"In 1984, the "MK II" version of Deep Purple reformed. This is the most famous line up of Blackmore, Lord, Paice, Gillian and Glover. They put out two studio albums (Perfect Strangers and House of Blue Light) and one live album (Nobody's Perfect). Then they broke up again (later to reform, with and without Blackmore). The two studio albums had some very good songs, but alot of filler (that is the way most Deep Purple albums were). The live album was taken from a tour in 1988. It was poorly recorded and poorly edited. About 75% of the tracks were reworks of the seventies classics. Some were done well, others were not. The live album was released in two different versions, a single CD and a double CD.This CD (Knocking At Your Door) is a "greatest hits" of the eighties CD, taken from the three albums released in the eighties. Obviously, any of the old classics will be the new live versions. This CD does succeed in picking off the better material of those three albums. But, it doesn't get all the best stuff. The nice thing is that it leaves off most of the junk.If you want to get a good idea of what Deep Purple was like in the eighties without spending alot of money, this is a good CD to get. You get most of the good material without the clunkers, but you do miss out on a few things."

"sweet lucy was a dancer but none of us a chancer because she was a samurai!!! from the first song you will remember one track form the album Perfect strangers 1984.
The band had disappeared from the international Rock-scene after their final album 1975 with the death of Tommy Bolin back in 1976. Led Zeppelin & Black Sabbath also experienced their final days, both were also coming to an end 4 years later. In 1984 the Reformation of Deep Purple Mark II (V) was a huge success in the US, Japan, Australia and Europe. This album is a compilation of Perfect strangers, house of blue light and nobodys perfect albums...you will not doubt them."
