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.

Yes the riffs are great, the vocals superb but I think not enough respect has been given to the "backing band"
For me the best bit of "Smoke on the water" is the bit where the bass kicks in. And so it goes on with some of the best bass, keys and drums around, often lost in the overwhelming praise heaped on Gillan/Coverdale and Blackmore.

So listen to "that" riff once more but get behind it and listen, really listen to the other guys

this cd is a perfect starting point for anyone interested in genuine british rock as performed by one of the pioneers of the genre.Great songs performed with style and a rawness rarely achieved by any band.

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.
