Fave Deep Purple Song?

Different of course. All three had a lot to offer. Hughes impresses me most.

I think Hughes has the most talent, but the least earthiness or soul or whatever you want to call it.

Watching GH play here is a joy..

Boring choice but black night and smoke on the water.
I don't know the full deep purple catalogue admittedly. But imo those two songs have stood the test of time better than some of there other stuff. I'm not saying there better, I just think much of there work now sounds a tad dated dare I say.

And who doesn't like playing black night, its one of those that is simple to play but totally satisfying when you really nail it with playing and tone.

I'm very partial to Sometimes I Feel Like Screaming by the current line up at the moment. However, the live version of Highway Star on Made In Japan always scores highly with me, it's the quintessential version in my view.

I really like Mistreated. Especially the live version in some place in USA in 1974. Perfect Strangers if it was just studio versions

Probably 'King of Dreams' from the Slaves and Masters album. I enjoy a lot of the more recognised tracks too, but Joe Lynn Turner just wins it for me.

Grew up with In Rock and Machine Head but my faves are: Woman From Tokyo, Might Just Take Your Life and Perfect Strangers which is the track Page and Plant would have killed for to have on Walking Into Clarksdale or whatever their album was called (and I speak as a Zep-head).

Demon's eye was always mine - it was a B side of Fireball so was accessible on the pub juke boxes and i think my most selected song ever. If you were ever in White's Bar Oxford in about 72

Too many to choose – plus it depends on mood/day/weather etc but Highway Star (Made in Japan), Burn (Made in Europe) and Speed King are always jostling for position.

Ah Yes Speed King. Many years ago a school friend introduced me to hard rock with Purples 'Deep purple in Rock'. First song side one is Speed King and that 5 minutes of gut kicking rock just floored me. In a way it kinda changed my life, as Rock music became and continues to be.

Love everything from Deep Purple but if I've got to choose, Woman From Tokyo and Highway Star from Made in Japan. Oh that's 2, sorry.

Many great tracks, but my absolute favourite is, Sometimes I Feel Like Screaming, huge fan of the guitar playing of Steve Morse.

So is it going to Black more or Morse then :angry:

Burn is my favourite one to play and being in a DP tribute I play most of the ones mentioned so far.
