Deep Purple - Nuff Said!
Deep Purple; what an excellent band. The Deep Purple* line up has but a few incarnations, referred to by DP* fans as Mark 1, 11, 111, 1V, V, V1 and V11. Each line up being great, fans (as fans will) debate which line up was their favorite and/or the best. Many listeners do not realize how important this band was in paving the way for future Metal and Thrash bands. Metallica, Anthrax and many others will all say that Deep Purple was a favorite and major influence. Deep Purple also gave us, Blackmore's Rainbow (lead by Ritchie Blackmore) and White Snake (lead by David Coverdale). Roger Glover went on to produce for Nazareth and Judas Priest. In short this band was always a very rich ebb and flow of talent. This CD, Deep Purple:The Very Best Of, is a requirement of all who love Hard Rock and Heavy Metal. If you're younger and never listened to these songs, 1. you will love them and 2. you will see what inspired monumental rockers from, Metallica, Anthrax, to Slipknot. Buy, listen, and enjoy!Read full review
