I bought the 3 cd set in a nicely presented black and gold digipack for £9.99. I must say it was a worthy purchase.

Each cd is mixed but the mix between tracks is very short. Each cd seems to start off sounding quite commercialised with heavy vocal tracks but then as you become accustomed to it's predictable and inoffensive style it will suddenly throw in an attention grabbing number. Cd 2 especially guilty of this but as a collective of tracks there's something for everyone here who has any interest in house music.

I question the continuity of the genre of deep house at times though as there's quite a few other genres of house thrown in but for variety it all works well. The cds have been mixed and compiled perfectly.

As a listener of deep and soulful house I was very pleased with the end result of each cd. Not every track is an instant winner for me, but for the changing of house sub genres and styles at the right time it does it very well in keeping your attention.

There's plenty of vocal, deep, dancefloor grooving, soulful, upbeat, classic combinations of house and garage here that make for a great collective of deep dance music. Pleasing to the ear and value for the price.

Pure Deep House is a 3cd set that throws in what it regards as the very best in deep house and garage. I can't agree with it's title wholeheartedly, as it's track selection is all over the place in terms of house styles. Deep house has always been a more underground, spacier sounding genre to what's on offer here. There's a few tracks that could probably be classed as being in the deeper vibe to everything else that's being mixed here, but you'll be hearing alot of more mainstream house than what's regarded as "deep". Especially those that are more familiar with listening to deep house in it's true form.

I can't help but feel that the "best of" and "pure" wording is "purely" for marketing and sale desirability. Fortunately the quality of sound, mixing and track choices are good enough to make it a solid house collective, but if you're looking for the best in pure, deep house then you may be better off looking elsewhere.

New and old stuff. All good tunes. You'll particularly appreciate the old stuff if you raved to it in the 90's...

I had high expectations for this album after reading all the positive reviews but turned out to be very disappointing. Maybe it's because i already have a lot of the better tracks on other CDs but i was still expecting it to deliver on being a great club mix. Unfortunately though the mixing style does not work very well for this type of music - the transitions are too smooth, there's absolutely no build-up over the duration of the mix and all three mixes feel very flat with a very random track order. CD3 especially is a disaster where they've bundled in lost classics from the early 90's with tracks as recent as from 2013 and it just doesn't work!

I must admit this is a fantastic album, all the tracks you would expect from a deep house album. The pre-mixed tracks are fantastic also. I do my own mixing and every song on this album is helping me out.

This sort of music is right up my street, dark, dirty deep house with some uplifting lyrics. Takes me back to Shindig!

Great track selection and lots of them. Nicely mixed together to from 3 CD's of just what it says - The very best of Deep House. To get 60 tracks for £10 is just a steal. Thoroughly recommended.
