Customer Review

on 16 January 2010
Frequently underappreciated while Sabbath and Zeppelin garner most of the 70's rock era plaudits. Yes the second, Gillan, incarnation was the most powerful but this collection proves there was plenty to admire in the rest of the band's output. I might have trimmed one or two numbers and slipped on the Coverdale era 'You Full No One' (Yes he was a colossal pain in the backside but the man could sing!). Some live versions are a step up from the studio offerings but this is a very fine selection stretching from their kickstart with the hit recording of Hush to the, presumably, final phase with Ted the Mechanic and Perfect Strangers (Another record that they could have happily included another track from). Outstanding value. Lazy, Space Truckin', Highway Star and Wring That Neck are all present and correct making this a more complete and satisfying set than the other single disc 'Best of' compilations doing the rounds. If you're looking for a single Purple purchase go for this one. If you're not sure about the band get it anyway and be delighted that you took the chance.
