The Collection – Deep Purple

There is a veritable plethora of Deep Purple ‘best of‘ collections available. That said, this is not a bad compilation by any means not least because it has both 'King of Dreams' and 'Loosen my Strings' on it, not just the usually expected tracks. As such, it does represent reasonable value for money.

I like that 5 of the tracks are live, and the slow guitar intro to 'smoke' is excellent. The rest of the tracks are from later albums. To summarise, this collection is that bit different and rather enjoyable. The other good news is that ‘Unlimited’ members get to stream and listen to most of the album for free (check for the correct listing).

Yes, I know it's hard to believe, but there's yet another CD doing the rounds, made up of the material that Deep Purple recorded during their brief tenure on RCA. I couldn't even begin to add up the number of compilation albums made up of this music, from "Purplexed" onwards. This one, however, is one of the shoddiest.

it's up there with the "Steel Box" collection, lacking anything remotely resembling information about where and where it came for. It does, however, have a couple of misleading paragraphs that might make you thing you're getting early versions of 'Smoke On The Water', 'Highway Star' and 'Child In Time', the cannily placed first three tunes here.

However, it gets bonus points for some Joe Lynn Turner tunes, but then loses a point for the brass neck of the sleeve designers bagging a credit! For shame. Oh, and Amazon are calling this "Collections" to differentiate it from all the other DP albums called "The Collection". Still, to kill a hour, a good bagsy.

Amongst the myriad of DP comps is this. Not a bad compilation by any means and a bit different than the usual tracklist.

Five of the songs are live, presumably with Morse on guitar as they are dated '94. Makes a change from Blackmore. The slow guitar intro to 'smoke' is ace. The rest of the collection is from their later albums.

Overall, this collection is a bit different and enjoyable. Worth your cash.

It's a new and great collection of songs of Deep Purple. I've got many recopilation cds of the Best Band in the World, and I never think I waste my money when I buy a new cd of the group, because I love them.
