DEEP PURPLE - Fire In The Sky [Japan Edition 3-CD Career-Spanning remastered] (2018) full

DEEP PURPLE stands alongside Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath as part of the Holy Trinity of British hard rock. The list of the band’s classic songs is legion, and the influence it’s had on successive generations of musicians is both enduring and remarkable.
To celebrate Deep Purple’s 50th Anniversary and their upcoming Japanese tour in October, Warner Music Japan just released “Fire In The Sky”, a career-spanning 3-CD box including the band’s best, fully remastered.

Each CD includes a selection of songs chosen from the 19 Deep Purple studio albums the band recorded between 1968 and 2013. All are original versions, not edited as happened on many ‘best of’ releases.
This three-disc box dives deeper into Deep Purple’s past with 40 songs and includes at least one track from every studio album through “Now What?!”

It also provides the ultimate showcase for the group’s various incarnations through the years. To date, more than a dozen musicians have appeared on a Deep Purple album.

Among the set’s many highlights are the title track from 2005’s “Rapture Of The Deep”; “King Of Dreams” from 1990’s “Slaves And Masters”; “Bad Attitude” from 1987’s “The House Of Blue Light”; “You Keep On Moving” from 1975’s “Come Taste The Band”; and “Hush” from the group’s 1968 debut, “Shades Of Deep Purple”.
Also included is the Kevin Shirley’s 2010 remix of “Dealer”, and the 2012 stereo mix for an early version of “The Bird Has Flown”.

DEEP PURPLE - Fire In The Sky [Japan Edition 3-CD Career-Spanning remastered] (2018) - back

I think “A Fire In The Sky” is must have Deep Purple collection. Especially Disc 3 is some kind of a great mix between all the Purple best songs and the ‘inside tracks’ you probably don’t have yet.
Highly Recommended
