5.0 out of 5 stars HOW MUCH DEEP PURPLE DO YOU REALLY NEED?, December 8, 2005
This review is from: The Very Best of Deep Purple (Audio CD)
I'd say about this much. Sure. DEEP PURPLE ROCKS, but they can get on the nerves once you go beyond the surface. Ok, ok, all you hardcore PURPLE fans are probably already reaching for the not helpful button right now, well I'm not talking to you. I personally, like a fair amount of Deep Purple, however, to me they are nothing special. Just a good cut of ROCK to blast in the car once in a while. I have no need to delve, I don't care for the live stuff, and basically I just like the hits. SO here we are. This pack has them ALL!

HUSH, going back to the earliest "mach" of the band, this is a pretty rockin psychedelic sixties cut. You get the two powerhouse songs back to back, of course I mean HIGHWAY STAR and SMOKE ON THE WATER. You get a decent helping of DAVID COVERDALE era stuff... like BURN! You get the wierd seventies rocker MY WOMAN FROM TOKYO (This song has a special memory to me, which is why I like it.) You even get an offering from the 1984 outing KNOCKING AT YOUR BACK DOOR, which I have been known to leave on certain chicks voice mail around 4:30am. "It's not the KILL but the THRILL of the chase!"

Those are just the ones off the top of my head. No doubt this whole disc will rock. No live versions (good) and plenty of killer. No filler. You have my blessing on this one.
