Deep Purple


Deep Purple - Deep Purple & Friends (Greatest Hits) - 2006 - Promo Sound Ltd

This is not an album by Deep Purple but a compilation of tracks from Deep Purple members' own bands or bands featuring DP members. There are four tracks from Deep Purple with the London Symphony Orchestra which are the nearest tracks you will find here from a Deep Purple line-up. Other tracks are from the Ian Gillan Band, Ian Gillan, Gillan & Glover, Ronnie James Dio & Eddie Hardin, Roger Glover & The Guilty Party, and the Steve Morse Band. If you are a Deep Purple fan you may have all these tracks. They have all been released on other albums and compilation albums. This is quite a good album. All of Deep Purple's band members are hugely talented musicians. Deep Purple was one of the greatest and most important bands of all time and is among the pioneers of heavy metal and modern hard rock. Albums like "Fireball", "Machine Head" and "Deep Purple In Rock" are some examples of the band's great hard rock classic albums

To buy albums of group behind ferry curtain (West) it was impossible in my teen years!
Its a amazing I remember first album of DP - "Machine Head", it was produced in Yugoslavia. Great moment! "Highway star" is in my mind forever.

Cheers, GP (No.1). I never heard of the "ferry curtain" before! You must still have a lot of catching up to do as regards these bands' albums. "Machine Head" is brilliant. TTU soon....P

Maybe Iron Curtain? Its mean a border between former USSR and its allies and USA & West Europe.

Hi,GP! I thought that "ferry country" was maybe a term used by people on your side to describe the "iron curtain". Simple mix-up! TTU soon!....P
