At first glance, there's not much here for the DP afficionado... unless, of course, you've got every album they've put out. As if there weren't enough compilations of DP our there! Read on!
This compilation focuses on 3 albums: "Perfect Strangers", "The House Of Blue Light" and "Nobody's Perfect". But there are a few twists in this compilation!
Track 3, "Son Of Alerik", is rarely found on any compilation since it's a non-album track: it was the b-side of the track "Perfect Strangers". Clocking in at around 10 minutes, the slow-and-bluesy arrangements of this instrumental track features an incredible performance by Mr. Blackmore! A MUST for the completist!!!
Tracks 4,5 and 6 are lifted from the "The House Of Blue Light" album; but the versions included are from the "vinyl mix", which had shorter versions than the original CD pressing!!! If you have the remastered version of THOBL in the japanese mini-LP version, you're covered; but if you just have the "regular" jewel case version, the versions here are different...
The rest of the tracks (1,2,7,8,9) are lifted straight from their original albums (LP or CD).
Interesting for the completist, perhaps not as much to the occasional DP listener...

I agree with the first reviewer. There are no songs from Machine Head, Deep Purple In Rock, or my personal favorite Burn. How could you make a millennium collection without songs from these albums?

What is this???? I think that the main reason why this compilation bothers to the people is the title. THE MILLENNIUM COLLECTION??? It means is should stand for the material that made Deep Purple what it is. And this is not it. This should of been called "DEEP PURPLE; BEST OF THE 80s" maybe.
If you wouldn't buy the albums DP recorded during the 80s, then this CD could be a cool choice. But please, millennuim collection? :-S It's a bad-intentionated cd made by the record company, so DON'T BUY IT. They are tricking you. Check Out for others compilations.
