From, the ultimate progressive rock music website

2 stars Two songs taken from Deep Purple's debut album, SHADES OF DEEP PURPLE released in 1968. This features the Mark 1 lineup of the band with Blackmore, Evans, SImper, Paice, and Lord. While I appreciate the vocal talents of Jon Evans, I still prefer Ian Gillian. Side 1 is "Hush", a full out rocker which is one of my favorite DP tracks. Side 2 gives us a more mellow, and basically very 1960's flavored "One More Rainy Day". This song reminds me of THE MOODY BLUES or THE MOVE. There is not much Progressive about these songs. In a strictly rock and roll context I would give "Hush" 4 stars and the flip side 3 stars. But, as this is a Prog page, 2 stars seems about right.
