3 stars Nice debut album by Deep Purple, but not comparable with the rest of ther career. In this album and in the next two albums we are in the period of Deep Purple Mark 1. The sound is very classical - keyboard oriented, and that means the leadership of Jon Lord in the band's musical tastes. The tracks are good, but the sound quality is quite bad. The nice tihing of this album is the atmosphere that it creates: it makes you feel you are back in the late sixties. I appreciate Rod Evans vocals very much. It is not in Deep Purple style, but it fits the taste of this album very well.

In the end, something far away from the real Deep Purple, it is a good album to have if you want do thiscover the origins of this great band, in particular the classical tastes of Jon Lord's arrangements. 3 stars are perfect, i think.
