Synopsis

Amazon.com
In the '70s, Deep Purple carved their niche in hard rock royalty with a heavy guitar-driven sound. The monstrous riff that opened "Smoke on the Water" became the first thing many aspiring guitarists learned to play. Songs like "Woman from Tokyo" and "Highway Star" epitomized the screaming rock vocalist of the '70s, and many of Deep Purple's finest tracks were graced by Ian Gillan's voice (who also lent his wail to the Jesus Christ Superstar album.) David Coverdale, who later sang in Whitesnake, also provided front man duties for a while. Both "Space Truckin'" and "Highway Star" were party favorites, the latter's breakneck speed and ripping guitar leads making it a testosterone-charged force to be reckoned with. In addition to its classic appeal, "Deepest Purple" is a veritable shrine to the guitar work of Ritchie Blackmore. --Steve Gdula

CD Reviews

A very good introduction to the band in the 70's
Guy Campeau | Stoneham, Québec Canada | 01/12/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"And if you like it, just buy all the studio albums from this glorious period in the band history...In Rock, Fireball, Machine Head, Who do you think we are, Stormbringer and Burn...there are excellent tracks there that you won't find on this very best of. If you want only one cd from Deep Purple, this is a very good choice. Recommanded."
