5.0 out of 5 stars What is there to say? A lot actually... 3 Aug 2011
By Salmony
Format:Audio CD
The best Deep Purple compilation ever. Throw in an awesome cover (Better than the shoddy very best of cover) and you have the best album for cruising. Only downside is that Highway star gives me road rage now and then.

Tracks included:

Black Night - Bluesy hard rock, very catchy, epic mid-song solo and finishing fade out solo 4/5

Speed King - Holy crap, fast paced hard rock rampage, eardrum bursting vocals, cool little organ solo in the middle. What doesn't this song have? 5/5

Fireball - Classic sexy deep purple lyrics, fast paced and cool as hell, nice fade out organ solo 3/5

Strange Kind of Woman - Another classic deep purple song, lovely lyrics, stellar riffing 2/5

Child In Time - The first peak in the album, and holy crap is it a great one. Crescendo vocals, by far the best on the album yet, and an electricity fuelled solo. The song ends similarly to how it started, gives it a great nostalgic feel. Very experimental sounding. By far one of deep purple's best 5/5

Woman from Tokyo - Great song, the piano at the end is a welcome change because at this point in the album you've already heard enough riffing to last a lifetime. Great slow section in the middle. 3/5

Highway Star - By far the best song on the album, so good that newcomers to deep purple might want to skip to this first. Forget Smoke on the water, this is the definitive deep purple sound, a fast paced mash adrenaline rushes and cracking guitar soloing. A 6 minute 7 seconds roller coaster ride. The peak of all known hard rock. 6/5

Space Truckin' - Ridiculously cool, that's all that's needed to describe this song, another classic deep purple oldie. One of my favourites for jamming out to.

5.0 out of 5 stars Deepest Purple 12 Oct 2012
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Collection Of Deep Purple's Best Mk 2/Mk 3 23 April 2004
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Almost as good as Uriah Heep? 13 Jun 2013
Format:Audio CD
I hope the title of this review has grabbed your attention and no doubt many will disagree, but given the quality of some of Heep's music it is hard to disagree! Anyway back to the nitty-gritty, except for the tediously lengthy and over indulgent 'Child in Time' this is a very good compilation and to this day contains one of the best intro's ever, that being the start of 'Smoke on the Water' which is only bettered by Hawkwind and 'Master of the Universe'. Going back to 'Child in Time' why did superb bands of this era feel the need to inflict such unnecessary pain? If you have to do 10 minute songs the best way to do it is as Stray did on their stunning debut album. Listen to 'All in Your Mind' and you'll get the gist. Deep Purple recorded other excellent songs that should have been here instead and this CD would then have been given 5 stars. If you are looking for a place to get a taster for Deep Purple you could do a lot worse than start here but remember to skip track 5 or you may miss the rest due to having fallen asleep regardless of the volume. My only other gripe is the sound quality which could have been crisper. It sounds a little murky at times.
