Background: Released in 1972, Purple Passages was a double album that was prepared for the American market, as it collected tracks from Deep Purple’s first three albums – Shades of Deep Purple, The Book of Taliesyn, and Deep Purple.
These LPs were deleted in the United States when the band’s American label, Tetragrammaton Records, went out of business in late 1969.
Rather than reissue the three LPs, the band’s new label, Warner Brothers, elected to release a double album containing the best of those three LPs, plus the non-LP track “Emmeretta.”
