Re: Deep Purple

man i love MkIII, they're great! Burn, Stormbringer and Made in Europe are all fantastic albums. Made in Europe is a greatly underrated gem of their discography

Re: Deep Purple

I never had a problem with their later line-ups, but I am always going to favor the earlier line-up I posted in the OP TL.

It's great to see some love for Purple in here.:cheers:

Re: Deep Purple

Deep Purple MK II was a great line-up, but I don't think they hung in there long enough for people to really appreciate them like they did with Black Sabbath and Led Zeppelin, whose line-ups both remained constant throughout most of the 70's.

Machine Head and Made In Japan are my two favorite Deep Purple albums, but Perfect Strangers had its moments too with "Knockin' At Your Back Door", "Perfect Strangers" and "Nobody's Home".

Lots of other great songs from them though... "Hush", "Burn", "Woman From Tokyo", "Stormbringer", "Fireball", Speed King", "Black Night", "The Mule", "Demon's Eye", "Mistreated"... I could go on and on.

Also, it's nice to hear the alternate (i.e. the Blackmore remix) versions of "Highway Star" and "Smoke On The Water" as a change of pace, as well as the studio version of "Child In Time" once in a while (which, ironically, is every bit as good as the live version).

:cheers:

Re: Deep Purple

Love me a lot of Deep Purple. To me, Machine Head = one of the greatest rock albums of all time!

Re: Deep Purple

I agree Lynch, I will add that I like Machine Head more than any single Sabbath or Zeppelin album, it has a personal connection as well for me.:D

KMET I think you hit the nail on the head, the changes in Purple definitely affected their status, but what a great list of songs you posted, any band would be proud of them.
