2 stars This probably was the essential collection of DP Mark II containing their most popular songs back in 1980. Almost a CD-length of this album was a perfect introduction to DP fans, especially adolescents. However, exactly because of density of music, LP vinyl (at least, Yugoslavian pressing) suffered from very bad sound and shallow audio spectrum.

As for the selection of tracks, it fails to represent Mark I period and the last one with Bolin, so it focuses mainly on the heavy metal period with Gillan. Since the missed two periods contain some serious prog-related contributions, "Deepest Purple" is hardly interesting collection out of the scope of classic hard rock/metal or of the dedicated fans. More comprehensive and better remastered collections would appear later on...
