5.0 out of 5 stars 8 Golden Nuggets from MK2 Purple's glory years., 26 April 2013
This review is from: 24 Carat Purple (Audio CD)
Originally released in 1975, this was an excellent snapshot of the classic lineup of Deep Purple (Ian Gillan, Ritchie Blackmore, Jon Lord, Roger Glover & Ian Paice) in all it's early 70's pomp.

The tracks are culled from In Rock, Fireball, Machine Head, their seminal live album Made In Japan and also their last effort (until Perfect Strangers the following decade) Who Do We Think We Are. Also included is a storming live rendition of their biggest UK hit single Black Night (which was left off Made In Japan) and subsequently appeared in Britain as an import.

Ok there's more comprehensive Purple collections around but this is a great introduction to the classic era of MK2 Purple if you're still new to the band (where have you been?).

What shines through on every track is the superb musicianship and virtuosity of five musicians who were masters of their individual craft and as a unit were a force to be reckoned with.

Highly Recommended.
