3 stars Lest anyone be deceived, this is only an OKAY album, and certainly no masterpiece. It's good to see people supporting Deep Purple - a band's I've admired for over 25 years - but this isn't representative of their later work, and isn't even very progressive.

What you'll find here is decent late-60's rock. The sound is dated, but there is competent guitar and keyboard work. With singer Ian Gillan not yet in the band, and the band trying to find it's sound and songwriting skills, one should not expect too much at this early stage of the band. Better to get into their later material before settling with this.
