Tracklisting & More Information

This is the first time Deep Purple's surviving BBC Session recordings have been rounded up. Cutting their first session even before their debut single Hush was released in the summer of '68, the band were frequently visitors to the BBC studios over the next two years. Several of the versions here have never been issued before, others were never recorded elsewhere. The material ranges from energetic guitar heavy versions of early tracks through to a blistering set from the monumental In Rock album. This deluxe 2LP / 2CD box set also includes a detailed booklet with full session details and history.

Review
"The story of Deep Purple's transformation from psychedelic rock popsters to a heavy rock band gets better with every telling. And this two-CD set is the perfect soundtrack to the saga, not just because the speedy nature of the BBC sessions generally sorted the musicians from the wannabes, but because these Purple sessions are a fascinating insight into the band's development at a crucial time." --Classic Rock Magazine, October 2011
