"I would venture to say that Deep Purple is a bit more than a couple of iconic guitar riffs. Their string of albums from In Rock through Burn were all great.....I would say just a step below Led Zeppelin & Black Sabbath during the same time…"
"I'm not much of an audiophile, but this edition seems much fuller to me than the CD I had, which sounded a bit thin. I mainly bought this set for the second disc of extra songs which includes "Oh Woman Oh Why" & "Little Woman…"

"It's truly incredible, how his attitude seems to have changed. He PERFORMED with the remaining Monkees, something I swear he said he would never do again after the '80s. It is baffling. As for the meeting, he was so gracious and answered…"

And, being a woman/girl of a certain age, I have a favorite and that favorite is Mike.…See More
