DeepPurpleTheCompleteAlbums19701976In a period where combined album collections are doing well, and because you have indicated a desire to note them as they arrive, I’m delivering this bit of news from Rhino.  On October 8, there will be a 10CD Box representing a strong period of Deep Purple, namely their 1970-1976 era.

There are plenty of Deep Purple strength that go into this collection and period.  Beginning with Deep Purple with The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra: Concerto For Group and Orchestra (actually 1969), with the studio issues (In Rock – 1970, Fireball – 1971, Machine Head – 1972, Who Do We Think We Are? – 1973, Burn – 1974, Stormbringer – 1974, Come Taste The Band – 1975), and two important live releases (Made In Japan – 1972, Made In Europe – 1975).

Personally, I don’t think there is a single one of us here (‘cept for Tanner, the 11-year old), who didn’t follow Deep Purple right along throughout all of these albums.  I know I did.  I can remember riding around town to not only Machine Head in the 8-track, but also the insane energy that emanated from Made In Japan.

So, if you don’t have all the albums listed here, and they were a viable part of your impressionable lives (they were mine), then this 10CD Box of Deep Purple: The Complete Albums 1970-1976 could be your nostalgic build.  For me, this albums contained in this box represent a kind of hiraeth. But I’m like that.
