DEEP PURPLE – “Deepest Purple – The Very Best Of”Oct 29th, 2010
This is the classic EMI TV compilation of DEEP PURPLE from 1980 revamped for it’s 30th anniversary to include tracks taking in Marks I and IV, not previously represented on the original album and a bonus DVD featuring TV performances, newly created clips and a new track by track interview with Jon Lord.The original “Deepest Purple” reached No.1 in the UK album chart in August 1980, displacing Queen’s “The Game”. It took a new release from AC/DC – something called “Back In Black” – to cut short Deepest Purple’s tenure at the top. “Deepest Purple” was also PURPLE’s third No.1 album, after “Fireball” and “Machine Head”. Now, with this 30th anniversary edition, this juggernaut of a compilation has been supercharged for the 21st century. The “30th anniversary edition” of “Deepest Purple – The Very Best Of” will be released on 29th October.
