OK I'm a bit curious now. I was never really into them for years but now I may
venture into things. Any particular recommendations? I really dig "Hush" and
loved it when they played at Live 8 in Canada. "Perfect Strangers" is cool too.

I don't imagine buying their whole catalog,but wouldn't even mind a best of
cd or two.

Further back in time is better as far as their back catalog goes but a compilation such as Deepest Purple may help guide you, but it depends if you want to listen to Gillen, Coverdale or Hughes on vocals. Or whether you're taken by Steve Morse's playing in which Banana would be good place to start, or if you're like me It has to be Blackmore with John Lord on the keys for it to be purple.

Personally I'd recommend starting off with Machine Head.

Absolutely!!! a true classic album. Another track you cannot afford to miss out is "Burn" the classical leanings of the instrumental section are fantastic.

Into the Steve Morse area and the track "Sometimes I feel like Screaming!" is a beauty!

I think I may head towards the earlier stuff,Gillen/Blackmore. I forgot about
Machine head as well. I do like Morse but I'll gravitate to that stuff later.
I may very well end up with multiple albums ;)

There was also that clip that was featured in the movie "Twister" for about 30 seconds
that sounded really prog,I'll have to track that down as well.

*edit* I just realized this song is "Storm Bringer"

Stormbringer is coming up on a remastered version soon.

I'd go along with Machine Head and Burn, but also include Made in Japan and In Rock. In Rock in particular - it's like putting your head in a liquidiser - but in a good way !

Quote from: "Classic Rock Revisited"It's been nearly seven years since Deep Purple released their latest album, Rapture of the Deep, and when singer Ian Gillan was asked last year when that would change, he said the band is too busy touring to "feel the drive" to write. However, Ian has had a change of heart. The band will tour in Canada next month and then take time to work on a new album. They then will hit the road again at the end of the year before heading out on a worldwide trek in 2013 to promote their latest record, which is also due out next year. Stay up to date with the latest at Deep-Purple.com.
I used to have a signature

E.S.

There is a song called "smoke on the.." something, check out that first.

1st.album i ever bought was "In Rock",i was..ahem!quite young,and Paicey,s drumming was like nothing i,d ever heard before,i then bought "Made in Japan"and heard the "Mule"and that was it,...smitten ;) If you wanted a flavour of the band,and a taste of the current Steve Morse take on things,i,d suggest Around The World Live,a 4 dvd set with a booklet explaining the bands beginnings,line-up changes,etc!Its really very good,and the concert footage excellent!
M,lady....please come down off that roof!!

I went to see the current Deep Purple play the LG Arena in Birmingham last November.

I was expecting to enjoy the gig, but they utterly surpassed every expectation I had. What an excellent, excellent evening's music... it's all too easy to forget just how many top tunes these guys own, and they had no qualms about playing their "best of" at the gig. Deep Purple were comfortably my favourite gig of last year, easily surpassing a certain other gig at The Peel just before Christmas.

As to where to start with their catalogue, my recommendation is Made In Japan. These guys have always been best live methinks.

Cheerio,

Keith.
Who is this Hans, and why might he fail?
