4 stars A very good collection indeed. Platinum Collection covers a wide range of Deep Purple but there probably isn't a completely satisfying compilation in the world. In my case, I was left missing such songs as "One Man's Meat" and the Tommy Bolin/Glenn Hughes classics "Dealer" & personal favorite "Gettin' Tighter". But you can't really complain. All the hits are here and even the earlier releases get a fair representation ('Shield', anyone?). It's amazing how good the band was (and to some extent, still is).

For any casual DP fan, this is an ideal choice. And if you've been living under a rock, it's also an excellent introduction.

[I do have one major complaint about the collection: the copy protection. Atleast my Platinum Edition is very picky about where I play it. But this might not be the case with everyone.]
