sound quality on the CD release unfortunately was poor. The twelve tracks included are mostly from the Mark II lineup of the band.

This is a recommended purchase for anyone who has all the original studio albums, or for someone who wants all the band's best work in one album. The tracks.
1 Black Night - 1970
2 Speed King (slightly edited) - 1970
3 Fireball - 1971
4 Strange Kind of Woman - 1971
5 Child In Time - 1970
6 Woman from Tokyo - 1973
7 Highway Star - 1972
8 Space Trukkin' - 1972
9 Burn - 1974
10 Stormbringer - 1974
11 Demon's Eye - 1971
12 Smoke on the Water - 1972

Tracks 9 and 10 are the Mark III lineup, which featured David Coverdale and Glenn Hughes in place of Ian Gillan and Roger Glover.
Apart from 'Speed King' all tracks have been preserved in their original full-length versions and there is not one weak moment on here.

The best Deep Purple albums to own are this, along with 'In Rock', 'Fireball', 'Machine Head' and 'Burn', along with some of their many live releases. Very highly recommended.

Have this album on vinyl and cd. It is music from the gods, so glad I bought the vinyl years ago. The only way to describe the music on this album is FANTASTIC. Buy it!

Format: Audio CD
Deepest Purple was my very first Deep Purple album. When I first listenedto it I was astonished by the bands musicianship. The tracks are all ofthe Mk 2a era except tracks 9 and 11 wich are Mk 3. I would say thesesongs represent this era probably the best, altough i do miss Fools andMight Just Take Your Life, but you can't get everything. Altough there areno bonus live tracks on this best of compilation, there is a remix ofSpeed King and probably of some other songs altough I can't hear exactly,wich should tempt for older purple fans who already have everything worthhaving. For beginners wondering what deep purple is, this cd is perfect.Buy it if you don't have any deep purple, or if you have everything else.

this cd is a perfect starting point for anyone interested in genuine british rock as performed by one of the pioneers of the genre.Great songs performed with style and a rawness rarely achieved by any band.

Yes the riffs are great, the vocals superb but I think not enough respect has been given to the "backing band"
For me the best bit of "Smoke on the water" is the bit where the bass kicks in. And so it goes on with some of the best bass, keys and drums around, often lost in the overwhelming praise heaped on Gillan/Coverdale and Blackmore.

So listen to "that" riff once more but get behind it and listen, really listen to the other guys

Excellent, as expected. My only thoughts are over all of these Best, Very Best, Greatest Hits etc is that they are more often just a collection of known tracks -often banded together because of the same publisher, promoter or band line up.
I would love to see the hits of Deep Purple #1, #2, #3 etc to get the same songs with my preferred vocalist, drummer or whatever.
-A problem that will always occur with a band name that has so many personnel changes over the years.

It is probably essential to have some Purple if you like Rock. I bought this for my iPod to basically cherry pick the best bits from my vinyl collection. Obviously the gatefold sleeves, inner sleeves and warm vinyl sound are missing, but otherwise it's what it should be - all the songs, proper versions, full length. Too many cobbled together live compilations are out there, so this is a good safe bet. Duh, duh, duuhh! Duh, duh duduhh! As they say.
