"I wrote back in March that this set was very good (and it is to a point) but time limitations or no time limitations, any DEEP PURPLE compilation without "SPACE TRUCKIN'" is a JOKE. The idea that someone could sit there and say "Yeah, we'll include *TED THE MECHANIC*(from the "Perpendicular" lp) over SPACE TRUCKIN' to represent "The *VERY BEST* of Deep Purple" is ridiculous to me. They should've just titled this collection: "An Overview." Because without the classic (..really, a *perfect* song that defined 70's hard rock) "SPACE TRUCKIN'" this collection CAN NOT be truely be called *The very best of*"

"This album highlights the fact that the paice gillan lord blackmore glover line up produced the most vibrant essential deep purple sound of all. This is a great album to get a sense of the evolvement of deep purple, with speed king sounding as powerful as ever, and an impressive remix of highway star. I just wanted to jump in the car and drive! If I was still looking for some deep purple music (and you want to hear Space Truckin' which is omitted from this cd) I'd go for digitally remastered versions of In Rock and Machinehead, but if you're looking for the history of the band this this cd should satisfy."
