Not cheap but brilliant collection

"I'm surprised that this CD wasn't rated before. This CD seems to be the best choise for those people who would like to know, how did Hard Rock style appear and what was played in 1968-75. For such persons it should be interesting to listen to Uriah Heep and Led Zeppelin from the same period too. At the same time this CD is one of the best illustrations of Deep Purple progression covering all their milestones before the 1st split. It is not very long as e.g. 4 CD's set Shades (1968-1998), which is more interesting for collectors, and much more varicoloured than e.g. Deepest Purple or When We Rock... and other 1 CD compilations. Anthology is a perfect variant for those, who love Deep Purple but would like to limit their CD collection by several items. If it was 1-3 dollars cheaper, it could be 5 stars rated."
The best Deep Purple bang for the buck

"This is a definitive Deep purple collection featuring all their best work. I first owned this collection on tape, and now on CD. Unless I had already decided to buy all Deep purple CDs, this is the collection I would buy."
This is much better than any Beatles anthology series!
