2 stars This hit song "Hush" on this single gave much popularity to these guys, and it's often seen as their most classic track of the first line-up of this band. The songs have great raw 60's sounds, but as compositions these are quite unimaginative rants, B-side being in my opinion little better than the A-side. The studio album from where these tracks where picked up has much more interesting tunes like "Mandrake root" and "And The Address", which presented the palyers ability of creating interesting improvisational jamming. For the serious vinyl collectors focused on this band this is ofcourse a nice purchase target.

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.
