Blackmore's playing is restrained too, it's pretty much the Jon Lord show. Mandrake Root is good, Hey Joe and Help are interesting but there were better things to come. Hush is just awesome and when this pops up on the radio from time to time and my friends are around they actually like it.
It holds up very well and it's definitely a classic song. Location: west milford, nj. Count me in! To me, Deep Purple mark II is one of the best hard rock groups going.
Although I like all of their various lineups, the mark II lineup couldn't be beat. Location: moscow. The first one's a good record though easily the weakest of the first 3. Still a nice late 60's pshychodelic pop LP albeit with poor production and rather raw performances - Blackmore's playing only shows the incredible progress he made in just a year that followed. Help for me is the highlight - an incredible version that I enjoy more than a Beatles original!
Now the idea of doin' the song slow later repeated by Tina Turner and IIRC a few others was brilliant - like many Beatles early tunes it benefited greatly from slowing down and making you actualy pay attention to the lyrics. Brian Ferry did the same thing with You won't see me and improved the song beyond all limits. Location: eastern us.

Highway Star , Jan 2, Location: Atlanta. This is a great album. I have a Parlophone pressing which I bought in the late 70's. I was fully into Mk II Purple at the time, so Blackmore's strange guitar tone and the general "pop" flavor of the album was a big surprise.
My favorite track is "I'm So Glad" - blows the Cream version away in my opinion. I just love Paice's scrappy drum fills. Review: RIFF-it. RIFF-it good. Listen while you read! Add Comment. Anthem 2.
