Rate a band out of 10: Part 4...
there were about six different deep purples, i suppose.
if you just look at the four albums made in the early 70s by the classic line-up, i'd say those are all pretty good records, & some of the songs on them are really inspired. i actually don't like machine head that much (i like it, just don't think it's a great album), & much prefer in rock & fireball.
i also don't mind perfect strangers, & i quite like a lot of tracks on house of the blue light, the mid-80s albums that line-up put out.
i'd rate that band an 8.
If I'm honest, I've only ever heard Machine Head and a few songs from their debut.share
8/10 because of the iconic tracks they recorded.share
Smoke on the Water is the only song I know of theirs.share
It was for me too, until I listened to all of their album, Machine Head a few days ago.share
I give them an 8
DP and The Rolling Stones are the only two bands I can think from the 60s that still tour and release new music.
And most of it is solid since guitarist Steve Morse joined the band in 1996.
Their 60s hit Hush is featured in Quentin Tarantino’s new film Once aupon a Time In Hollywood
