Today, I found a record at goodwill called "the best of deep purple". I looked and looked and determined it was probably not the "deep purple" we all know but at $0.75 I picked it up anyway. Got home and played it. Sure enough, it was the band we know. It's just that it is full of songs made famous by other artists. Mostly Jimi Hendrix. One song was "Help" by the beatles. It seems that this beast was an initial set of songs to show the bands talent. It is obviously a low budget production. Some places the signal level is below the noise level. It is called the "scepter records citation series". I'm thinking it is a very rare thing but really have no clue. Any ideas? Despite the recording quality I enjoyed the hell out of it.
(Vinyl is a wonderful thing!)
