5.0 out of 5 stars Deepest Purple, 12 Oct. 2012
This review is from: Deepest Purple - The Very Best Of Deep Purple (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.
