The Very Best of Deep Purple [EMI Single Disc] (Import) by Deep Purple on CD
After nearly 40 years and numerous line-up changes, Deep Purple remain one of the best bands to emerge from the late '60s Psychedelic boom before diving headfirst into the classic Hard Rock scene of the early '70s. Although their legacy remains the guitar riff from 'Smoke On The Water', their entire recorded output is still highly prized by fans, old and new. Spawning the careers of Ritchie Blackmore, David Coverdale and Ian Gillan (amongst others), DP have helped usher in Progressive Rock, Hard Rock and Heavy Metal almost by accident. Highlights on this Very Best Of includes 'Strange Kind Of Woman', 'When A Blind Man Cries', 'Speed King', 'Burn', 'Perfect Strangers' and, of course, 'Smoke On The Water'. EMI.
