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.

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.
