4 stars To begin with, I have not heard the original Deep Purple release, so I can't really compare this album to the original. Still I find this album to be a very enjoyable one, most of the songs are excellent, and ofcourse the performance is flawless. My favourite songs here are the first 3 ones, Highway Star, Child in Time, and Smoke on the Water (which, ofcourse, is a classic). Strange kind of Woman and Lazy are also very good, with a blues touch to them. The weaker ones for me are The Mule and Space Truckin', which are rather annoying, plus The Mule has a Drum solo, which for me is almost always too boring, and Space Truckin' is made into a 19 min song mainly by adding more than 10 min of jamming, which is far too much to keep me interested in it. So, perhaps for most people it's better to stick to the original album, but for me this one works just fine.
