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.

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.

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!

If you're buying this then you already know what you are getting, the songs themselves are iconic. The CD itself however is not; the sound quality is uninspiring. This cd is a prime candidate for remastering, there is no auto-rip either which is a disappointment, if you are buying this for the content great, but for an album that sounds good on a hi-fi then no.

A superb collection of early 70s rock/prog demonstrating that Purple were melodic as well as thunderously loud in their heyday. Thunderous anthems such as 'Black Night', 'Woman From Tokyo' and the classic 'Child In Time' are all here but I have one slight quibble: Why was the excellent single 'Never Before' left off this compilation when it featured on '24 Carat Purple'? Crazy, guys.

This CD covers many of the iconic singles from the band in various incarnations. Good to return to some of the older tracks like 'Fireball' and whilst the lyrics may need some decoding the overall sound is excellent from the band. A good purchase.

I had two or three LPs of Deep Purple so I thought I would get a CD with their well known stuff on it, to remind me what they were about. I'm not disappointed with this selection, maybe a couple more tracks on it of their earlier stuff would have made it a 5*
