White Hot Stamper

Deep Purple
The Book of Taliesyn

  (Item #: deeppbooko_1902_1908) 

Our Price: $299.99

  • An insanely good sounding copy with Triple Plus (A+++) sound from start to finish and the first copy to ever hit the site!
  • Both sides here are big, full-bodied, Tubey Magical and present with plenty of extension on both ends
  • Exceptionally quiet vinyl throughout -- Mint Minus to Mint Minus Minus
  • "By the time 1972 came around, Deep Purple immersed themselves in dumb lyrics, unforgettable riffs, and a huge presence, much like Black Sabbath. The evolution from progressive to hard rock was complete, but a combination of what they did here -- words that mattered matched by innovative musical passages -- would have been a more pleasing combination." - All Music

Super Hot Stamper

Deep Purple
Made In Japan

  (Item #: deeppmadei_1905_1907) 

Our Price: $199.99

  • This outstanding UK pressing earned solid Double Plus (A++) grades for sound or BETTER on all four sides
  • Surpisingly clean, undistorted sound for a live album, yet every bit as big and lively as a Hard Rockin' Live Album should be
  • In terms of Tubey Magic, richness and naturalness, Made In Japan might just be The Best Sounding Live Album of All Time
  • Rolling Stone: "They've done countless shows since in countless permutations, but they've never sounded quite this perfect."

Super Hot Stamper

Deep Purple
Fireball

  (Item #: deeppfireb_1906) 

Our Price: $179.99

  • Outstanding sound throughout for this original Harvest import pressing, with each side earning solid Double Plus (A++) grades for sound - exceptionally quiet vinyl too
  • This LP was simply bigger, richer and clearer, with more Tubey Magic, less smear and less congestion than most of the other vintage imports we played
  • One of Ian Gillian's favorite albums, "... it was really the beginning of tremendous possibilities of expression."
  • 4 1/2 stars: "One of Deep Purple's four indispensable albums (the others being In Rock, Machine Head, and Burn), 1971's Fireball saw the band broadening out from the no-holds-barred hard rock direction of the previous year's cacophonous In Rock."

Deep Purple

  (Item #: deeppdeepp_1908) 

Our Price: $74.99

  • An outstanding Harvest UK import pressing with solid Double Plus (A++) sound or close to it from the first note to the last
  • Both sides here are clean, clear, full-bodied and present with a solid bottom end and huge amounts of energy
  • 4 1/2 stars: "Deep Purple was highly prized for many years by fans of progressive rock, and for good reason... the group managed to create an LP that combined heavy metal's early, raw excitement, intensity, and boldness with progressive rock's complexity and intellectual scope, and virtuosity on both levels."

Deep Purple - In Rock

Our Shootout Winner from 2016

  (Item #: deeppinroc_2016) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Rock and Pop Hall of Fame.

The best pressings give you exactly what you want from this brand of straight ahead rock and roll: presence in the vocals; solid, note-like bass; big punchy drums, and the kind of live-in-the-studio energetic, clean and clear sound. (AC/DC is another band with that kind of live studio sound. With big speakers and the power to drive them YOU ARE THERE.)

Deep Purple - Machine Head

Our Shootout Winner from 2013

  (Item #: deeppmachi_2013) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Rock Hall of Fame and another in the long list of recordings that really comes alive when you Turn Up Your Volume.

AMAZING HARD-ROCKIN' SOUND ON BOTH SIDES! We just finished another shootout for this rockin' classic and couldn't find another copy that even came close to this one. The sound is positively HUGE with real energy, presence and WHOMP. That's a BIG deal for this kind of music! This album makes our Top 100 list for one reason: it ROCKS like crazy.

Deep Purple - Machine Head

180g Rhino LP Debunked

  (Item #: deeppmachi_debunk) 



Sonic Grade: F

A Hall of Shame pressing.

I’m guessing that very few people have ever heard this record sound good. The average copy is nothing special, but this one is a boring, lifeless mess so save your money.

Deep Purple - Made in Japan

DCC Debunked

  (Item #: deeppmadei_debunk) 



Sonic Grade: D-

A Hall of Shame pressing and another DCC LP debunked.

Dead as a doornail sound. Disgraceful.

Deep Purple - Made In Japan

Live and Learn

  (Item #: deeppmadei_2006) 



This is a classic case of Live and Learn. What we had to say below about Made in Japan back in 2006 is just plain emabarrassing.

"This is a very nice looking EMI British Import Double LP that plays Mint Minus. This copy sounds tonally correct and pretty lively. The DCC may be better but it’s a LOT MORE MONEY I haven't played that record since it came out years ago so who's to say."

Ouch.

Deep Purple - Made In Japan

Our Shootout Winner from 2015

  (Item #: deeppmadei_2015) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Rock Hall of Fame and another in the long list of recordings that really comes alive when you Turn Up Your Volume.

Machine Head Live? That would not be far off, and the fact they brought MARTIN BIRCH along with them all the way to Japan in order to engineer a live album that was only supposed to sell to the Japanese market (!) could not have been more fortuitous for us audiophiles.

What to Listen For

  (Item #: deeppmadei_wtlf) 



Another in our series of Home Audio Exercises with advice on What to Listen For (WTLF) as you critically evaluate your copy of the album.

We've raved about a number of live albums over the years. Some of the better sounding ones that come readily to mind (in alphabetical order) are Belafonte at Carnegie Hall, David Live, Johnny Cash At San Quentin, Donny Hathaway Live, The Jimi Hendrix Concerts, Performance - Rockin The Fillmore, Live Wire - Blues Power, Waiting For Columbus, Get Your Ya-Ya's Out and Live at Leeds. I would be proud to have any of them in my collection.

Deep Purple - Mark I & II

Reviewed in 2009

  (Item #: deeppmarko_2009) 


This is a Minty looking EMI Import Double LP. It’s a compilation with a single LP dedicated to each era of the bands early history. As with any compilation some tracks sound better than others here but don’t let the German sourced tapes scare you. These sound like really high quality tapes, close to, if not the actual master tapes. The second LP features the most recognizable and probably best lineup (Mark II) the band ever had, with songs such as Black Knight, Speed King, Smoke on the Water and Highway star to name but a few.

Deep Purple - Who Do We Think We Are!

Our Shootout Winner from 2011

  (Item #: deeppwhodo_2011) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Rock Hall of Fame.

This British Import Purple Records pressing has a GREAT side one, and AMAZING A+++ side two, and VERY QUIET VINYL throughout! I don't think you could find a better sounding side two no matter what you did. The sound here is BIG, BOLD and LIVELY with real weight down low and excellent presence. It really JUMPS out of the speakers and fills up the room! Side one is very good as well, with all of the qualities described above. It doesn't fully open up the way side two does, but it still slaughtered most of the copies we played it against.
