iTunes Review

As a greatest-hits album, this awkwardly titled compilation features incarnations of Deep Purple so dissimilar that one could easily mistake this album for a various-artists collection. After all, singer Rod Evans isn't singer Ian Gillan and certainly not David Coverdale, whose appearance for “Burn” takes the band to the end of its dominance. “Kentucky Woman,” “Hard Road," and “Hush” feature the earliest looks at the group, while “Space Truckin’,” “Woman from Tokyo,” “Smoke on the Water," and “Highway Star” feature the hard rock ensemble that became one of the early influences on heavy metal. Taken track for track, this is an excellent album; for a brief summary, it does the trick. Fan of the 45 single need this album. However, much of Deep Purple’s charms were its excesses. People who love the musical chemistry between Ritchie Blackmore, Jon Lord, and Ian Paice should also own Machine Head and Made in Japan at minimum, while fans of the original band should focus on Shades of Deep Purple

hush is a cover that was originally by a band my grandad was the guitarist of so 5 STARS

My First Album I Ever Listened To!

This is really a great collection of songs. I have to say my favorites are Space Trucking', Burn, Smoke On The Water, and the live version of Highway Star. Most bands cannot play live, but these guys are good. Iron Maiden is good live too. Classic Rock at its finest.

Deep Purple survived a seemingly endless series of lineup changes and a dramatic mid-career shift from grandiose progressive rock to ear-shattering heavy metal to emerge as a true institution of the British hard rock community; once credited in The Guinness Book of World Records as the globe's loudest band, their revolving-door roster launched the careers of performers including Ritchie Blackmore, David Coverdale, and Ian Gillan. Deep Purple were formed in Hertford, England, in 1968, with an inaugural...
