After some Twitter prodding, Cultural Offering’s Kurt Harden persuaded me to add a Deep Purple list to his impressive collection of Essential Mixes:
- And The Address, Shades of Deep Purple, 1968
- Hush, Shades of Deep Purple, 1968
- Hard Road (Wring That Neck), Book of Taliesyn, 1968
- Speed King, In Rock, 1970
- Child In Time, In Rock, 1970
What a fantastic exercise. I thoroughly enjoyed listening back to all the albums (up to 1984) with more mature and discerning (well, maybe) ears.
The full list is here.
