Review by Chris H
PROG REVIEWER
3 stars As expected, virtually every song on this compilation is from the classic line-up with two exceptions that feature Coverdale on vocals. Almost 80 minutes of music, this is an excellent compilation in the way of songs, containing some of their biggest hits including "Hush", "Highway Star", "Child In Time" and "Smoke On The Water". I don't agree with "Demon's Eye" being present, but one not so great song can't ruin an excellent overall compilation. And, like Barla said, the whole Steve Morse era is missing here so the studio albums will have to be substitutes if you want to find that era of Purple.

All in all, a good introduction to the sound of Purple, but some eras are completely unrepresnted here, so if you are looking to further your collection of the Purple this isn't a must have.

3 stars Another Deep Purple compilation, that, to my surprise, wasn't in this site. As I expected, almost all the songs are from the "classic" line-up (Blackmore/Gillan/Glover/Lord/Paice), which was obviously the most sucessful one and (IMO) the best period on DP's career. From that period here are some ... (read more)
