Background: Released in 1969, Deep Purple was the third album by the band and the last to feature the band’s original lineup with bassist Nick Simper and vocalist Rod Evans.

The album reached #162 on the U.S. charts and did not chart in the UK. gave Deep Purple a 4 1/2 star review:

This is a record that even those who aren’t Deep Purple fans can listen to two or three times in one sitting — but then, this wasn’t much like any other album that the group ever issued. Actually, Deep Purple was highly prized for many years by fans of progressive rock, and for good reason. …This is one of the most bracing progressive rock albums ever, and a successful vision of a musical path that the group might have taken but didn’t.
